 What Riverside Parents and Students Should Know

Here at RUSD, our students are working harder, thinking more critically and applying their learning to the real world. The Smarter Balanced Assessments help measure how students are making progress on the path to being ready for college and career. For our Riverside families, this video which was created by Smarter Balanced explains a lot about the exciting things that continue to happen in the world of education!

*(Washington State created this video and is part of the 
SBAC group of states along with California.)
