Ocean Friendly Demonstration Garden Coming to PVHS

CeanothusThis Ocean Friendly Garden shows the beauty of native and climate-appropriate plants and their role in creating a sustainable landscape instead of high-water-use lawns. The soil is permeable and absorbs water, preventing runoff from the landscape into the storm drain and eventually to the ocean. This garden is designed to conserve and retain water, and provide a more natural habitat. Drip irrigation allows water to be applied directly to the plant base and percolate into the soil. The average water savings from an Ocean Friendly Garden in West Basin’s service area is 80%. Part of this garden was installed through a Hands-On-Workshop (HOW), in which professional landscape architects from G3LA and the Surfrider Foundation taught practical hands-on skills to the Palos Verdes High School students.

April 14 -22 | SBAC Testing

Click for more SBAC Testing info....

All 11th Grade students will be participating in the State Pilot Assessment Program as aligned with the new Common Core State Standards which will become one element in the new State Accountability Plan for our public schools.  They are called the SBAC Assessments - Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.  Our 11th graders will participate in three elements of the pilot assessment - a performance task, an English portion and a Mathematics section.  These assessments have been scheduled over six dates starting on April 14th through April 22nd.   Each assessment is approximately two hours. The bell schedules will remain the same for those days with students being pulled from their class periods to engage in this process.  The student clusters are outlined in the following table to assist you with planning to participate in these pilot assessments.
