  • The Smarter Balanced and HSA Science Parent Information Booklets (PIBs) are currently available in English and 14 translated languages and can be found in the General Information folder on the Resources page. Printed PIBs will be shipped and delivered to each school the week of January 14th. Each student's home language in Infinite Campus has been used to determine whether a student will receive either an English PIB or a translated PIB in the home language indicated by their family. Please make sure the students receive either the English or translated PIB that they need. If your school does not receive their shipment of PIBs by Wednesday, January 23rd, please contact the Help Desk.
