Sylvan Middle School's facility is in need of significant upgrade or replacement. Here's the latest developments:
Staff are spending time this summer analyzing input collected from community members in the spring. Staff hope to hold an additional community meeting in late August or early September before issuing their recommendations for community feedback and Board consideration.
At this time, none of the discussed recommendations have been eliminated from consideration.
Feedback and the Q&A from the April community brainstorming session has been posted.
The Board of Education is expected to take action on any recommendation in late October or November. No changes will occur prior to the 2015-16 school year.
Big changes are underway in your students’ classrooms: 46 states across the country have adopted key academic standards that will replace current California standards in English/language arts and math.
The goal of the rigorous Common Core State Standards is to instill the 21st century, higher-thinking skills that prepare all students for college and their careers - as well as to succeed in a global economy and society.
