Dear CVUSD family,
Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year! As the mercury dips ever so slightly and another school year begins, I am reminded of the saying that “the more things change, the more things stay the same.” Every school year brings new changes, some unique to individuals and others more universally evident in our surroundings.
Across the District, you will notice that much physical construction and renovation has occurred over the summer. Through our Measure G modernization bonds, Chino High School is sporting brand new, relocated baseball and softball fields, allowing for classroom construction for the new CHS project. All five high schools have security cameras installed and operational, and staff at many campuses will be utilizing keyless entry for added security. Students at Ayala High school will notice tall, steel beams forming the skeleton of their soon-to-be science building, and will now stay cool in their gymnasium with the recent installation of extensive HVAC systems. Students at three elementary schools will be sitting in newly modernized classrooms, with furniture and features suitable to an exceptional 21st century education. Still other elementary school students will be working in temporary portable classrooms, as their buildings are renovated for modernization.
Yet with all of these physical changes, one thing remains the same: our dedication to and focus on our students. It is because of our commitment to providing a rigorous, relevant, 21st century education for our students that we continue to integrate real world application and technology through both traditional and pathway courses. For the 5th year in a row, our School District will provide free PSAT and SAT exams and exam preparation for our high school students. CVUSD teachers and administrators continue to work throughout the year to better themselves in order to inspire our youth and encourage positive impacts in their lives. Our purpose includes nurturing our youths’ mental and emotional well-being, as evidenced by the recognition of most of our schools in the area of positive behavior intervention systems.
With so many positive foundations already in place to guide us, it’s an exciting time for change. Let’s go forth together this year on a journey of personal and collective improvement for ourselves, our community and most importantly, our students.
