iLEAD assesses learners using both internal and statewide assessments as summarized in the table below. Testing is one way you can give back to our school, as the state of California requires all public school programs to assess their learners annually. Your child’s participation helps our program stay in good standing with the state, our authorizing district (Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District), our accreditor (WASC), and charter school support networks (CCSA).
For more information on each test, please click on the assessment link or view the testing section on the Hub (enrolled families only).
