FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT...
September/October 2017

Hello Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
Over the last month we have been busy preparing for the start of school in the John Swett Unified School District. All of our classrooms have been cleaned, floors stripped and waxed, classroom desks repaired, and playgrounds improved. In addition, we have been making our school grounds clean and inviting. We have also been very busy working to improve the climate and culture within our schools. Our administrators, teachers, and staff have received specialized instruction for meeting the needs of all our students. Our staff has learned about trauma informed instruction, learned ways to explicitly teach and model rules and expectations, and have developed ways to better support students who struggle at school. We are working on systems and procedures to ensure that all students know how to behave at school so teachers can teach and students can learn.

Our Governing Board has been busy as well. Under the guidance of our Trustees, we have implemented a plan to improve traffic issues at Rodeo Hills Elementary, funded a crossing guard for the crosswalk between Carquinez Middle School and John Swett High School, and have set up two community meetings to gather community input about our upcoming school bond projects. We will hold these meetings so our community can obtain clarity about the bond projects and to give us your feedback. These will be held on Wednesday, August 30th at 6:30 pm at the Crockett Community Center and Tuesday, September 5th at 6:30 pm at the Lefty Gomez Community Center. All are welcome and we hope you come to learn more about our school construction bonds. Your voice about our schools is important and valued. Come tell us what you think!

As always, I am available by cell phone (925-639-7408) and email (cmiller@jsusd.org). Also, please feel free to visit our District Office and say hello. The John Swett Unified School District is an amazing place and our dedicated professionals work for the good of all students, focusing on promoting higher student achievement by motivating and challenging every student to strive enthusiastically toward academic and personal success.

Thank you, Phillips 66, for your continued support and generosity!

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.
