District Survey: What’s Working? Needs Improvement?

A Message from the Superintendent

a groups of young students smiling. Text reads:

We are committed to being an Organization of Excellence, continually improving each day to be a great place to learn, work, and provide an excellent education. Part of that process is gathering input from the people we interact with every day and using what we learn to further our commitment to excellence.

We are seeking your input. On January 31, 2022, we will send the survey link to families, students (grade 3 and up), and employees. 

Our partners at Huron | Studer Education are administering the survey, providing an opportunity for you to provide feedback anonymously. The online survey will be available in English and Spanish, and you can respond via any Internet-connected computer or mobile device.

We are committed to listening and responding to your experiences in our district. We will use the feedback to celebrate and build upon our successes and to identify areas for improvement in specific areas. 

Please check your email or ParentSquare account on January 31st for our message and link to the survey.

Tell a Friend! TK Opens to Younger Students This Year

Children turning 5 from Sep. 2 – Feb. 2 can enroll in transitional kindergarten.

Transitional Kindergarten, the two-year bridge program between preschool and kindergarten, is expanding. Under California’s Universal TK program, which was part of the legislative changes of AB 130, children who turn 5 years old between Sept. 2, 2022 and Feb. 2, 2023, will be able to enroll in CUSD’s Transitional Kindergarten (TK) for the 2022-23 school year.

Plans for the 2022-23 implementation include following the same full-day schedule as its current TK and Kindergarten programs. The TK staffing ratio will be 12 students to 1 adult. The District hopes to offer a TK-only class at each elementary school. However, as is always the case, final locations and class make up will depend on the number of students who enroll in TK before the 2022-23 school year begins.  The district is prioritizing TK only classes but may need to have TK/K combination classes depending on actual enrollment. 

Early education experts say 90% of brain growth happens before kindergarten, so the expansion is a key strategy for closing achievement gaps.

The TK program will gradually expand over the next few years until it includes all 4-year-olds by the 2025-26 school year. Download the Jan. 13 Board presentation about TK.

Updated Covid Protocols

New Guidelines

As you know, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recently updated the Covid protocols for schools. This has changed our processes related to exposure notices, quarantine, and testing requirements. Recently, you received a letter via email outlining the new procedures. Please read it so you will be aware of the new requirements, protocols, and procedures.

Campbell Union School District and Marshall Lane School have many mitigating measures in place to prevent the spread of Covid at school.

  • Mask wearing is required of all students and adults on campus except when eating and drinking. This includes outdoor areas, at this time. Please ensure that your child has a well-fitting mask that stays above their nose. Recommended types are N95 or KN95 for the best protection for children and adults.

  • Students remain in their classroom cohorts while eating lunch.

  • Weekly surveillance testing is recommended for all students and staff members. This is available every Wednesday at school free of charge. To enroll in Grapefruit’s testing program, click here.

  • Ventilation systems at school are hospital quality and filters are changed on a regular basis. As much as possible, doors and windows to classrooms remain open.

  • Vaccinations are highly recommended for all children and adults.

  • Hand hygiene is encouraged on a regular basis.

  • If children or adults are experiencing any symptoms, they should stay at home.

As a supportive community, we need to continue to work together to protect each other. Thank you for all of your efforts to keep everyone healthy and safe! You are appreciated!
