Four students from the Planada School District achieved a perfect score on S.T.A.R. test results, according to the district’s board of trustees.
The S.T.A.R. test stands for Standardized Testing and Reporting required by the state of California.
The four students and their subject areas include Manuel Ramirez, third grade, mathematics; Jose Guardado, eighth grade, science; Yasmine Maldonado, sixth grade, mathematics; and Andrea Martinez, sixth grade, mathematics.
School Board President Mark Mendez and Superintendent Steve Gomes presented each of the students with a certificate of recognition.
Alfonso Nava, principal of Cesar E Chavez Middle School in Planada, said that it was “very unusual to receive a perfect score in the S.T.A.R, test, and then this happens, we make a point to recognize and acknowledge their achievement. It’s about celebrating the students and their parents, who play an integral role in their child’s education.”
