  • Illustration of SAT (college entrance exam) logo CVUSD juniors score better

    than State, nation on SAT

    Chino Valley Unified School District 11th-graders taking the SAT in March scored significantly better than similar students statewide and nationally on the standardized test that is widely used for college admission.

    Districtwide, the 2,009 CVUSD 11th graders taking the test (evidence-based reading and writing, and math) had a mean score of 1,005. The State mean score was 965, and the national mean score was 971.

    Chino Valley’s mean score on the evidence-based reading and writing portion of the test was 505. The State’s mean score was 486, and the national mean score was 490.

    Chino Valley’s mean score on the math portion of the SAT was 501. The State mean score was 479, and the national mean score was 481.

    The “new” or redesigned SAT was administered for the first time in March. The redesigned test is scored differently as well as on a different scale, so comparisons between results on this test and previous versions cannot be immediately drawn, according to Julian A. Rodriguez, Director of Assessment and Instructional Technology.

    Participation in the test by Chino Valley 11th-graders greatly increased from previous years because the SAT was offered to all students, the District paid the students’ test fees and took care of the registration process.

    Ayala High had 89% of its 11th-graders taking the test; Chino High, 83%; Chino Hills High, 77%; and Don Lugo High, 64%.

    Prior to the 2013/2014 school year, CVUSD student participation in the SAT “hovered around 45%, consistently,” Rodriguez said. The district’s highest percentage of participation was 48.3% in the 2013/2014 school year, according to Ed Data Education Data Partnership. Participation percentage rates were formerly calculated for students who took the test at any time in their high school careers.

    Now that the district is a part of the SAT School Day program, it can begin tracking participation numbers based on students who take the test that single day.

    Wayne M. Joseph

    Hello, this is Mr. Wayne Joseph, Superintendent of Chino Valley Unified School District, extending a warm welcome as we prepare for the new school year.

    Wednesday, July 6, is the first day of school for Cal Aero Preserve Academy students on Year Round Tracks A, B, and C. The first day of school for Track D is Monday Aug. 1, and Cal Aero junior high students will begin the school year on Monday, Aug. 15.

    It is always exciting to start a new school year. Students reconnect with friends and school staff members, but don’t forget: Parent support and involvement is the most important factor in student success. So, read to your children, work with them on their homework, and support their school-related activities.

    Again, welcome back and have a great school year.

    Thank you.

    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!

    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.
