LCAPs describe the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals, and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals. 

Click to read the LCAP for Campbell Union School District and those of our 12 schools.

We determine Local Control & Accountability Plan priorities through a process of reviewing academic and school climate data and garnering input from our community. We elicit broad public input in multiple ways, including online forums and meetings with parents, pupils, school personnel, neighbors, and business and community leaders.

LCAP Goals for 2018-2021

  • Provide high quality teaching and learning that promotes opportunities for applying knowledge.
  • Ensure that students are college and future ready by equipping them with the competencies identified in Profile of a Graduate. Close all identified Achievement Gaps.
  • Provide appropriate tiered supports that promote and sustain positive social/emotional development for all students.
  • Fully engage parents/guardians, students and the community in support of student educational outcomes.

Ideas to Encourage Summer Reading

Numerous studies show that being able to read proficiently opens the door to a world of success.

“Our world economy demands a more educated workforce, and grade-level reading proficiency is the key.” 
Landmark Research by the Annie E. Casey Foundation

To help our families keep their children reading and learning while schools are closed for summer, we offer the following list of ideas.

Head to the Library: Thanks to a partnership with Campbell Library, students enrolled in our schools—no matter where they live—have access to the Library’s resources online and in-house. Also, many local libraries hold events and activities for school-ages children.

Keep Reading Materials Handy: Reading can be fun. Keep comic books, magazines, newspapers, paperbacks and e-books on hand as an easy option for your child to choose.

Talk About Reading: Ask your children about what they read. Listen for what they liked or discovered, and connect it to their own experiences.

Create Low-Tech Reading Time: Set aside “no electronics” time each day for reading. Take turns reading aloud to each other or read independently, and keep the television, stereo, smart phones and computers turned off.

Take Opportunities to Practice: Encourage your child to read everyday things, such as menus, movie listings, game instructions, recipes, signs, maps and more.

“The child who has access to reading is a child better prepared to rise and meet their future. Without the ability to read, a child faces significant challenges in navigating the mid-21st century.”

State Test Results Will Be Digital This year

Individual reports of students' CAASPP results will be available electronically.

This spring, our students in grades three through eight participated in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). In our district, the test results are just one way that we determine how well our students are doing. We use the results to find areas where students are doing well and those in which they need added support.

Depending on grade level, a student would have taken the following test(s):

  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy (ELA)
    and mathematics in grades three through eight
  • California Alternative Assessment (CAA)
  • California Science Test (CAST) in grades five and eight
  • California Spanish Assessment (CSA) in grades three through eight

This year, the California Department of Education has determined that the results from those tests will be delivered electronically. The reports will be uploaded over the next few weeks, as the individual student reports are finalized. Parents/guardians may access them through their Campbell Union School District PowerSchool Parent account. 

A sample of the student test report is available online on a new parent web page called Starting Smarter.  This site also includes:

  • resources to help understand results on the student score reports.
  • access to sample test questions and practice tests.
  • no-cost resources to support learning.
  • a guide for parent-teacher conferences.

NOTE: If you have not created your PowerSchool Parent account, please obtain the log in information from the office staff at your child’s school.
