Calendar Change Community Forums
The Board of Education is counting on the district to widely engage our community in this issue. As you know, the district is considering moving up the start of school to August next year, which will align SCUSD with all districts in the region. The number of school days would remain the same: School would start earlier and end earlier. However, it’s important that we hear from employees and parents before this decision is made.
The district is hosting seven community forums on this issue throughout October (one meeting in each Board member area). Please help spread the word and encourage participation.
Below is the schedule of meeting dates and locations (all meetings scheduled for 6 p.m.):
- Thursday, October 8 (Kit Carson – Area 2)
- Monday, October 12 (CK McClatchy – Area 1)
- Wednesday, October 14 (Rosemont – Area 3)
- Tuesday, October 20 (Burbank – Area 5)
- Wednesday, October 21 (West Campus – Area 4)
- Wednesday, October 28 (Hollywood Park – Area 7)
- Thursday, October 29 (Kennedy – Area 6)
We have also launched an online survey. Paper surveys translated into all threshold languages are attached below. Feel free to print them out for your families. Completed surveys should be inter-office mailed to Communications.
We need your help in promoting both the meetings and the survey. To assist you, we have created a sample blurb that explains the issue and lists meeting dates. Please post to your website and/or Facebook page. We have also written sample Infinite Campus Messenger scripts customized by trustee area for you to record and send out.
Thank you for your help in engaging our community before a decision is made.
