S.T.A.R. Testing will take place during the first 2 weeks right after spring break in the Cupertino Union School District (CUSD).  Star Testing is administered for kids 2nd grade through 8 grade in CUSD and for high school kids in Fremont Union High School District (FUHSD).According to one of the parents, you can opt out your child from Star Testing if that's what you want.  I personally think you should let your child get accustomed to standardized testing while they are young, but if, for some reason you are against it, follow this parent's steps outlined below:Write a handwritten letter to the principal at your School, making sure to include the following information:1. State that you like to opt out your child for all or part of the star testing this school year.2. Mention your chil...

Q: My 3 year old daughter can read just about any word I throw at her.  Is there any testing program that she can pass so Cupertino will allow her to get into Cupertino Kindergarten early?A (Karen from Student Assignment): Unfortunately no.  There is no testing program to get gifted toddlers into kindergarten early.  There's a strict age requirement.  We at the Cupertino Student Assignment Department don't set that age requirement.  The State sets that requirement.  State law states your child must reach age 5 by December 2nd of that school year to get into public kindergarten. Q: Can I send my daughter to Private kindergarten and then get back into public 1st grade? A: No.  You'd have to send your child to Private school for both kindergarten and 1st, then you can send her back into th...

Here are stats for Cuperitno CA, year to date ending January 2011.  The active properties are taken at the end of the month, and show that actual homes that are currently for sale as of that date.  Pending sale are homes that are currently under contract to be sold, and include distressed properties.  The number of sales are that actual homes that have closed escrow in the preceding 30 days. Looking at these stats, it shows that the solds are at a yearly low.  The pending sales are starting their rebound, which should result in a higher number of sales at the end of this month.  This seems to be following the seasonality in the market, and we should see increases in all of the numbers as we coast into summer.  But time will tell... This next chart shows the condo/town home market.  This...
