New SV Teachers 2016-17
Great Start to the 2016-17 School Year
 
On Tuesday, August 23rd, SVUSD held our annual Welcome Back Breakfast for our employees. The Scotts Valley Rotary Club sponsored this breakfast and Scotts Valley Rotary President Rosanna Herrera also presented some discretionary money to each school site to use for their respective needs. Thank you Scotts Valley Rotary! This event was attended by several members of the community there to show appreciation and support to the teachers and staff for all they do to educate the students in our schools! Palace Arts and Business With Pleasure were there to provide “goody bags” for staff. President of the Scotts Valley Education Foundation (SVEF), Derek Timm, greeted the teachers and SVEF is again providing funds to support our libraries. SVUSD is greatly appreciative of the ongoing support from SVEF. We were fortunate to also have in attendance, City Manager, Jenny Haruyama, Police Chief Weiss, and his team, City Council members Randy Johnson, Stephanie Aguilar, Dene Bustichi, and Mayor, Donna Lind. Also present were SV Chamber Vice President Steve Hoversten and Executive Director, Danny Reber. There were several other community members present to show their support to the District. We were excited to introduce our new Scotts Valley Unified employees joining our team this year. SVUSD Board of Trustees Michael Shulman, Sue Roth, and Kim Schultz joined us in acknowledging those achieving permanent status, and also recognized employees who have been with us 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and even 30 years! Mr. Paul Sampson, who teaches at SV Middle School, celebrated his 30 years in the district! Scotts Valley Unified School District is looking forward to another great year!

Mitigated Negative Declaration Adopted by the Board on August 23, 2016

The Scotts Valley Unified School District has submitted the architectural plans for the Middle School Reconstruction project to the Division of State Architect for review and approval.  As part of this process the District must complete an Initial Study to determine whether the proposed project may have a significant adverse effect on the environment in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

The District completed the Initial Study/draft Mitigated Negative Declaration and posted the document June 8, 2016 publicly for a period of 30 days to receive any comments up to July 8, 2016.

At the August 23, 2016 meeting, the School Board held a public hearing to receive any additional comments and then voted to adopt the Mitigated Negative Declaration which in summary states that the Scotts Valley Middle School Reconstruction project will not have a significant effect on the environment based on implementation of the required mitigation measures, and therefore, an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is not required.

The adopted Mitigated Negative Declaration will be filed with the County of Santa Cruz for an additional 30 day period in accordance with the Public Resources Code.  After the 30 day period, the Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration will sent to the California Department of Education as part of the application for state funding.

Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts, county offices of education and charter schools are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), beginning on July 1, 2014.

The LCAP is required to identify annual goals, specific actions, and measure progress for student subgroups across multiple performance indicators, including student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. School districts are required to obtain parent and public input in developing, revising, and updating LCAPs.

 

The academic priorities must be aligned to the district's spending plan. County superintendents must review school district LCAPs and ensure alignment of projected spending, services, and goals. County Offices of Education are required to provide technical assistance when they disapprove an LCAP. The state Superintendent of Public Instruction may intervene if a school district fails to show improvement across multiple subgroups in three out of four consecutive years.
