Profile of a Graduate for Parents

Superintendent Viramontez presented the why and how of the district's initiative at Parent University 2018.

In her keynote address, the Superintendent described the district's commitment to preparing students for the future and the yet-to-be-defined workplace. For success, students will need to develop five key competencies: self-directed, collaborative, innovative, empathetic and critical thinking.

To illustrate the point, she presented three videos, which are also on our campbellusd YouTube channel.

  1. The Future of Work (3 min.)
  2. Comments from iSchool CEO Travis Allen about changing education (17 min.)
  3. The CUSD Profile of a Graduate (4 min.)

Keeping the WHOLE Child Safe and Well

A Message from the Superintendent

We’ve heard a lot lately about being prepared for emergencies like earthquakes, floods, and wild fires. With Halloween coming, families also are mindful of choosing safe costumes for their children. These are important safety measures that we support whole heartedly.

When it comes to supporting wellness for the WHOLE child, Campbell Union School District goes beyond the expected. Please watch this short video from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez to find out more.
