From CMHS Girl's Tennis Co-Captain Amber Lee:

 

The Mustangs came out of the gate strong with a 6-0 first round.  The energy did not stop as they continued to sweep every set!  The match ended with a thrilling set between Orange's Number Two Singles and Costa Mesa's Number One Singles player Leslie Delgado.  With two sets under her belt and trailing 3-4 in her third and final set, Delgado demonstrated her grit and heart of champion pulling ahead and eventually winning the final three games and set 7-5!  Congrats to these amazing girls!  CMHS Girls' Tennis is now 12-2 on the season and 7-0 in league.

 

Please come out and show your Mesa spirit as we take on Calvary Chapel this Thursday at home at 3:15pm.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District

In the interest of keeping the community informed, please see below for a brief review of a few items on the upcoming Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) Board Meeting.          

The NMUSD Board of Education meeting agenda is posted online the Friday prior to the meeting. Click the following link to view the full NMUSD Board of Education meeting agenda.

Board Meeting Agenda Highlights:

Report

12.a. Report on Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Test Scores 

Consent Calendar

16.a.4. Aprove Authorization to Advertise and Award Bid #119-18 Bleachers for Sports Field Project – Corona del Mar High School On October 24, 2017, the Board of Education adopted Resolution No. 21-10-17 certifying the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and approved the Corona del Mar Middle and High School Sports Fields Project, Option B.

16.b.5. Approve Agreement Between Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County, Simon Foundation and Newport-Mesa Unified School District for the Workplace Mentoring Program for Estancia and Costa Mesa High Schools for the 2018 - 2019 School Year. Big Brothers Big Sisters in partnership with the Simon Family Foundation will be providing the Workplace Mentoring program to a separate cohort of current Simon Scholars at Estancia and Costa Mesa High Schools. Each Simon Scholar will be paired with positive, caring, screened and trained adult corporate mentors through the tiered mentoring system all facilitated through Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Discussion/Action Calendar

17.a. Approve the Early Commitment to College Program Partnership Agreement with the Coast Community College District. Coast Community College District (CCD) will offer active assistance to high school students enrolled in NMUSD and their families in a tuition-free first year of higher education at CCCD Colleges.

17.b. Authorize the Superintendent or Designee to Negotiate Agreements with the City of Costa Mesa and Newport-Mesa Unified School District for the Improvement, Maintenance and Operation of the Athletic Fields and Related Recreational Facilities at Kaiser Elementary and Davis Magnet Schools.

17.c. Adopt Resolution 08-10-18 in Support of Week of the School Administrator, October 8-14, 2018. NMUSD recognizes the important role of site administrators in leading effective instructional programs that serve students and parents. These leaders are supported by a network of dedicated administrative professionals, including special education and adult education leaders, curriculum experts, school business officials and classified educational leaders, among many others. 

Board Meeting Overview

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.

  • Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
  • Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Logo
Students in Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) continue to show growth in the statewide English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics standards. Students in grades three through eight and grade 11 take the statewide Smarter Balanced Assessments.

NMUSD students remain above Orange County and California averages overall in both ELA and mathematics. 

The Smarter Balanced Assessments are computer adaptive tests that adjust the difficulty of the test items based on how a test taker responds. This provides a more precise measure of student performance.

The Smarter Balanced Assessments, now in their fourth year, show an increase of nearly six percentage points in NMUSD students having met or exceeded ELA standards, and an increase of five percentage points in students having met or exceeded math standards, when compared to the 2015 baseline assessments.

From 2017 to 2018 all elementary grades experienced growth in ELA with third, fourth, and seventh grades showing the most significant growth. Specifically, third grade demonstrated double-digit growth from 2015 baseline in both ELA and math, which is a strong reflection of NMUSD’s focused efforts in the primary grades.

English Learners in grades three through six showed four percentage point growth in English Language Arts from 2017 to 2018, which is encouraging as NMUSD schools are increasing focus on English Language Development.

Statewide Assessment Highlights:

ELA Growth Chart

  • 11 schools show double digit growth in ELA
    • Adams Elementary
    • California Elementary
    • College Park Elementary
    • Ensign Intermediate
    • Killybrooke Elementary
    • Newport Heights Elementary
    • Paularino Elementary
    • Pomona Elementary
    • Rea Elementary
    • Sonora Elementary
    • Whittier Elementary

Math Growth Chart

  • 8 schools show double digit growth in mathematics
    • Adams Elementary
    • Eastbluff Elementary
    • Ensign Intermediate
    • Kaiser Elementary
    • Killybrooke Elementary
    • Newport Heights Elementary
    • Paularino Elementary
    • Sonora Elementary
  • 6 schools show double digit growth in both ELA and mathematics
    • Adams Elementary
    • Ensign Intermediate
    • Killybrooke Elementary
    • Newport Heights Elementary
    • Paularino Elementary
    • Sonora Elementary

Our district continues to focus on providing classroom intervention systems to support differentiation of instruction. Intervention staff were added to better allow teachers to provide targeted support to struggling students and additional enrichment opportunities for high achieving students.

In the 2017 to 2018 school year, new ELA instructional materials for transitional kindergarten (TK) through sixth grade, and new mathematics instructional materials for TK through fifth grade were adopted. This transition was supported with ongoing professional development for instructional staff to better support students. 

“While we are never satisfied until all students meet proficiency standards, we are pleased to see continuous growth overall, particularly in the first year of implementation of two new adoptions at the elementary level,” said Deputy Superintendent Russell Lee-Sung.

“Our focus on foundational skills, interventions, and building a cohesive instructional program from TK to 12th grade will continue to be at the forefront of our collective efforts to support the success of each student,” said Lee-Sung.

Individual student 2018 score reports were mailed to parents in late July 2018. The NMUSD Smarter Balanced testing window for 2019 is March 18 – June 14, 2019.

While statewide assessments provide valuable information about overall student progress and areas for improvement, they do not provide a holistic view of student achievement. The California School Dashboard provides a more detailed view of performance, based on multiple factors, beyond state testing results. These factors include graduation rates, suspension rates, chronic absenteeism and college and career readiness, as well as local indicators such as implementation of academic standards, parent engagement and the local climate survey.

From CMHS Varsity Girls' Tennis Co-Captain Amber Lee:

 

With much anticipation heading into the match with both teams having momentum and winning streaks, our Mustangs defeated the Eagles at Estancia 16-2 in their first of two league matches this season.  Mesa's doubles' teams swept all of their matches as well as Leslie Delgado coming through with the sweep at #1 singles. 

 

Last year Estancia won both of their matches vs. Mesa.  This Mesa team is progressing and improving each and every day and today's win marks the 9th consecutive match improving the overall record to 10-2 and 5-0 in league at the half-way point of the season.  The 10 wins doubles the amount of all of last season's wins. 

 

JV began their match with a 0-6 deficit and fought hard in a dominant 11-7 win!  Congrats all!!!

 

CMHS plays away at Santa Ana High School on Thursday, October 4th at 3:15pm.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Logo

In our continued effort to improve safety on our campuses, we would like to inform you about a few safety updates throughout Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD). For a more robust look into school safety, we encourage you to visit the NMUSD Safety Webpage at www.nmusd.us/SchoolSafety.  

School Resource Officers (SRO):

We partner with the Costa Mesa and Newport Beach Police Departments to provide School Resource Officers (SRO), which are local law enforcement officers who serve our schools and district facilities. We are in discussions to increase the number of SROs and increase their presence at elementary schools.

Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Support:

Our District hired four additional school psychologists and a coordinator of student services to provide enhanced services in the areas of student social, emotional, and behavioral  well-being.

Our district recently hired two additional school social workers and four additional school psychologists to share in the delivery of psychological support services, conduct risk and threat assessments, and participate on the districts Crisis Response Team.

We have a threat assessment processes and will be implementing a team threat assessment model consistent with the recommendations of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other community agencies. This will focus on the identification and response to potential threats on our school campuses.

We continue to develop and will implement a restorative culture plan, where students are held accountable and provided support throughout all our schools, as well provide ongoing staff training in the areas of school discipline.

Suicide prevention, identification, and response training also will continue, along with a focus to support Positive Behavior and Intervention Systems to enhance school climate and promote a positive school culture.

Physical Environment:

NMUSD staff, in conjunction with our district’s security consultant, fencing expert, and school site administration conducted physical site safety reviews at each of our schools to determine potential enhancements to improve physical school security.

As part of this review, some physical security and safety enhancements will begin construction in the 2018/19 school year. Please read the School Fencing (August 2018) news Item for more information.

Three schools (Mariners, Newport Heights, and Wilson elementary schools) completed fencing and front office reconfiguration in summer 2018 to better manage access to the campus.

Visitor Check-in Process:

Beginning in the 2018/19 school year, all visitors to school and district properties will be required to show a valid photo identification when requesting access to the site. Our district is using the Raptor Visitor Management System at every school site to track visitors and volunteers during the school day. Read more about this in the Raptor Visitor Management news item.

Emergency Communication System: Titan

Beginning in the 2018/19 school year, NMUSD will use the Titan Emergency Communication System as the Emergency Communication System district wide. Titan will allow staff to provide emergency information and updates via text, email, phone, and mobile application alerts. Contact your school to learn more about the emergency communication system.

In the interest of keeping the community informed, please see below for a brief review of a few items on the upcoming Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) Board Meeting.      

The NMUSD Board of Education meeting agenda is posted online the Friday prior to the meeting. Click the following link to view the full NMUSD Board of Education meeting agenda.

Board Meeting Agenda Highlights:

10. Introduction of New Staff      

Report

13.a. Report on Secondary Summer Language Academy– For the past two years, NMUSD has run a summer language program in partnership with California State University, Fullerton.

13.a. Report on Elementary Summer Engineering and Music Programs - Education Services will report on the K-6 Summer Engineering and Music programs.

Consent Calendar

16.d.3. Approve the Memorandum of Understanding between NMUSD and Project Hope Alliance – Project Hope Alliance, a family stability program that seeks to find and maintain secure housing for vulnerable children and their guardians, will expand their services to students at Costa Mesa High School.

Discussion/Action Calendar

18.b. Authorize to Negotiate and Award Estancia High School Aquatic Center Project - To maintain the schedule for completion of this project by February 2020, it is requested that the Board of Education authorize the district’s Assistant Superintendent, Chief Operating Officer to negotiate and award contracts to Westberg + White Architects and Planners and California Waters for the Estancia High School Aquatic Center Project.

18.d. First Reading and Adoption of Modifications to Board Policy – It is recommended that the Board of Education take the recommendation of the Board's policy editing team to conduct this first reading, waive the second reading, and adopt the revisions to the following policies which are a result of changes in law, regulations, or court decisions.

  • BP 0420.4 - Charter Schools
  • BP 1325 - Advertising and Promotion
  • BP 4119.21/4219.21/4319.21 - Professional Standards
  • BP 5113.1 - Chronic Absence and Truancy

Board Meeting Overview

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.

  • Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
  • Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Logo

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In an effort to strengthen campus safety at all of our schools, Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System. The Raptor system will allow us to better track and screen all of our visitors on campus.

Upon entering any NMUSD school, visitors will be asked to present identification such as a driver’s license, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. If a parent or guardian for any reason does not have US government-issued identification, school staff can use alternate forms of identification and manually enter the visitor’s name into the Raptor system. The Raptor system will also check to ensure that registered sexual offenders are not entering our school campuses without our knowledge for improved student safety. 

We recognize that privacy and confidentiality are important to our visitors, which is why we want to emphasize that the Raptor system only checks the visitor's name and date of birth for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. The registered sex offender database is the only official database checked by the Raptor system. No other data from the identification card is gathered or recorded. The information is not shared with any outside agency.

Once entry is approved, the Raptor system will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit. A visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off or pick up items in the front office. 

The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority and the Raptor system allows us to quickly identify visitors that may present a danger to our students. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing our school safety protocols in our district. Contact your school principal if you have questions about this system.

Russell Lee-Sung

Deputy Superintendent

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) attracted more than 700 students to its Summer Engineering Academy, Music Academy, and Costa Mesa SMART CAMP Program. Students needing additional support also had opportunities to participate in English and math summer programs to better prepare them before advancing to the next grade level.  

Students at Summer Engineering Camp

Summer Engineering Academy

More than 450 first through seventh grade students participated in the three-week Summer Engineering Academy. The academy provided students with the opportunity to use the Engineering is Elementary Curriculum. Students also learned from the California Environment Education Curriculum, which taught them the importance of our environment.

Summer engineering allows students to explore new technologies and get excited about creating their own ideas. Students take pride in solving problems and testing possible solutions.

“I love seeing students get excited about things they originally thought were "too hard" or challenging,” said Lindsey Goff, teacher.

Students had the opportunity to:

  • Design and build cars and boats out of index cards, popsicle sticks, and other materials
  • Design, build, and test water filters, knee braces, and windmills
  • Learn basic coding skills using Ozobots, which are pocket-sized robots, coded/programmed via colored markers and/or iPads
  • Build simple machines in the Lego Robotics room
  • Practice controlling VEX Robots and paper rockets

“We get to do experiments and sometimes we have to figure it out by ourselves,” said second grade student Jazmin Haro. “Sometimes you have the best ideas and you get to build them. Sometimes you need help and your friend can help you solve the problem,” she said.

The Summer Engineering Academy Fair, on July 26, is the culminating event where families have the opportunity to view their students’ engineering projects in action.

Students in Summer Music Program

Summer Music Academy and City of Costa Mesa SMART Camp Music Program

More than 250 students in grades fourth through eighth participated in the NMUSD Summer Music Academy and the City of Costa Mesa’s SMART CAMP Music Program. Students participated in the three week music program in beginning and intermediate strings, beginning and intermediate band, and jazz band. The Summer Music Academy was offered in the mornings and the City of Costa Mesa's SMART Camp Music Program was offered in the afternoon, giving students a full day of music!

“The music teachers and I are thrilled that we had elementary students working well together and high school volunteers who were great mentors to younger players,” said Mr. Scott Fitzpatrick, music teacher on special assignment.

The highlight of the summer program is typically the culminating summer music concert, where students’ hard work, dedication and talents are showcased through their performances in strings orchestra, concert band, and jazz band.

Join us in celebrating students’ accomplishments:

Language Explorers English Language Development Program
 

Nearly 35 English learners, from grades 8-11, had the opportunity to strengthen their skills in speaking, writing, listening, and reading in English through the Summer English Language Development Program. Students explored poetry, short stories, their communities and their cultures. They also used art as a vehicle of self-expression while building language. 
 
Family members were invited to attend an open house where they learned more about the program, toured classrooms, asked questions, and were able to see firsthand the progress their students have made through their displayed work.
 
One of the highlights from the program was the opportunity for students to visit the California State University, Fullerton campus on July 25th. This exclusive field trip teaches students fundamental skills for preparing for a life after high school. This experience exposes them to a range of possibilities to help them stay focused and engaged in school.

Food Cart

Newport-Mesa Unified School District announces its yearly policy to serve nutritious meals every school day under the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, and/or Afterschool Snack program. Effective July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019, children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals if the household income is less than or equal to the federal guidelines.

Free and reduced meal eligibility scale.

Households do not need to turn in an application when the household receives a notification letter saying that all children automatically qualify for free meals when any household member receives benefits from CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR. Children who meet the definition of foster, homeless, migrant, or runaway, and children enrolled in their school’s Head Start program are eligible for free meals. Contact school officials if any child in the household is not on the notification letter. The household must let school officials know if they do not want to receive free or reduced-price meals.

Applications will be sent to the household with a letter about the free and reduced-price meal program. Households that want to apply for meal benefits must fill out one application for all children in the household and give it to the nutrition office at 2985 Bear Street, Building B, Costa Mesa, CA  92626. For a simple and secure method to apply, use our online application at http://nmusd.heartlandapps.com. Contact the Nutrition Services Office at 714-424-5090 for help with the application. The school will let you know if your application is approved for free or reduced-price meals. 

Households may turn in an application at any time during the school year. If you are not eligible now, but your household income goes down, household size goes up, or a household member starts receiving CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR, you may turn in an application at that time. Information given on the application will be used to determine eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school officials. The last four digits of the Social Security number from any adult household or checking that you do not have a Social Security number is required if you include income on the application.

Households that receive Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) benefits, may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals by filling out an application.

Foster children are eligible for free meals and may be included as a household member if the foster family chooses to also apply for the non-foster children on the same application. Including foster children as a household member may help the non-foster children qualify for free or reduced-price meals. If the non-foster children are not eligible, this does not keep foster children from receiving free meals.

Your child’s eligibility status from last school year will continue only until September 30, 2018 or until the school processes your new application, or your child is otherwise certified for free or reduced-price meals. After September 30, 2018, your child will have to pay full price for meals, unless the household receives a notification letter for free or reduced-price meals. School officials do not have to send reminder or expired eligibility notices.

If you do not agree with the decision or results of verification, you may discuss it with school officials. You also have the right to a fair hearing, which may be requested by calling or writing the hearing official: Dale Ellis, Director of Nutrition Services, 2985 Bear Street, Building B, Costa Mesa, CA 92626, Phone: 714-424-5090.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

Board Meeting Overview

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.

  • Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
  • Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
     
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
     
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

Dear NMUSD Parents,

On June 26, 2018, the Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) Board of Education directed staff to consider additional input before making a final recommendation for the District’s Middle and High School Math Course Pathways for the 2018/19 school year.

Based on the Board’s direction, a determination has been made to maintain the current middle and high school math course pathways. An Enhanced Math 7/8 course will continue to be offered to students who earned qualifying scores (80% or better) on the seventh grade Acceleration Determination Point (ADP) Exam. The ADP was administered this past semester to sixth grade students. Notification to families of student results on the ADP and recommended seventh grade math course placement will be mailed to parents by the end of July.

Newly adopted middle school math materials will be utilized in Math 7, Math 8, and Enhanced Math 7/8 courses. Students successfully completing Enhanced Math 7/8 will be placed in Math I as eighth grade students. Traditional and enhanced High School Math I, II, and III pathways will also be maintained for the 2018/19 school year.

While NMUSD will maintain current secondary math pathways for the 2018/19 school year, the District will continue to assess and research instructional practices, materials, and course pathways that will better support all students meeting the expectations of the state standards for mathematics.

Student Using Technology in the Classroom

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is at the forefront of preparing students for a future that involves exciting technological advancements, innovation, and automation. Students and staff in kindergarten through twelfth grade participate in a variety of computer science, robotics, and engineering activities. Project Lead the Way and Computer Science Pathway programs in our middle and high schools, and coding and computer science programs in the elementary grades engage students in exciting technology based learning.

As the California State Board of Education continues to make significant strides in developing and implementing the Computer Science Standards, the momentum in teaching computer science in schools has never been stronger. NMUSD has introduced structured coding and computer science curriculum at many of our elementary schools, with the goal of aligning them to our new English Language Arts and Math curriculums in the fall of 2018.

One of this year’s newest district initiatives is the Elementary Vex IQ Scrimmage League. The Education Technology Department created and coordinated an intra-district robotics league for several elementary schools - Andersen, Davis, Kaiser, Newport Heights, Rea, Eastbluff, and Harbor View. Elementary robotics teachers at these sites coordinated efforts for students to compete in driver skill and teamwork challenges in this year’s Vex IQ Scrimmage League - Ringmaster. The league supported students and staff in their rigorous work aligned to Next Generation Science Standards, computer science, and engineering standards. It also allowed students to persevere in their engineering research, collaborate with teams to redesign robots, and work together to win the scrimmages and become league champions.

Our district also is hosting the 3rd Annual NMUSD District Robotics Competition, which is on Saturday, June 9th at Estancia High School. Teams from Corona del Mar Middle School, Costa Mesa Middle School, Ensign Intermediate, Tewinkle Middle School, and Estancia High School will participate in this year’s Vex EDR Challenge - In the Zone. Students will bring their creatively designed robots and competitive spirits to showcase their engineering and robotics skills as they battle for the coveted Tournament Champion award for their school.

As a district we are excited to recognize and share the amazing work of our students and staff in their computer science, engineering, and robotics efforts. We look forward to the expansion of our computer science programs and what our students will create in the near future.

Please take a moment to watch our Technology in the Classroom video as we share some of the advantages, opportunities, and the technology that we provide our students in classrooms throughout Newport-Mesa Unified School District.

Six Seniors Recognized in the Superintendent Character Trait Awards Program

Character Trait Award Recipients

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) recognized six high school seniors for their exceptional character leadership traits. Now in its sixth year, the program recognizes six graduating seniors from high schools throughout our district who exemplify one of the six pillars of character: caring, citizenship, fairness, respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness.

Miranda McCormick – Caring – Newport Harbor High School
Miranda cares about her community beyond the walls of the classroom. She works tirelessly in her community to help those in need and improve the lives of others. For six years, she spent her summers volunteering at our school district sponsored Camp Friendship helping younger children with autism develop social skills. She patiently and effectively connects with young people to bring out their best with her kindness that requires no acknowledgement. She also worked to ease childrens pain for children in life-threatening situations and their families as second year in a row president for the on campus the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

James Brown – Citizenship – Estancia High School
James is a peer mentor to ninth grade students as a Link Crew Leader and has participated in Estancia’s Youth and Government program for three years, where he currently serves as delegation president. He is an ambassador of Estancia High School’s student delegate of the Australia Sister City Education Exchange Program, and is a member of Estancia’s Leo Club through Lions International and Interact Club through Rotary International, which promotes leadership and responsible citizenship. He also serves as a tutor and volunteers at local homeless shelters to help coordinate food and clothing donation campaigns.

Alexander Johnson – Respect – Early College High School
Alexander is known for showing consideration toward classmates, staff, and anyone that he meets. He firmly believes in accepting differences in others and practices tolerance of differing ideas in the classroom, and in his daily interactions with others. He consistently demonstrates the ability to be an active listener and genuinely cares about other people’s points of view. When communicating with his classmates he is respectful in his speech and actions towards others. He is a balanced thinker who is easy-going and mild-mannered.
Emily Kubisty – Fairness – Estancia High School
Emily consistently models fairness by listening to all points of view during activities and lessons, and she upholds the expectations of leadership and collaboration within the classroom. She is a Link Crew Leader at Estancia and works daily with a group of twelve freshmen leading team-building activities. She actively encourages all students to equally participate and share thoughts in a positive manner. When freshmen students experience disagreement, Emily facilitates communication and understanding between all parties to resolve potential conflicts. She pursues positive solutions to problems, and has built strong relationships as a result. Emily’s ability to be fair and play by the rules also extends to the softball field where she exemplifies the C.I.F. Victory with Honor Principles.

Ryan Hamilton – Trustworthiness – Corona del Mar High School
Ryan has gained the trust of the staff on campus by working as an office teacher assistant. Ryan takes his job seriously and listens well to directions. He understands the importance of his job and ensures that he is ready to serve at any moment. If the office staff has something very important to be delivered or needs something done right, they make sure they give it to him or they will wait until they know he is working to get it done. School staff trusts him and knows that he will be responsible for any task given.

Zaid Batarseh – Responsibility – Costa Mesa High School
Zaid responsibly runs regular meetings with his peers and organizes students in various roles to implement community and fundraising projects. Zaid has taken his school leadership roles seriously, whether as a mentor, running community events, or fundraising. He works closely with parents on various band events, attends parent meetings, does monthly reports, advocates for his peers, and works closely with his teachers. He mentors younger members of the middle school and volunteers to work with elementary students during the summer. Due to his responsible work ethic Zaid was asked to assist teachers with various organizational duties during the district’s elementary summer music program.

In May the selected students received a surprise visit from Superintendent Dr. Fred Navarro and were presented a letter of recognition and an invitation to be recognized by the Board of Education at the June 12, 2018 Board Meeting. A banner with a photo of each student, name of their high school, and their character trait will be displayed in the district lobby throughout the 2018-19 school year.

Board Meeting Overview

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.

  • Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
  • Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

ERP Honor Roll Logo

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is proud to have five schools named as California Honor Roll Schools by the Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE). The five schools recognized this year include California Elementary, Costa Mesa High, Early College High, Killybrooke Elementary, and Paularino Elementary.

The Honor Roll program is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. The Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle and high schools that demonstrate consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps. For high schools, Honor Roll recognition also includes high student college readiness.

“We are proud to see the hard work and dedication of our schools being recognized as part of the Honor Roll proram,” said NMUSD Superintendent Dr. Fred Navarro. “Our teachers and administrators are committed to continually improving efforts to provide positive outcomes for all students,” he said.

Through national research, the ERP identified a common set of success factors in higher performing Honor Roll schools. These include clear, specific learning objectives aligned to college and career readiness, evidence-based instructional practices, investment in human capital, maintenance of data and assessment systems to monitor school and student performance, and deploying resources and guidance to support schools’ efforts to prepare all students for college and career.

Students and Faculty Showcase their Single-Seat Solar Powered Boat

Costa Mesa High School took home the top prize in the rookie division at the three-day Metropolitan Water District 2018 Solar Cup competition, the largest student-based solar-powered boat race in the nation.   

Costa Mesa High School was one of 38 Southern California schools that participated in the year-long program where students build, equip and race 16-foot, single-seat boats powered only by the sun. Their hand-built crafts were constructed from kits consisting of batteries, drive trains, electrical systems, propellers, rudders, and solar panels.

The Solar Cup program allows students to apply their skills in math, physics, engineering, and Communications while learning about Southern California’s water resources, resource management, Conservation, and alternative energy development.

Besides earning the top rookie prize, Costa Mesa High School also won several other awards.  They took home 1st place Public Service announcement in the rookie division, 1st place (tie) Endurance finish in the rookie division, and 2nd place Sprint finish in the rookie division. They finished 4th place overall (rookie and veteran divisions combined) out of 38 other teams.  

“We are extremely proud of our students and their ability to transform what they are learning in the classroom to real life application of physics, engineering, and mathematics” said Costa Mesa High School Principal Jake Haley.

More than 600 students participated in the competition and top awards were given for best rookie team, veteran team, teamwork, sportsmanship, and the “hottest-looking boat”.  Costa Mesa High School’s team was comprised of sophomores, juniors, and seniors from the school’s Engineering and Environmental Science programs. The team was led by faculty advisors Racine Cross, Cristen Rasmussen, and Karen Upthegrove.

Board Meeting Overview

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.

  • Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
  • Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Logo

School safety is a concern for everyone. Tragedies like what occurred in Texas today remind all of us to continue to be vigilant and prepare as best as possible for the unexpected.

Our district regularly reviews, practices, and enhances our safety procedures.

We have a partnership with the Costa Mesa Police Department and the Newport Beach Police Department to provide School Resource Officers (SRO), which are local law enforcement officers who work closely with all of our schools.

All school sites have safety plans in place which are updated yearly and as-needed throughout the year. Safety plans are regularly reviewed and updated in collaboration with emergency responders and local law enforcement, including SROs.

Schools regularly conduct safety drills with students and staff to prepare for a variety of potential situations. Drills include procedures for lock down, shelter in place, run, hide act, among others such as earthquake and fire procedures.

Schools participate in threat assessment and emergency response trainings with local law enforcement and first responders.

Our district has a Crisis Response Team that is immediately deployed to a school(s) during a crisis to provide immediate and ongoing support and resources. Counselors, social workers, and school psychologists are available to students should they need additional support during difficult times. We also encourage parents to have open discussions with their children to help them process the event and continue to raise awareness about the importance of safety.

While we have plans in place that are regularly practiced, please know that school safety is not something we can do alone. The partnership and support that we have with our local law enforcement and our school community is critical.

We ask for parents’ support in reminding students to please take all drills seriously, follow law enforcement, teacher and site administrator instructions, and if they see something, say something - it is the best deterrent to potentially harmful situations. We want everyone on our campuses, including parents and guardians to be empowered to report unusual or suspicious activity. 

Please know that we do all we can to provide a safe learning environment when students are in our care. We prioritize safety and continually assess our preparedness, improve our practices, and evolve with the changing times.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District

In August 2017, Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) began the process of evaluating and piloting new math instructional materials for sixth through eighth grade. Through the seven month, teacher-driven, pilot process, teachers and staff identified Illustrative Mathematics as the comprehensive set of sixth through eighth grade math instructional materials for NMUSD students.
 

Illustrative Mathematics materials are available for public review on the Open Up Resources Website.  If you would like to review a hard copy of the materials, please contact Tere Russell at (714) 424-5066 or trussell@nmusd.us to make a viewing appointment at the District Office (Sanborn Building) – 2985 Bear Street, Costa Mesa 92626. Material viewing will be available from May 10, 2018- to June 12, 2018. All schools will have the QR code, links and a computer available should you wish to review material at the site. A recommendation for final approval will go forward to the Board of Education on June 12, 2018 to implement these new materials for the 2018/19 school year.
 

If you are having trouble accessing the IM website, please copy and paste this link into your browser.  https://im.openupresources.org/index.html

Board Meeting Overview
 

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.
 

  • Closed session
    agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
  • Open session
    items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

If you're good at mathreading music, or programming/coding, you are a great candidate for our robotics team!

 

We have just a few openings remaining for our one-day competition on Saturday, May 19, in Irvine.  More information is available in the attached PDF.

 

We'll teach you what you need to know about U.C. Davis' "LinkBots", programmable cubes that link with others to create robots.  They have capabilities that include:  moving forward/backward, turning left/right any number of degrees, playing music, detecting movement through an accelerometer, remote control, etc.  We use a programming language called Ch, which is a hybrid of C and C++.  You don't need to know it to be an integral part of the team!  You simply need to like solving problems, because the competition is all about asking robots to do work-related tasks.  Here are sample tasks:

  • Two robots start at different locations, move toward each other, and stop within an inch of hitting.
  • A missile-defending robot sees a missile robot, and heads it off, crashing into it.
  • Three robots work together as a stopwatch.  Each spins slower than the next, like hours, minutes, seconds.  Every 60 rotations of seconds produces a rotation in the minutes robot...
  • A robot must trace out a figure-of-eight

There are different divisions, depending on your grade level.  Some of the tasks above are too easy for juniors and seniors, and too hard for middle-schoolers.  Don't panic if you're a 7th-grader, and don't get cocky if you're in 12th!

 

Kids who compete for us get to include this as an extra-curricular activity when they apply to college... Your college might be impressed!

 

We can teach what you need to know, but you need to be a good team-player!  Don't come for free cookies, video-gaming, and joking around.  Well, we'll likely have cookies and jokes, just no gaming.

 

You need to let me know of your interest by the end of tomorrow, Thursday the 26th.  First come, first served!

 

Practices would be flexible: before/after school, and lunch, depending on your schedule.  The more you practice, the better you're prepared.  If you can't make a practice, that's fine.

 

Do you have what it takes?  Send a LoopMail, if so.

 

Thanks!

 

Mr. Smith

Board Meeting Overview

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.
 

Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.

  • ​​​​​​​ Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

Newport Mesa Unified School District Logo
School safety is a concern for everyone particularly with the recent events that have occurred nationally and locally. While Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) has always prioritized safety we must continually assess our preparedness, improve our practices, and evolve with the changing times.

 

In an effort to support this important goal, Superintendent Dr. Navarro has assigned Deputy Superintendent Mr. Russell Lee Sung to immediately conduct an in-depth review of all safety related procedures, update policies and procedures (where necessary), and provide assistance to all school sites and work locations throughout the district. Since this will require focused attention in next several months, Director of Curriculum and Instruction Mr. John Drake, will temporarily assume many duties of Chief Academic Officer.

 

You may recall a communication that Superintendent Dr. Fred Navarro sent to NMUSD families in February, which provided a brief overview of current safety plans and procedures. While all our schools have comprehensive safety plans to respond to safety-related incidents that meet or exceed the compliance requirements of the state, NMUSD must have a renewed focus on all safety practices.

 

Since October 2017, district administrators from various departments throughout the district met regularly to review all aspects of safety. Mr. Russell Lee-Sung facilitated this process, and has supported and worked with site principals and district management.

 

On February 27, 2018 the Board of Education directed staff to provide recommendations for improved safety. A series of immediate short-term actions items have been developed and include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Physical Environment
    • Conduct site safety reviews with focus on access to campus.
  • Law Enforcement Partnership
    • Coordinate increased School Resource Officers (SRO) visibility throughout all school zones, particularly at the elementary schools.
  • Drills
    • Review, update, train, and practice safety drills to ensure they meet current needs of our ever-changing school/work environments.
  • Communication
    • Seek updated contact information for parents and guardians to ensure schools have the most accurate contact information in case of an emergency – Update Contact Information
    • Conduct emergency communication drills (email, phone call message, if cell phone is on file - text message)
    • Research district-wide anonymous reporting system
  • Positive School Culture
    • Continue to implement Positive Behavior Intervention Systems (PBIS) and restorative practices.
    • Continue to use social, emotional, and behavioral health support services and assess all threats and reports of bullying.
    • Implement the Challenge Success partnership at high schools. Challenge Success is an organization that provides strategies to staff, students, and parents to create a positive academic learning environment. Based on their work with our schools, Challenge Success will offer recommendations for creating a healthier school climate.  

While these are only a few of the immediate action items, other long term safety measures must be considered on a district wide level and strategic basis after careful research and consideration.

 

Please know that safety is always at the forefront of our mind but safety requires the diligence of everyone playing an important role in contributing to a safe environment. We urge everyone to stay alert, report concerns, wait for official communication from your child’s school or our district, avoid spreading rumors or unsubstantiated information, and use good judgment and flexibility during an emergency as each incident is unique which may require modifications to our planned procedures.
____________________________________________________________


La seguridad escolar es una preocupación para todos particularmente con los eventos recientes que han ocurrido nacional y localmente. Aunque el Distrito Escolar Unificado Newport-Mesa (NMUSD) siempre le ha dado prioridad a la seguridad, debemos evaluar nuestra preparación, mejorar nuestras prácticas, y evolucionar con los tiempos cambiantes.

 

Con el fin de apoyar a esta importante meta, el superintendente Dr. Navarro ha asignado al vicesuperintendente Sr. Russell Lee Sung, a llevar a cabo una revisión profunda de todos los procedimientos relacionados con la seguridad, actualizar los reglamentos y procedimientos (donde sea necesario), y proveer ayuda a todos los planteles escolares y lugares de trabajo a través del distrito. Ya que esto requerirá el enfoque especial en los siguientes meses, el director de Currículo y Enseñanza, el Sr. John Drake, asumirá muchas de las funciones del director de Asuntos Académicos.

 

Es posible que usted recuerde un comunicado que el Superintendente Dr. Navarro envió a las familias del NMUSD en febrero, el cual proveía un breve resumen de los planes y procedimientos actuales. Mientras que nuestras escuelas tienen planes de seguridad comprensivos para responder a incidentes relacionados con la seguridad que cumplen o sobrepasan los requisitos de cumplimiento del estado, el NMUSD debe tener un enfoque renovado en todas las prácticas de seguridad.

 

Desde octubre de 2017, los administradores del distrito de distintos departamentos dentro del distrito se reunieron regularmente para revisar todos los aspectos de la seguridad. El Sr. Russell Lee-Sung facilitó este proceso, y ha apoyado y trabajado con los directores escolares y la administración del distrito.

 

El 27 de febrero de 2018, la Junta de Educación dirigió al personal a proveer recomendaciones para mejorar la seguridad. Se ha desarrollado una serie de cosas inmediatas a corto plazo que incluye, pero no está limitada a, lo siguiente:

  • Entorno Físico
    • Llevar a cabo revisiones de seguridad con un enfoque en el acceso al plantel escolar.
  • Asociación con las Autoridades
    • Coordinar la visibilidad aumentada de Oficiales de Recursos Escolares (SRO) en todas las zonas escolares, particularmente en las escuelas primarias.
  • Simulacros
    • Revisar, actualizar, entrenar, y practicar los simulacros de seguridad para asegurar que cumplan con las necesidades actuales de nuestros entornos cambiantes de la escuela/trabajo.
  • Comunicación
    • Pedir información de contacto actualizada para padres y tutores para asegurar que las escuelas tengan la información de contacto más precisa en caso de emergencia – Actualizar la Información de Contacto
    • Conducir simulacros de comunicación de emergencia (correo electrónico, mensaje telefónico de voz, si existe un celular en el expediente – mensaje de texto)
    • Investigar un sistema de reporte anónimo a nivel del distrito
  • Cultura Escolar Positiva
    • Continuar aplicando los Sistemas de Intervención de Conducta Positiva (PBIS) y prácticas restaurativas.
    • Continuar usando los servicios de apoyo social, emocional y de salud conductual y evaluar todas las amenazas y reportes de acoso escolar.
    • Aplicar la colaboración Challenge Success en las preparatorias. Challenge Success es una organización que provee estrategias a personal, estudiantes, y padres para crear un entorno de aprendizaje académico positivo. Basado en su trabajo con nuestras escuelas, Challenge Success ofrecerá recomendaciones para crear un ambiente escolar más saludable.

Mientras que estas son algunas cosas de acción inmediata, se deben considerar otras medidas de seguridad a largo plazo a nivel del distrito y una base estratégica después de una cuidadosa investigación y consideración.

 

Tenga presente que la seguridad siempre está al frente de nuestra mente, pero la seguridad requiere la diligencia de todos en desempeñar un papel importante en contribuir a un ambiente seguro. Instamos a todos a estar alerta, reportar preocupaciones, esperar comunicación oficial de parte de la escuela de su niño o nuestro distrito, evitar esparcir rumores o información no confirmada, y usar su buen juicio y flexibilidad durante una emergencia ya que cada incidente es único lo cual puede requerir modificaciones a nuestros procedimientos planificados.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Teachers Training

Newport-Mesa Unified School District’s (NMUSD) successful approach to curriculum adoption was featured in a case study by EdReports.org.

 

EdReports.org is an independent nonprofit designed to improve K-12 education. EdReports.org increases the capacity of teachers, administrators, and leaders to seek, identify, and demand the highest-quality instructional materials.

 

The case study reviewed NMUSD’s nine month curriculum adoption process for elementary math and English language arts instructional materials. The case study notes NMUSD’s commitment to a transparent adoption process that was data driven, aligned to state standards, and teacher-centered.

 

As part of the process NMUSD partnered with the Orange County Department of Education who supported the district with their deep knowledge and expertise to provide guidance on the adoption process, evaluation tools, professional development, and final program selection process. 

 

The adoption process began with a Steering Committee, which included educators throughout the district. The Steering Committee reviewed and determined which two instructional material programs would be piloted. The next step in the process was intensive training into the shifts in mathematics. Each program was then piloted for seven weeks.

 

After months of meetings, piloting, and evidence gathering, the materials adoption team reviewed the results and began the consensus process to select the best instructional materials for NMUSD students. The first task in the consensus process was to build a shared definition and understanding of what consensus means.

 

“The idea is that all voices are heard, and you don’t move forward until everyone, even those who most oppose it, can see the will of the group emerging,” said Mr. George Knights, director for assessments for NMUSD.

 

Based on the analysis of the results, a consensus was reached through a variety of activities designed so that all voices would be heard and eventually reveal the will of the group. At the end of the nine month process, the NMUSD Board of Education adopted the recommended math and English language arts curriculum for elementary students.

 

While the comprehensive, teacher-centered adoption process ends there, the implementation, ongoing support for students and teachers, and parent education continues.

 

The implementation process began with a summer professional development series, where teachers participated in various training opportunities to learn the new material and approaches on how to best implement the material.

 

NMUSD also has implemented a yearlong Moonlight Series, which are two hour grade specific sessions to review upcoming units of study. The lead pilot teachers from the adoption process and district staff lead these monthly sessions.

 

As part of the momentum that’s building specific with elementary math instruction, schools also began incorporating parent education sessions. Each school site has flexibility as to how they engage, educate, and provide parents with resources to support their child’s learning. Some schools have hosted “bring your parent to math class day” or “muffins and math day,” for parents to see firsthand what math looks like in the classroom today. Schools also have or will host formal parent meetings and presentations to provide a greater understanding of the state standards and how students are learning math concepts to best prepare them for future success.

 

To learn more please read the full case study by EdReports.org about NMUSD’s transparent approach to curriculum adoption.

Board Meeting Overview

 

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.
 

  • Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
  • Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) congratulates Janice Duzey, Counselor at Costa Mesa High School, for receiving the Orange County Pathways Counselor Award. School counselors are invaluable in providing vital support to students in the areas of academics and mental health; they are a critical resource when it comes to student success.

 

Janice Duzey, Counselor at Costa Mesa High School

Janice Duzey Counselor at Costa Mesa High School

 

Ms. Duzey was recognized for her collaborative approach to supporting students in the areas of Career Technical Education, pathways, and preparing them for college and career success. She has worked in NMUSD for 18 years, starting at Estancia High School for one year and now serving as school counselor at Costa Mesa High School. Beyond helping students navigate the typical rigors of high school, coursework, preparation for college and beyond, she is also invaluable to students in the support of their mental health. She spends countless hours helping students and parents understand what options they have in navigating their path to success both emotionally and academically.

 

“My job is to help students identify their purpose and identify a pathway to that purpose,” said Janice Duzey.

 

Ms. Duzey finds that, while students may develop a passion in a particular area of study, some may complete a pathway and choose to go a different direction after high school. No matter what the students choose to do, completing a pathway gives them a real-life skill set beyond the typical high school graduation requirements that they can take with them regardless of the path they take in life. 

 

“I am privileged to have received such a significant honor from the county, and thankful that I found my own pathway, passion, and sense of belonging as a school counselor,” said Janice Duzey.

 

This is the first year of the Orange County Department of Education’s (OCDE) Counselor Recognition Program and Ms. Duzey was one of nine counselors to receive an award. The OC Pathways award is collaboration between the OCDE and a consortium of ten community colleges. The award recognizes counselors that help students unlock their own interests, strengths, and passion and then develop goals based on those assessments. Ms. Duzey and the other award winners were recognized at an OCDE board meeting February 14, 2018. Ms. Duzey also will be recognized at the 2018 Orange County Counselor Symposium in October 2018.

CSF Membership

The California Scholarship Federation is an honors society that recognizes high academic achievement. Membership in our organization signifies excellence in academic achievement.

In order to become a member, the student must submit an application at the beginning of each semester reflecting the previous semester’s grades.  To secure eligibility for California Scholastic Federation membership, a student must earn sufficient points from the pre-approved course list. Late applications are not accepted and there is no retroactive membership. Applications must be submitted to the CSF advisor ( Ms.Stemler) before the deadline.

To achieve Life Membership/ CSF Sealbearer status one must qualify for a total of 4 semesters, one semester from sophomore year, two semesters in the junior year and one semester from the senior year. Students who meet this qualification will earn the CSF Gold Seal on their diploma and wear a gold sash during the graduation ceremony. CSF Sealbearers also get to sit in the front row during graduation. 

 

Who can be a part of CSF?

10th, 11th, and 12th Graders can now apply using grades from FALL SEMESTER (2017).

Students must reapply each semester, using grades from the previous semester.

What is required to be a member?

Students need a total of ten (10) points based on the list of courses offered at their school. A minimum of seven (7) of the ten points must be from Lists I and II courses, with four (4) of these points from List I. The additional three points may be from List III. Students may use up to five courses (25 credits) to apply for membership. However, a D or an F in any subject, even if not being used for CSF points, disqualify the student for that semester. Good citizenship is also a membership requirement. The approved courses are listed on the back of the CSF application.

Why should I apply?

Qualifying for CSF allows students to apply for special awards and scholarships.

CSF Sealbearers are able to wear a special sash and sit in the front row during the high school commencement ceremony in June. 

CSF is a wonderful addition to a student's resume and college applications.

CSF is an honor and is awarded to students with exemplary performance in high school academics and attention to community service.

How do I do it?

**Download the attached form and return it to Ms. Stemler in the Counseling Office. Once reviewed student will take the application to ASB window to pay $5 CSF fee. Seniors pay $10. 

**You can also pick up a copy at the Counseling Office and return the completed form to Ms. Stemler by April 6th, 2017.

**REMEMBER you will need to attach a copy of your transcript to the application.

Daniela Logan

Daniela Logan
Daniela Logan - Center
 

Daniela Logan serves as an accounting assistant III and has worked for NMUSD for more than 20 years and is the employee of the year in the category of Office and Technical. Daniela is a talented and dedicated employee whose customer service focus builds strong relationships with various departments and school employees across the district. Her positive attitude and ability to truly connect with people of varying personalities, needs, and budget knowledge make her an invaluable resource to the fiscal team and district as a whole.

 

Daniela is critical in assisting the management of programs that directly impact students such as early childhood education, after school enrichment programs, and the preschool programs. She also developed and implemented a budget training program for the school sites and departments that she supports. This gives those departments a greater understanding of the budget process. Living in Long Beach, Daniela also serves students in that area too. She is a member of the Assistance League of Long Beach Mentoring Program. In this program she serves local high school students and connects them with internship opportunities, raises funds for college scholarships, organizes career oriented workshops, and hosts cultural activities. She is dedicated to ensuring that all students know that anything is possible.

 

 

Francine Harms

Francine Harms - Third from left
 

Selected as employee of the year in the category of Transportation, Francine Harms has worked with the district for more than 10 years in the transportation department. She started as a trainee bus driver and has worked her way up through the ranks and is now a bus cover driver managing 58 bus routes. Her ability to manage bus routes, placement of students, particularly those with special needs, mentoring drivers, maintaining records, and general office management makes her a perfect fit in the transportation department.

 

Francine’s charismatic personality builds camaraderie, support, and success. She regularly mentors, trains new drivers, and provides ongoing support and recommendations to experienced drivers. She comes to know drivers so well that she can actually tailor bus routes to match drivers to students that they can best connect with. Francine also has participated in the Bus In The Classroom program which teaches students with special needs life-long skills in independent mobility. She is a positive change-agent, kind hearted, and a collaborative problem solver. Francine works to build great morale amongst those around her in the workplace in many ways. Her random notes of kindness to drivers and positive inspirational quotes around the office make a deeply positive impact.

 

Maria Gomez

Maria Gomez
Maria Gomez - Center
 

Maria Gomez has worked as a special education instructional assistant at Killybrooke Elementary for 12 years, and was selected as employee of the year in the category of Para-Educator and Instructional Assistance. She is extremely creative, animated, and models good behavior for her students. Maria takes the time to get to know her students personalities, abilities, and preferences and then uses that to encourage success. She goes above and beyond what’s expected in order to help students unlock their passion and meet their full potential.

 

Maria believes in helping students become more involved, build friendships, and helping general education students become more accepting of all students. One year at a talent show, Maria had a student that loved dancing so she worked with that student to choreograph a routine along with backup dancers. She took the extra time and effort to make sure the students were prepared and comfortable. This is an example of how Maria’s passion and care, benefits more than just the students that she works with directly. Due to her years of experience Maria also is able to offer tips and ideas to colleagues on how to encourage students.

 

 

Patricia Sanchez

Patricia Sanchez - Second from the right
 

Patricia Sanchez has worked for NMUSD for more than 25 years. She currently works at TeWinkle Intermediate School where she has served for the past 10 years. As employee of the year in the Child Nutrition category, Patricia has served in a variety of roles in school kitchens. She displays this invaluable experience each day as she assists in the preparation of more than 700 meals at her site.

 

Patricia has a genuine care for each student and impacts their lives in a positive way each school day. She regularly encourages students to eat healthy and trade cookies and chips for fruits and vegetables. She takes time to get to know students’ favorite meals so that when they are honored with an exemplary behavior award she is sure to reward those students with their favorite foods. She is extremely flexible and cooperative in the kitchen and steps into the leadership role easily when her supervisor is absent. Patricia is able to lead and direct the work of her colleagues in a respectful and collaborative manner. She consistently exudes happiness and helpfulness in ensuring that the school lunch program is a healthy, positive place for staff and students.

 

The Classified Employees of the Year will be recognized at a future NMUSD board meeting and will be considered countywide for the Orange County Classified School Employee of the Year.

Board Meeting Overview

 

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.

 

  • Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
  • Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

The team of Dylan Nguyenhuu, Ferenc Gozony, Geoffrey Gaites, and Spencer Manning ended their 2017-2018 "CyberPatriot" cyber-security competition season after advancing past the State level into "semi-finals".  Their skills/knowledge of scripting and computer/network "hardening" were put to the test on virtual computers using Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, and Ubuntu (Linux).  There was additional testing on Cisco and its PacketTracer software.  The team of Gus Ruiz and Huy Ngo, both seniors, competed in the Silver division of the semi-finals too, but lacking another three teammates, they did well to amass an impressive point total.

 

The CyberSecurity / Networking class of Mr. Smith's will be competing in the NationalCyberLeague.org "Capture The Flag" nationwide event this Spring.  See attached file.

In the interest of keeping the community informed, please see below for a brief review of some items on the upcoming Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) Board Meeting. 

                                 

The NMUSD Board of Education meeting agenda is posted online the Friday prior to the meeting. Click the following link to view the full  NMUSD Board of Education meeting agenda.

 

Board Meeting Agenda Highlights:

 

Reports

 

12.a. NMUSD Mental Health and Crisis Response Initiatives. Last Spring the Board of Education approved board policy and administrative regulations related to compliance with Assembly Bill (AB) 2246, which mandated suicide prevention and education training to public school employees. This action was just one component of a larger, multi-faceted, and ongoing plan related to providing mental health and social and emotional supports to all students and families in the District. This report will offer a mid-year assessment of the initiatives related to the crisis response protocols that have been put into place since the adoption of AB 2246 board policies and administrative regulations 

 

Consent

 

15.a.8. Approve a 24-Month Extension of the Memorandum of Understanding With the City of Newport Beach for Field Improvements at Newport Elementary School. The City of Newport Beach is requesting a 24-month extension to improve the playground and fields. The City of Newport Beach will design, bid, and construct the improvements including but not limited to all plans, specifications, permits, drawings and public notices.

 

 

15.b.1. Approve Addendum for Instructional Materials Adoption Support with the University of California, Irvine History Project. The UCI History Project has assisted NMUSD secondary history and social science teachers with comprehensive staff development to support the implementation goals for history and social science. This proposal is an addendum to the ongoing relationship between the UCI History Project and NMUSD to support the district to initiate the process of instructional material adoption.

 

Discussion/Action

 

16.a. Approve California School Board Association (CSBA) Delegate Assembly Election for 2018. CSBA Delegate Assembly is the primary policy-making body of the association. Each year in the fall, nominations for representatives to CSBA's Delegate Assembly are accepted. Delegates represent 24 regions throughout the State of California, and serve alternating two-year terms.

 

 

General Board Meeting Overview

 

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.

 

Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
 

Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections:  

 

  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member. 
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board. 
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law.   
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

The Mesa Cycling mountain bike race team competed Saturday in the www.NonDotAdventures.com time-trial at Whiting Ranch park in Foothill Ranch.  The highlight of the race was the inclusion of "Dreaded Hill", one of the steepest/longest hills to climb in Orange County.  Most kids hop off their bikes at least once to hike-a-bike before continuing to the top!

 

Last year's winner, Geovanny Martinez, a freshman this year, moved up a race class this year, and placed third:

 


 

Coach Smith, sporting new wheels on his bike, shaved 1:15 off his personal best on Dreaded Hill, down to 10:16.  This led to a first place showing in the Men's "sport" class for old fogies aged 55-60 years-old (yet fast enough to have placed in the top-two or three in the age 30 and age 40 brackets too)!

 


 

More importantly, all the other Mesa racers who competed faced the gnarly hill and the single-track trail that followed.  Dylan Nguyenhuu, Joey Santoyo, Joshua Salgado, Brandon Cruz, Luka Gogorishvili, and Kollin Truman raced, and earned points towards the Non-Dot series.  Unfortunately, many of our other racers weren't available due to work and other reasons.

 

This is just the start of our race season....stay tuned!

Hello CMHS/MS Parents and Students, 

 

It has come to our attention that students have been receiving letters from "Right C3." If you received a letter from "Right C3" college planning please proceed with caution. Costa Mesa High School did not authorize for this letter to be sent. This company "Right C3" is fee-for-service and will charge you for the appointment and any other continued advising. This company has a history of complaints and is not recommended by Costa Mesa High School.

If you receive any other letters or emails offering financial aid/scholarship or college assistance please communicate with Counseling or the College & Career Center to ensure that it legitimate. 

 

When applying for scholarships and financial aid programs, beware of any offer that is asking for advance fees or secure financial information. Scholarships should not be asking for your social security number or credit card information.

 

Additionally, Look out for these tell-tale lines:

  • “The scholarship is guaranteed or your money back”
  • “You can’t get this information anywhere else”
  • “We just need your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship”
  • “We’ll do all the work. You just pay a processing fee”
  • “The scholarship will cost some money”
  • “You’ve been selected by a national foundation” you haven’t heard of

For questions or assistance with college applications, financial aid, or scholarships please see your counselor or the College & Career Center. 

 

Thank you for reading,

They only look toothless!  They re vicious deep down inside.
 

Today was the second round of the national Cyber Patriot competition in cyber-security sponsored by the Air Force Association.  The eighth-grade team of Spencer Manning, Dylan Nguyenhuu, Ferenc Gozony, and Geoffrey Gaites took 31st of 545 teams nationally, and 18th of 111 teams in California.  For the last two years, our teams traditionally finished in the middle of the pack.  This year, a course in Networking and Cyber-Security in available exclusively to eighth-graders who completed Exploration in Technology as seventh-graders.

 

A coded script written by Ferenc Gozony was unveiled today to systematically apply operating system administrative commands to "harden" dirtied virtual machines running inside of standard Windows computers.  The operating systems covered in today's competition were Windows 7 and 10, and Ubuntu (Linux).  The script was not the majority point contributor, as all four boys had to contribute to each of the three operating systems.

 

Another middle school team comprised of seventh-graders Anna Babichenko, Priscilla Marquez-Couoh, Ravdeep Singh (absent today), and Nolan Nguyen valiantly competed, but since none are enrolled in the Cyber-Security course, they placed 79th out of 111 in California.  The experience will accrue toward next year's success.

 

Teams are usually composed of five students.  With only three present, points are harder to score.  This was the case for the two-man high school team of Huy Ngo and Gus Ruiz.  Also not enrolled in the Cyber-Security class, these two had to amass their knowledge of anti-hacking on their own, after school.  Both are currently enrolled in two separate AP courses, however:  Computer Science "A", and Computer Science Principles.  Both therefore have strong coding skills, but must seek network and operating system knowledge from other sources.  The two finished 1266th out of 1590 high school teams.  If only they had three other teammates to complete their roster!

 

All students (and coach!) sacrifice about five Saturdays, but are rewarded with anti-hacking skills, challenge, fun, and a superior activity to add to their college entrance forms.  With zero unemployment in cyber security jobs (20 different jobs that didn't exist 20 years ago), those who go on for further study could end up working at Target and Equifax (recently hacked companies), the Department of Defense, or other companies.

 

Scrappy newcomers...

Calendar Review Committee Recommendation

 

The Calendar Review Committee, comprised of certificated and classified staff, parents, district administrators, and employee bargaining units, typically develops calendar recommendations two to three years in advance of implementation. For the past few years, the Committee has discussed the concept of a collegiate calendar; the school year starting prior to Labor Day with the first semester ending prior to winter break.

 

Starting this fall, the Committee met five times to explore and consider a collegiate calendar. The Committee began by seeking anecdotal data from the school community which led to the attached Fact Sheet (Benefits and Concerns/FAQs). A survey was circulated to obtain input related to the concept of a Collegiate Calendar. Five information meetings were hosted to share and clarify particulars of the Fact Sheet and gather input from staff, parents and students.

 

The Committee carefully weighed these components prior to coming to a recommendation.  When reviewing the information gathered, the Committee found that the responses on the survey varied with overall results indicating most respondents did not support the move to a collegiate calendar. Analyzing subgroups from elementary, middle and high school respondents, there was a gradual increase of support for the change (please see attached survey results).  Comments collected during the information meetings identified multiple benefits for students, numerous concerns regarding heat in the classrooms of those schools without heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and the timeline for implementation.  While there has been a systematic plan for HVAC installation since 2013, the plan beyond the summer of 2018 was not available during the time of the survey and information meetings. The complete installation plan for all remaining schools was shared during the November 14, 2017 Board Meeting (please see attached).

 

After extensive analysis and discussions, the Committee recognized significant student benefits of a collegiate calendar particularly when they reach the secondary level  and acknowledged the primary concern expressed by many stakeholders for HVAC to be installed at all school sites.  The Committee considered the new information provided in the HVAC plan to address the concerns regarding heat and explored ways to provide students the benefits of the collegiate calendar.  The Committee ultimately determined moving to a collegiate calendar was in the best interest of students. Implementing it three years from now would address concerns related to HVAC installation and create more time to plan for the transition.

 

The Calendar Review Committee has made the following recommendations and will meet to design the details of the calendars, which will move forward to the District and NMFT negotiation teams:

  • A traditional calendar for the 2018-2019 school year  (Adopted October 10, 2017)
  • A traditional calendar for the 2019-2020 school year
  • A collegiate calendar for the 2020-2021 school year

Upon completion of negotiations and approved by the Board of Education, the adopted calendars will be made public.

Recomendación del Comité de Revisión de Calendario

 

El Comité de Revisión de Calendario, formado por miembros del personal acreditado y de apoyo académico, administradores del distrito, y unidades de negociación de empleados, típicamente desarrolla recomendaciones de calendario con dos o tres años de anticipación antes de su aplicación. En los últimos años, el Comité ha tratado el concepto de un calendario universitario; en donde el año escolar comienza antes del Día del Trabajo y el primer semestre termina antes del descanso de invierno.

 

Comenzando este otoño, el Comité se reunió cinco veces para explorar y considerar el calendario universitario. El Comité empezó con la recolección de datos anecdóticos por parte de la comunidad escolar lo cual resultó en la Cartilla Informativa adjunta (Beneficios y Preocupaciones/Preguntas Frecuentes). Se circuló una encuesta para obtener aportes relacionados con el concepto de un Calendario Universitario. Se llevaron a cabo cinco reuniones de información para compartir y clarificar las particularidades de la Cartilla Informativa y para recolectar aportes por parte del personal, padres y estudiantes.

El Comité examinó cuidadosamente estos componentes antes de determinar una recomendación. Cuando se revisó la información recolectada, el Comité encontró que las respuestas en la encuesta variaban con los resultados generales indicando que la mayoría de los encuestados no apoyaba el cambio a un calendario universitario. Una vez analizados los resultados de los subgrupos encuestados de primaria, secundaria y preparatoria, hubo un aumento gradual en el apoyo al cambio (favor de ver los resultados de la encuesta adjunta).

 

Los comentarios recolectados durante las reuniones de información identificaron múltiples beneficios para los estudiantes, numerosas preocupaciones en cuanto al calor en las aulas de esas escuelas sin calefacción, ventilación, y aire acondicionado (HVAC por sus siglas en inglés), y la línea de tiempo de aplicación. Mientras que ha existido un plan sistemático para la instalación de HVAC desde el 2013, el plan para después del verano del 2018 no estaba disponible durante el tiempo de esta encuesta o las reuniones de información. El plan completo de instalación para las escuelas restantes se compartió en la reunión de la Junta de Educación el 14 de noviembre del 2017 (favor de ver la hoja adjunta).

 

Después de extenso análisis y conversaciones, el Comité reconoció los beneficios significativos a los estudiantes de un calendario universitario particularmente cuando alcanzan el nivel secundario y reconocieron la preocupación principal del HVAC y su instalación en todas las escuelas expresada por las partes interesadas. El Comité consideró la nueva información proveída en el plan HVAC que aborda el tema de las preocupaciones en cuanto a la calefacción y exploró maneras de proveer el beneficio de un calendario universitario a los estudiantes. Finalmente, el Comité determinó que el cambio a un calendario universitario era en el mejor interés de los estudiantes. La aplicación dentro de tres años abordaría las preocupaciones de la instalación de HVAC y crearía más tiempo para planificar la transición. 

 

El Comité de Revisión de Calendario ha hecho las siguientes recomendaciones y se reunirá para diseñar los detalles de los calendarios, lo cual se enviará al Distrito y los grupos de negociación de NMFT:

  • Un calendario tradicional para el año escolar 2018-2019 (Adoptado el 10 de octubre del 2017)
  • Un calendario tradicional para el año escolar 2019-2020
  • Un calendario universitario para el año escolar 2020-2021

Una vez que finalicen las negociaciones y sean aprobados por la Junta de Educación, los calendarios adoptados se harán públicos.

Congratulations to Sophomore Diane Molina for her 15th place finish at this weekends CIF State Cross Country Championships held at Woodward Park in Fresno. 

Racing with the best runners in the State, Diane covered the 5000 meter course in 18:47 making CMHS history by running the fastest time by any CMHS girl runner!

Diane's race was not easy as this was the hottest state meet temperatures in history, she had to endure 3 starts as 2 were called back due to runners crashing at the start and Diane herself tripped and fell halfway into her race!

Diane ran a courageous race and made CMHS XC running history!

Diane is now the fastest girl cross country runner in CMHS history!

Mesa Proud!

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

Newport-Mesa Unified School District has partnered with Hanover Research, an independent research firm, to explore parents’ experiences with our district. The findings from this exploration will support the development of our district’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

 

As part of this exploration, Hanover Research will conduct a series of telephone interviews with parents. These conversations are designed to explore how parents engage with our district and their child’s school, and how parent engagement could be improved.

  

Participants will be selected at random and participation in these interviews is voluntary. However, it is important that members of the Newport-Mesa school community participate because only they can tell us about their perceptions and experiences. Please note that participation or non-participation will not affect any relationships you or your student(s) have with teachers, peers, or administrators. If you choose to participate, your responses will be kept anonymous.

 

You may be contacted by Hanover Research in the coming weeks to request your participation. If you have any questions or do not want to participate in these conversations, please email Hanover Research’s Content Director, Cate Keller at: ckeller@hanoverresearch.com or call 714-424-8919.

A recipe for comedic disaster and one catastrophe after the next -- LEND ME A TENOR will surely keep you laughing. 

 




ALL PROCEEDS SUPPORT THE MESA DRAMA DEPT! COME SUPPORT US! There are 2 Casts... see below for show date/times.

 

Get your tickets at showtix4u.com


Below is a synopsis for those wondering... what the heck is it about?

World-renowned tenor Tito Merelli has signed on to play Otello at a Cleveland opera company in the fall of 1934. He arrives late and, through a set of crazy circumstances, passes out after mixing wine with a huge dose of tranquilizers. Believing that the divo is dead, the excitable opera manager taps his hapless assistant, an aspiring singer named Max, to suit up as the Moor and replace Merelli. Meanwhile, the tenor’s jealous wife, his ambitious female co-star, Max’s young girlfriend and the flirtatious head of the opera guild are on the scene fighting—sometimes literally—for the star’s attention.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Logo

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is considering a shift to a collegiate calendar to more closely align with neighboring school districts and local colleges. This shift would start the school year up to three weeks prior to the Labor Day holiday and end the first semester prior to the winter break.

 

As a unified school district, this decision impacts everyone; therefore, NMUSD is in the process of seeking input from the school community regarding the potential shift. Please see the Collegiate Calendar Fact Sheet link below. The Fact Sheet includes background information, dates for informational meetings, benefits, concerns/frequently asked questions and the survey link (survey will be available November 1-15).

 

Your input will help guide the Calendar Committee in developing their recommendation. The final decision is determined through the negotiations process and adopted by the Board of Education.

Attention 11th and 12 graders : 

 

It's time to apply for CSF (California Scholarship Federation)  !!!!!

CSF Membership

The California Scholarship Federation is an honors society that recognizes high academic achievement. Membership in our organization signifies excellence in academic achievement.

In order to become a member, student’s grades 10th-12th must submit an application at the beginning of each semester reflecting the previous semester’s grades.  To secure eligibility for California Scholastic Federation membership, a student must earn sufficient points from the pre-approved course list. Late applications are not accepted and there is no retroactive membership. Applications must be submitted to the CSF advisor before the deadline.

To achieve Life Membership/ CSF Sealbearer status one must qualify for a total of 4 semesters, one semester from sophomore year (spring), two semesters in the junior year and one semester from the senior year. Students who meet this qualification will earn the CSF Gold Seal on their diploma and wear a gold sash during the graduation ceremony.  These students are also eligible to apply for additional scholarships.

Who can apply now for CSF?

Current 11th and 12th graders can now apply using grades from SPRING SEMESTER (2017).

Students must reapply each semester, using grades from the previous semester.

What is required to be a member?

Students need a total of ten (10) points based on the list of courses offered at their school. A minimum of seven (7) of the ten points must be from Lists I and II courses, with four (4) of these points from List I. The additional three points may be from List III. Students may use up to five courses (25 credits) to apply for membership. However, a D or an F in any subject, even if not being used for CSF points, disqualifies the student for that semester. Good citizenship is also a membership requirement. The approved courses are listed on the back of the CSF application.

Why should I apply?

Qualifying for CSF allows students to apply for special awards and scholarships.

CSF seniors are able to wear a special sash and sit in the front row during the high school commencement ceremony in June. 

CSF is a wonderful addition to a student's resume and college applications.

CSF is an honor, and is awarded to students with exemplary performance in high school academics and attention to community service.

How do I do it?

**Download the attached application and the CSF approved course list or (pick up one in the counseling office) and return it to Ms. Stemler by Friday, October 27th, 2017. Once reviewed and approved by advisor, student will take application to ASB window to pay $5 CSF fee. A receipt will be stapled to your application which you will turn back into Ms.Stemler.

DEADLINE: Friday, October 27th, 2017

**REMEMBER you will need to attach a copy of your transcript to the application.

**Any questions email jstemler@nmusd.us or call 714-424-8791

Hello!
 

The Prudential Spirit of Community Service Awards is a wonderful way to celebrate students for their community service - and to elevate them as models for their peers. This year's student application deadline is November 7, 2017, and I hope student volunteers apply.

 

The deadline is fast approaching for youth volunteers to apply for local, state, and national recognition through the 2018 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards.

Awards are open to students in grades 7 - 12 who have made meaningful contributions to their communities through volunteer service in the past year. Middle level and high school volunteers are honored in every state, and top honorees earn cash awards and an all-expenses-paid trip with a parent or guardian to Washington, D.C. Qualifying honorees also receive President's Volunteer Service Awards.

The following links provide more details that may be of interest:

For complete details about The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, visit https://spirit.prudential.com.

 

Applications will need to be printed and returned to Mrs. Hatch in the Community Service Office!

Notice is hereby given that on October 24, 2017, the Board of Education of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District at a regular meeting to be held at 6:00 p.m. at the District’s Board Room, located at 2985 Bear Street, Building A, Costa Mesa, CA 92626, the Board of Education will conduct a public hearing to provide opportunity for the community to provide oral comment to the Board regarding the proposed waiver application to the State Board of Education with respect to a shift to by-trustee area elections.  Persons seeking information should contact the Superintendent’s Office, (714) 424-5031.

 

Q & A on Waiver Request to State Board of Education Regarding Change in Board of Education Election System from At-Large to
By-Trustee Area Voting

 

On February 28, 2017, the Board of Education of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District directed a shift from the current at-large system of electing Board Members to by-trustee area elections. These Questions & Answers have been developed to provide information to all interested parties on this process. 

 

 

Q: What is the change that will take place?

A: Currently, members of the Board of Education are elected in “at-large” elections, i.e., elections in which each governing board member is a resident of a trustee area but elected by the registered voters of the entire school district. Starting in the November 2018 election, Board Members will be elected by only the voters living in a designated trustee area.

 

Q: How many areas will there be?

A: The Board of Education will remain at seven members; therefore there will be seven areas.

 

 

Q: How may I learn more and/or provide feedback to the Board?

A: A public hearing regarding the submission of a waiver to the State Board of Education for a change from at-large to by-trustee area elections will be held October 24, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Students Show Growth from 2015 to 2017 in Statewide English and Math Assessment

 

Students in Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) show growth from 2015 to 2017 in statewide English Language Arts (ELA) and math assessments. NMUSD students also remain above the Orange County and California averages in ELA and math.  

 

The Smarter Balanced assessments are part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), which tests ELA and math standards for students in grades three through eight and grade 11. The Smarter Balanced assessments are computer adaptive tests that adjust the difficulty of the test items based on how a test taker responds. This provides a more precise measure of student performance.

 

The Smarter Balanced assessments, now in the third year, show an increase of 4.57 percentage points in NMUSD students having met or exceeded ELA standards, and an increase of 3.99 percentage points in students having met or exceeded math standards, when compared to the 2015 baseline assessments.

 

Many NMUSD schools have shown impressive growth during the three year period. Ensign Intermediate School maintained growth all three years in both ELA (9.0 percentage point growth) and math standards (8.50 percentage point growth). Nine schools have shown a growth of more than ten percent in ELA standards, with Adams Elementary showing a growth of 19.23 percentage points. Five schools have shown double digit growth in math standards, again with Adams topping the list at 17.13 percentage point growth.

 

Specific to Title I schools, nearly all have shown growth in ELA and math standards. Adams, Sonora, and Paularino Elementary Schools have shown double digit growth in both ELA and math standards.

 

“It is encouraging to see our Title I schools performing well,” said Deputy Superintendent and Chief Academic Officer Russell Lee-Sung. “This is a testament to the focus of our teachers, and principals to improve our instructional program for all our students,” he said.

 

Our district has been focused on providing support for classroom intervention systems to better implement differentiation of instructional strategies. This allows teachers and instructional assistants to provide targeted support to struggling students and additional enrichment opportunities for high achieving students, such as small group instruction with specifically tailored instructional materials.

 

ELA and math results for English Learners have remained relatively flat throughout the three year assessments. Our district is focused on improving English Learner proficiency by providing additional supports, such as the adoption of new elementary English Language Arts, English Language Development, and math instructional materials. Our district has added two Instructional Specialists in 2017/18, for a total of three that are solely dedicated to improving English Learner proficiency in all subject areas.

 

Looking at grade levels, third and sixth grade students have shown consistent growth in both ELA and math, throughout the three years of the assessments. While the district looks at improvement at all grade levels, there has been a strong focus on the third grade foundational skills. It is widely known that if students are not reading at grade level by third grade, it is increasingly more difficult for them to meet future grade level performance.

 

Comparing results from 2016 to 2017 assessments, NMUSD students showed a slight growth of .57 percentage points in ELA standards and a decline of 1.01 percentage points in math standards.

 

“We are confident that the selection of new elementary math and ELA/ELD instructional materials being implemented this school year will improve student proficiency,” said Deputy Superintendent and Chief Academic Officer Russell Lee-Sung.

 

The current statewide assessments only focus on ELA and math standards, however it is anticipated that the California Science Test (CAST) will be included in the state testing program in 2019. In the meantime, NMUSD teachers continue to work on the next generation Science Standards (NGSS) to prepare for the CAST.

 

Individual student 2017 assessments were mailed to parents. The NMUSD Smarter Balanced testing schedule for 2018 is anticipated for March 20 through June 15.

 

While statewide assessments provide valuable information about overall student progress and areas for improvement, they do not provide a holistic view of student achievement. The new California School Dashboard is expected to provide a more detailed view of performance, based on multiple factors, beyond state testing results. These factors include graduation rates, suspension rates, chronic absenteeism and college and career readiness. However, the State is not expected to provide this data until December 2017.
