A group of Richland School District students received perfect scores on their CAASPP Assessment tests recently. These tests are a measuring stick of how students are progressing in their educational journeys.
The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress tests replaced the STAR state standardized tests in California in 2013.
The tests cover English, mathematics and social science. According to Richland Superintendent Rosa Romero, the results for last year's tests were made available recently and four Richland students received perfect scores.
The students were Zeyla Espinoza, now a fifth grader at Golden Oak Elementary; Carlie Acosta, an eighth grade student at Richland Junior High; Jesus Sainz, a sixth grade student at Golden Oak Elementary; and Miguel Chavez. now attending Shafter High School.
These students' dedication to academic excellence is truly impressive and make them great role models for their peers as they work to excel.
"These students have showcased their exceptional abilities and proven themselves as top achievers," said Romero. She commented that the students have been working hard to ensure their success, especially after recovering from covid challenges.
"The Richland School District congratulates them and their families for their remarkable accomplishments and wishes them continued success in their academic journeys," Romero said.
