Family Involvement: You Make the Difference!
Involvement by parents and family members makes a big difference in a child’s success at school. According to the National Education Association, children with involved parents are more likely to be promoted, pass their classes, have better social skills, attend school regularly, graduate, and go on to postsecondary education.

New Standards Coming to California Classrooms
For the first time, nearly the whole nation has the same high academic standards for students. That means all students will get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state.
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) emphasize skills in collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity. They were designed by teachers, parents, business leaders and education experts to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.
Find out how Campbell Union School District is preparing for new standards and assessments at any of our three informational meetings in November 2013.
"New standards, called Common Core State Standards, are on the way for all students in California, beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. These standards set high expectations for all students. They are rigorous and internationally benchmarked; research- and evidence-based; aligned with college and career expectations; and they build on the foundation laid by individual states. The aim of this state-led initiative is to develop standards that ensure all students are held to consistent expectations that will prepare them for college and career."
