  • Letter from the Superintendent:


    October 2014

    Dear Families and Community Members,


    During the month of October, we recognize National Bully Prevention Month.  Each year, district and site strategic plans are developed to include emphasis on school climate by stating specific strategies and programs implemented in our schools.  Bully prevention and intervention is addressed through Second Steps and Steps to Respect classroom lessons, in addition to many other programs geared at ensuring students feel safe and respected at school. Please see the link under the “For Parents” channel on our website for more information on bully prevention and intervention.

    Our district staff has explored research in happiness and growth mindset and how these principles have a positive impact on student learning and achievement.  As a result, our students are learning that happiness, perseverance, and effort play a positive role when they solve problems, achieve in academics, and gain success in the world around them. To learn how you can apply some of these same ideas at home, the link below shares 15 Secrets of Happy Families: http://www.webmd.com/parenting/features/15-secrets-to-have-a-happy-family.   

    As I mentioned in my August newsletter, we are implementing revised standards-based progress reports this year. The new reports are aligned to our state’s standards and represent student achievement on a 4-point proficiency scale. Parents are encouraged to view our informational video about the progress reports prior to attending parent-teacher conferences. The video is posted on our district website at this link: http://www.sbsd.k12.ca.us/site/Default.aspx?PageID=5514

    We are also hosting three regional informational meetings about the revised progress reports. The meetings will be held at Skyline on October 15, at Solana Pacific on October 16, and at Solana Ranch on October 21, 2014. The meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m.

    Students have begun their renewable energy unit of study in Discovery Labs.  Please ask your child about their new discoveries over the next month.  I would like to thank our parents and Solana Beach Schools Foundation for their support of this important new program!


    Best regards,


    Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.
