Capri Needs your Feedback

Please take part in our annual survey

Survey

Our district is dedicated to creating a positive experience for all we serve and to continuously improve your student's learning experience. Our partners at Studer Education are providing an opportunity for you to provide feedback anonymously, at the link below. The survey is short and should only take about 10 minutes to complete.

 It is important that we get feedback from every school's community. The input will be used to celebrate our successes and to create action plans for improvement at the school and district levels.

If you have not already done so, please take a few minutes to complete the Parent/Caregiver Experience Survey.  The link was sent through ParentSquare on January 19th and January 24th. You can also use the QR code that is posted on the gates on campus.

 (Please note that on some mobile phones, the survey appears best if you switch to “desktop site” in your mobile browser.)

 The survey closes at 5:00 pm February 11th

Meet Mrs. Wiseman Capri's Equity ToSA

Mrs. Wisemans family

Hi! My name is Lisa Wiseman.   I am the mother of two beautiful children, Annabelle and Adam, and the wife of my loving husband, Adam.  I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, and playing volleyball.   
 
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies with a minor in Urban Education and emphasis in Mathematics, as well as my teaching credential from Santa Clara University. I also earned a Master of Science in Applied School Leadership and hold a preliminary administrative credential through National University.  
 
I began teaching in Campbell Union School District in the Fall of 2008. I taught 4th grade for 6 years, and then became a Teacher-on-Special-Assignment (ToSA) in the Fall of 2014 for Capri.  I am currently Capri's Equity ToSA and a district English Language Development (ELD) ToSA.   My role at Capri is to ensure that every child receives equitable instruction. I do this by:
  • Fostering collaboration

  • Improving together

  • Removing barriers

  • Encouraging reflection

  • Being student-centered

I want to foster a culture where we all are working interdependently towards a common goal. I love being a ToSA because I get to facilitate both teacher and student learning, meanwhile I get the privilege to learn from them too! Many of my favorite moments in my job are the ones where I get to see the smile and confidence in others after they learn something new. I love our Capri community and I'm incredibly lucky to be a part of it.

Understanding School Funding

Budget cycle begins in January for California’s school districts

This month, Governor Newsome released a proposed budget for California, kicking off months of analyzing, planning and discussion about school funding. In our district, we base our planning for 2023-24 on the proposed budget and have begun analyzing how it impacts our district.

In May, the Governor will release a revised budget, and then California legislators will finalize it from May through July.  

It’s a complex process. For some insight into how it works for California schools, please see our “District Funding Overview”.

Meet Kim Kumamoto our new addition to the Capri Office. Kim is our new Office/Health Assistant.

Kim Kumamoto

After working in special education for several years I have recently made the shift to the front office at Capri. I began volunteering here in 2011 and fell in love with this school and the community it serves. In my personal time, I love to cook, spend time outdoors, play with my two dogs, Herbie and Lily, and spend quality time with my family.
