The mission of San Lorenzo Unified School District is to work together with parents and the community to develop critical and creative thinkers who are knowledgeable, responsible, caring participants who contribute to a changing world.

Newsletter from Superintendent Brill

April, 2014

Dear Teachers, Support Staff, Parents and Community Members,

As you know, the San Lorenzo Unified School District is in the midst of developing a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), as required by the State of California.  With tremendous input from stakeholders in the community, we have established four strategic priorities to ensure all students graduate from high school prepared for success in college and career. 

  1. Student Achievement: The San Lorenzo Unified School District will ensure equitable learning outcomes for all students
  2. Student Engagement: The San Lorenzo Unified School District will nurture students to become  committed, caring and connected
  3. Basic Services: The San Lorenzo Unified School District will provide high quality services, schools, and staff
  4. Parent Involvement: The San Lorenzo Unified School District will cultivate meaningful partnerships and authentic family engagement

In order to achieve more equitable and positive outcomes for all students (including underserved populations such as English language learners, students in families with low income, Foster children, homeless children, African American, Latino/Hispanic and students with disabilities), we are expected to align our resources and practices to realize common goals.

After gathering input about what we should start doing, continue doing, and stop doing, we have generated a list of proposed strategic investments.  Please take the time to complete the online survey (also available in hard copy in English, Spanish, and Chinese at all school sites) to share your beliefs about how we can have the greatest impact on student achievement and college/career readiness.  Additionally, please be sure your voices are heard at the following engagement meetings:

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

On January 9th, over 100 SLZUSD directors, administrators, teachers, and community partners started the new year by learning more about Restorative Practices (RP). The aim of Restorative Practices is to develop community and to manage conflict and tensions by building relationships and repairing harm. To learn more, click here.  Led by Amos Clifford of The Center of Restorative Process, this day was a unique and powerful experience. Sitting together in a large circle, participants actively participated in a variety of restorative exercises including an appreciative inquiry where volunteers used a structured process to publicly thank and appreciate someone else in the group. The tone of the day was overwhelmingly positive and created a feeling of care and closeness that will in turn radiate out and impact our larger school community. Here is what people are saying about the day:

 “I thought the last training we had was the best ever. We used to use classroom circles years ago and this will help us to start them again.” 
– Elementary principal

“This is exactly where we should be spending more professional development time with teachers and staff.”

 “The day helped me form a closer tie with my administrator and colleagues.”

 “I now have a powerful tool to use in the classroom to resolve conflicts at the classroom level, build community, and share positive feelings about one another.”
