2017-2018 California League of Middle Schools (CLMS) Region 10 Educator of the Year Finalist

Congratulations to Park View Middle School teacher Brittany Bay for being selected as a finalist for the CLMS Region 10 Educator of the Year. She is an educator who exemplifies educational excellence and has made significant efforts to implement elements of educational reform at Park View Middle School. Mr. Tucci, Park View Middle School principal wrote the following in Ms. Bay’s nomination letter, “There is no other team player at PVMS who exemplifies the willingness to reach out to students in a variety of ways to help them connect to their school. Her excitement for the connection with kids is unmatched at our school." 

Gold Bell Award – A Night in the Trenches

Congratulations to Yucaipa High School teachers John Taylor and David Paul for earning a California School Boards Association (CSBA) Golden Bell. The CSBA Golden Bell Awards promotes excellence in education and school board governance by recognizing outstanding programs and governance practices of school boards in school districts and county offices of education throughout California.

A Night in the Trenches is a simulated experience for students in Yucaipa High School. From 5 p.m. until the sun rises the next day, two teams of students go on “missions.” Activities include fighting battles, spying on each other, plotting stratagems and binding each other’s “wounds.” A winner is determined based on points earned for the missions. They have only their uniforms and some rations (no phones!) for the whole night. Students who have experienced this event say that it’s life-changing; some decide that history will be their college major, and most show increased interest in, and therefore achievement in, their European and US History courses.

The Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District (YCJUSD) is in the process of reviewing and updating the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is intended to be a comprehensive planning tool to help all students succeed. Parents, families and community members participated in the development and evaluation of our school district's LCAP.

The California School Dashboard is an online tool that helps school stakeholders understand the progress their schools and districts are making in a variety of important areas. The Dashboard shows how well a school or district is doing, and whether or not they are improving, on multiple measures of student progress instead of relying entirely on test scores. The Dashboard emphasizes equity by showing the progress of all student groups and makes direct connections to the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which helps educators, parents, and community members make more effective decisions to help all students succeed.
