More than 1,600 people participated, providing thoughts, ideas, and questions for the district leadership.

Input from parents, staff and other community members is very important to us in Campbell Union School District. Working closely with our community is essential to ensuring that the needs of all students are met. 

In January, we added ThoughtExchange—a new, online way for our community to engage and communicate with us about our district and schools. See the results here.

The response rate for this first-time, online forum was high, with more than 1,600 people generating and rating more than 2,700 thoughts, ideas, and questions for us. Results from this and future ThoughtExchanges will inform our goals and decisions for the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), our Profile of a Graduate, and other initiatives aimed at providing an education beyond the expected.

Thank you for engaging in this new way to converse with us.

District Governing Board urges lawmakers to support greater school safety through increased funding and “common sense gun reforms.”

At their March 29 meeting, the elementary school district trustees passed Resolution 2017-18-25 calling on state and federal legislators to do more to bolster funding for services that support students’ mental, physical and emotional health and protect students from gun violence. 

“Gun violence on school campuses, while relatively rare, represents a particularly egregious and unacceptable threat to the lives of students, teachers, and staff across the country,” the resolution states. 

Prompted by the February 2018 mass shooting at a Florida high school, the resolution cites data about bullying, harassment, and student access to guns, and it asserts students’ and staff’s rights to safety at school. 

The resolution also requests for adequate funding to support students social and emotional needs in addition to their academic achievement.

“Our District partners with community health services to help students and families who need support with social-emotional and other non-instructional issues,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “The costs of educating and supporting students have been rising faster than state and federal funding, making it difficult to provide services that allow our teachers to teach while students get support for their social-emotional well-being.” 

A copy of the full resolution is available on the district’s website.

Congratulations to our Maverick World Scholars!  They did a terrific job at the World Scholar’s Cup competition, bringing home a host of awards, including 1st Place Junior Team and 1st Place Junior Scholar, among many others, and qualifying to attend the Global Competition this summer.  A special shout out to 7th grader Carol Gonzalez, who, because of her teammate’s illness, had to compete as a member of a high school team against high school teams; her team won all three of their debates!

We’d also like to thank Nicole Nguyen, a former and future MMS parent, who coached the MMS teams to their success!  Thank you, Nicole! Go Mavericks!

Parents and guardians are proving the adage about showing up being a big part of success for their children.

Engaging families as partners and refining how staff uses extensive attendance data has earned Campbell Union School District one of the highest attendance rates in California, improved student achievement, and a 2018 Hoffmann Exemplary School Program Award.

“We are making a difference together,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “Our approach allows us to systematically address attendance obstacles, maintain high levels of parent engagement, celebrate improvements, and provide an array of supports and resources to reduce the loss of instructional time.”

This year, for example, the district and schools focused on lowering the rate of Chronic Absences through the relationships that the Community Liaisons have with families. 

“The personal connection is very important,” said Director of Student Services Rosanna Palomo. “Each absence, each tardy, and each early pick up is an opportunity for our school office staff or teacher to communicate with the parent about the importance of good attendance for their child’s success in school… and they do!” 

The results for early 2017-18 have been commendable, with a one-year attendance improvement rate of 67% among those chronically absent students. Other improvements include noticeable academic growth among the State’s student subgroups at CUSD schools with better attendance. Overall attendance gains can also generate savings to the district’s budget. 

The Glenn W. Hoffmann Awards, sponsored by the Santa Clara County School Boards Association (SCCSBA), celebrate school and school district programs that significantly impact student success in our region. The winners will be honored at a SCCSBA ceremony on April 25, 2018.
