We are building a network of community experts to give our students real-world experiences to discover their passions and see applications for their learning in school. 

What’s your expertise? Science? Music? Cars? Landscaping? Art? Health? The possibilities are many and could bring our elementary and/or middle school students new ideas about the world and their future shaping it.

Care to share? 
Please complete this Community Expert Connections form. We will share the information you provide with our educators in the fall, and those who see a match to their learning objectives will contact you to schedule a classroom connection experience.

During the school year, our online student safety management system, called Gaggle, reviews student-generated documents for words and phrases that trigger a concern for student safety. Please note that Gaggle will not be active during our summer break. It will conclude at the end of school on June 10 and resume on the first student day of school.  Documents will not be reviewed by Campbell Union School District staff for words and phrases that may be troubling.

Students participating in the Web-to-one program are turning in their devices in to their schools by June 10th

Parental supervision of at-home devices is recommended, as always.  Helpful links for parents from Common Sense Media.

Eighth Graders Pave Pathway to Biliteracy

CUSD Schools encourage proficiency in multiple languages

While fluency in more than one language has always been an admirable skill, biliteracy is increasingly important to employers in the U.S. and  around the world. This year, 87 Campbell Union School District (CUSD) eighth graders (13%) earned the Middle School Pathway Award Towards the Seal of Biliteracy awarded by the Santa Clara County Seal of Biliteracy Consortium. It is a milestone toward earning the State Seal of Biliteracy at the end of high school and a skill that brings many benefits.

We are so proud of our student’s accomplishments through the Pathway program. This is one of the ways that we honor the rich heritage of our students linguistically, culturally and ethnically,” said District Superintendent Shelly Viramontez.In fact, several of our students received the award for proficiency in three languages.”

“Research shows that being bilingual and biliterate fosters mental dexterity, builds cultural appreciation, and validates the rich cultural backgrounds of our students,” said Denise Kilpatrick, CUSD’s Coordinator of English Language Development. “The students undergo a rigorous process of learning and demonstrating their competency.”

The Pathway Award recognizes students who, by the end of 8th grade, have demonstrated a commitment to becoming biliterate, reaching a high degree of proficiency in both English and at least one another language, and meeting a rigorous set of criteria to qualify. Oral presentations about the benefits of understanding other cultures were one of the performance options that some of the students chose.

Thanks to families for supporting students and schools

As we move toward the end of the 2021-22 school year, one of the wonderful things we see is resuming some of our traditional end-of-year experiences. Awards assemblies, dances, and promotion events have been happening as students move on to the next grade level.

To all of our families: Thank you for weathering the challenges of the past two years with us, for your contributions to the school, and for making a positive difference for students, teachers and staff.

To those of you promoting out of our district: Thank you for your many years of partnership. You have invested in your child and your child's school for many years, given of yourself, and helped to make us a better district. While we hate to lose you from our system, we wish you well in your transition.

As we look forward to the new school year, we hope for the return of more activities that bring our school communities together for fun, learning, and building relationships.

For those returning to our schools for the new school year, we look forward to seeing you on our campuses on August 18th.  Please watch for information from your schools in early August for the details you’ll need to start the school year strong.

As for COVID-19, we’ll follow the guidance from public health officials and continue to guard student and employee safety. We will continue monitoring local conditions and protocols this summer and send notices to families and staff as we know more about what the public health department will require.
