The fires north of our County have impacted the air quality in our community.  PVUSD has been monitoring reports and today's report triggered action to ensure student safety. PVUSD' Risk and Safety Manager, Sheila Shanahan, sent out a notice to staff to ensure students were in the safest locations.  In addition, due to the unhealthy air quality report, PVUSD has postponed the Aptos High and Watsonville High Friday night football games.  PVUSD joins other districts in the Central Coast Section in pushing back these games.  Student health is a priority for PVUSD and these games will be made up at a later date.

Grizzlies Team Up With Pilots to Gain Home Field Advantage — and Promote Airport Safety!  (Español abajo)

 

Pajaro Valley Unified School District and the Watsonville Pilots Association have joined forces to advocate for the long-awaited Pajaro Valley High School Athletic Field and Auditorium Projects. The District’s Board and the Watsonville Pilot’s Association Board have both unanimously voted to approve an agreement in which the parties committed to work together to move the campus developments forward in the most protective manner from an airport safety perspective. The partnership results in a win-win for both groups and progress for the community.

 

Dr. Rodriguez, Superintendent of PVUSD, stated, “The District is thrilled its work with the Pilots Association will pave the way forward for these critical construction projects, and the whole team is very excited PVHS’s students will finally be able to enjoy the complete high school experience. We are dedicated to exploring all avenues that would facilitate additional progress in that direction.”

 

The WPA initiated communications after the School District proposed designing and locating the development within the existing footprint of the school. Due to the unique circumstances involved at the High School Site, this accord allows the High School to have a complete campus, while committing the School District to implement safety features which will protect the students, the public, and the pilots. As part of the deal, School District will assist the City in reducing vertical obstacles and/or install approach lighting which will benefit planes in their final decent into the airport. The reduction offers pilots an alternative flight path for approach to the airport which alleviates concerns regarding the proximity the proposed playing field to the airport safety zone.

 

John Randolph, WPA Legal Affairs Liaison, stated, “The Airport Safety features in the Agreement will benefit the students, the public, and the pilots. We appreciate District Superintendent Michele Rodriguez for having the vision and skill to know how to negotiate a way forward. The WPA will work actively with the School District to obtain the approvals needed.”

 

The Athletic Field Project will replace existing fields with an updated regulation size track and football field facility with accompanying press box and concession stand. The improvements will provide PVHS students with the opportunity to practice and compete on their own turf for the first time. The 15,000 square foot, 450 seat auditorium will be used for a variety of school functions including visual and performing arts performances. For more information about either project, please visit http://www.pvusd.net/construction.

 

Los Grizzlies se unen a los pilotos para ganar ventaja en el campo  y para promover la seguridad en los aeropuertos.

 

El distrito escolar unificado del valle de Pajaro y la asociación de pilotos de Watsonville  han unido sus fuerzas para abogar por el tan esperado campo atlético y el proyecto de auditoria para la escuela Pajaro Valley High. La Mesa Directiva Asociación de Pilotos de Watsonville han votado unánimemente para aprobar un acuerdo en el cual las partes se comprometieron a trabajar juntos para mobilizar los desarrollos de la escuela de la manera más segura desde una perspectiva de seguridad aeroportuaria. Los resultados de la asociación es positiva para ambos grupos y para el progreso de la comunidad.

 

La Dr. Rodriguez, Superintendente de PVUSD, declaró: "El Distrito está encantado de que su trabajo con la Asociación de Pilotos allane el camino para estos proyectos críticos de construcción, y todo el equipo está muy emocionado que los estudiantes de la escuela Pajaro Valley finalmente podrán disfrutar de la máxima experiencia escolar. Nos dedicamos a explorar todas las vías que faciliten progresos adicionales en esa dirección".

 

La asociación de pilotos inició las comunicaciones después de que el Distrito Escolar propuso diseñar y localizar el desarrollo dentro de los planes existente de la escuela. Debido a las circunstancias únicas involucradas en el sitio de la escuela secundaria, este acuerdo permite que la escuela secundaria tenga un campus completo, mientras que compromete al Distrito Escolar a implementar características de seguridad que protegerán a los estudiantes, al público y a los pilotos. Como parte del acuerdo, el Distrito Escolar ayudará a la Ciudad en la reducción de obstáculos verticales y / o instalación de iluminación de aproximación que beneficiará a los aviones en su final descenso en el aeropuerto. La reducción ofrece a los pilotos una ruta de vuelo alternativa para acercarse al aeropuerto, lo que alivia las preocupaciones sobre la proximidad del campo atlético propuesto a la zona de seguridad del aeropuerto.

 

John Randolph, Coordinador de Asuntos Jurídicos de la asociación, declaró: "Las características de Seguridad en el Aeropuerto en el Acuerdo beneficiarán a los estudiantes, al público y a los pilotos. Apreciamos a la Superintendente de Distrito, la Doctora Michelle Rodríguez, por tener la visión y habilidad para saber cómo negociar un camino adelante. La asociación trabajará activamente con el Distrito Escolar para obtener las aprobaciones necesarias."

 

El Proyecto de Campo Atlético reemplazará los campos existentes con una pista actualizada de regulación y una instalación de campo de fútbol con el cuadro de prensa y el un espacio de concesión. Las mejoras proporcionarán a los estudiantes de la escuela la oportunidad de practicar y competir en su propio campo por primera vez. El auditorio de 15,000 pies cuadrados y 450 asientos será usado para una variedad de funciones escolares incluyendo actuaciones visuales y de artes escénicas.

We are very excited to announce that NASA Astronaut Jose Hernandez will make a return visit to PVUSD on Thursday October 12, 2017 at the Mello Center. Doors open at 6 PM. 

 

In 2016, PVUSD parents and students filled the Mello Theater and were motivated and inspired by Mr. Hernandez’ story. In addition to speaking about his journey to become a NASA astronaut, he spoke about his migrant childhood, “…As a child, Hernández worked alongside his family and other farmworkers throughout the fields of California, harvesting crops and moving from one town to another. He attended many schools and didn't learn to speak English until he was 12. His first memory of space is about adjusting the television in order to watch the Apollo 17 mission in 1972.”  Mr. Hernandez’ life mirrors the lives of many of our PVUSD students; they and their families will walk away with a deeper understanding of the role and purpose of perseverance, family support and seeking higher education in their pursuit of reaching for the stars”.

 

This is made possible by the support of PVUSD Ed. Services, Extended Learning, Migrant Seasonal Head Start and the SCCOE.

 

If you have any questions please call 786-2365, Parent Ed. Specialist phone number.

 

¡El astronauta José Hernández vuelve a visitar nuestro Distrito!

 

Es un placer anunciar que el astronauta de la NASA José Hernández hará una visita de regreso a nuestro Distrito el jueves 12 de octubre de 2017 en el Teatro Mello. Las puertas abren a las 6:00 PM. 

 

En 2016, padres y estudiantes del Distrito llenaron el Teatro Mello y fueron motivados e inspirados por la historia del Sr. Hernández. Además de hablar sobre su viaje para convertirse en astronauta de la NASA, habló sobre su infancia migrante: "Como niño, Hernández trabajó junto a su familia y otros trabajadores agrícolas en los campos de California, recolectando cosechas y trasladándose de una ciudad a otra. Asistió a muchas escuelas y no aprendió a hablar inglés hasta los 12 años. Su primer recuerdo del espacio es el de ajustar la televisión para ver la misión de Apolo 17 en 1972. "La vida del señor Hernández refleja la vida de muchos de nuestros estudiantes de PVUSD; ellos y sus familias se quedarán con una comprensión más profunda del papel y el propósito de la perseverancia, el apoyo familiar y la búsqueda de la educación superior en su búsqueda de 'alcanzar las estrellas'".

 

Esto es posible gracias al apoyo de PVUSD Ed. Servicios, Aprendizaje Extendido, Migrant Seasonal Head Start y el Condado de Educación de Santa Cruz.  Si tiene alguna pregunta por favor llame al 786-2365, con el especialista de educación para padres.

The District is collaborating with community partners such as Salud Para La Gente, PVPSA, First 5, Applied Survey Research, Encompass Head Start and City of Watsonville Parks and Recreation to place this program in the hands of every family in our community.  “We know that reading is the key to success and that motivation and opportunity play a key role.  We want Watsonville, Pajaro and Aptos families to be the motivational force that encourages children to read.  Let’s do our part to promote early literacy and ensure that our students are proficient readers by third grade,” stated Dr. Rodriguez.

Superintendent Dr. Michelle Rodriguez is thrilled to introduce Footsteps 2 Brilliance (F2B) and to invite its entire community to be a part of this early literacy initiative.   On Sunday, September 17, PVUSD will be participating at the City of Watsonville Fiestas Patrias event where we will be introducing Paso a Paso, Creciendo Juntos/Step by Step, Growing Together (Paso a Paso), the District’s efforts to ensure our students are reading at grade level by 3rd grade.  A small group of 20 Early Childhood Education families have already read 85, 581 in just eight weeks. Dr. Rodriguez will be challenging the entire community to read 2 Million words with their children by January 1, 2018. 

 

Not all students have access to early-readiness social or academic opportunities in our community.  Through Paso a Paso, Superintendent Rodriguez and her team seek to improve the academic success of children and families in PVUSD and the community as a whole.  F2B provides a comprehensive curriculum of over 1,000 English and Spanish books, songs, and games that are fun for children and easy for parents to access on any smartphone, tablet, or computer with or without an Internet connection. The District is developing an outreach plan to get this program in the hands of every family in our community through multiple community partners such as Salud Para La Gente, PVPSA, First 5, Encompass Head Start and City of Watsonville Parks and Recreation.   

 

“We are honored to partner with Footsteps 2 Brilliance in this transformative community-wide initiative that gives all children equal access to high quality bilingual English and Spanish literacy instruction. PVUSD believes this is a powerful and effective model to prepare our youngest to be ready for school,” stated Dr. Rodriguez. 

 

Please stop by PVUSD booth on Sunday, September 17, where staff will be pleased to share more about this early literacy initiative.  If you would like to be a part of this initiative and be more involved, we will have a way for you to register.

 

It is an initiative that involves parents, community members, teachers and school leaders to create a long-lasting communitywide commitment to the success of every child.  Superintendent Rodriguez and the Board of Trustees are confident that this collaborative effort will improve academic success of children and their families for years to come.

La Superintendente Dra. Michelle Rodríguez está encantada de presentar Footsteps 2 Brilliance (F2B) e invitar a toda su comunidad a ser parte de esta iniciativa de alfabetización temprana. El domingo, 17 de septiembre, PVUSD participará en el evento de Fiestas Patrias de la Ciudad de Watsonville, donde estaremos presentando Paso a Paso, Creciendo Juntos / Step by Step, Growing Together, un esfuerzo del Distrito para asegurar que nuestros estudiantes estén a nivel de grado en lectura para tercer grado.  Un pequeño grupo de 20 familias de educación preescolar ya han leído 85,581 palabras en sólo ocho semanas. La Doctora Rodríguez estará retando a toda la comunidad a leer 2 Millones de palabras con sus hijos antes del 1 de enero de 2018.

 

No todos los estudiantes tienen acceso a oportunidades sociales o académicas de preparación temprana en nuestra comunidad. A través de Paso a Paso, la Superintendente Rodríguez y su equipo tratan de mejorar el éxito académico de los niños y las familias en PVUSD. F2B ofrece un currículo integral de más de 1,000 libros, canciones y juegos en inglés y español que son divertidos para los niños y fáciles de acceder para los padres en cualquier smartphone, tableta o computadora con o sin conexión a Internet. El Distrito está desarrollando un plan de alcance para que este programa esté en manos de todas las familias de nuestra comunidad a través de múltiples socios comunitarios como Salud Para La Gente, PVPSA, First5, Encompass Head Start y la Ciudad de Watsonville, Parques y Recreación.

 

"Nos sentimos honrados de asociarnos con Footsteps 2 Brilliance en esta iniciativa transformativa comunitaria que da a todos los niños el mismo acceso a instrucción bilingüe en inglés y español de alta calidad. PVUSD cree que este es un modelo poderoso y eficaz para preparar a nuestros más pequeños miembros a estar listos para la escuela," dijo la superintendente Rodríguez.

 

Por favor pase por el puesto de PVUSD este domingo, 17 de septiembre, donde el personal estará encantado de compartir más sobre esta iniciativa de alfabetización temprana. Si desea ser parte de esta iniciativa y estar más involucrado, tendremos una manera de registrarse.

 

Es una iniciativa que involucra a padres, miembros de la comunidad, maestros y líderes escolares para crear un compromiso comunitario de largo plazo para el éxito de cada niño. La Superintendente Rodríguez y la Mesa Directiva confían en que este esfuerzo colaborativo mejorará el éxito académico de los niños y sus familias durante los próximos años.

Dear Santa Cruz County Families,

 

On Monday, the President issued an order ending DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).  DACA allows undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children to legally remain in the country to go to school and find employment. 

 

More than 200,000 California students are impacted by the rollback. Some DACA protected immigrants may only have six months left in the United States. This change in policy impacts many current and former Santa Cruz County students and families. On Monday, the California Wellness Foundation published the following:

 

Over the past five years, 800,000 young people in the U.S. have pursued the legal channels available to them through the DACA program. A recent national survey of DACA recipients have yielded some important results:

  • 97% of survey respondents are currently employed or enrolled in school.
  • At least 72% of the top 25 Fortune 500 companies, including Apple, General Motors, Amazon, JPMorgan Chase, and Home Depot, employ DACA recipients.

Other research has estimated that DACA beneficiaries would contribute $460.3 billion to the U.S. gross domestic product over the next decade, if the program were to continue.

 

As educational leaders in our county, it is our responsibility to create safe, welcoming environments supporting the success of all students. The elimination of DACA further marginalizes our immigrant families, making some students feel unwanted and unsafe. Many of our students arrive in this country having escaped incredibly difficult living conditions and war-torn communities. Their parents brought them here with hope for their physical safety and well-being and for their futures. All parents have dreams for their children and will sacrifice to keep them safe and well.

 

Last year, all of our School Boards in Santa Cruz County passed resolutions in support of immigrant students and their families.  We hold steadfast to these resolutions in spite of the President's recent actions on DACA. Every child and every family is welcome and supported in Santa Cruz County Schools.  We are committed to supporting the success of all of students. 

 

At the bottom of this message is a list of links to immigration resources and supports.  If you have questions, concerns or are in need of support of any kind, please contact your school or district office.  We are here to serve and support you.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Michelle Rodriguez

What is DACA?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an American immigration policy founded by the Obama administration in June 2012. DACA allows certain illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit

PVUSD and CSEA met on August 10, August 30, and September 6 to continue negotiating reopeners for the 2016-17 school year.


Compensation/Benefits (Tentative Agreement 09/06/17): To ensure the best compensation package for our Classified staff the District and CSEA tentatively reached agreement on the following:

 

Compensation/Benefits (Tentative Agreement 09/06/17): To ensure the best compensation package for our Classified staff the District and CSEA tentatively reached agreement on the following:

  • $1600 one-time off schedule Bonus
  • Up to an additional $1600 pro-rated per Full Time Equivalent(FTE) one-time off schedule Bonus

(For purposes of calculating the FTE, any employee .75 or greater will be considered a full time equivalent)

  • No changes to Health & Welfare Benefits

***For example: A continuing full time Classified employee will receive a one-time BONUS of

$3200.00 with NO changes to benefit coverage.

 

 
   

 

The District continues to work hard to reduce the projected deficit amount through various means, including line-by-line scrutiny and zero-based budgeting. As shown in the chart below, the District efforts have paid off as demonstrated by the District’s and CSEA’s signed Tentative Agreement. The District is confident it can afford the Tentative Agreement, despite the current projection for deficit spending, as this is a one-time bonus.

 

Other Proposals:
Negotiations with CSEA have been productive. On August 30, 2017, the Parties signed off on the following: Article IX: Leaves (ensuring compliance with recent statutory changes). CSEA presented information on their proposals: Article III: Organizational Rights; Article XII: Vacations and Article XIX: Professional Growth. The District also presented information on its proposal: Article VIII: Hours & Overtime.


The District looks forward to an on-going exchange of ideas, through negotiations, in the effort to continue providing a meaningful education for its students and a safe and healthy working environment for its staff. We look forward to our next meeting with CSEA on September 15, 2017. The District offered to resume negotiations with PVFT in early September, including September 12th. The District looks forward to resuming negotiations with PVFT on a mutually agreed upon date.

With the suspension of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, PVUSD publicly reaffirms our commitment to all students, including all undocumented students. We stand strongly beside them dedicated to protecting their right to equitable educational and programmatic services regardless of their immigration status so they may be college and career ready and able to fulfill their individual dreams and aspirations. 

 

We are working with PVPSA to ensure that we provide any additional resources necessary to support our students. If you are aware of any student or family in need of such support, please let your site administrator or your social emotional counselor know so we can mobilize resources.

 

Let us continue to follow our Board Resolution 16-17-25, Support of Immigrant Students and Families, which explicitly states our unwavering commitment and support of Dreamers and other fragile student populations.  We will follow our Board Policy 5111.3 (a) developed a few months ago which protects our students and families.   Below you will find the portion of the policy that protects our students should Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office come to our sites:

 

It is the general policy of the District not to allow any individual or organization to enter a school site if the educational setting would be disrupted by that visit. Because the Governing Board believes that ICE activities in and around schools, early education centers, and adult school facilities would constitute a severe disruption to the learning environment and educational setting for students, any request by ICE to any District personnel to visit a school site shall be immediately forwarded to the Superintendent for review and consultation with legal counsel, to ensure the safety of all students, as well as compliance with Plyler v. Doe and other applicable state and federal laws.

 

All requests for documents by ICE to the District or any District personnel shall be immediately forwarded to the Superintendent for review and consultation with legal counsel and the Governing Board (in closed session if necessary), to ensure the safety of all students, as well as compliance with Plyler v. Doe and other applicable state and federal laws.

Estamos fuertemente al lado de ellos dedicados a proteger su derecho a servicios educativos y programáticos equitativos, independientemente de su estatus migratorio, para que estén preparados para la universidad y la carrera y puedan cumplir con sus sueños y aspiraciones individuales.

Doe y otras leyes estatales y federales aplicables.

PVUSD Poised to Impact Student Learning During 2017-18

 

As we launch into the 2017-18 school year on August 16, PVUSD leadership has a singular and coherent focus on student success. Achieving this mission will involve cultivating collaborative cultures, focusing direction, securing accountability, deepening learning, and ensuring all students are college and career ready upon graduation. Below we highlight significant investments we are making to ensure our students have a world-class education. 

 

Advancing Academic Achievement:

Our top priority is to expand opportunities and access to high quality learning environments. This summer, thousands of students have engaged for the first time in:

  • Hands on Science Learning with the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History
  • Coding training with Education Training Research (ETR)
  • Performing arts experiences with West Theatre and Tandy Beal Dance Company
  • Expanded credit recovery completion by 867 secondary students
  • Newly established Freshmen Bridge Program at Watsonville High to support students’ transition to high school

 

For the upcoming school year, many innovative programs will be introduced to our schools:

  • Edward James Olmo’s award winning Latino Film Institute Youth Cinema Project at Starlight Elementary and Cesar Chavez Middle schools
  • El Sistema of Santa Cruz is providing music instruction at Radcliff Elementary.
  • Paso a Paso: Creciendo Juntos (Step by Step: Growing Together) to support early literacy for preschool through 3rd grade as well as for all children and families in our community
  • College and Career Centers are being supported at all three comprehensive high schools; Aptos High School will be included for the first time this year
  • VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) program expansion to include music offerings at all middle schools 

 

Investing in Human Resources:

Since February, PVUSD has been engaged in recruitment efforts to ensure students are taught by high quality staff. In addition we are:

  • Continuing to on-board new staff through a new teacher orientation
  • Launching a Human Resources site visitation with all new teachers to support a seamless transition into their teaching profession
  • Working diligently to reduce teacher vacancies to only approximately 20, many that will be filled before school starts
  • Offering “Voice and Choice” Professional Development days to support building of teacher capacity;   Teachers will be able to select their topic for professional learning days.
  • Implementing four benefits committee approved additional medical plans for employees.

 

Improving Learning Environments with Maintenance and Facilities:

We are dedicated to continually improving the learning environment for students.  This year, our students will be welcomed into many modernized and renovated facilities.  The District completed 50 modernization projects at 23 schools this summer. Some highlights include:

  • Aptos High School: lighted walkway and updated 21st Century Library
  • Mar Vista: new portables and replacement of fire alarm system
  • HA Hyde: new portables and communication center building
  • Mintie White: updated façade
  • Rolling Hills: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) laboratory

 

We believe our learning environments extend beyond the classroom, therefore we have:

  • Placed hot spots for Wi-Fi access on long-ride buses to facilitate digital literacy and student learning with Chromebooks
  • Began a pilot program to find green fuel alternatives for buses
  • Installed GPS on all buses
  • Implemented Z-pass system on buses to increase efficacy and safety of student loading and unloading


Serving the Whole Child:

PVUSD values a holistic approach based on meaningful relationships to achieve student success.  To accomplish this goal, the following initiatives are moving forward:

  • Lead counselor position to facilitate mobilization of resources to support wrap around services
  • New Socio-Emotional Counselors at alternative secondary sites to support our most fragile students
  • Professional development for teachers and staff on mindfulness
  • Positive behavior training at all sites to support innovative disciplinary practices
  • Nutrition enhancement through salad bars at all highs schools
  • California Thursdays for fresh meal choices at all high schools
  • Harvest of the Month program expanded to K-12
  • New pre-school assessment clinic and full time administrator at Special Education site Duncan Holbert

 

 

We will ensure student success through providing high quality learning environments, expanding parent and community partnerships, and maintaining quality staff.  We invite the community to visit our schools to see the exciting work that we are doing and the innovative programs we are implementing. We will continue to place students’ learning at the center of all decisions.

Eclipse Solar: ¡Disfrútelo con Seguridad!

 

On Monday, August 21st, there will be a Solar Eclipse occurring and a partial Eclipse will be viewable in our area between the hours of 9:01am and 11:37am, with the maximum eclipse at approximately 10:15 am. The eclipse will last a total of about 2 hours 36 minutes from start to finish.

 

Although this is a very exciting event to witness, we want to communicate the importance to all students, families, and staff of the potential safety risks.

 

It is never safe to look at any part of the sun directly--this includes during a partial or total eclipse. This can cause retinal burns and damage to the eye. Sunglasses are not sufficient protection for viewing the solar eclipse--only look directly at the eclipse using special-purpose solar filters, better known as “eclipse glasses” that state clearly their compliance to the international safety standard ISO 12312-2. If your eclipse glasses do not indicate safety standards - DO NOT USE THEM. For further safety information visit NASA’s Safety Webpage.

 

All PVUSD schools will be on inclement weather (rainy day) schedules during will be on an inclement weather (rainy-day) schedule during recess, PE, and/or breaks. Students will not be outside unsupervised without safety viewing equipment, unless there is a planned activity, appropriate supervision and approved eclipse-viewing glasses. The safest recommendation, especially for lower elementary grades, is to project a live feed indoors of the Eclipse to students. Live Feed:http://eclipse.stream.live/

 

Here is the Parent Letter that was sent home to all families in PVUSD.  For further information regarding safety and alternative viewing options, please visit our Solar Eclipse Resource Page.

 

***

 

 

El lunes, 21 de agosto, habrá un Eclipse Solar y un Eclipse parcial será visible en nuestra zona entre las 9:01 am y 11:37 am, con el eclipse máximo aproximadamente a las 10:15 am. El eclipse durará un total de aproximadamente 2 horas y 36 minutos desde el principio hasta el final.

 

Aunque este es un evento muy emocionante para testificar, queremos comunicar la importancia de todos los estudiantes, familias y personal de los posibles riesgos de seguridad.

 

Nunca es seguro mirar directamente a ninguna parte del sol - esto incluye durante un eclipse parcial o total. Esto puede causar quemaduras en la retina y daños en el ojo. Las gafas de sol no son una protección suficiente para ver el eclipse solar. Solo mira directamente al eclipse usando filtros solares de propósito especial, más conocidos como "gafas eclipses"  (special-purpose solar filtersque indican claramente su cumplimiento con la norma de seguridad internacional ISO 12312-2. Si sus gafas de eclipse no indican los estándares de seguridad - NO USARLO. Para obtener más información sobre seguridad, visite la página web de seguridad de la NASA (NASA’s Safety Webpage).

 

Todas las escuelas de PVUSD estarán en horarios de clima inclemente (día de lluvia) durante el tiempo de lluvia (día de lluvia) durante el recreo, PE y / o descansos. Los estudiantes no estarán fuera sin supervisión sin equipo de seguridad, a menos que haya una actividad planeada, supervisión apropiada y gafas de observación aprobadas. La recomendación más segura, especialmente para los grados elementales más bajos, es proyectar un alimento vivo dentro del Eclipse a los estudiantes. Live Feed: http://eclipse.stream.live/

 

Aquí está la Carta de Padres (Parent Letter) que fue enviada a casa a todas las familias en PVUSD. Para obtener más información sobre seguridad y opciones de visualización alternativas, visite nuestra página de recursos de Solar Eclipse (Solar Eclipse Resource Page).

I will continue to give you my unwavering commitment of leadership and dedication, in addition to a relentless focus on students, as we propel Pajaro Valley Unified School District towards even greater success.

The District also presented information to PVFT explaining the District’s June 2, 2017 proposal, the financial impact on PVFT members, and statements by PVFT regarding negotiations.

 

The District is not implementing a pay freeze as reported by PVFT.

 

The District explained that the June 2, 2017 proposal by the District included the following, none of which constitute a pay freeze.  (PVFT did not respond to the District’s Total Compensation Package)

  • A one-time (off-schedule) payment of $1600 for each PVFT member for 2016-17, paid as soon as possible after ratification.
  • Placing nurses on the same work year and same salary schedule as Psychologists, Speech and Language Pathologists and Program Specialists.
    • There are six nurses in the District.  As an example, a nurse on Step 26 Column 4 would experience a $24,954 pay increase by moving to the Psychologists’ salary schedule and work year.   
  • Adding six steps to the Adult Education salary schedule, thus increasing the income potential for all Adult Education teachers.
    • All 53 Adult Ed teachers would now have the opportunity to realize either an immediate increase in their annual income or will have the opportunity to have their salary increased over time with the addition of six additional steps.
    • For example, a teacher on Column 2 with twelve years in the District would move from step six (the current maximum on the Adult Ed schedule) to Step 12, resulting in an increase of $7,038.
  • Providing a Bilingual Stipend equal to a Master’s stipend ($1612 every year on-going) for all teachers teaching a class requiring a bilingual certification.
    • There are approximately 87 teachers with bilingual authorizations teaching in bilingual classrooms.
    • All of those bilingual teachers would receive an on-going yearly stipend of $1629 for as long as they are in a bilingual classroom.
  • Providing a Roving Teacher Stipend equal to a Master’s stipend ($1612 every year, on-going) for any VAPA teacher or other teacher who releases other teachers for release time.
    • Approximately 15 teachers are rovers who release other teachers to allow for release time.
    • All of the roving teachers would receive an on-going yearly stipend of $1629 for as long as they serve as roving teachers.
  • A signing bonus of $2500 to teachers in the areas of Mathematics and Special Education.
  • Improving the salary schedules by adding longevity steps for Assistant Teachers, Associate Teachers, Seasonal Assistant Teachers, Seasonal Associate Teachers, Migrant Head Start Associate Teachers, Children Center Teachers, Children Center Seasonal Teachers, Children Center Family Child Care Home Specialists, Migrant Seasonal Head Start Teachers and Migrant Seasonal Family Child Care Home Specialists.
    • There are about 118 bargaining unit members in the ECE department.
    • As an example, a Children’s Center Teacher at Column 3 with 20 years would realize a salary increase of $4,984.

Variances in the District’s budget projections as reported by PVFT are to a large extent the result of efforts by the District throughout the year to reduce expenditures using zero based budgeting and line-by-line analysis of expenditures.

 

The District is confident it can afford its June 2, 2017 proposal, even given the current projection for deficit spending in the coming years.

 

The District has been and remains open to bringing in a 3rd party, chosen by PVFT, to review the District budget.  To date, PVFT has declined to do so. 

 

The District looks forward to an on-going exchange of ideas, through negotiations, in the effort to continue providing a meaningful education for its students and a safe and healthy working environment for its staff.

The District presented a new proposal regarding Total Compensation which included the following items:

PVFT responded that they need to review the District’s Estimated Actual Budget in order to evaluate the District’s new proposal. 

The District asked PVFT to agree to an MOU on signing bonuses in order to allow immediate implementation.  PVFT declined. The District reiterated the importance of instituting the proposed signing bonus during the summer hiring season. 

The District also renewed its offer to bring in a third party of PVFT’s choosing to perform a full budget audit, and asked PVFT for the name their chosen third party.  PVFT declined to provide a name and stated that a third party review at this point in time would not be useful.

The Parties will meet again on June 27.

The Pajaro Valley Unified School District and the Pajaro Valley Federation of Teachers met on May 22, 2017, to continue negotiating regarding reopeners for the 2016-17 school year.

 

The District presented a revised proposal to PVFT regarding Total Compensation which included the following items, all of which would be effective July 1, 2017:

  • Nurses shall be placed on the same work year and same salary schedule as Psychologists.
  • Adding six steps to the Adult Education salary schedule.
  • Bilingual Stipend equal to a Master’s stipend
  • Roving Teacher Stipend equal to a Master’s stipend

  • Clarifying language regarding the Health and Welfare Benefits Committee

PVFT asked the District if the District was making a proposal to increase the salary schedule for 2017-18.  The District responded that the Parties had not yet “sunshined” negotiations for 2017-18, and so the District has not yet made a proposal for 2017-18. 

 

PVFT also asked the District if the District’s proposal was a “pay freeze”.  The District responded that there is no proposal for a “pay freeze”, and that in fact the proposal included pay increases for many PVFT members including Adult Education, ECE Teachers, Roving Teachers and Nurses.

 

PVFT and the District continued to discuss the following contract articles:  Leaves (Article XII); Adult Education (Article XVII); Retirement (Article XXIII).

 

The District looks forward to continued productive and collaborative bargaining with PVFT in order to reach agreement on all issues.  Future bargaining sessions are scheduled as follows:  June 2 and June 27.

Carta a los Padres y a la Comunidad de Mar Vista y Valencia

 

May 8, 2017

 

Dear Mar Vista & Valencia Parents and Community:

 

On Friday, May 5, 2017, in the late afternoon, we received a call from Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) regarding the arrest of a local man who had contact with local families and children. This individual was also employed at the After School Childhood Enrichment (ACE) Program at Mar Vista Elementary School managed by the County of Santa Cruz.  He was also a Cabrillo Early Education student who through the Cabrillo program (Ed180 class), observed teachers in action at Valencia Elementary.  Immediately, we began communication with the County and corresponding departments to ensure that we had as much information as possible.

 

At this point, we have no reason to believe that any of the allegations against him involve any of the children enrolled in the program or that were in care of district employees. The male employee was an extra help Parks and Recreation Cultural Worker assisting lead instructors since November 2014.  It is the practice and policy of the ACE program that no employee is alone with any student at any time. Additionally, through the Cabrillo program, college students must be with a supervising teacher at all times and at no point is allowed to be alone with elementary students. No county facility or district school has been searched and no other county employees have been interviewed as part of the investigation.  The individual was arrested and has been terminated.  He will be arraigned in Federal Court on Tuesday.

 

We take this situation very seriously and will continue to work closely with both the FBI and local agencies as the investigation continues.  We will provide all the information we receive to the parents and the community as more becomes available. To address any additional          questions, we will be holding a community forum with County Office of Education, Santa Cruz County Parks Department and the District on Thursday, May 11th at 7:00pm at Aptos High School Performing Arts Center. If you have any questions, please contact me at 831-786-2135.

 

If you have additional information about this case, or know of possible victims who were inappropriately photographed or touched, call:

FBI Special Agent Elizabeth Hadley - 415-553-7400

If you have concerns about the program, call:

Mary Anne James of the Santa Cruz County Office of Education - 831-466-5890

 

Sincerely,

 

Michelle Rodriguez, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools

 

 

8 de mayo de 2017

 

Estimados Mar Vista & Valencia Padres y Comunidad:

 

El viernes 5 de mayo de 2017, por la tarde, recibimos una llamada de la Oficina Federal de Investigaciones (FBI) con respecto a la detención de un hombre local que tenía contacto con familias y niños locales. Este individuo también fue empleado en el Programa de Enriquecimiento Infantil Después de la Escuela (ACE) en la Escuela Primaria Mar Vista administrada por el Condado de Santa Cruz. También fue alumno de Cabrillo Early Education quien a través del programa Cabrillo (clase Ed180), observó maestros en acción en la Escuela Primaria Valencia. Inmediatamente, comenzamos la comunicación con el Condado y los departamentos correspondientes para asegurar que tuviera tanta información como sea posible.

 

Por ahora, no tenemos razones para creer que ninguna de las acusaciones en su contra afecte a ninguno de los niños matriculados en el programa o que estaban a cargo de los empleados del distrito. El empleado masculino era una ayuda adicional para Parques y Recreación Trabajador Cultural para asistir a los instructores principales desde noviembre de 2014.  Es la práctica y la política del programa ACE que ningún empleado esté solo con cualquier estudiante en ningn momento. Además, a través del programa de Cabrillo, los estudiantes universitarios deben estar con un maestro de supervisión en todo momento y en ningún momento se les permite estar solos con los estudiantes de primaria. Ninguna instalación del condado o escuela del distrito ha sido buscada y ningún otro empleado del condado ha sido entrevistado como parte de la investigación. El individuo fue arrestado y ha sido despedido. El será procesado ante el Tribunal Federal el martes.

 

Tomamos esta situación muy en serio y continuaremos trabajando estrechamente con el FBI y las agencias locales mientras continúa la investigación. Proporcionaremos toda la información que recibamos a los padres y a la comunidad mientras esté disponible.  Para responder a cualquier pregunta adicional, tendremos un foro comunitario con la Oficina de Educación del Condado, el Departamento de Parques del Condado de Santa Cruz y el Distrito el jueves, 11 de mayo a las 7:00 pm en el Centro de Artes Escénicas Aptos (PAC). Si tiene alguna pregunta, póngase en contacto conmigo al 831-786-2135.

 

Si tiene información adicional sobre este caso, o si conoce posibles víctimas que fueron fotografiadas o tocadas de manera inapropiada, llame al:
Agente Especial del FBI Elizabeth Hadley - 415-553-7400


Si tiene alguna pregunta acerca del program, llame a:
Mary Anne James de la Oficina de Educación del Condado de Santa Cruz - 831-466-5890

 

Sinceramente,

 

Michelle Rodríguez, Ed.D.

Jim Mattson, Renaissance High School science teachers, is working on a project with his class to try and reintroduce and restore the population of the Pismo Clam off our shores. He and his students have built a salt water tank in the school’s greenhouse in a hope to grow the clams and then reintroduce them to the wild.

 

Seascape resort has been helping Mr. Mattson with this project by allowing him access to their beaches and they have agreed to do two fundraiser nights at their restaurants next week. Here is the flyer for the event.  We hope to see you there on April 26 or 27!

Dear Valencia Families and Community:

Thank you for your flexibility and support over the last several weeks. The safety of our students, parents, and staff is our number one priority. Since the initial closure of the primary entrance/exit of Valencia Elementary, we initiated a multi-agency response with the County, Sheriff’s Office, Fire, CHP and the District. We have been in daily and, within the last week, hourly communication with all agencies to ensure the safety of our students. 

 

The County has been working with both state and federal agencies on solutions to allow additional crossings. The District will support and assist the County in anything we can do. Since the closure of Valencia Road on Friday, we have identified two alternate locations, Aptos High School and Cabrillo College, for Valencia Elementary in the event we do not have safe access to the site for an extended period of time. 

 

Over the weekend, the County conducted an evaluation of Valencia Road and determined it was accessible to buses and car traffic. On Monday morning, PVUSD’s Director and trainers from the Transportation Department evaluated the road and determined the small buses were safe to pass. In addition, we had two additional evaluations occur with our Department of Maintenance and Operations and the CHP. All parties concluded that Valencia Road was safe for travel.

 

As an added measure of precaution, we used and will continue to use small buses to shuttle students into the school site. Students will be picked up at their regular time in the large buses and taken to Aptos Junior High School where they will then be placed on smaller shuttle buses. Parents who do not wish to drive the road due to traffic may also use the shuttle service by going to Aptos Junior at 7:15 a.m. Due to the use of the shuttles, drop- off times were delayed. We have taken additional steps to align the times closer to regular drop-off times for the future.

 

The County installed two controlled intersections for one-lane travel. We requested support from CHP and the Sheriff’s Office during peak school hours to ensure constant evaluation of the road. Since they cannot sustain this support for an extended period, we have contracted with Bay Area Traffic Solutions (BATS) who will start on Wednesday. They will be providing traffic control from 7:15am to 3:00pm. They will allow for more controlled traffic flow at the stop signs to reduce congestion.

 

We are preparing for the next set of storms. We will monitor the conditions of the road on a constant basis. If the conditions of the road change or an evaluation determines the road is not accessible, we will move the students to the alternate sites. Thank you for your support as we continue to make the safety of the students our top priority. 

 

Sincerely,
Michelle Rodriguez, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools

Estimada Comunidad y Familia de Valencia:

 

Gracias por su flexibilidad y apoyo a lo largo de las últimas semanas. La seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, padres, y el personal es nuestra prioridad número uno. Desde el cierre inicial de la entrada / salida de la escuela Valencia, se inició una respuesta de varias agencias con el Condado, Oficina del Sheriff, Bomberos, CHP y el Distrito. Hemos estado en comunicación por hora con todos los organismos para garantizar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes.

 

El Condado ha estado trabajando con agencias estatales y federales en las soluciones para permitir cruces adicionales. El Distrito apoyará y ayudará al Condado en algo que podemos hacer.Desde el cierre de la carretera de Valencia el viernes, hemos identificado dos ubicaciones alternativas, la Escuela Secundaria Aptos y Cabrillo College, en el caso de que no tengamos acceso seguro al sitio por un período prolongado de tiempo.

 

El fin de semana, el Condado realizó una evaluación de Valencia Road y determinó

que era accesible a los autobuses y el tráfico de automóviles. El lunes por la mañana, Director de PVUSD Departamento de Transporte evaluaron la carretera y determinaron los pequeños autobuses eran suficiente para pasar. Además, tuvimos dos evaluaciones adicionales se producen con nuestro Departamento de Operaciones y Mantenimiento y el CHP. Todos llegaron a la conclusión que el camino a Valencia era seguro para viajar.

 

Como una medida adicional de precaución, hemos utilizado y continuaremos usando pequeños autobuses de transporte a los estudiantes de la escuela. Los estudiantes serán recogidos en su tiempo regular en los grandes autobuses y llevados a Aptos Junior High School donde luego serán colocados en más autobuses pequeños.Los padres que no desean conducir la carretera debido al tráfico también pueden utilizar este servicio de transporte por ir a Aptos junior a las 7:15 am Debido a la utilización de las lanzaderas.  Hemos tomado medidas adicionales para alinear los tiempos más cercanos a los regulares para el futuro.

 

El Condado instalo dos intersecciones controladas para los viajes de un solo carril. Habíamos solicitado el apoyo de la Oficina del Sheriff durante el horario escolar pico para asegurar una constante evaluación de la carretera. Ya que no pueden sostener este apoyo por un período prolongado, hemos contratado con área de la bahía de tráfico Soluciones (MTD) que comenzarán el miércoles. Ellos estarán proporcionando el control del tráfico de 7:15 am a 3:00 pm. Nos estamos preparando para la siguiente serie de tormentas. Haremos un seguimiento de las condiciones de la carretera sobre una base constante. Si las condiciones de la carretera o el cambio de una evaluación determina el camino no es accesible, nos trasladaremos los estudiantes a los sitios alternativos. Gracias por su apoyo mientras continuamos haciendo de la seguridad de los estudiantes de nuestra máxima prioridad.

 

Sinceramente,

 

Michelle Rodríguez, Doctor en Educación

PVUSD adopta resolución en apoyo de estudiantes y familias inmigrantes

 

In light of the current state of concern regarding uncertainty on federal immigration policy, staff members and community members collaborated to create the attached resolution in support of immigrant students and families.  

 

The resolution restates PVUSD's commitment to support DREAM Act students through Resolution #11-12-20 and further outlines the importance of public schools to treat all people with respect and dignity, and that diversity is an asset in our community.  PVUSD will not support federal efforts to create a registry based on any protected characteristics of our students and families and will continue to advocate for their rights.  

  

PVUSD would like to thank staff member Maria Elena Valenzuela from Pajaro Valley High School, Ramiro Medrano from Pajaro Middle School, and Doug Keegan of Immigration Project for their thoughtful collaboration in creating this resolution.  

 

A la luz del estado actual de preocupación por la incertidumbre sobre la política federal de inmigración, los miembros del personal y los miembros de la comunidad colaboraron para crear la resolución adjunta en apoyo de los estudiantes y familias inmigrantes.

 

La resolución reafirma el compromiso de PVUSD de apoyar a los estudiantes de la Ley DREAM mediante la Resolución # 11-12-20 y resalta la importancia de las escuelas públicas para tratar a todas las personas con respeto y dignidad y que la diversidad es una ventaja en nuestra comunidad. PVUSD no apoyará los esfuerzos federales para crear un registro basado en las características protegidas de nuestros estudiantes y familias y continuará abogando por sus derechos.

 

PVUSD agradece a la miembro del personal Maria Elena Valenzuela de la Escuela Preparatoria Pajaro Valley, a Ramiro Medrano de la Escuela Intermedia Pajaro y a Doug Keegan del Proyecto de Inmigración por su colaboración en la creación de esta resolución.

Over the last month police have been involved in five LSD related incidents. One person has died and four others experienced serious complications endangering them and their friends and family. We ask you to seriously consider the risks of using LSD or any drug. There are no safe drugs. Talk to your parents, talk to an adult you trust and talk to one another. Those that care about you will tell you the truth. Drugs, like LSD, can ruin the health and happiness you want. If you have questions, message us on Facebook or call 831-471-1121 to speak to a Deputy. We, like many in this county, want to see you succeed and believe in your potential!

 

Parents/Guardians/Teachers/Mentors:
We noticed this trend with LSD unfortunately on November 19th following the death of Luke Smith. On December 12th California Highway Patrol Officers fought with a man on Highway 17 after he was reported to have ingested LSD. On December 14th the Sheriff’s Office received a report of a minor having a seizure after ingesting liquid LSD which had been placed on a popsicle. The young lady was rushed to a hospital for treatment and nearly died.
Over the weekend the Sheriff’s Office responded to two additional reports of people experiencing life threatening reactions to reported LSD. On December 16th a minor was said to have taken LSD and experienced a bad reaction in a vehicle with his friends. The affectedyoung man who was riding in the back seat nearly caused the vehicle to crash. After the vehicle stopped he ran into the forest on a very cold night. Luckily he did not become injured and eventually walked out on his own. On December 19th a young man was reported to have taken LSD which was placed on a mint. This person experienced a reaction causing him to act erratically. He had to be physically restrained by his brother until law enforcement arrived.

 

Unfortunately in all but the case of the young girl, those experiencing a reaction to the LSD have become violent and some have attacked their family members. We are asking parents and mentors to help us fight this issue by talking to your young people. We are actively searching for those responsible for bringing this and other dangerous drugs into our county. We know there is more LSD and other drugs out there we just hope though our partnership we can prevent your child from falling victim. We are here to help you and your family and should you have any questions please feel free to message us on Facebook or call 831-471-1121 to speak to a Deputy. Other resources can be found at the County website; www.recoverywave.com
We believe our collective effort can have an effect on this issue and help safeguard the brightfutures we all hope for our children.

Staff and Student Support/Apoyo al Personal y Estudiantes

 

To:  PVUSD Leadership

Fr: Dr. Michelle Rodriguez, PVUSD Superintendent

      Erica Padilla Chavez, PVPSA CEO

 

Dear PVUSD Leadership,

 

We recognize that many students may be experiencing emotional reactions or heightened anxiety as a result of the recent national elections.  In an effort to support students and the school district community, we would like to offer some suggestions in supporting students who are struggling with fear and uncertainty.

 

First, be mindful of the emotional contagion currently involving our nation, communities and schools.  Students and families are looking for an emotional outlet for emotions and seeking a means of reassurance and comfort.  Please embrace and validate their feelings and sentiments.  Practice good listening and be mindful of your remarks and body language.

 

Second, remind the student that he/she is surrounded by a community of care and support that will work arduously to ensure their success.  They are not alone, for an entire community of people such as yourselves are there to support them. 

 

Lastly, if a student has a current relationship with a support person, therapist or counselor, bring that to their attention and encourage your students to talk with their counselor. For those students who do not have a designated counselor, it is advisable to inquire who the Social-Emotional or PVPSA counselor is at your site, and seek available service and resources.  In the case that you need PVPSA counseling support for situations you cannot manage, please feel free to call PVPSA at

831-728-5808 and inform staff that you need support in addressing issues related to this situation that are beyond your capacity.

 

Remember to take care of yourself and to lean on each other as needed.

Reconocemos que muchos estudiantes pueden estar experimentando reacciones emocionales o ansiedad aumentada como resultado de la reciente elección nacional.  En este esfuerzo de apoyar a los estudiantes y la comunidad escolar, nos gustaría ofrecer algunas sugerencias para el apoyo a los estudiantes que están luchando con el miedo y la incertidumbre. 

 

En primer lugar, hay que estar consciente del contagio emocional en el que actualmente está involucrado nuestro pais, las comunidades y escuelas.   Los estudiantes y familias están en busca de una forma de expresar sus emociones y buscan un medio de tranquilidad y consuelo.  Por favor, acójalos y validen sus emociones y sentimientos.  Practiquemos escuchar bien y estemos atentos a sus comentarios y lenguaje corporal.

 

En segundo lugar, recuérdeles  que él o ella están rodeados por una comunidad de apoyo a quien le importa y trabajará arduamente para garantizar su éxito.  No están solos porque toda una comunidad de personas como ustedes están ahí para apoyarlos. 

 

Por último, si un estudiante tiene una relación con una persona de apoyo, terapeuta o consejero, recuérdeselo y anímelos a hablar con su consejero.  Para aquellos estudiantes que no tienen un consejero asignado, es aconsejable investigar quién es el consejero socio-emocional o consejeros de PVPSA en su escuela y busque servicios o recursos disponibles.  En caso que usted necesite apoyo de consejería de PVPSA para situaciones que no puede manejar, siéntase libre de llamar a PVPSA al  831-728-5808 e informar a la persona que necesita apoyo en dirigir asuntos que están más allá de su capacidad.

 

Recuerde de cuidarse y apoyarse unos a otros según sea necesario.

Capacitación de Jovenes y Familias en Nuestra Comunidad con Jerry Tello

 

PVPSA, PVUSD and WPD have joined together to plan and offer the Nov 5th “Empowering Youth & Families in Our Community”.  This stems out of the Youth Violence Prevention Task Force that has been an ongoing force in our community to eradicate violence in all forms from our schools, homes and community. The conference hopes to offer youth, parents and community members the information and resources which can be used to create more peaceful environments. We are honored to have Jerry Tello as the keynote speaker. Mr. Tello is an internationally recognized expert in the areas of fatherhood, family strengthening, community peace and mobilization and culturally based violence prevention/intervention issues.

 

In addition, the 23rd Annual Watsonville Peace & Unity March will be conducted on the same day and will begin the march at Watsonville High School at 2:10PM, so that conference participants can join the march if they wish to.

 

PVPSA, PVUSD y WPD se han unido para planificar y ofrecer el 5 de Noviembre "Capacitación de los jóvenes y familias de nuestra comunidad".

La conferencia espera ofrecer a jóvenes, padres y miembros de la comunidad la información y recursos que pueden ser utilizados para crear ambientes más tranquilos. Estamos honrados de tener a Jerry Tello como el orador principal.
