Aeries Parent Portal
State Test Results and Parent Contact Information
Starting with the 2019-2020 school year, Santa Clara Unified parent/guardians are being asked to use the Aeries Parent Portal to view your students’ state test results and update emergency contact information.
Your child’s state test results will be available year-round. If your child is an English learner, they will have ELPAC test results. If your child is in grades 4-8 or grade 12 in the 2019-20 school year, they will have state test results for English Language Arts and Mathematics (CAASPP).
The emergency contact information page will be available to update through the Aeries Parent portal, through August 30, 2019.

- Under the menu that opens, click “Open link in new tab” or “Open link in a new window”
Please click on all of the informational links available on your student’s test score reports to help you better understand your child’s performance/progress on these tests. If you have any questions about your child’s performance on the state tests, be sure to make an appointment with your child’s teacher to discuss the results. The same reports are available to teachers in their version of the Aeries Student Information system. We invite you to join us at one of the informational meetings we will hold this fall (see below). Any parent can attend any meeting, regardless of where your student attends school.
