The San Diego Unified School District is committed to a community-based school reform model to elevate all schools within the district to higher levels of student achievement. This model empowers teachers, students, and parents within a cluster community to improve student achievement. The premise of the community-based model is that true school reform can only be successful if built on a solid foundation across grade levels and collaboration between schools and through active parent engagement in the learning process. (From the SDUSD website)The administrators, teachers, parents and staff in the La Jolla Cluster have spent three years engaging all stakeholders and collaborating through meetings and surveys to determine what La Jolla’s educational community needs to make our already solid foundation even stronger. The final survey is the result of everyone’s hard work and it included the actual Partnership Agreement we will bring to SDUSD for review. The majority of the language in our Agreement has already been approved by the board in other Partnership Agreements. Items in our Agreement that have no history of approval will first be presented to the relevant departments at the district for review and possible revisions, therefore some language might change before we officially present to the School Board for approval.
As you know, one of the items in past surveys included submitting a waiver proposal from our teachers to the San Diego Education Association. We are pleased to announce teachers at all five schools in our cluster overwhelmingly supported this decision and have since prepared the waiver and submitted it to SDEA! The Union will be voting on whether to grant the waiver at one of their May meetings.
We had over 1,200 responses for our final survey with a 98% approval rating. Thank you, once again, for your commitment to the education of our community’s children.
