SBAC Testing

What is the SBAC test?

If your child is enrolled in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), and is in grades 3-11, come this May, they will be taking the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments (SBAC) for English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. This test has a tendency to raise anxiety in children and is almost certain to have a technological glitch along the way.
