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.

At its June 11 meeting, the San Jose City Council formally recognized Rosemary Elementary School Principal Brian Schmaedick for his dedication to Project Hope and the Cadillac Winchester Neighborhood Association. 

Mr. Schmeadick is retiring this month after 25 years of working in education, the past seven as Rosemary School Principal. His experience includes positions in teaching and school and district-level administration, serving in the Peace Corps, and working as a coordinator for HOPE Rehabilitation Services.

“Brian is an exceptional person and exceptional educator,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “He is dedicated to making the world a better place for children and families, and his enthusiasm makes others want to join in the effort. We will greatly miss him as part of our Campbell family and take confidence in knowing the staff and community will continue the important work for the Rosemary community .”

Lunch will be free of charge at three CUSD schools this summer.

To meet the nutritional needs of children whose families may be vulnerable to hunger, Campbell Union School District will provide nutritious meals, free of charge, at three schools. As a part of the U.S. Seamless Summer Feeding Program, all children from 2 to 18 years old can come eat lunch for free. All children in the community are welcome, regardless of which school or preschool they attend.

Free lunch will be available June 24 – August 13 at:

  • Castlemont Elementary: 11:45am to 12:30pm
  • Sherman Oaks Elementary: 11:00am to 11:45am
  • Monroe Middle School: 11:15am to 12:00pm

Other school districts in the area also are providing meals. There is a mobile app that can help parents and guardians find nearby California Afterschool and Summer Meal Programs locations.  Visit the  CA Meals for Kids website for instructions.

"Hunger doesn’t stop just because school is out. Providing nutritious meals to children throughout the summer helps them return to school ready to learn. ~ Jesus Mendoza, Western Regional Administrator, USDA Food and Nutrition Service

For more information about nutrition services in Campbell Union School District, please call our Child Nutrition Services Department, at 408-341-7210, or email contact [at] campbellusd.org.

Individual reports of students' CAASPP results will be available electronically.

This spring, our students in grades three through eight participated in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). In our district, the test results are just one way that we determine how well our students are doing. We use the results to find areas where students are doing well and those in which they need added support.

Depending on grade level, a student would have taken the following test(s):

  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy (ELA)
    and mathematics in grades three through eight
  • California Alternative Assessment (CAA)
  • California Science Test (CAST) in grades five and eight
  • California Spanish Assessment (CSA) in grades three through eight

This year, the California Department of Education has determined that the results from those tests will be delivered electronically. The reports will be uploaded over the next few weeks, as the individual student reports are finalized. Parents/guardians may access them through their Campbell Union School District PowerSchool Parent account. 

A sample of the student test report is available online on a new parent web page called Starting Smarter.  This site also includes:

  • resources to help understand results on the student score reports.
  • access to sample test questions and practice tests.
  • no-cost resources to support learning.
  • a guide for parent-teacher conferences.

NOTE: If you have not created your PowerSchool Parent account, please obtain the log in information from the office staff at your child’s school.

The last day of school is approaching. Students will be released early on the last three days of school, June 10th through the 12th. All students will be released at 1:10 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Funds increase access to quality after school and summer learning programs

In a region where an income chasm divides the “haves” and the “have-nots,” the SJ Learns grant* is helping more Campbell Union School District (CUSD) students attain their highest potential. The funding has helped to increase the access that disadvantaged students have to the district’s quality after school and summer programs, and to enrich and extend the learning opportunities offered.

After reviewing success from the 2018-19 school year grant of more than $131,000, the SJ Learns grantors awarded CUSD a two-year renewal of $260,712.

The funding from SJ Learns and other grants support and expand several beyond-the-school-day programs:

  • Learning Express is a school-year program that provides targeted student groups with the opportunity to get homework support and early literacy interventions for kindergarten through third grade.students work on tech project
  • Students in all of our after school programs engage in STEAM, health and fitness, social emotional learning and service learning.
  • The summer ACHIEVE program offers meaningful academic and enrichment learning opportunities for children who are most in need of academic support and a safe place during the summer months. Our efforts are focused on reducing summer learning loss, providing an engaging and safe place for students, and closing the achievement gap. 
  • Additionally, we strive to develop the key competencies of critical thinking, creativity, innovation, collaboration, and empathy. Students benefit as the academic components are taught by credentialed teachers in partnership with trained Expanded Learning staff who provide the enrichment components that foster cooperative learning, skill building, and opportunities for children to try something new.

As the operator of these programs, CUSD can ensure quality and alignment with what students experience during the school day, promote achievement for all students, and monitor what efforts are showing the best outcomes. Documenting successes has made CUSD a desirable choice for community grant programs and partnerships, enabling us to further expand the program and opportunities at each of our 12 schools.

For more information about CUSD’s after school and summer programs, contact Campbell Union School District’s Extensions Department, at 408-364-4200 ext. 6378.

* The grant is made possible, in part, by the SJ Learns grant-making strategy of San Jose Public Library Foundation and the City of San Jose.
