Inclusions Counts Parent Listening Session - Nov 17

The San Carlos Elementary School District is partnering with Inclusion Counts to assess our current state of diversity, equity and racial-justice. In order to ensure our priorities, goals and actions related to anti-racism in our community are reflective of our diverse community voices, we’re taking time to hear from members of our community - staff, students and families.

On Tuesday, November 17 we invite parents to participate in a Community Listening Session/ Group Interview with our consultants at Inclusion Counts. During this session, you will be asked to share about your experience at San Carlos Elementary School District - and, if applicable, how you/ your family has been affected by racism, bias or intolerance. Our friends at Inclusion Counts have specifically asked to host these sessions within affinity groups.

Please RSVP by Friday, November 13.

Join the Team Kid Movement!

This past summer, SCEF and school PTA leaders decided to collaborate to raise much-needed support for our students. Working together, we can create the best experience possible for our eager students and outstanding teachers. The TeamKid campaign is a result of this cooperation. Through your two-fold commitment to SCEF and PTA, you’ll be supporting the local-level funding that bridges the gap between the needs of San Carlos Schools, and our CA state funding. Your school will benefit from your contribution to PTA as a donor, member, and advocate. As always, your school will continue to have important programs and people funded by the grant from SCEF. Join TeamKid by making your PTA donation this fall and planning your SCEF donation for a date that works best for your family.

Read the Superintendent's October Community Update

Read the SCSD Return to School Planning Update. During last Thursday’s Board meeting on October 8, Trustees heard from our Principals about the next steps we are ready to take to prepare for in-person learning on campus. We are taking a measured, incremental approach to preparing for in-person learning to ensure the safety of staff and students, and continue with daily engagement with teachers. The first step was approving Phase 1 of our draft Return To School Procedure Plan. Visit the Superintendent's page to see the board meeting video and the slide presentation.
