Parent Survey
The district is gathering feedback on your perceptions and experiences of TUSD, and is asking our parents to participate in a survey. El distrito está recaudando información sobre sus percepciones y experiencias del distrito escolar unificado de Tehachapi, y estamos pidiéndoles a los padres de familia que participen en una encuesta.
A big THANK YOU to the Kiwanis Club of Tehachapi
The Kiwanis Club of Tehachapi donated $2037.70 to Tompkins Elementary School to purchase four iPads to use in classrooms. Staff and students are excited about the added technology in their classrooms and can't wait to start using them.
Parents: Information on the Smarter Balanced Assessment
California Healthy Kids Survey
We will be having the CHKS survey on January 29 for 5th graders. This year we will be using the computer based survey instead of paper and pencil. A note will be going home on January 12th regarding the survey. It is active consent, in other words, they must return the permission slip to participate. In order to be equitable and encourage returning of permission slips, students are being asked to return their permission slips regardless of whether they are participating. The fifth grade classroom that returns the largest percentage of permission slips will receive a pizza party. It will be classroom teachers’ responsibility to keep track of yeas/nays and administer the computer test. The parent and staff electronic surveys will hopefully begin on the 15th also. We are waiting for information and will get it out to you soon.
Student Listening Circles
One of the characteristics of successful schools is that they provide a safe, civil, healthy and intellectually stimulating learning environment. An important dynamic of providing that type of environment is giving students opportunities to have a voice in their education. Towards that end, the district is using a facilitated focus-group process that engages and supports students as they share with adults their experiences, perspectives and ideas about school. All of the schools in TUSD will be going through the process. JMS completed its SLC on October 21. It was very informative to listen as the students were lead through the process. On March 12, a small group of 4th & 5th graders from Tompkins who are representative of our student body will work with a small group of adults to give their input about education at Tompkins. I will continue to give you more information about SLC in the coming weeks.
