Here are a few highlights from the Sept. 26 board meeting (the full agenda packet is available):
Board hears update on summer learning
Staff highlighted the innovative programs and opportunities provided to students this past summer. Based on needs assessments, schools were provided local control to determine what actions would best meet the needs of their students. Through collaboration with a variety of educational and community partners, high-interest learning opportunities for students across the district were developed. The focus of these programs was academic intervention through enrichment with added support for social and emotional needs. Supplemental funding including the Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELO) grant, Title I federal funds, and state funding, provided the resources to over 8,316 K-12 grade students this summer.
Staff provides update on the work of the Professional Learning and Innovation team
The Professional Learning and Innovation (PLI) department provided an update about their work and current priorities. In response to the current academic performance of San Juan Unified students, the PLI department is prioritizing professional learning in mathematics, reading, and inclusive practices. The team continues to collect data, partner more strategically with sites and departments and focus on family and community engagement.
