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.

Savvy cyber use and digital citizenship are focus of after school partnership with San Jose State

“More students than ever have daily access to computers and the internet,” said District Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “Teaching them to think more about how they’re engaging with technology is a crucial life skill that our teachers reinforce daily, and the SJSU Cyber Spartans partnership enhances and extends those lessons into the afterschool hours.”

This month, for two days per week, SJSU Cyber Spartans students have been teaching and mentoring Sherman Oaks after school students in grades 4–6. They have been using a new cyber security curriculum that the university students created, with lessons that cover coding, cyber security, and digital citizenship. 

The month-long program culminated this week with a panel presentation from cyber security professionals from Cisco Systems (pictured left) who spoke about their education, their careers and the key skills needed for success: enjoy learning and solving problems, collaborate with others and be willing to work hard, stay curious and challenge yourself to keep learning new things. 

"The kids really like it," Viramontez said. "When students see the relevance of what they are studying and how it can support their aspirations, they become truly engaged in learning.”

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.
