    Master Plan on

    Board of Education’s

    June 30 agenda

    Three major documents will be up for a vote at the Chino Valley Unified School District Board of Education meeting to be held 7:00 p.m. Thursday, June 30 in the Board Room of the Chino Valley Unified School District Office at 5130 Riverside Drive, Chino.

    The meeting is open to the public.

    The Board is expected to vote on the adoption of a $273.8 million budget for the 2016/2017 school year, the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) for 2016/2017, and a Long Range Facilities Master Plan.

    The LCAP is part of California’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) that school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools are required to develop, adopt, and annually update by July 1 each year. Districts engage parents, staff, and community members to gather input to develop LCAPs that address the needs of all students, with particular emphasis on English learners, foster youth, and low-income students.

    The Long Range Facilities Master Plan is the result of three rounds of meetings held in the last year with teachers, department chairpersons, administrators, and community members, as well as an online and hardcopy survey to obtain feedback on the facilities needs of each school site. The plan, based on student needs over the next 20 years, has identified $1 billion in facility needs.

    An Odyssey of the Mind team from Rhodes Elementary School in Chino was hoping to get in the top 10 at the creative challenge competition’s 2016 World Finals held May 25 to 28 at Iowa State University. Instead, they made it into the top 5 in their division for the problem they tackled: building, riding on, and driving a no-cycle, recycling vehicle.

    There were 44 teams competing on the problem in their division.

    The elated team members, all fifth graders at Rhodes, are Vikram Senthilkumar, Vishnu Sriram, William Sahagun, Sohan Bondada, Jerry Brown, Jayden Churchill, and Analiese Miller. Team coaches are parents David Miller and Gem Sahagun, who help the students with a long term challenge that is part of the competition, and parent Stayci Churchill, who assists the students on a spontaneous challenge. Churchill, the mother of team member Jayden, is a teacher at E.J. Marshall Elementary School in Chino.

    The team earned a spot at the World Finals by placing first in their division at the California State Odyssey of the Mind Tournament, held April 2 at the University of California, Riverside.

    More than 800 teams from around the world competed in the 37th Odyssey of the Mind World Finals. The competition emphasizes creativity and teamwork and has grown into the largest international creative problem-solving competition worldwide, according to the Odyssey of the Mind website.

    Measure M projects

    It is 14 years since the Measure M school construction and modernization bond was approved by voters. In that time, the $150 million bond was leveraged to more than $330 million using a combination of funds from the State Office of Public School Construction, the Deferred Maintenance Fund, and interest earned.  With those funds, the District built five new schools, numerous multi-purpose rooms, a high school science wing, classroom buildings, lunch shelters, computer labs, playground structures, new and renovated athletic facilities, renovated front offices, and performed major overall renovation at several schools. All 30 schools on the original list benefited from Measure M funding.

    Thank you for the support of our students and the Measure M Bond which has now concluded. Below is a link to the book that details the major projects accomplished with the bond.

    Hope to see you at an upcoming meeting!

  • Head and shoulders photo of a woman, Rochelle Moss Art lessons led 2016

    Elementary Teacher of the Year

    to seek career in education

    Rochelle Moss, a fifth grade teacher at Cortez Elementary School in Chino, has been named the 2016 Elementary Teacher of the Year by the Associated Chino Teachers union.

    A teacher for 16 years, she joined the Chino Valley Unified School District as a long term substitute in 1999 at E.J. Marshall Elementary School in Chino. The next year, she became a full time teacher at Hidden Trails Elementary School in Chino Hills. She was at Hidden Trails 10 years, teaching third and fifth graders. This is her fifth year teaching at Cortez.

    Although Moss did not attend school in the Chino Valley Unified School District, her children have attended Newman Elementary, Ramona Junior High, and Don Lugo High, all in Chino.

    “While my children were attending Newman Elementary, a new program called Art in Action was started by parents in the District,” she said. “I was a parent volunteer who taught the Art in Action lessons in my children's' classrooms. I enjoyed teaching the art lessons so much I decided to finish my education to be an elementary teacher.”  

    “I love teaching children” Moss said. “It brings me great joy to see my students having fun while they are learning. I want to be a teacher who inspires and motivates my students, but most of the time I find they are really inspiring me.”

  • Ayala High teacher Rhonda Fellows at podium, Associated Chino Teachers President Todd Hancock stands nearby Former CVUSD student is 2016 Secondary Teacher of the Year

    Ayala High science teacher Rhonda Fellows, who attended Chino Valley schools as a child, has been named the 2016 Secondary Teacher of the Year by the Associated Chino Teachers (ACT) union.

    ACT announced her award at a special ceremony on May 11, and she was honored by the Chino Valley Unified School District Board of Education at its May 19 meeting.

    Fellows attended Ramona Junior High in Chino and was among the first graduating class at Don Lugo High in Chino in 1980.

    Her first teaching job was five years as a biology and introductory physical science teacher at Workman High in the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District.

    She joined the Ayala High staff in 1991 and teaches introductory physical science, biology, and honors biology.

    “I’m kind of numbed by all this,” Fellows said about the award. She said she always encourages her students to be science champions. Every year, she has them sign a Biology Champions poster that she puts on the wall of her classroom.

    Her husband, Richard Fellows, retired from Chino Valley Unified School District more than 10 years ago. He taught biology at Chino High, where he also coached the women’s basketball team and track.

  • Statement on Former Chino Valley Unified Board of Education

    Member Lonnie Truett

    May 13, 2016

    Mr. Lonnie Truett began his service to Chino Valley Unified School District by serving on committees and being involved in the Ayala High School Booster Club. The Truett family dog, Buster, was Ayala’s bulldog mascot for several years.  Mr. Truett’s presence on the sidelines of Ayala football games and the committee work gave him exposure to people who urged him to run for a seat on the Board of Education. He stood for election in 1999, won a seat and continued to serve through 2004.  He served as clerk in 2000 and 2001, president in 2002, board member in 2003 and vice president in 2004.  His service came at a time when enrollment was growing and a successful bond measure provided for five new schools to be built which complemented his background in construction. 

    Mr. Truett always made sure that children were first when dealing with tough issues before the Board. Throughout his years of service, Mr. Truett was dedicated to the betterment of Chino Valley Unified.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.

    Mr. Truett passed away May 12.

    A memorial service will be held 9:30 a.m. Saturday, June 11 at the McCoy Equestrian Center, 14280 Peyton Drive, Chino Hills.

  • Illustration of a computer buttom with the word Feedback on it We want your feedback

    The Chino Valley Unified School District serves a vital role in our community by providing quality education to local students. Our award-winning schools significantly outperform the County and state averages, and our teachers continue to be recognized as educators of the year on both County and state levels.

    However, most of our local schools were literally built decades ago – with some built in the 1950s – and need basic health and safety improvements. We know that if we want to maintain a high-level of academic excellence for our students, we need to invest in our aging schools and technology, improve classrooms, and keep our children safe.

    As we plan for the future of our schools, we need your input! Join the Community Conversation and let us know your priorities for local schools.

    Please print out and complete the feedback form today. Mail or fax it back to us at: Chino Valley Unified School District, 5130 Riverside Drive, Chino, CA. 91710, Fax (909) 548-6096.
