Book Fair is Coming
By Jennifer Vierra   
The Scholastic Book Fair will arrive on May 9th and will begin first thing May 10th. The Book Fair will be open before school, lunchtime, and after school May 10th through May 13th and during Open House on the 12th. Our sales goal for the book fair is $2950 (before tax) so that we may receive 25% of the total sales in CASH! The cash will then be used to purchase library books and supplies next year. We will be adding an online component to our Book Fair this year. Everyone, including family and friends who can’t attend the Book Fair, will be able to buy books online starting May 4th, thus adding to our sales. The URL listed below will take you to our school's homepage and the online shopping. You will need to copy and paste it into your browser to be able to view it. If you have any questions about any of this, please see Mrs. Bullock in the Library. All online orders will be shipped to the school 7 to 10 days after the online closing date of May 17th. Thank you for supporting our school library. http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/clearcreekelemsch
 
Principal's News May
By Scott Lay   

On behalf of the Clear Creek School Site Council, I would like to thank all of you who turned in the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) survey. We had a 38% return rate. This, combined with 100% of our student surveys turned in, are immensely helpful in planning for the next school year.

Among the topics that parents and students would like to see added to our curriculum or campus were faster internet service, Spanish language classes, more help with academics, and more information on the State Standards (formerly known as Common Core). These are great suggestions and here are the plans. We are actually waiting on AT&T to finish our fiber optic internet connection which will increase our speed tenfold. We did have an “Introduction to Spanish” web based class offered by Mrs. Kauffman to the 6th-8th graders this year. Now we are trying to move that down to lower grades for next school year. We will also look to see how we can enhance our afterschool homework club and provide more information on the Common Core Standards as it relates to your child’s school work. If you have any questions, please call me or stop by the office.

California Department of Education

The California Department of Education (“CDE”) is currently engaged in litigation with two non-profit associations comprised of parents and guardians of children with disabilities.  The plaintiffs in that litigation have requested numerous documents, as well as student data collected and stored by CDE, which may include personally identifiable student information. 

To comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), CDE has been ordered, among other things, to inform parents and students of the disclosure of such information.  CDE has requested that school districts and SELPAs post the following link to CDE’s website: http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase.  The link provides a Notice and Objection form to allow parents to object, by April 1, 2016, to the disclosure of personally identifiable information related to their children.

Please understand that the district is not a party to the litigation and is not required to disclose any student information, nor does it intend to do so.  For more information, please contact CDE directly at (916) 319-0800.
