Are you in a crisis?
Don’t feel like talking face to face?
Send a text.
Text messaging is familiar, discreet, and available.  It is free and accessible 24/7.
Text LISTEN to 

Crisis Text Line (CTL) serves young people in any type of crisis, providing them access to free, 24/7, emotional support and information they need via the medium they already use and trust: text.  Here’s how it works:
●     A young person texts into CTL anywhere, anytime.
●     A live, trained specialist receives the text and responds quickly.
●     The specialist helps the young person stay safe and healthy with effective, secure counseling and referrals through text messages using CTL’s platform. 
CTL partners with existing organizations that are experienced, highly trained, and well-equipped to respond to teens in crisis: experienced crisis centers, youth-serving organizations, and experts in the youth and mental health fields.
Crisis Text Line started as an idea of several people at  Watch this TED talk to see where the idea came from:
This message is coming to you from The Alex Project.  The objective of The Alex Project is to give all youth in crisis the chance to reach life-saving help via texting regardless of where they live.  If my son Alex knew that there was a crisis center open 24/7 that would have welcomed a text from him, then he might still be alive today.  To learn more about The Alex Project:  The Alex Project Fund 501(c)3 provides financial support to crisis text lines.

   “Preparing Today’s Learners to be Tomorrow’s Leaders”
Dear Parent/Guardian:
The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, which has replaced the Standardized Testing and Reporting, or STAR Program, is the new state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. This year, CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests in English–language arts and mathematics as well as paper-based tests for science.
Last year, most students participated in a computer-based field test. This practice run of the test, though no scores were provided, allowed students to experience computer-based testing and new types of questions. In addition, the field test also helped evaluate how well districts technology systems could meet the demands of computer-based tests, and determine what resources teachers and schools would need to better prepare students for future assessments.
Lessons learned from last year’s field test will help ensure a successful, full launch of the CAASPP system this school year. In moving forward, students will take the test in 6th, 7th and 8th grades in the spring of 2015. To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you and your child can view the practice test online at the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Practice Test Web page at
Following the spring 2015 testing, students will receive individual score reports. Student score reports will be sent home to parents and will include an overall score, a description of the student’s achievement level for English–language arts and mathematics, and other information. It is important to note that these scores cannot be compared to scores that your child previously received on the STAR Program tests because this test is based on the new Common Core State Standards, involves different types of test questions, and will not be reported using the STAR Program reporting categories.
If you would like more information, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation, please contact Dawn Hernandez at 951-244-2123
