On October 20, 2016, our school will participate in the annual Great California ShakeOut, the largest earthquake drill in U.S. History. This year California is joined by 41 other states and U.S. territories plus several other countries that are also participating in ShakeOut drills on the same day!  Everyone will practice how to “drop, cover and hold on,” and teachers will discuss the importance of earthquake preparedness with our students. This is the chance for us all to practice what to do during earthquakes to reduce injuries.


At 10:20 a.m., your child will drop to the ground, take cover under a table or desk, and hold on, at the same time as millions of other Californians. For more information, see the Great California Shake Out Parent Letter.

District Reorganization Update

Administrators for Campbell Middle School provided a status report to the Board in relation to their work at the school since June.

During the summer, they oversaw:

  1. Facility clean up and minor campus improvements, including tree replacement, outside seating for students, and removal of lockers that were inadequate for campus needs.
  2. Hiring faculty, creating team-building opportunities for the school employees, re-initiating the Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) system, and establishing the new Instructional Leadership Team (ILT).
  3. Reviewing and adjusting systems, such as creating a common lunch period, a singly daily bell schedule, and increasing instructional minutes.
  4. Building the Transformation Team—which will include students, staff, neighbors, administrators and other community stakeholders—to meet and develop a plan for the school’s transition from middle school to a grade TK-8 school.

Strategic Plan Update

Superintendent Eric Andrew reported that work on the five objectives aimed at achieving the district’s Strategic Goals is going well. 

He noted that work on the goals has progressed well with many of the objectives met. He added that some of the deadlines needed to be extended to October and November, due to changes in administration staff and union leadership and to allow the Strategic Planning Committee to consider revising the “Schools’ of Choice” goal’s wording.

Slides from the presentation can be seen on request or online at
