Smarter Balanced Adopts Built-in Calculator

Beginning next school year, students may no longer be required to bring their own calculator to take the Smarter Balanced Assessment Tests (SBAT). The Desmos graphing calculator will be integrated into the computer based testing program. This means that students will not need to bring their own expensive graphing calculator to take that test. The Desmos calculator is available for free as a phone app or web page. Read more: Engadet,   Smarter Balanced

​Intervention Specialists Available

Ms. Mary Threlkel and Ms. Alison Gans, our trained crisis counselors, are available to meet with students struggling with social, emotional or personal issues in order to get help and learn coping skills. Students can sign up to see them in the Counseling Office or by referral from their counselors.  We are fortunate that the Acalanes Parents Club (APC) fully funds this shared position at our site.
