NUSD needs parent/guardian and community input as we develop our 2019-20 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

The LCAP is an annually-revised plan that addresses how NUSD will meet the needs of our students in the coming year, with a special focus on students who are English learners, foster youth, and/or socio-economically disadvantaged.

You’re welcome to attend either the morning or evening session:

Thursday, January 24, 2019
9:00 am – 11:30 am

Thursday, January 24, 2019
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Both sessions will be held at Newark Unified School District: 5715 Musick Ave., Newark.

More information on the LCAP is available at: www.newarkunified.org/lcap

BLIZZARD BEAR TIMES

Notes from the Principal

Dear Snow Families,
We have so much to be thankful for during this season of thanksgiving.  As I shared with Snow Teachers and Staff, I recently saw a marquee with the question, “What are you thankful for?”  As I thought about this question many things came to my mind. Just to name a few, family, friends, Snow teachers, staff, students, parents and community.  I am also thankful and grateful for the accomplishments that we have made together as a staff and as a community:

SNOW MISSION

At H. A. Snow Elementary School, we prepare our students for a successful life by providing a world-class education that supports all children with a thought-provoking, academically rigorous education, within a safe, compassionate, and tolerant school.

 

At Snow School we have a Bill of Rights for Students:

Students have the right to learn in a safe, compassionate, tolerant school with people who collaborate, have high expectations, and advocate for their well-being both socially and academically because we believe that ALL children deserve a robust, thought-provoking, rigorous education.

Students are encouraged, and have the right, to be active class members in making decisions and problem solving, so they become compassionate leaders who understand societal expectations and serve as stewards of the world.

BE SAFE, BE RESPECTFUL, BE RESPONSIBLE

Newark Unified School District strives for continuous improvement in our service to students and families. We achieve this through evaluating our outcomes, identifying strengths, developing recommendations for improvement, and refining our practices.

One of the ways we evaluate our strengths and find areas for improvement is by asking parents/guardians about their experiences and recommendations.

Please take a few minutes to provide us feedback that will inform our areas of focus for improvement, our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), and our future practices.

Logramos esto evaluando nuestros resultados, identificando fortalezas, desarrollando recomendaciones para mejora y perfeccionando nuestras prácticas.

Una de las maneras de evaluar nuestras fortalezas y encontrar áreas para mejora es preguntarles a los padres y tutores sobre sus experiencias y recomendaciones.

Por favor tome unos minutos para darnos comentario que informa nuestras áreas de atención para mejora, el Plan de Control Local de rendición de cuentas (LCAP) y nuestras futuras prácticas.
