Student CAASPP Score Reports will now be accessed electronically through the Parent Portal on our student information system. For complete details, please visit https://bit.ly/2XAimKH . ● To access reports, sign in at powerschool.eesd.org/public. If parents have not yet created an account, a unique access ID and password will be sent with the child's report card ● Student Score Reports are being made accessible to families as soon as student exams have been scored by the State. This means that some students may already have access to their 2019 test results in their Parent Portal while others may not. Tests are scored and released in batches and the process will be finalized over several weeks. The State does not notify us of each release. ● Parents should contact the Karen Wevers in the Instruction Department (email@example.com or 408-270-6827) if they are unable to access their child's report by the end of July, have any additional questions or need technology assistance.
