When Stanley Echols was stationed in Guantanamo Bay with the National Guard, he received a most welcome gift: 75 boxes of Girl Scout cookies.
“The Girl Scout cookies that I received and dispersed in Guantanamo Bay was such an uplifting experience and gesture for so many soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen and coasties,” says Echols, a reserve officer who is a director in SCUSD’s Student Hearing and Placement Office.
SCUSD’s Parent Leadership Pathway program – free workshops offered at schools over the course of 10 weeks — is featured in a National Journal article.
The article quotes Matsuyama Elementary School Principal Judy Montgomery (“Schools can’t run without parents”) and parent Susana Bravo, who says the program “helped us understand that there are ways to get help…We’re not alone.”

Beginning teachers who participate in Induction experience enhanced professional growth and development, and become increasingly attached to teaching through a rich and thoughtful induction process. Each teacher gains a professional voice by working in close concert with experienced colleagues and trained support providers to chart their progress through the California Standards for the Teaching Profession.
From 1988 through 1992 the California Department of Education and Commission on Teacher Credentialing sponsored the California New Teacher Project (CNTP), a pilot study examining alternative strategies for supporting and assessing new teachers. Based on the positive outcomes and findings of the CNTP, the Legislature and the Governor enacted SB1422 in 1992, establishing an Induction Program. Induction’s purpose is to implement cost-effective models for new teacher development in order to “transform academic preparation into practical success in the classroom, [and] to retain greater numbers of capable beginning teachers….(Ed. Code Section 44279.2(a)).”
Purpose – To create and deliver beginning teacher-centered quality services.
