Leadership PSA links for May 2017







Link for AJHS "Bullying Survey" #2




Dear students and staff,

    The AJHS Leadership class has been working together to create a safe, accepting, and inclusive school environment. Not In Our School is a national anti-bullying program that we feel will positively impact school culture here at Aptos Junior High School.

      During the week of October 17-21, our Leadership class will reveal the results of our online survey, lead student activities, and share the PSA videos made on this important topic.


    Thank you for your support of our efforts to improve school culture.




The Leadership Team.

This year, the Aptos Junior High School “testing window” for CAASPP administration is scheduled for April 30th to May 1st. All 7th and 8th grade students will be tested in 2 subjects: English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. Both grade level assessments include constructed response items, selected response items (multiple choice), and a performance task. All CAASPP assessments will be completed using Chromebooks (computers.) Additionally, 8th grade students will also sit for the 8th grade level Science Test, which will also be completed using Chromebooks.  8th grade science testing will be administered in the middle May through student’s science class period.


New this Year: There will be a modified bell schedule for the 2 day testing period (bell schedule will be posted on AJHS website). It is important to note, the modified bell schedule will impact the composition of the regular school day and will have an impact on our ending time of school.  On April 30th and May 1st, students will be dismissed at 1:05. Transportation will still be provided for those students who take district buses.  Students who walk/bike or are picked up would need to leave campus at this time as well. This schedule allows for a “Pure” testing schedule where students will have the opportunity to solely focus on their testing.  Make up assessments will be administered, as needed, during the the next two weeks that follow continued to completion. The assistant principal, Mr. Platt, will notify students that require make-up assessments. Passes will be sent for students that require make-up assessments, and attendance will be monitored at the student services office. We will do our best to balance our need to complete testing with our desire to be respectful of student needs, the academic demands of coursework, and the instructors.
