at RLPA will be taking the Smarter Balanced computer test of Math and English. This will be a test of students using
Common Core learning strategies. Computerized testing will begin on April 21 and continue through May 31. Different grade levels will take turns testing.

School Dress Code:

Parents, please help us maintain our school dress code. As the weather gets warmer students need to be more conscious about what is and is not acceptable to wear at school. Students cannot wear shorts that are too short and cannot wear t-shirts with inappropriate messages on them. If you have any questions about the dress code, you can speak with our Vice Principal, Mr. Cunningham at (916) 566-2720, ext. 66095.

Ready, Set, Test!

A new kind of testing is happening this year, replacing the previous Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. Our District will test between April 21 and May 29, 2015. Students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 will take the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). It's aligned to the new Common Core State Standards in English-Language Arts & Math. Science testing will be updated soon.

This year's results will set a new baseline for progress students will make over time. More information about results will be provided in the future - the California Department of Education is still working out final details. This year's tests are an important indicator of the readiness of students throughout California to be prepared for current college and career demands.

How can you help your child prepare?

  • Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing.
  • Discuss the new tests with your child. Make sure he or she is not scared or anxious about the new tests.
  • With older children, explain that the new tests were created to help him or her better prepare for college and career.
  • Explain to your child that the new tests will be more challenging for them, especially the first few times they take them.
  • Tell your child that you and his/her teacher have high expectations and that you are both there to help them every step of the way.
  • Review test results with your child, bringing your child's teacher into the discussion as necessary.

School Wide Kendama Ban


Due to an over abundance of issues related to kendamas being on campus, starting Monday October 28, 2013, kendamas will not be allowed on campus at Rio Linda Preparatory Academy. Students should keep their kendamas at home or risk them being confiscated by school staff. Unfortunately, the rise of problems such as theft, students/staff being hit by kendamas, and class distractions have alleviated to the point that a school wide ban has become necessary at RLPA. Any questions or concerns should be directed to school staff or administration.
