Your work year can match your student's school year;  
You are trained and certified as an expert driver;
You get a really good benefits package; and
You work with a great team of professionals; .

Campbell Union School District will be offering free training designed to prepare attendees to complete all needed steps to becoming a state certified school bus driver.  Successful candidates will also be eligible for openings within the district’s Transportation Department.  Classes will be held on held in late April on T/Th evenings and Saturdays.  For further information, please contact Chrissie Stevenson (cstevenson [at]

Parents and guardians are proving the adage about showing up being a big part of success for their children.

Engaging families as partners and refining how staff uses extensive attendance data has earned Campbell Union School District one of the highest attendance rates in California, improved student achievement, and a 2018 Hoffmann Exemplary School Program Award.

“We are making a difference together,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “Our approach allows us to systematically address attendance obstacles, maintain high levels of parent engagement, celebrate improvements, and provide an array of supports and resources to reduce the loss of instructional time.”

This year, for example, the district and schools focused on lowering the rate of Chronic Absences through the relationships that the Community Liaisons have with families. 

“The personal connection is very important,” said Director of Student Services Rosanna Palomo. “Each absence, each tardy, and each early pick up is an opportunity for our school office staff or teacher to communicate with the parent about the importance of good attendance for their child’s success in school… and they do!” 

The results for early 2017-18 have been commendable, with a one-year attendance improvement rate of 67% among those chronically absent students. Other improvements include noticeable academic growth among the State’s student subgroups at CUSD schools with better attendance. Overall attendance gains can also generate savings to the district’s budget. 

The Glenn W. Hoffmann Awards, sponsored by the Santa Clara County School Boards Association (SCCSBA), celebrate school and school district programs that significantly impact student success in our region. The winners will be honored at a SCCSBA ceremony on April 25, 2018.

A Message from Superintendent Viramontez

Our hearts go out to our fellow educators and families in Parkland, Florida, and we continue to send positive thoughts and prayers to this community so rocked by the recent, violent attack.  When a tragedy of this nature occurs, we also reassess our own preparedness to ensure our commitment to keeping our students and staff safe.

In Campbell Union School District, we have been diligent in our commitment to preparing our staff to ensure our students have a safe and supportive learning environment.  In light of this fact, I want to share information on these two topics:

  • Walk Out vs. Talk It Out
  • School Safety Procedures

* Download the full letter (English and Spanish) here or continue reading below.

Walk Out / Talk It Out

We are aware that many feel a desire to take an action to advocate for the safety of our students.  Many have taken the stance of “enough is enough.”  While we support families making their concerns and voices heard, we do not feel students missing valuable instructional time sends the desired message to those who can make legislative decisions. 

We are encouraging families and staff to consider alternatives to missing school time, including:

  • Contacting elected officials (,
  • Signing petitions, and
  • Participating in events outside of school hours, such as the local March for Our Lives event on Saturday, March 24, at 11 a.m., at San Jose City Hall.

Tragedies such as this are challenging for us all, especially in knowing how to talk to our children about these types of events without causing them to worry or become anxious and upset. Talking to your children, listening to them, and reassuring them that they are safe is important. The National Association of School Psychologists offers some pointers for talking to children about violence.  A copy is available here ( and via your school's weekly online flyers link.

School Safety Procedures

We are very committed to ensuring our students and staff are safe.  As a result, we consistently practice a variety of emergency situations, from earthquake to an intruder on campus drills. Our safety procedures, including sign-in and gate procedures, are developed with a safety consultant and in cooperation with local police and fire officials. Our training incorporates the same Incident Command System (ICS) protocols used by these first responders. ICS is a consistent structure and process to provide command, control, and coordination of emergency response. Information about our emergency procedures is also available on our district website at 

Our school staff formally trains for these various emergencies monthly and reviews each school site’s safety plan each year. We conduct our trainings with our safety consultants in collaboration with police and fire officials.

In addition to training for these emergency events, we also provide supports for students’ social-emotional needs.  We have multiple layers of school and community-based support systems in place to help students and families in times of crisis. We have school staff, such as psychologists, counselors and therapists as well as our community-based agencies, such as Uplift, First 5, and many other services coordinated through our School Linked Services (SLS) partnership.

We are consistently improving upon our supports and services, and as a result, we are adding two more features to our safety plans: 

  • A confidential Quick Tip service will be available for students or parents to report suspicious, illegal, or unsafe situations.
  • We are also beta-testing a new app, called ICS4schools, which will provide a fast, efficient and accurate system for reuniting students with their parents/guardians following an emergency situation.

Please know that we are committed to providing schools in which our students are safe, learning and thriving.  We will continue to offer trainings, supports and services to meet those responsibilities.
