Assessment & Accountability


Comprehensive Assessment System

A variety of quality assessments provide essential information in understanding student achievement and help to inform the decision-making process regarding instruction and curriculum. PJUSD educators use assessment data to: monitor continuous student progress and identify the areas of improvement, measure the effectiveness of teaching strategies, identify progress made towards meeting state standards, plan strategies for future goals, and to monitor annual strategic goals.

Key to PJUSD’s assessment system are the ideas that:

  • Assessment is a critical component of the instructional process
  • Collecting consistent, quality assessment data is important
  • Prompt and clear communication of data improves decision-making 
  • Decisions that are data-driven increase student college and career readiness


The Local Control Accountability Plan is attended to by a task force comprised of a variety of stakeholders who oversee the ongoing development and oversight of the Goals, Actions and Services contained in the LCAP.  Each California District must develop an LCAP that identifies actions and services that best support the five goals and federal categorical programs, along with ensuring compliance with state and federal regulations and laws. In addition, this department monitors school plans, including training for School Site Councils and is responsible for administering the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS).
