All 3rd, 4th and 5th Graders Need to be at School for State Testing! 

Formal State Testing (CAASPP) will begin at Forest Hill on Monday, April 29th.  All 3rd-5th graders will be testing.  It is very important that all students are present during testing times.  If a student is absent, s/he will have to make up the test (missing important classroom instruction).  In addition, make-ups are logistically difficult to administer. If you already know of appointments scheduled during testing times, please reschedule them so that everyone is present for testing. 

If you would like additional information about the CAASPP, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/

We invited parents, students, employees and the community to share thoughts about what we're doing well and where we can improve.

We engage parents, students, employees and the community in developing our Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs) so that our decisions and plans are more responsive to our community’s educational priorities. LCAPs describe the school's overall vision for students, annual goals, and specific actions we will take to achieve the vision and goals.

In addition to other important student performance data, we invite input from our stakeholders in a variety of ways, both formal and informal. With a focus on district goals, we use the information to make decisions about programs and to seek added support through community grants and partnerships. As a result of last year’s feedback, some schools added field trips, others added counselors, and still others directed funds to support homework help or art instruction.

A few months ago, we invited parents, students, employees and the community to engage in an online forum, using Thoughtexchange.com to share their own thoughts and rate the thoughts of others about what we're doing well and where we can improve. We were able to receive direct input from thousands of stakeholders.

School administrators are sharing the school-level results with their committees and staff, as part of their planning process for next year. District-level Top Thoughts results are compiled into two interactive reports that appear on our LCAP webpage.

We have noticed an increase in the speed of the cars driving on McCoy before and after school. The speed limit is 25 miles per hour. Also, many cars are running the stop signs on McCoy Avenue. Please follow all safety rules while driving. The crossing guards are not directing traffic. They are directing the adults and children who are walking in the crosswalk. Thank you for keeping our community safe.

A Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

Preparing our students for success in the yet-to-be-defined workplace of the future is rewarding and challenging. Recently, the challenges have increased with changes to economic conditions.

A few major factors have placed new strains on school and district budgets for our district and many others in the region.

  1. Declining enrollment due to families moving to more-affordable places to live;
  2. Flattening State revenue
  3. Unexpected, State-imposed increases to our pension program costs; and
  4. Increased cost and demand for special education services for students.

The bottom line: Campbell Union School District will need to make $2 million in adjustments to our operating budget for the coming school year. 


We are up to the challenge. We have taken some steps already to mitigate some the impacts of that large funding cut:

  • Our energy and water conservation systems are complete,
  • We have secured several grants to support students’ education and wellness,  
  • We trimmed $1.8 million from the current year’s budget, and
  • We are exploring ways to further reduce costs for services outside of the classroom.

Our fiscal responsibility has earned us the public’s confidence and support. Our community shares our commitment to educate all students to their highest potential, approving school bonds to maintain and modernize our buildings and grounds and a parcel tax to provide competitive teacher salaries and up-to-date classroom technology.

Despite serious fiscal challenges coming our way, we are committed to maintaining both our financial solvency and the integrity of our instructional programs as we prepare our students for the opportunities of their yet-to-be-defined futures.
