Updated Wed, Jan 17th

Input from parents, staff and other community members is very important to us in Campbell Union School District. Because we know you are very busy, we are offering a new, online way to provide your thoughts, ideas, and questions to us. It is called Thoughtexchange, and we hope it will be a convenient way to engage and communicate with us about our District and schools. 

On the morning of January 16, you may have received an invitation email from Thoughtexchange with simple instructions on how to participate in this process, which will be open through January 26.  (If you do not have an email account, use this link to our Thoughtexchange.)

With Thoughtexchange, you will be asked to share your thoughts on several open-ended questions, and to read and rate the thoughts and ideas of others. Our intent is to connect with parents, teachers, community members, students, and our district staff to gather thoughts, ideas, and questions they may have about our District and schools in order to continue meeting the needs of our elementary and middle school students.

Please look for the January 16 Thoughtexchange email or use this link to our Thoughtexchange.

Holidays are a wonderful time to establish traditions with your children. Gifts are fun, but traditions are what you remember year after year. It’s making breakfast together, all watching the same favorite movie while eating popcorn in the living room, falling asleep listening to aunts and uncles laughing- these are the memories we treasure. Create a wonderful memory with your family by recognizing your traditions. Help your children see the things that make your family special.

Traditions are also a way to highlight your family values. Eating dinner together stresses the value you place on family. Another is cooking a holiday meal together as a family. It's not about the what the dish is at the meal, but rather the work you put into making that dish that acknowledges the respect you for spending time together. What traditions demonstrate your family values?

Enjoy your children over the next two weeks, and I look forward to seeing everyone in January.

Sincerely,
Cynthia Dodd
Principal, RHMS

Dashboard is part of California’s new school accountability system

California has launched a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and schools. The California School Dashboard features easy-to- read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English learner progress and suspension rates. 

An important note: The fact that 11 of our District’s 12 schools are Dependent Charter Schools caused an error in the Local Indicators section of the Dashboard reports. Each of our 12 schools has a rating of MET for Local Indicators. To see detailed information about the Local Indicators, select the Campbell Union School District dashboard. 

The Dashboard is part of California’s new school accountability system based on 2013’s Local Control Funding Formula. It is the next step in a series of major shifts in public education that have raised the bar for student learning, transformed testing and placed the focus on equity for all students. 

To learn more about California’s accountability and continuous improvement efforts, visit http://www.cde.ca.gov/dashboard/.
