The San Ramon Valley Unified School District strives to ensure that we provide the tools necessary to ensure that each student has access to current world-class curriculum and instruction aligned to state standards. In recognizing this important need, for the 2019-2020 school year, the SRVUSD adjusted the bell schedules to provide teachers the time to engage in this valuable work.

 

We understand that this is a change in practice that may lead to some concerns. The following Q&A was developed to support our community in understanding the new bell schedule. If you have additional questions, please reach out to your child’s principal or contact communications@srvusd.net.


 

FAQ Around Extra Prep and Changes in Bell Schedule


 

Q. What will the prep time be used for?

  1. This prep time will provide our teachers opportunities to prepare fresh lessons, collaborate with colleagues, engage in professional development, assess student work, plus so much more.

 

Q. How do SRVUSD’s instructional minutes compare to the State’s requirements?

  1. The state requires a minimum number of instructional minutes, however our district makes sure that we exceed the state’s minimum requirements for all elementary students.

 

Q. Why are we taking 5 minutes off of Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday?

  1. Adjusting instructional minutes is complicated. We have to account for both instructional minutes and contract requirements. In order to acquire the cumulative total time for the additional prep, and minimize the impact on students, we took a small amount of time from each of the four days, plus instructional minutes from Wednesday. Rest assured we are meeting and exceeding the state required minimum instructional minutes. Please see the chart above.

 

Q. How does this change affect the Wednesday lunch and how will schools ensure students have enough time to eat?

  1. We are aware that parents have concerns regarding lunch. Principals will ensure that students have adequate breaks throughout the day and enough time to eat their lunch. They are working on their bell schedules now and will take that into account in their planning.

 

Q. When will I be able to see the revised bell schedule for next year?

  1. Principals are working on bell schedules now and will have a finalized version ready for their communities before the end of the school year.

 

Q. Will TK, K teachers and prep teachers receive the extra prep?

  1. Yes, all certificated elementary teachers will receive the extra prep.  This additional prep time is consistent across the district. ALL elementary educators will have prep at the same time as the other colleagues at their site so that they can collaborate with one another.

 

Q. When will the prep time be scheduled at my site?  

  1. There are 3 bell schedules for our elementary sites across the district.  The prep time at each site will be dependent upon which bell schedule applies to that site.

 

Q. How will this affect the TRAFFIX congestion relief bus program?  

  1. The district has communicated with TRAFFIX and they will be changing their schedules accordingly.

Parents who live outside the boundaries of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District now have the opportunity to seek interdistrict transfers to enroll their children at SRVUSD schools. SRVUSD has streamlined the enrollment request process for eligible families who reside in other Bay Area communities, reducing the stress of finding a high-performing new school. 

 

First, a family must obtain an interdistrict transfer approval document from its home school district. Second, if the student is in middle school or high school, SRVUSD will need to review transcripts, discipline records and attendance records from the previous school.

 

Transfer requests are approved based on space availability and a review of transcripts, discipline and attendance records.

 

In some cases, a family’s home school district will send the documentation to SRVUSD when a parent makes the transfer request. In a few other cases, the family will have to handle the paperwork.

 

Families interested in transferring their children to SRVUSD should check with their home school districts to begin the process.

 

SRVUSD is one of California’s top performing school districts. More than 98 percent of its students graduate from high school, and 95 percent of those grads plan to attend college, with 71 percent attending a four-year university. Student attendance rate is 97 percent at SRVUSD.

 

Academic success is a tradition at SRVUSD schools – a tradition well known to university admissions officers. In college placement exams, SRVUSD students rank exceptionally high, with 88 percent scoring 21 or higher on the ACT and 83 percent scoring 1,500 or better on the SAT.  Almost 40 percent of SRVUSD students enroll in Advanced Placement classes, and 88 percent earn at least a Grade 3 on AP exams.

 

The SRVUSD experience doesn’t stop at college preparedness. The district offers more than 450 sections of performing arts classes. And younger children are exposed to fun ways to learn, with a science lab and science classroom specialist available at SRVUSD elementary schools.

 

SRVUSD is built for success in the 21st century, with 100 percent of its classrooms and other learning spaces updated with wireless connectivity. The district has more than 6,400 Apple laptops for students, along with more than 3,000 PCs and over 2,000 Chromebooks. SRVUSD students also have access to more than 5,600 iPads and Android tablets.

 

SRVUSD has approximately 32,000 students in 36 schools, taught and cared for by 3,500 dedicated employees.
