November Message from the Superintendent

Dear SRVUSD Parents/Guardians and Staff,


Over the past few months there has been a robust public discourse around the Personalized Learning ideas.  Almost 1,000 parents have attended one of my fall meetings, offering ideas and asking questions. Staff have engaged through site-based and small group conversations. I have also been able to learn from our high school students through forums at each of our four comprehensive high schools about these ideas.


I am so grateful for the feedback that has helped us build upon our vision to:


  1. Increase student, staff and family options

  2. Improve student wellness (reduce overscheduling and student stress)

  3. Reduce class size with no increase in general fund expense

All of these conversations are making us a better District and community as we work together to make our schools the best they can be with our limited funding.  To continue to gather your feedback, today we are launching a district-wide survey for all parents, staff and 8-12 grade students.


As these ideas have evolved over time, we want to ensure that you have the most recent information available. Before you take the survey, please visit the District’s webpage where you can find more details in a PowerPoint presentation and FAQs. I encourage you to take 5 minutes to click on the following link and complete the survey.


All responses to the survey are anonymous. The survey will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 1, 2017.


The results of this survey are very important. We will use this feedback to further refine our work in order to make recommendations to the Board of Education by the end of January 2018 for the 2018-2019 school year.


As we head into the Thanksgiving break, my thanks to each of you for your support of the students and staff of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. I hope you have a great week full of family, friends and happiness.
