Message from the Superintendent

Dear Rolling Hills Middle School Families,

Educating students to their highest potential is job one for all of us in Campbell Union School District. As we work toward successfully completing this school year, we also are looking ahead at how to provide the best support to students in the next school year.

When school begins on August 22nd, Rolling Hills will have a new administrative team. Mr. Gilbert Rodriguez will be joining RHMS as Assistant Principal and will be working with Mr. Cribari, who will continue as the RHMS Principal. Your Assistant Principal Kristin Prindle has accepted the position of Principal at Castlemont School, and Dean of Students Steven Fisher has accepted a position at another school district.

Mr. Rodriguez has more than 10 years of experience as an administrator and educator, including middle school, high school and university levels. He and Mr. Cribari will make a strong and effective team as they are committed to continuing the great programs and experiences for Rolling Hills students, staff and families.

We believe these changes will support the needs of students at Rolling Hills Middle School and prepare our future graduates for the challenges of their yet-to-be-defined futures.

Sincerely,

Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D., Superintendent

A Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

Preparing our students for success in the yet-to-be-defined workplace of the future is rewarding and challenging. Recently, the challenges have increased with changes to economic conditions.

A few major factors have placed new strains on school and district budgets for our district and many others in the region.

  1. Declining enrollment due to families moving to more-affordable places to live;
  2. Flattening State revenue
  3. Unexpected, State-imposed increases to our pension program costs; and
  4. Increased cost and demand for special education services for students.

The bottom line: Campbell Union School District will need to make $2 million in adjustments to our operating budget for the coming school year. 


We are up to the challenge. We have taken some steps already to mitigate some the impacts of that large funding cut:

  • Our energy and water conservation systems are complete,
  • We have secured several grants to support students’ education and wellness,  
  • We trimmed $1.8 million from the current year’s budget, and
  • We are exploring ways to further reduce costs for services outside of the classroom.

Our fiscal responsibility has earned us the public’s confidence and support. Our community shares our commitment to educate all students to their highest potential, approving school bonds to maintain and modernize our buildings and grounds and a parcel tax to provide competitive teacher salaries and up-to-date classroom technology.

Despite serious fiscal challenges coming our way, we are committed to maintaining both our financial solvency and the integrity of our instructional programs as we prepare our students for the opportunities of their yet-to-be-defined futures.

Jennifer Bell Named Educator of the Year by League of Middle Schools

jennifer bellCampbell Union School District announces that Jennifer Bell, sixth-grade teacher at Rolling Hill Middle School, was named Educator of the Year for California League of Middle Schools (CLMS) Region 5.

The award is given to California middle school teachers who exemplify educational excellence and who have made significant efforts to implement elements of educational reform. Region 5 represents Santa Clara County.

“Jennifer is an exemplary teacher,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “She is a facilitator of learning, allowing her students to develop the key competencies they will need for success in the yet-to-be-defined workplace they will enter one day.”

“Entering her classroom, students are engulfed in their own learning, working on a learning target that has meaning to them,” said Rolling Hills Principal Ted Cribari.  “She is a powerful teacher from whom others seek input in a collaborative manner.”

Bell was recognized for her dedicated and innovative work with students at the school and for her leadership when working at the district level. She has worked to implement proven instructional techniques, including learning targets and writing strategies that benefit all learners.

We invited parents, students, employees and the community to share thoughts about what we're doing well and where we can improve.

We engage parents, students, employees and the community in developing our Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs) so that our decisions and plans are more responsive to our community’s educational priorities. LCAPs describe the school's overall vision for students, annual goals, and specific actions we will take to achieve the vision and goals.

In addition to other important student performance data, we invite input from our stakeholders in a variety of ways, both formal and informal. With a focus on district goals, we use the information to make decisions about programs and to seek added support through community grants and partnerships. As a result of last year’s feedback, some schools added field trips, others added counselors, and still others directed funds to support homework help or art instruction.

A few months ago, we invited parents, students, employees and the community to engage in an online forum, using Thoughtexchange.com to share their own thoughts and rate the thoughts of others about what we're doing well and where we can improve. We were able to receive direct input from thousands of stakeholders.

School administrators are sharing the school-level results with their committees and staff, as part of their planning process for next year. District-level Top Thoughts results are compiled into two interactive reports that appear on our LCAP webpage.
