Clave al Éxito has also recently been updated to provide content in both Spanish and English as well as expanding the resources to facilitate communication between teachers and Spanish-speaking parents. The tool now links directly to Smarter Balanced Practice Tests with plans to connect to the Smarter Balanced Spanish web page and resources.
