FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL – Monday, July 23, 2018

Welcome Knights!  First day of school is Monday, July 23, 2018.  We will be on a Minimum Day schedule with dismissal at 1:05 p.m.  We encourage our students to arrive early Monday morning in full school uniform to review the Locator List where they will pick up their class schedule. Locator posters will be posted around campus with their 1st period room number.   We are very excited and look forward to a great school year.


California School Dashboard Release

Dear CPM Families,

The state of California released the California School Dashboard, which is the new accountability system for all California schools.  This dashboard contains data on schools throughout the state to provide parents and community members access to a more comprehensive picture of the performance of our schools.  This new framework is based on three principles.

  • The use of Multiple Measures instead of just one measure
  • A Focus on Equity for all student groups
  • Supporting Local Decision Making above state control

You can read more about those foundational principles here and here.

Please see an analysis below by our Principal Mrs. Gina Galvez-Mallari:

In 2016-2017 Castle Park  Middle continued to have the highest daily attendance in the district.  We have reduced the number of suspensions for the third year running and we also saw a significant increase in our students’ performance on the SBAC English Language Arts test with a six percent increase in students meeting or exceeding performance expectations. 
Two areas of focus for Castle Park Middle are a need to improve our students’ SBAC scores in Math and to continue to decrease our suspension rates.
