Principal's Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Colina Middle School--home of the Cougars! Our entire staff is committed to academic excellence, as well as the social enrichment and emotional support of all of our students... every student can be a successful learner. I truly believe that teachers, students, and parents must work together and become the pathway for those educational experiences.
~ Shane Frank, Principal

CAASPP Testing

This year all students in the state of California will again be participating in CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) testing.   This replaces the STAR test that students previously took in language arts and math.  8th grade students will continue to take the STAR test in science. We have provided three documents for your reference.  The first is the Colina testing schedule.  The second is a letter from Mr. Frank explaining the testing schedule.  The third is a CVUSD district letter explaining the CAASPP assessment in more detail.

Recipients have earned all A’s and E’s/S’s in citizenship and work habits.

Silver Card: Recipients have earned all A’s and B’s, and E’s/S’s in citizenship and work habits.

Bronze Card: Recipients have earned all A’s, B’s, C’s and E’s/S’s in citizenship and work habits, or recipients have shown a .5 GPA improvement from trimester grading period to trimester grading period, to the 2.0 level or above.
