What is ELPAC?Go To Top of Page

The ELPAC is the test that is used to measure how well students in kindergarten through twelfth grade understand English when it is not their primary language. The ELPAC is taking the place of the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). Information from the ELPAC helps your child’s teacher provide support in the right areas.
 
The Summative Assessment will be administered in Berryessa beginning February 5, 2018.

Principal's MessageGo To Top of Page

Our school, as well as other schools throughout the state, faces budget reductions that threaten to change our public education system in California.  At the same time, our mission to educate and inspire each student to succeed and contribute to the world around them has not changed.  Our challenge will be to continue providing a high quality education with fewer resources. 
As we have faced tough budget times in the past, Ruskin has continued to provide the best that it can, for all students.  This is possible because of our dedicated staff, our committed parents and our community partners who continue to give, not only financially, but of themselves.  If you have not had an opportunity, I encourage you to view the district's Budget updates.  It is indeed a daunting task, but one which we will overcome, by working together.
While we could certainly benefit from more resources, the fact that test scores continue to go up, speaks volumes about the commitment of our staff, families and community to ensure a rich and appropriately challenging educational experience.  The passion for learning runs deep.  It is this passion and commitment by our community as a whole, that will allow us to survive these unprecedented budget reductions.
Together, we will emerge a leaner, more focused school system that continues to improve teaching and learning for all our students.  Thank you for your continued support of not only Ruskin School, but the Berryessa Union School District.

Together, Everyone Achieves More!
