If you are waiting for your preordered Spirit Wear t-shirts and sweatshirts, unfortunately, there has been a delay. We are hoping that they will arrive by mid-January. And we still plan to have extra stock at that time for sale. Again, we apologize for the delay and hope to have the Spirit Wear to you soon!

State’s updated accountability charts offer simpler view of complex data.

This month, the California Department of Education released the second edition of the state’s School Dashboard, the two-year-old accountability tool for measuring local schools and districts across a number of indicators. This 2018 version contains two new data points and improved graphics for easier viewing. (Download the overview flyer.)

dashboard logo"The color-based charts provide an easier way to see students progress through multiple measures, such as academics, school climate, and parent engagement," said Shelly Viramontez, Superintendent of Campbell Union School District (CUSD). "We’re committed to preparing our TK-8 students for their 21st century workplace and, as it evolves, this tool will offer a way to gauge progress and measure effectiveness."

Before viewing dashboards for CUSD schools, please note:

  • The Local Indicator Data on each school’s dashboard is not specific to that school but represents the entire district.
  • There is no district-wide dashboard. The district-level dashboard is represented by CUSD’s one non-charter school in 2018 report: Campbell Middle School. For the 2019 report, Rosemary Elementary school will represent the district as the district’s non-charter school.

Our schools have many systems and partnerships in place to assist us with student safety, including alert family and community members who can be extra “eyes and ears” for us. 

Our QuickTip system offers a confidential way for students, parents and neighbors to report bullying, suspicious incidents, vandalism or other safety related information online, by email quicktip [at], or by phone (408) 341-7171.

We appreciate your support with keeping our students safe.
