School Accountability Dashboard is Live 

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.

Campbell School of Innovation

Please plan to join us at our next PTA meeting on Thursday, January 11th at 8:45 am. Guest Administrators will be here to do a short presentation on our new TK-8 Campbell School of Innovation opening in the fall of 2018.  They will share information about enrollment, the instructional program, construction, and also answer any questions that you may have. 

Winter Break

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. 

Scheduled Breaks

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.
