Updated Sun, Feb 24th

Last month, Brian Schmaedick announced that he will be retiring from the position of Principal at Rosemary. 

As he shared in the letter sent out to the Rosemary community on February 15:  

"Rosemary has been a special place since long before I took over as principal in 2012.  There is a spirit of dedication here, a spirit of collaboration and of caring that makes it a wonderful place for kids.  At Rosemary, leadership is shared.  We have strong leaders all over campus and all significant decisions are made by a team or by the whole staff.  The responsibility to lead does not sit in the principal’s office alone."  

We need our community's help in selecting the best possible person to be our next Principal.  You are invited to join Lena Bundtzen, Assistant Superintendent for Rosemary Elementary ‘s New Principal Search Community Input Meeting.  You will learn more about the hiring process and provide input on the characteristics and attributes you would like to see in our new Rosemary leader for the 2019-20 school year.

Rosemary School is marching forward as a member of the EL Education network of schools.  

EL Education is a 25-year-old organization that grew out of a partnership between Outward Bound USA and the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

EL Education schools are bound together by an expanded understanding of student achievement that prioritizes not only mastery of grade-level skills and knowledge, but that puts equal importance on the development each student's character -  challenging every child to develop into model citizens in our community.

Students at EL Education schools demonstrate craftsmanship by creating work that is accurate and beautiful in conception and execution.  Rosemary staff receive extensive professional development in a proven set of research-based core practices that guide our school transformation.  More about EL Education.

We invited parents, students, employees and the community to share thoughts about what we're doing well and where we can improve.

We engage parents, students, employees and the community in developing our Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs) so that our decisions and plans are more responsive to our community’s educational priorities. LCAPs describe the school's overall vision for students, annual goals, and specific actions we will take to achieve the vision and goals.

In addition to other important student performance data, we invite input from our stakeholders in a variety of ways, both formal and informal. With a focus on district goals, we use the information to make decisions about programs and to seek added support through community grants and partnerships. As a result of last year’s feedback, some schools added field trips, others added counselors, and still others directed funds to support homework help or art instruction.

A few months ago, we invited parents, students, employees and the community to engage in an online forum, using Thoughtexchange.com to share their own thoughts and rate the thoughts of others about what we're doing well and where we can improve. We were able to receive direct input from thousands of stakeholders.

School administrators are sharing the school-level results with their committees and staff, as part of their planning process for next year. District-level Top Thoughts results are compiled into two interactive reports that appear on our LCAP webpage.

A Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

Preparing our students for success in the yet-to-be-defined workplace of the future is rewarding and challenging. Recently, the challenges have increased with changes to economic conditions.

A few major factors have placed new strains on school and district budgets for our district and many others in the region.

  1. Declining enrollment due to families moving to more-affordable places to live;
  2. Flattening State revenue
  3. Unexpected, State-imposed increases to our pension program costs; and
  4. Increased cost and demand for special education services for students.

The bottom line: Campbell Union School District will need to make $2 million in adjustments to our operating budget for the coming school year. 


We are up to the challenge. We have taken some steps already to mitigate some the impacts of that large funding cut:

  • Our energy and water conservation systems are complete,
  • We have secured several grants to support students’ education and wellness,  
  • We trimmed $1.8 million from the current year’s budget, and
  • We are exploring ways to further reduce costs for services outside of the classroom.

Our fiscal responsibility has earned us the public’s confidence and support. Our community shares our commitment to educate all students to their highest potential, approving school bonds to maintain and modernize our buildings and grounds and a parcel tax to provide competitive teacher salaries and up-to-date classroom technology.

Despite serious fiscal challenges coming our way, we are committed to maintaining both our financial solvency and the integrity of our instructional programs as we prepare our students for the opportunities of their yet-to-be-defined futures.
