At a March 17 Study Session, the Campbell Union School District Governing Board began discussions about proposed changes at three of its schools: Rosemary Elementary School, Campbell Middle School, and Village School, the district’s a parent participation school.
Main components of the proposal include:
- Rosemary Elementary School: add a fifth grade class to the preschool-through-grade-four school in August 2016 with a possibility of expanding to a Preschool through 8th grade site in the future.
- Campbell Middle School: Expand the grade 5-8 middle school to Preschool through 8th grade, possibly in the 2017/18 school year. (This proposal could include merging Village School and Campbell Middle School, but is not dependent upon it.)
- Village School: If the school merges with Campbell Middle, the current Village School campus would convert to a preschool site. If the two schools do not merge, Village School will remain as is and planning for converting Campbell Middle School to a preschool-through-eighth-grade campus would continue.
One of the proposed changes was approved on March 31st: Rosemary School will have a 5th grade starting in the new school year. Discussions about the rest of the proposed changes will continue throughout the year.
“This proposal is a starting point. We are at the very beginning of the conversation,” said District Superintendent Eric Andrew. “Having ample opportunity for discussion is an integral part of the process.”
Andrew said the proposal stems from the District’s Strategic Planning, input from stakeholders, and the goal of ensuring that every school in the Campbell Union School District is a School of Choice.
“We want each school to be as desirable as the next, so parents are confident that their children are receiving a top quality education in a top quality educational setting no matter which is their neighborhood school, ” he said.
The Superintendent and Board have had multiple meetings with staff, families and other community stakeholders since mid-March, and more are expected.
“We will discuss the District Reorganization proposal at each board meeting until we finalize the plan and identify methods to monitor the implementation of the plan,” Andrew said.
“Change can be uncomfortable, he added, “but it also can bring about wonderful outcomes for our students.”
If you have questions or want to be part of the discussions, please contact the school principal or ask_us [at] campbellusd.org

This year, our students in grades 3–8 will participate in the statewide testing program called the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). The tests in the CAASPP System provide information to teachers, parents/guardians, and students about students’ progress and readiness for college and career.
Our school’s testing dates are April 18-May 27, 2016. A letter from our Superintendent about the tests is online at https://www.campbellusd.org/stateassessment.
The tests for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics are:
· Smarter Balanced tests, (Sherman Oaks students will use the bilingual (Eng./Span.) Format for Mathematics
· California Alternate Assessments (CAAs)*
Science assessments (students in grades 5 grade only) are:
· California Standards Test (CST) for Science, or
· California Modified Assessment (CMA) for Science*
For tips on how to help your child do well on tests, go to www.campbellusd.org/files/testpreptips.pdf or ask your child’s teacher.

Sherman Oaks Elementary School is now implementing a 90/10 Dual Language Immersion Model (Spanish/Eng.), which is proven by research and is field-tested, to be the most effective instructional approach of dual language education. During the 2015-16 school year, we are officialy transitioning from the former 50/50 approach to a 90/10 model with our Kindergarten and first grade classes. We will gradually increase each year as we progress through the grades until we reach 50/50 in fourth through sixth grade. This is exciting news as the whole school benefits from an "upgraded" instructional approach aligned to the Common Core State Standards that meets the demands of the 21st century.

Federal Court Judge Kimberly Mueller held a hearing to amend her recent ruling pertaining to the protocol for releasing personally identifiable student information by the California Department of Education (CDE). She noted that the large number of objections the court has already received did indicate a high level of concern from the public.
The amended protocol calls for a court-appointed special master for discovery who will have to approve which data the plaintiffs can receive from the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CaLPADS) database. More details are on the district website. (www.campbellusd.org)

Walking is a fun and healthy way to spend time with your child.
In Campbell Union School District, we encourage parents and students to walk or bike to school every Wednesday. For those who live too far, try parking farther away from the school and walking the last block or two.
Since children learn by doing, YOU are your child’s most important role model for learning to walk safely. As you walk, please:
- Obey all traffic signs and signals.
- Look LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT for moving cars, and cross when clear.
- Time yourself. Practice this weekend to find out how much time to allow.
- Check the weather and dress appropriately (boots, rain coat, umbrella, etc.).
As you walk, you can talk with your child about what you’re doing and explain why.

Each year our teachers administer several assessments to determine student growth and inform their classroom teaching practice. These assessments—tests, quizzes, class projects, and the like—provide multiple ways to measure student progress towards learning the important concepts they need for success in school and in the community at-large.
Our assessment cycle includes dates we report results throughout the year. Also, our teachers are available to discuss student progress with the parents.

Starting January 2016, new incoming students or those students transitioning from elementary to middle school will no longer be able to provide a personal belief statement or religious exemption for immunizations.
Under the 2015 Senate Bill 277, there is provision for “grandfathering” students who currently have a statement of belief or religious exemption until they reach their next vaccination checkpoint – kindergarten or 7th grade. A licensed physician can exempt students from immunizations.
For more information about immunization requirements, contact the California Department of Public Health (916) 558-1784 or ask your health care provider.

We know as parents it can be tempting to extend vacation days and plan for vacations during the regularly scheduled school days. We ask that you refrain from doing so as this can greatly impact your child’s education. We cannot stress enough the importance of attending school daily so your child may receive the necessary instruction. We understand that unforeseen issues do arise, such as illnesses, so please do not forget to contact the office if your child will be absent at: 408-795-1140

Our parking lot is small and we have limited spaces, which are mostly reserved, for our staff. Please allow yourself plenty of time to find parking and walk. You may park in the Sherman Oaks parking lot—legal space permitting, along the street, or in the neighboring off-street parking where allowed. Please be thoughtful of our neighbors and do not park on grass, or block driveways, and be courteous to pedestrian and automobile traffic. Our children’s safety is one of our top priorities and your help is much appreciated.
You may drop-off or pick-up your child using the “drop off/pick up” lane on the right side of the parking lot. When using this lane, please make sure your child enters and exits to the right next to the curb, not into the parking lot. This will keep your child safe. If your child is not out front when you arrive for pick-up, please use the inner (passing) lane to circle the parking lot until you see your child. Then you may enter the “loading” lane to pick them up at the curb. Please do NOT block the drop off lane, park in red zones, or unauthorized areas, or leave your car unattended. Thank you for your attention and for keeping your student safe.

The District handbook is in your parent folder in the filing cabinets. It is VERY IMPORTANT that the forms in the Parent Handbook are completed and returned promptly at the start of the school year. One form is needed per child. Extra copies of the handbook are available in the office. Please return your completed forms to the Sherman Oaks office.
