Jackson Avenue Elementary School, in partnership with the
community, will provide all students with a rigorous education,
including problem solving, character building and 21st century skills,
to successfully prepare them for roles as productive citizens.
Jackson Avenue Elementary has earned the Campaign for Business Education and Excellence Honor Roll Award for the second year in a row! This is an independent organization that reviews the data of all the schools. We were awarded as an individual school for excelling in raising student achievement and closing the achievement gap. We are the only school in the district to receive this award this year. We are proud to be recognized and thank all the students, parents and staff for their hard work and diligence in supporting all students in their education.

Our new state testing results will be coming out this Fall. We will analyze the results and continue to focus on the needs of all students and support programs. As with all standardized tests, the results will be utilized to make programmatic and instructional decisions about students’ learning. Per the State, the ELA and Mathematics tests are too fundamentally different for the old exams to make comparisons between old scores and new. These new scores are best thought of as a baseline or a starting point.
Please take a look at the “Test Scores” section of the District website (click on Test Scores for direct link or go to www.livermoreschools.com) for additional information on the assessments. Also, please click on the “SBAC Parent Guide for Grade 3-5” for more information.
