Understanding SBAC Test Results

Twin Rivers families and school staff will soon get the results of new computer-based assessments students took this spring. The district will mail them in late August. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) exams measure student knowledge of California's English language arts and mathematics standards in grades 3-8 and 11. The exams are aligned to Common Core State Standards which set higher expectations for students.

Students will receive an overall score for each subject, ranging from 2,000 to 3,000. Overall scores will be reported within one of four levels: standard not met, standard nearly met, standard met, and standard exceeded.

Preparing for the release of family student score reports, the California Department of Education has posted a new video titled, "Understanding Your Child's Score Report." This video describes and explains the new 2015 Smarter Balanced Consortium Student Score Report.

Immunization Requirements for School

State law requires that for unconditional admission to school, all students under 18 shall be fully immunized according to requirements of the California Department of Health Services (Ed.Code 49403 and 48216, District Policy 5141.31).

Immunizations required for admission to kindergarten:

  • Polio
  • DPT - Diphtheria/Pertussis (whooping cough)/Tetanus
  • MMR - Measles (rubeola)/Mumps/Rubella (3-day measles)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Varicella (Chickenpox)

Admission to 7th grade requires proof of immunization for:

  • MMR - booster (if not received at a younger age)
  • Hepatitis B - series of three injections (if not received at a younger age)
  • Tdap - booster (1 dose on or after the 7th birthday)

All other entering students not fully immunized according to district policy and the schedule provided by the California Department of Health Services may be admitted only on the condition that they obtain any additional immunization(s) within specified time periods.

Parents and guardians can also visit Shots for Schools for more information: Click HERE

Personal Beliefs Exemption (PBE)

Students may be exempted from the immunization requirement for medical reasons or for personal beliefs. Parents and the medical care clinician/provider must sign the waiver to obtain this exemption. A physician must submit verification for medical reasons. In the event of an outbreak of a disease for which the child has not been immunized, he or she will be excluded from school for the period of communicability.

The PBE form must be signed by both a health care professional and a parent or guardian when seeking an exemption from required vaccinations. The PBE form also allows for a religious exemption if the family's religion does not permit members to get medical advice or treatment from a health care practitioner. Effective July 2016, only a medical exemption will be accepted. In the event of an outbreak of a disease for which the child has not been immunized, he or she will be excluded from school for the period of communicability.

If you have questions about your child's immunization record and/or admission status, please contact your child's school.

School Wide Kendama Ban


Due to an over abundance of issues related to kendamas being on campus, starting Monday October 28, 2013, kendamas will not be allowed on campus at Rio Linda Preparatory Academy. Students should keep their kendamas at home or risk them being confiscated by school staff. Unfortunately, the rise of problems such as theft, students/staff being hit by kendamas, and class distractions have alleviated to the point that a school wide ban has become necessary at RLPA. Any questions or concerns should be directed to school staff or administration.
