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.

January 16 - 26, 2018

We invite you to engage in a conversation about our school.

Rather than using a traditional survey, we are using Thoughtexchange and a process that provides open-ended questions, in English and Spanish, to help us gather your thoughts and ideas.  An email was sent to families on January 16th or you may use this link.

Please join us for our next English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) meeting on Thursday,  January 25th at 8:45 in our Blackford Community Room. We hope to see you there.

Easy Online Registration. Extended Hours for Those Needing Assistance.

Campbell Union School District’s elementary and middle school registration starts Tue., Jan. 23, 2018, and the process will be almost paperless.

“We’re excited about the advantages of the online process,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “Parents will gain the convenience of doing most of the process online, ability to check the status of their registration on demand, and assurance that the school has immediate access to the contact information entered into the system.” Parents still will need to bring some official documents, like birth certificates, to the enrollment desk for verification, she added.

  • To enroll children in any of the District’s award-winning elementary or middle schools, or in its new TK-8 Campbell School of Innovation, go to www.campbellusd.org/enrollment.
  • School tour dates are posted online: Tour schedules
  • For the 2018-19 school year, current 4th grade students will remain at their current elementary school for 5th grade.  Parents of current 5th graders at elementary schools will receive information about middle school placement before January 23.

Special services are available for those needing assistance with the online process:

  • The Enrollment staff and public-access computers will be available for special Open Enrollment hours from Jan. 23 through Mar. 16, 2018*, to assist people with their registration.
      • 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM, Mondays and Wednesdays
      • 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 
  • Campbell Union School District’s Enrollment Office is located at 155 N. Third Street, near downtown Campbell. 24-hour phone information: 408-341-7276 (English) or 408-341-7277 (Spanish)

*NOTE: The office is closed February 19-23.

Campbell Union School District is a preschool through eighth grade public school district with a variety of educational options, including traditional school settings, a Dual Language Immersion program, a Parent Participation school, home schooling, and the new TK-8 Campbell School of Innovation. All Campbell Union School District schools offer visual and performing arts instruction, before and after-school programs, and parent education/involvement opportunities.

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/.

Our winter break is coming up quickly. Please note our scheduled break begins on Friday, December 22nd. There is no school Friday, December 22nd through Sunday, January 7th. After the break, school will resume on Monday, January 8th. 

Updated Tue, Jan 9th

As the Winter Break approaches, we know families are getting busier planning memorable events with their children. Please remember that with our scheduled breaks throughout the year students are in school 180 days which means they are out of school 185 days. Although it can be tempting to extend a vacation or take one at a time other than our regulary scheduled breaks, please help us in ensuring your child(ren) has the best opportunity to learn at school by bringing them daily and scheduling fun activities and vacations during our already scheduled breaks.  Our students will begin Winter Break on Friday, December 22th. We will see them back in class on January 8th, at 8:35 am.
