  • To our community:

    Chino Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) is striving to provide an exceptional education to every student who enters our schools.  Understanding how to best serve our students begins with fostering strong positive relationships with parents and the community.   For the first time, CVUSD conducted a District-wide survey, School Quality Survey for parents, staff and students grades 6-12.  Please visit our website http://www.chino.k12.ca.us/ (District Shortcuts on the left) to review the results of the 2017 School Quality Survey.

    May 16, 2017

    On Thursday, May 11, 2017, the California State Board of Education took no action on Oxford Preparatory Academy-Chino’s charter renewal appeal. The State Board’s decision not to prevent the expiration of OPA-Chino’s charter on June 30th of this year, has reverberated throughout the Chino Valley.

    One news report stated that State Board members grappled with whether the school “might be fatally encumbered with unknown debts accrued by its ousted founder.”

    Some months ago, on January 3, 2017, the San Bernardino County Board of Education voted unanimously (5-0) not to receive Oxford-Chino’s renewal petition based on similar reasons. County Board member Laura Mancha publicly expressed at that meeting her concerns regarding the County exposing themselves to unknown and long-term liability.

    When I spoke to the Oxford parents at Chino Hills High School on December 20, 2016, I expressed the same reservations that the San Bernardino County Board of Education and the State Board of Education were to elucidate later concerning the unidentified financial liability that may be in Oxford’s future. In short, three separate entities, our District, the County, and the State ultimately reached the same conclusion.

    What has been lost in the discussion (for some) is that no recovery plan can anticipate the unknown. I could not, in good conscience, recommend to my Board that they embrace potentially large financial liabilities that may be looming in the coming months. Oxford officials characterized this as an unwillingness by the District to work with them, not acknowledging that there may be more challenges in the ensuing days for Oxford.

    But all of these reasons, credible though they may be, do not offer the solace and comfort that is sought by Oxford students, parents, and employees. Any discussion short of how to “save the school” is met with disappointment and heartbreak.

    My Board and I are committed to making the transition for Oxford students as seamless as we possibly can. We have enough student seats throughout the District to place all of the Oxford students if need be, and though we may not be able to give parents their first or even second choice of schools within our District, we will do our best to try to accommodate each and every request.

    At our November 28, 2016, board meeting, I spoke of a “rainbow” occurring after all the torrential rains are over. My Board and I are ready to work to make that rainbow a reality for all of Oxford-Chino’s students.

    February 2, 2017

    To provide a more complete picture of what contributes to a positive educational experience for our students and to help the public understand the performance of our schools, California will be releasing its new California School Dashboard this year.

    The State Board of Education recently approved the dashboard, an evaluation rubric for the state’s comprehensive school accountability and continuous improvement system that supports the overall objectives of the Local Control Funding Formula – the state’s funding and accountability process adopted in 2013.

    The evaluation rubrics are designed to measure school and district performance in eight priority areas that define quality education: basic services; implementation of the new state standards; parental involvement; student achievement (including English learners’ progress); pupil engagement; school climate; access to broad course of study; and pupil outcomes.

    By displaying the range of results in an interactive, web-based dashboard that will be unveiled to the public in March, the evaluation rubric will serve as the primary method of measuring student achievement, school performance and progress toward more equitable outcomes for all students. The dashboard is to be fully operational by the 2017-18 school year. The new system replaces the former Academic Performance Index, which represented a “one-size-fits-all” approach to measuring school performance using a single, narrow metric.

    This is an exciting and important step for our district/school and schools across California as we upgrade our education system in order to prepare our students for 21st century careers and college. We will continue to keep you apprised of further developments as the state rolls out the California School Dashboard.

    Thank you for supporting your student(s) and being a partner in educating the children in our community.

  • The word Success in differetn colors rising up stair steps Updated Local Control and Accountability Plan approved

    Chino Valley Unified School District’s annual plan to increase academic performance for all students was approved by the Board of Education at its June 30 meeting.

    The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is required of California school districts each year as part of the State’s effort to allow districts to have more control over the State money they receive, as well as to increase support to English Learners, foster youth, and low-income students. It must be updated each year and reflects the academic goals for a three-year period.

    Chino Valley Unified School District’s LCAP is available on the District’s website at www.chino.k12.ca.us (click on LCAP/LCFF under District Shortcuts on left side of page, and then click on the 2016/2017 LCAP link).
