Is your family taking a vacation during the school year?

If you will be going on vacation, try to plan them on school holidays. If you not able to, and will be gone 5 days or longer, please come into the office and inquire about an Independent Study Agreement.

Please notify the office every day that your child is absent from school.  To report an absence, call 408-341-7132 for the 24 hr. attendance line.

If you have seen a medical professional, please bring us a doctor's note to have your child's absence medically verified.

Your student is allowed 10 days of parent verified absence due to an illness for the school year. After the 10 days, you will need to bring in a doctor's note to clear the absences. 

Vacations are not excused absences. Vacation and absences other than illness are considered unexcused and will generate truancy letters.

CUSD School Named 2019 National Blue Ribbon School

Miss Jackie, Mrs. Khalid and Dr. Viramontez will be traveling this week to Washington, DC to pick up the National Blue Ribbon Award.

Congratulations to Campbell Union School District’s Forest Hill Elementary School for being recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2019. The award from the U.S. Department of Education is based on a school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.
 
"I’m proud of the work being done at all of our schools, and it is a wonderful honor to have Forest Hill recognized as a National Blue Ribbon school,” said Shelly Viramontez, Superintendent of the preschool-through-grade-eight school district.
 
“We recognize and honor your important work in preparing students for successful careers and meaningful lives” said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos in a video message to the honorees. Representatives from Forest Hill will join the District Superintendent and the Secretary of Education at a November awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.
 
Photographs and a brief description are available on the National Blue Ribbon Schools website.

We've extended the deadline to participate in your school's Thoughtexchange and add your voice to our planning process.

We believe that working closely with our community is essential to meeting the needs of our students. As part of our annual planning, we want to understand what is important to you for your school and the District. One way we do that is through Thoughtexchange—an online tool that allows us to learn the thoughts and priorities of the people affected by our decisions.

Share your Thoughts by November 22! 
Please join in the Parent/Community conversation about your child's school and district.
Por favor únase a la conversación de los padres/la comunidad sobre la escuela y el distrito de su hijo.

It is an easy 3-step process:
  1.  Share – answer open-ended questions about education in our schools
  2.  Star – review and ideas from other stakeholders
  3.  Discover – learn what is important to the community as a whole

We are committed to making sure our students are educated to their highest potential, and we rely on your feedback and input to help guide that direction. That is why we are asking for your participation in an online community conversation about what we're doing well and areas in which we can improve.

Sincerely,
Dr. Shelly Viramontez, Superintendent

Map of New Trustee Areas Are Being Developed

District Board Invites Public Input

The Campbell Union School District’s Governing Board is currently elected under an “at-large” election system, where trustees are elected by voters of the entire District. On September 19, 2019, the Board adopted Resolution #2019-20-10, declaring its intent to transition from at-large to by-trustee area Board elections, where each Board member must reside within the designated trustee area boundary, and is elected only by the voters in that trustee area.

The demographer presented the proposed maps at the Board's October 24th meeting and public hearing. (See the maps)

The Board held several public hearings on the topics, and plans to vote on a final map at a Special Board Meeting, at 7 p.m., Thurs., November 21, 2019, at 155 N. Third Street, Campbell.* 

Pursuant to Elections Code section 10010, subdivision (a)(2), the proposed trustee area maps are posted on Campbell Union School District’s CVRA website and also available to view at the District Office.

*Please note: Trustee area maps do NOT alter school attendance area boundaries.
