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.

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!

Recognition

11.a. Recognize Newport-Mesa Unified School District’s 2018 Classified Employee of the Year Recipients.

17.b.1. Approve Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center Contract for California Elementary School for the 2018/2019 School Year. Students and teachers from California Elementary School will participate in the program offered at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center during 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.

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.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) announces the 2018 Classified Employee of the Year awards program winners. The winners will proceed for consideration in the Orange County Classified Employees of the Year Program.

 

The Classified Employee of the Year awards program recognizes employees that go above and beyond the expectations of their job duties to provide exemplary service to students, families, and colleagues.

 

The 2018 Classified Employee of the Year winners are:

  • Daniela Logan, Office and Technical
  • Francine Harms, Transportation
  • Maria Gomez, Para Educator
  • Patricia Sanchez, Child Nutrition

 

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

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 - 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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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 (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.

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.

Audience: Homepage

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.

 

 

Q: What if I have additional questions?

A: You may contact the Superintendent’s office via email at superintendent@nmusd.us and/or attend the public hearing referenced above.

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.

Public Hearings to be Conducted Regarding the Adjustment of Trustee Area Boundaries on September 18, September 28 and October 9

 

Newport-Mesa Unified School District will conduct three public hearings for the Board of Education to receive public comments specifically related to the two proposed trustee area boundary map options “B” and “G”. Trustee areas are specific boundaries within the school district that each Board of Education Member is elected to represent. Trustee boundaries are separate from school attendance boundaries and any changes to trustee area boundaries will not change or impact a student’s home school. Students’ home school will remain the same.

 

Two trustee area boundary maps, “B” and “G” are currently under consideration. Please visit the Trustee Area Boundary Adjustment webpage for more information, including proposed maps and analysis reports.

 

Upcoming Public Hearings:

 

You are invited to attend the following public hearings to provide public comments specifically related to the two proposed trustee area boundary map options.

*Please note that the District may adjourn earlier than 8 p.m. after accepting all comments, commencing
at 6 p.m.

 

September 18, 2017*

6:00 p.m.

September 28, 2017*

Costa Mesa High School

Theatre

2650 Fairview Road

Transportation to the public hearing at Costa Mesa High School will be provided from the Rea Elementary School parking lot at 5:30 p.m. and will return at the conclusion of the public hearing.

 

October 9, 2017*

6:00 p.m.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Boardroom

2985 Bear Street

Costa Mesa, CA 92626

 

Public Hearing Format:

  • The public hearings are formal Board of Education meetings and will be video recorded.
  • The two maps (“Map B” and “Map G”) will be on display, as well as the analysis reports for each map.
  • Public comments will be received verbally or in writing.
  • Spanish interpreters will be available at each public hearing.

Background:

 

Newport-Mesa Unified School District has seven Board of Education members who are currently elected through an at-large voting system. An at-large voting system means that each member is elected by the entire school district voting population, but is required to reside in a particular trustee area. This is authorized by Education Code section 5030.

 

In a separate but related topic to boundary adjustments, in February 2017 the Board of Education initiated the change to elections by trustee area, commencing with the November 2018 elections. Elections by trustee area means that members will be elected by the specific trustee area that they represent, as opposed to the entire school district voting population (as is currently the process).

 

Due to the extensive population growth on the east side of the district, the superintendent convened a committee to review trustee areas. The committee, with the assistance of a demographer, was tasked with balancing the seven trustee areas to each have proportionate population and take into consideration traditional redistricting principles, such as trustee areas should be compact and contiguous; should consider communities of interest; should consider man-made and natural geographic features; and should continue with at least one majority–minority trustee area. The committee created proposed trustee area boundary map B.

 

The District conducted two initial public meetings in March 2017 to review trustee area boundaries and receive public input.

 

At its April 18, 2017 meeting, the Board of Education conducted a study session to receive and consider information related to the boundary adjustment. The Board directed the demographer to prepare additional draft maps for consideration. Map G was a result of public input and direction form the Board.

 

In its August 22, 2017 meeting, the Board of Education voted to conduct three public hearings to receive community input on maps B and G (meeting details are noted above).

 

Next Steps:

 

The Board of Education is expected to take action on the proposed trustee area boundary maps at a future Board of Education meeting.

 

Please visit the Trustee Area Boundary Adjustment webpage for more information, including current and proposed maps, and map analysis reports.

Audiencias Públicas que se llevarán a cabo respecto al Ajuste de los Límites de las Áreas de los Miembros de la Junta Directiva el 18 y 28 de septiembre y el 9 de octubre.

 

El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Newport Mesa llevará a cabo tres audiencias públicas de la Junta Directiva de Educación para escuchar los comentarios del público específicamente relacionados a las dos opciones propuestas para el mapa de límites del área “B” y “G”. Las áreas de miembros de la Junta Directiva son límites específicos dentro del distrito escolar que son representados por cada miembro elegido de la Junta Directiva. Los límites de los miembros de la Junta Directiva son límites completamente separados de los límites de asistencia escolar, y cualquier cambio a los límites de las áreas de los miembros de la Junta Directiva no cambiará ni tendrán impacto en la escuela de residencia del estudiante. La escuela de residencia del estudiante será la misma.

 

Dos mapas de límites de las áreas de los miembros de la Junta Directiva, “B” y “G” están actualmente bajo consideración. Por favor visite la página web del Ajuste de Los Límites de las Áreas de Miembros de la Junta Directiva para obtener más información, incluyendo los mapas propuestos y los informes de análisis.

  • Las audiencias públicas son juntas formales de la Junta Directiva de Educación y serán grabadas.
  • Los dos mapas (“Mapa B” y “Mapa G”) estarán exhibidos, así como también lo estarán los informes de análisis para cada mapa.
  • Los comentarios públicos ser recibirán de manera verbal o escrita.
  • Tendremos Intérpretes para español disponibles en cada audiencia pública.

Antecedentes:

 

El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Newport Mesa tiene siete miembros de la Junta Directiva quienes son actualmente elegidos a través de un sistema de votación general. Un sistema de votación general quiere decir que cada miembro es elegido por toda la población votante del distrito escolar, pero se requiere que el miembro resida en una de las áreas específicas del distrito. Esto está autorizado por el Código de Educación sección 5030.

 

En un tema separado pero relacionado al ajuste de límites, en febrero de 2017, la Junta Directiva de Educación inició el cambio a las elecciones por área de miembro de la junta directiva, comenzando con las elecciones de noviembre de 2018. Las elecciones por área de miembro de la junta directiva quieren decir que los miembros serán elegidos por el área de miembro específica que ellos representen, contrario a que sea toda la población votante del distrito la que los elija (proceso actual).

 

Debido al crecimiento de la población en el lado Este del distrito, el superintendente convocó un comité para revisar las áreas de los miembros de la junta directiva. Se le asignó al comité, con la asistencia de un demógrafo, balancear las siete áreas de los miembros de tal manera que cada uno tuviera una población proporcional y que considerarán los principios tradicionales de reestructuración, tales como que las áreas de miembros de la junta deberán ser compactas y contiguas; deberán considerar comunidades de interés; deberán considerar características geográficas artificiales y naturales; y deberán continuar con por lo menos un área de miembro de la junta de mayoría-minoría. El comité creado propuso el mapa de límite de área B.

 

El Distrito llevó a cabo dos juntas públicas iniciales en marzo de 2017 para revisar los límites de las áreas de los miembros de la junta directiva y para recibir aportes del público.

 

En la junta del 18 de abril de 2017, la Junta Directiva de Educación llevó a cabo una sesión de estudio para recibir y considerar información relacionada al ajuste de límites. La Junta Directiva instruyó al demógrafo a preparar borradores de mapas adicionales para ser considerados. El Mapa G fue el resultado del aporte del público y de la instrucción de la Junta Directiva.

 

En la junta del 22 de agosto de 2017, la Junta Directiva de Educación votó para llevar a cabo tres audiencias públicas para recibir aportes de la comunidad en cuanto a los mapas B y G (los detalles de la junta se describen arriba).

Siguientes pasos:

Se espera que La Junta Directiva de Educación tome acción en los mapas de límites de las áreas de los miembros de la junta directiva en una futura junta de la Junta Directiva de Educación.

 

Por favor visite la página web del Ajuste de Los Límites de las Áreas de Miembros de la Junta Directiva para obtener más información, incluyendo mapas actuales y propuestos, y los informes de análisis de los mapas. (Oprima “Select Language” arriba, a la derecha de la página de internet para cambiar el idioma a “Spanish” (Español)).

Congratulations to Team Captain Felicia and her sister Tayla Crenshaw for competing at the CIF State Track & Field Championships this weekend in Fresno.  

Felicia and Tayla represented Costa Mesa High School and it's community with character and pride!

This was Tayla's 1st State Meet coming off an amazing season with a new season best in the discus with a throw of 136' 9" which puts her as #2 on the All Time List for the discus!  

Tayla gave it her best on Friday and fell short of making it to Saturday Finals but it was not due to lack of effort!  

Tayla has come so far this season as last season  she did not advance out of Prelims but this season advanced all the way to the State Championships!  

Team Captain Felicia again showed what Champions are made of when it comes to her character!  

Champions are tested when everything is on the line and you have to perform under great pressure. 

Again, Felicia past that test this weekend as she stepped up on Friday and Saturday when everything was on the line!

This was Felicia 2nd trip to the State Meet as last season she placed 7th just missing the podium after having a break through season!  

Felicia was determined to make the podium this season and she did just that with an amazing finish of 5th place and the honor of being on the podium with the best discus throwers in the State!  

Felicia on her last throw of the season threw to a new personal best of 156' 8" putting her in 5th place and getting on that podium!  

Congratulations to Felicia and Tayla!

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) recognized six high school seniors for their exceptional character leadership traits. For the fifth year in a row, Superintendent Dr. Fred Navarro recognized one graduating senior from each high school who exemplifies one of the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

 

Each high school is asked to submit the names of six seniors they believe are exemplars of each pillar of character. A district team reviews the 36 nominations and selects one student from each school that best represents one of the six pillars of character. In May each student received a surprise visit at their school from and was presented a letter of recognition and an invitation to be recognized by the Board of Education at the June 13, 2017 Board Meeting. A banner for each student will be displayed in the district lobby with a photo of each student, name of their high school and their character trait. The banners will remain throughout the 2017-18 school year.

 

“This is one of my favorite awards because it allows us an opportunity to acknowledge students for just being genuinely good people,” said Superintended Dr. Fred Navarro. 

 

Congratulations to the following students selected as Character Trait Award Winners:

 

Philandell Campaner

Philandell Campaner
Back Bay High School

Character Trait: Respect

 

Back Bay High School administration shared the following about Philandell:

 

As a student of martial arts Philandell applies the philosophy of the sport to those around him. He shows restraint, is slow to anger, and uses his thoughts as a tool to help others. He learned early in life that to be successful in school you had to do the work, question the content not the teacher, and ask for help. He demonstrates his respect for the classes he is in by engaging in the course work and participating in discussions. He learned not to judge others who have failed because he himself has failed and from his own failures he learned to empathize with students who are struggling. He has volunteered as a math tutor on campus and supports other students in the classroom. He also embraces discipline and restraint. As a site council member Phil was able to participate with adults and staff members and joined in discussions.

May 9, 2017 Full Board Meeting Agenda

 

 

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.

Roadeo Winners Ricardo Sandoval, Juliann Scheafer, and Jason Greenberg
(Left) Ricardo Sandoval, (middle) Juliann Scheafer, (Right) Jason Greenberg, 2017 Orange County Roadeo winners.

 

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) school bus drivers Ricardo Sandoval, Juliann Scheafer and Jason Greenberg win top honors at the 57th annual Orange County School Bus Roadeo, which attracted nearly 100 drivers.

 

Ricardo Sandoval, who has been a school bus driver with NMUSD for four years, won first place in the county and first place overall. Juliann Scheafer was awarded third place in the county. As a team, Ricardo, Juliann and Jason placed first countywide.

 

NMUSD school bus drivers have been competing in the Roadeo, on and off, since 1991, and have amassed 18 first place individual wins and seven team wins at the county level.

 

School Bus Safety Roadeos are held across the United States and require drivers to pass a written test prior to competing in the seven behind the wheel events. The emphasis throughout the competition is safety and by design, increases safety awareness. Various Roadeos occur throughout California, leading up to the statewide competition. Drivers that perform well at the state level are invited to compete at the International Roadeo competition. Last year, NMUSD bus driver Victor Garza was awarded first place at the International Roadeo. Part of NMUSD’s success in the Roadeo can be attributed to the rigorous training program, ongoing education and testing that takes place within the district. 

 

“Everything we do, all of the training, all of the testing is to increase safety. We want parents to know that we have some of the best drivers in the state,” said NMUSD Transportation Operations Supervisor Norm Turner.

 

Participation in the Roadeo is voluntary and NMUSD consistently participates and succeeds at these events. Some drivers attend the Roadeo even if they are not participating in the competition just to support their colleagues, often times cooking and volunteering at the event.

 

There is a proud history throughout NMUSD of providing safe and efficient school bus transportation. NMUSD is an industry leader in student transportation for a variety of reasons including maintaining clean buses in good working order, having some of the best drivers in the state, and assisting other districts implement the Bus in the Classroom student transportation safety skill training program.

 

NMUSD is currently hiring bus drivers! If you or someone you know is interested in joining an award-winning team of school bus drivers, please visit the job opportunities website. Drivers can start with little or no experience and through paid training get the experience and licensing necessary to become a school bus driver. Juliann Scheafer, one of this year’s award-winning Roadeo participants, began with NMUSD in 2014 with no previous experience. She received her training through NMUSD and went on to successfully compete at the state level finishing with a fourth place win within her first year.

Students using Chromebooks

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) launched a Chromebook initiative that will provide access for all students to a digital environment.  

 

In fall 2016, implementation of the Chromebook initiative began with the Estancia Zone. This provided all students in grades K-7 with access to Chromebooks, with grades 3-7 being a one-to-one environment. Chromebooks were distributed to students in the Estancia Zone which includes TeWinkle Middle School, Adams, California, Pomona, Rea, Victoria and Wilson Elementary Schools.

 

Informational parent meetings were held at all schools. Traditional computer labs are being replaced with mobile technology and devices in the classroom.

 

With more devices in their hands, students will learn the benefits that technology has to offer by fine-tuning their foundational research skills, storing their projects and activities in the cloud, and sharing ideas in a safe and supportive online environment.

 

This initiative has led to increased use of technology in the classroom, with students using it for research, collaboration and to create new and exciting works, while teachers are finding new ways to engage students both in groups and individually. As professional development for staff is crucial part of the initiative, the Educational Technology Department has been providing training on best practices for using Chromebooks as an instructional tool, support for initial setup and lesson design using a co-teaching model and customized trainings based on skill level of staff. Digital Fellows and site technology coordinators at the schools also continue to provide support as needed.

 

The Initiative includes the following:

 

  • Kindergarten - 2nd grade: One shared classroom set of Chromebooks per grade level. Each classroom also receives 6 Chromebooks. Chromebooks remain at the school.
  • 3rd - 4th grade: One classroom set of Chromebooks per class. Chromebooks remain at the school.
  • 5th - 8th grades: In fifth grade students are assigned a Chromebook that they take home and keep until 9th grade. For the initial launch of the initiative all students in grades fifth through seventh were assigned a Chromebook.
  • 9th grade: Students will be assigned a Chromebook in 9th grade that they take home and keep until they graduate. For the Initiative, 9th graders will receive Chromebooks in Year 2.

 

Students that are assigned Chromebooks to be taken home follow a similar approach to when textbooks are checked out from the library. They are responsible for ensuring the safe handling and charging of their Chromebooks.

 

For the 2017-18 school year, the Chromebook initiative is expected to be implemented throughout the Newport Harbor Zone in the same format as the Estancia Zone. The Newport Harbor Zone includes Kaiser, Mariners, Newport, Newport Heights, Whittier and Woodland Elementary Schools, as well as Ensign Intermediate and Newport Harbor High School. It is anticipated that the Chromebook initiative will be implemented in the Costa Mesa zone and Corona del Mar in the following years.

 

For more information about the Chromebook Initiative please contact edtech@nmusd.us
