Superintendent Update


Thank you

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we want to express our gratitude to the ESD community, families and staff for your patience and understanding as we went through Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) last week. Evergreen School District has taken active steps to ensure the safety of all students. Special thank you to ESD teachers, instructional aides, school office staff, district office staff, Child Nutrition Services, Maintenance & Transportation, and school administrators for working together in providing support to meet the safety, academic and nutritional needs of ESD students. Your hard work and dedication to our community is greatly appreciated!


Budget Update - Fiscal Stabilization Plan

On October 10, 2019, the Board of Trustees held a regular board meeting. In this meeting the Board of Trustees approved a fiscal stabilization plan. In this plan, the Board approved closing two schools in 2020-21 school year, and a third school in 2021-22 school year. To clarify, while there has been speculation on which schools are affected, the Board of Trustees has not identified the schools that will be closed. District management is currently putting together a plan to include all relevant information that will be shared to the community once completed.

To get more information on what transpired during the regular board meeting last Thursday, you can listen to the audio recording or view the presentation.


New Law - Senate Bill 328

Yesterday, Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law Senate Bill 328 (Portantino), a bill mandating that all non-rural middle schools and high schools may not begin the regular school day before 8:00 a.m. or 8:30 a.m., respectively. Get more information about this new law.

This survey is designed to help us gage interest not only for an English-Spanish but program, but also the potential for a English-Cantonese/Mandarin and English-Vietnamese program in the future.

Cơ hội học tập song ngữ

Học khu của chúng tôi đang trên một hành trình liên tục để biến trường học của chúng tôi thành nơi tốt nhất để học sinh học tập, nhân viên làm việc và phụ huynh gửi con em họ đến một nền giáo dục tốt. Chúng tôi đang tìm cách mở rộng cơ hội cho các gia đình của chúng tôi với chương trình song ngữ Anh-Tây Ban Nha vào năm 2020-21! Khảo sát này được thiết kế để giúp chúng tôi thu hút sự quan tâm không chỉ đối với một chương trình tiếng Anh-Tây Ban Nha mà còn là tiềm năng cho một chương trình tiếng Anh-tiếng Quảng Đông / tiếng Quan Thoại và tiếng Anh-tiếng Việt trong tương lai.

Khảo sát này được thiết kế để thích ứng với câu trả lời của bạn và sẽ mất từ 3 đến 7 phút để hoàn thành. Cảm ơn bạn trước sự tham gia của bạn.

#iCANHELP Parent Night -- Social Media & Digital Safety

Attention Parents! Do you find Social Media & Technology confusing, scary, or overwhelming? Does your child have a cell phone? Are they connected online through gaming or texting apps, Instagram, or SnapChat? Has your child experienced cyberbullying or conflict with peers online? Parenting a child or teen in this digital age can be a challenge. Quimby Oak Middle School has organized a valuable parent night to provide parents the tools to help children navigate appropriately through the digital world.

On Tuesday, October 15th, Quimby Oak Middle School will be offering a Parent Night in collaboration with #iCANHELP and PTSA. Organization founder, educator, and online expert, Kim Karr will lead a discussion around technology and social media use and online safety.

Please join us for this valuable evening of learning and awareness.

WHEN: Tuesday, October 15th @ 6:00pm

WHERE: Quimby Oak Middle School Gym

WHO: Evergreen Middle School Parents

** This event is intended for parents only. Students at Quimby Oak will be having an assembly presentation tailored for a 7th and 8th grade audience with Kim Karr and the #iCANHELP team. Evergreen parents from LeyVa Middle School and Chaboya Middle School have also been invited to join this parent night opportunity as teen social media use and digital safety are prevalent issues for all schools.
