New CDE Data Dashboard Launched -- Find CSD Student Data Quickly and Easily

California is field testing a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K–12 districts and schools – including ours. Called the California School Dashboard (Coming March 2017), the site features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English learning progress and suspension rates. Watch the video above to learn about how to use this new tool while it is still being field-tested.

Please Note:

As you may know, the majority of our schools are structured as “dependent charter schools,” which allows us to welcome students from throughout our county, not just our district boundaries. The Dashboard currently lists all charter schools as separate entities, whether they are affiliated with a district or not. As a result, a search in the Dashboard for “Cambrian School District” only brings up information for Bagby Elementary. To see other school site information, simply use the search bar and enter the name of the site. (Note also that there is no data for Steindorf, as the school is in its first year of operation).

  • Steindorf is for the Birds!

    Steindorf Fourth Graders partnered with the Wildlife Associates and, through sustained inquiry, hands-on experiences, and in-depth research, have learned about wind turbines and their harmful effects on local birds of prey. Today they presented their final bird-friendly wind turbine prototypes to the community and their mentors from the Wildlife Associates. Suggestions included turbines with horizontal blades, lights, and even turbines designed to look like giant purple flowers(purple repels insects, a bird food source)!
