California Standards Test (CST)

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    Loyalton elementary is a good school. We are a rural city and are constantly dealing with government cuts (local state and federal). We depend greatly on grant and timber dollars to budget are school district. These have both been cut and are no longer available to rural schools. Our school is scheduled to clsoe in approx two years. We have terrific scores on state wide test which do not help us receive any grant money or much needed assistance with funding.
