PLANNING FOR STUDENT SUCCESS: Strategic Plan Objectives on Target; School Transformation Planning Continues

District Reorganization Update

Superintendent Eric Andrew provided an overview of the actions taken and those that are planned regarding transforming Campbell Middle School (CMS) into a PreK-8 school.

Key Points:

  1. Transformation model and guiding principles: Superintendent Andrew explained that the Transformation Team will be considering the three approaches for transition that the Board discussed at the December Study Session, and that the group would be drafting some Guiding Principles for Board approval.
  2. Placement of incoming CMS 5th and 6th graders: Dr. Andrew also noted that plans are underway for having incoming 5th graders be able to remain at the elementary school, and he asked for the Board’s direction regarding placement of the 6th graders in the CMS attendance area.
    The Board agreed that CMS should not take new 5th graders, but that incoming 6th graders should be allowed to attend CMS through grade 8.
  3. Facility needs: Deputy Superintendent Jim Crawford described the anticipated modifications needed at some school campuses to accommodate the increase in 5th and 6th graders during and beyond the transformation. Estimated increases in the number of classrooms needed at Monroe, Rolling Hills, Blackford, Castlemont, Capri and Rosemary schools are based on available enrollment projections.
  4. Transformation Team: Many of the members of the newly formed Transformation Team were present and were introduced. Members represent elementary and middle school teachers, parents, support staff and neighbors. The Team had its first meeting on January 12th.
    Transformation Facilitator Derek Mitchell explained that the first steps for the Team are to determine the best ways to communicate and work together, define what success would look like, and identify key decisions needed before presenting a proposal to the Board in June 2017. The Transformation Team’s next meeting is currently scheduled for February 2.

  

Strategic Plan Progress

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

Since the last Board update:

  • Completed Objectives:
    - Create a Special Education Professional Development Training Series and provide at least one training in order to develop and retain special education teachers
  • Revised Deadlines:
    - Create and present to the Board a plan for creating a “Parent University.”
    - Proposed plan for implementation of the K-8 school at Campbell Middle School
    - Strategies to improve employees’ work experience
    - List of wellness resources available to Campbell USD employees.

Meeting minutes and slides from presentations can be seen on request or online at www.campbellusd.org/board.

Governing Board policies guide the District's regulations on a wide range of topics. Policies are available to the public in multiple ways.

Following are highlights of the Campbell Union School District Governing Board Policy Revisions from the first half of the 2016-17 School Year. Copies of policies and regulations are available in print from school offices, the District Administration Office, and are online at campbellusd.org/policy. Board meeting agendas and minutes also list policies being considered for revision.

  • School-Connected Organizations (BP/AR 1230 revised)

The policy and regulation were updated to clarify the relationship between the district and a school-connected organization, such as a booster club, parent-teacher organization, or other nonstudent organization. The policy adds material about establishing such organizations as separate legal entities subject to their own bylaws and rules; delegates the responsibility to approve organizations' fundraisers to the superintendent or designee; and reflects legal requirement that donations and participation in fundraising activities be voluntary. 

  • Uniform Complaint Procedures (BP/AR 1312.3 revised)

Policy and regulation were updated to reflect new laws relating to complaints of noncompliance with accommodations for lactating students (AB 302, 2015), educational rights of foster youth and homeless students (AB 379, 2015), assignment of students to courses without educational content for more than one week per semester or to courses they have previously completed (AB 1012, 2015), and physical education instructional minutes in elementary schools (AB 1391, 2015). 

  • District Records (BP 3580 revised)

Policy was updated to reflect legal requirement to disclose any breach of security of district records that contain personal information, as defined, by providing a written or electronic notification that meets the content and formatting requirements specified in law.

  • Interdistrict Attendance / Children of Military Families (BP 5117 and AR 6173.2 revised)

A new paragraphs were added to reflect amendments to Education Code 48301:

  1. At the end of BP 5117: “A child of an active military duty parent/guardian shall not be prohibited from transferring out of the district to a school district of choice, if the other school district approves the application for transfer. (Education Code 48301)”
  2. At the end of AR 6173.2: “A child of an active military duty parent/guardian shall not be prohibited from transferring out of the district to any district that has declared itself to be a "school district of choice" pursuant to Education Code 48300-48316, if the other school district approves the application for transfer. (Education Code 48301)”
  • Sexual Health and HIV/AIDS Prevention Instruction (BP/AR 6142.1 revised)

The policy and regulation were updated to reflect new law requiring districts to provide comprehensive sexual health education in grades 7-12 and to integrate that instruction with HIV prevention education. Policy also was updated to clarify requirements related to parental consent. Regulation adds new section on "Definitions," expands program criteria, and merges the components of sexual health education and HIV prevention education.

NOTE: For more details about these or other policies and regulations, please contact the school principal, consult the Parent Handbook of Notices, or email the District Public Information Officer at <http://www.privatedaddy.com/?q=AW1lJxRqUR8bcgICCXFtMzJKKQYQXzZ2QjA-3D_713> or phone 408-341-7254.
