Upcoming Events

Results of Community Conversation Announced

More than 1,600 people participated, providing thoughts, ideas, and questions for the district leadership.

Input from parents, staff and other community members is very important to us in Campbell Union School District. Working closely with our community is essential to ensuring that the needs of all students are met. 

In January, we added ThoughtExchange—a new, online way for our community to engage and communicate with us about our district and schools. See the results here.

The response rate for this first-time, online forum was high, with more than 1,600 people generating and rating more than 2,700 thoughts, ideas, and questions for us. Results from this and future ThoughtExchanges will inform our goals and decisions for the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), our Profile of a Graduate, and other initiatives aimed at providing an education beyond the expected.

Thank you for engaging in this new way to converse with us.

Board Passes School Safety Resolution

District Governing Board urges lawmakers to support greater school safety through increased funding and “common sense gun reforms.”

At their March 29 meeting, the elementary school district trustees passed Resolution 2017-18-25 calling on state and federal legislators to do more to bolster funding for services that support students’ mental, physical and emotional health and protect students from gun violence. 

“Gun violence on school campuses, while relatively rare, represents a particularly egregious and unacceptable threat to the lives of students, teachers, and staff across the country,” the resolution states. 

Prompted by the February 2018 mass shooting at a Florida high school, the resolution cites data about bullying, harassment, and student access to guns, and it asserts students’ and staff’s rights to safety at school. 

The resolution also requests for adequate funding to support students social and emotional needs in addition to their academic achievement.

“Our District partners with community health services to help students and families who need support with social-emotional and other non-instructional issues,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “The costs of educating and supporting students have been rising faster than state and federal funding, making it difficult to provide services that allow our teachers to teach while students get support for their social-emotional well-being.” 

A copy of the full resolution is available on the district’s website.
