KSD News

Dear KSD Community,

In the months ahead, there are new initiatives on the horizon as well as new opportunities for our community. As we address these district level shifts we must remember that at the core of our operations are the people. Our students, our staff, and our parents/guardians. It is the community that makes us the KSD and by staying informed we will be more equipped and prepared to maximize the potential of each and every one of our stakeholders.

See below for pertinent information!

Take good care,

District Announcements

Interested in being a KSD Board of Trustee?

On Tuesday, May 17 at 6 p.m., the KSD will host a School Board Trustee orientation at the KSD District Office, 750 College Ave. The event will share more about the role and responsibility of a School Board Member. Every public school district is governed by a board of trustees, commonly known as the school board. These boards of trustees are representative of their community, putting the interest of students' futures first. This November three seats will be open for election.

2022-23 School Calendar

On Tuesday, April 12, the KSD Board of Trustees approved the 2022-23 KSD School Year calendar. Notable dates on the annual calendar include:

  • First Day of School - August 24, 2022
  • Non-Student Day - Teacher Work Day - November 10
  • Thanksgiving Recess - Nov. 21 to November 25 (full week recess)
  • Winter Recess - December 19 - January 2
  • Mid- Winter Recess - February 20 - Feb. 24
  • Non-Student Day - Teacher Work Day - March 10
  • Spring Recess - April 10 - April 14
  • Last Day of School - June 16

School Meals for All

Beginning in the 2022-23 school year the KSD will be required to provide all children access to a nutritious school meal. The purpose of this program is to establish a foundation for a lifetime of healthy behaviors, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and support cognitive development and academic success. The KSD is in the process of requesting a public bid for proposals for the district's school food program. This new requirement does not bring additional state funding but does provide flexibility to request a donation to access meals. More information to follow.

Universal Transitional Kindergarten

In the fall of 2022 the KSD will provide a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program for KSD students who turn 5 between September 2, 2022 and February 2, 2023. The program will be a new grade level for our students and will operate at our Bacich School site. The KSD will receive one-time start up funds to assist with planning and implementation of this new grade level. The program will expand over the next 4 years increasing attendance while offering our youngest learners an opportunity to be on a comprehensive elementary school site. This new program provides access to a strong preschool foundation for all age-eligible children.

Family Partners Meeting:

This Tuesday, April 26, 4-5 p.m., Sam Drazin of Changing Perspectives returns to Family Partners to talk about strategies to support our students with socio-emotional learning. The presentation can be accessed at in-person meeting at the district office 750 College Ave or via Zoom. The link is being sent via Parent Square.

ANNOUNCING California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), 2022

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, is the standardized academic testing that students across the state take every spring. After a pause for the last two springs due to the pandemic the state is returning to requiring Districts to administer CAASPP testing this year in an effort to provide valuable information about student progress. This tool is an online, computer-adaptive assessment in English Language Arts/Literacy (ELA) and Mathematics for 3rd - 8th grade students. In addition, the California Science Test will be required to be administered to all 5th and 8th grade students beginning in 2022.

KSD 3rd - 8th grade students may participate in the CAASPP testing between May 2 - June 3rd. See the site specific CAASPP testing calendars here - Kent CAASPP Testing calendar and Bacich CAASPP Testing calendar. To learn more, please read last week's newsletter.

Bacich Bears News

Andrea Cashman

Dear Bacich Community,

For this session of classroom guidance lessons, the Bacich students have been learning about identifying the size of a problem – small, medium and big. Please ask your Bacich Bear to show you the hand signals. The students have been taught that they can solve small problems on their own without any help from a grownup. And that feels really good to solve a problem by yourself!

The kids know to try one or two of Kelso’s Choices to solve these small problems. For example, if they are having a problem deciding on which game to play during recess, they can use “Rock, Paper, Scissors” to solve the problem. Try using some of the choices at home! You can watch Kelso’s video for deeper understanding and some good dance music that many of us will recognize.

Finally, our amazing 4th grade Bacich Peacemaker Team (BPT) members have been reinforcing Kelso’s Choices during lunch recess with Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders. The Peacemakers also look for excellent citizenship and award Bacich Bear Cards to deserving students. These leaders and role models assist with using our Peace Paths as well.

Let’s have continue to have an amazing spring semester!

When students walk or roll to school the event days there will be a table at the Sir Francis Drake gate with volunteers passing out their J.E.D.I. cards.

Kent Falcons News

Kent Principal Grant Althouse

Greetings Kent Community,

This spring we administer the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) at Kent for the first time since 2019. This statewide assessment tool is implemented to monitor our students’ progress in English Language Arts and Mathematics each year, and will give parents/guardians important insights into your child’s areas of strength and challenge. The CAASPP also provides our school with important information about our overall instructional strengths and areas for improvement.

CAASPP testing begins at Kent next week, and we want to support your child to be comfortable and confident while showing us what they know and are able to do on these important standardized tests. Please see the notes below to help anticipate what to expect with CAASPP testing at Kent starting next week, and to help prepare your child for successful test sessions.

  • Linked here is the testing schedule for Kent. Please note that students will be taking the assessment in their regularly scheduled English classes the week of May 2, and their regularly scheduled math classes the week of May 9.
  • The entire CAASPP assessment is computer based and includes two parts within each subject assessed, the Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) and the Performance Task (PT). The CAT includes short answer multiple choice, fill in the blank, and brief responses on each subject area, with the testing system adjusting stimuli based on how each student responds. The PT includes only a few prompts, though is intended to take a similar amount of time as the CAT, with more open-ended writing and problem solving scenarios presented to students.
  • All parts of the CAASPP test are untimed, and students will be provided with as much time as they need to complete the assessment. At the end of each testing period, students will pause the test where they are, and resume the next day. If students do not finish during the time allotted, we will have make-up sessions offered the week of May 16.
  • During advisory this week, we will be reviewing the testing schedule and discussing how to set up for success on the CAASPP this year at Kent. We will also be watching this video that explains how to access universal tools designed to help students while they are taking the assessment.
  • Testing sessions will be occurring during regularly scheduled English and Math classes, meaning that testing time will happen at different times each day for your child depending on the day of the week. Please ensure that your child gets a good night’s sleep each night, eats a nutritious breakfast, and has a plan for access to nutritious food during the school day, including school lunch.
  • 5th and 8th graders will be taking the California Science Test (CAST) the week of May 23, in nest class in 5th grade and in science class in 8th grade. The CAST is presented in an identical format to the CAASPP.

If you have any questions about your child’s testing experience or if you need to exempt your child from CAASPP testing this year, please contact our school site testing coordinator and assistant principal, Wendy Holmes ( or me ( We look forward to supporting our Falcons in their successful completion of their 2022 CAASPP assessment.

All my best,

Grant Althouse
Kent Principal
