Curran Elementary will be giving the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) starting on February 17th. The ELPAC is the mandated state test for determining English language proficiency (ELP). It must be given to students whose primary language is one other than English. California and federal law require that local educational agencies administer a state test of ELP to eligible students in kindergarten—or year one of a two-year kindergarten program, also referred to as transitional kindergarten—through grade twelve. The ELPAC is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards and is comprised of two separate ELP assessments: The Initial ELPAC, and the Summative ELPAC.
MVUSD is accepting new and renewal inter-district transfer requests for the 2021/2022 school year. Inter-district is a transfer between schools in other districts. If your child is attending Curran on an inter-district transfer it is necessary that you renew your transfer request yearly. Transfer request are due by February 12, 2021. Requests made after February 12th will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If your child is on an intra-district transfer there is no need to submit another request. If you have any questions, please contact Curran's attendance clerk Wynne Shaffer at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (951) 696-1405 ext. 2294.
