FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT...
November 2017

Greetings Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,

This has been a busy time in the John Swett Unified School District. The District is currently engaged in efforts to continuously improve climate and culture conditions within our schools, focus on improving academic achievement for students, and to prepare for our upcoming school bond projects. One of our major areas of focus this year has been on improving the culture and climate inside schools and classrooms. Each school has a Culture and Climate Committee comprised of teachers and staff who are devoting time and effort to making sure our schools are safe, inviting, and positive. The Committee focuses on teaching students rules, positive behavior expectations, routines, and procedures. These help students know and understand how they are expected to behave at school. As a result, we have seen a decline in suspensions as compared to this time last year.

We are also busy working on ways to improve student achievement in our District. We are investing in online resources to support student learning such as ST Math, Accelerated Reader, Reading A to Z, and many others. We are increasing student access to Chromebooks and other technologies to support the learning process. Our leadership team spends considerable time in classrooms, supporting teachers, and determining ways to support struggling and at-risk students.

Finally, our District is preparing for the upcoming school construction projects that will be starting soon. We have selected a final site design for Carquinez Middle School (option A) and are finalizing plans to begin the remodel of John Swett High School. Please visit our website at www.jsusd.org to find out more details about these projects. We care about the thoughts and viewpoints of our stakeholders. As such, we have convened community meetings to gather the public's viewpoints about our bond projects, held open meetings of our Facilities Sub-Committee of the Governing Board, and have been open and accommodating to various perspectives about the work that is about to begin to improve our school facilities. Please continue to let us know how you feel. I can always be reached by email at cmiller@jsusd.org or by personal cell phone at 925-639-7408.

Thank you!
Charles Miller, Ed. D.

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
