Common Core Family Math night a success!

Several GUSD parents had the opportunity to engage in rich dialogue as they learned about the new Common Core State Standards in Math together on March 26th. Families received general information at an opening session and then enoyed several interactive math lessons planned by our own teachers: Ms. Velasquez (1st grade), Mr. Baltes (2nd grade), Ms. Ramos (6th grade), Ms. Ashby (GHS physics), Mr. Hileman (GHS math), Mr. Keaton (K-12 Migrant dept), Ms. Gilmore (K-4), and Mrs. Galvan (K-12). Special thanks to our community for coming to our event and to the administrative team who were present to support us: Ms. McFarland-Camacho, Mr. Velasquez, Ms. Barba, and Mr. Purnsley and to our Migrant team who facilitated the event: Ms. Vallejo, Ms. Perez, Ms. Lopez, and Ms. Calderon.

Our last event was on February 26th and focused on language arts and literacy K-12.

Please join us for our next K-12 Family event on April 16 from 6:00-8:00pm in the La Gloria Cafeteria when we learn about technology and science together!


Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) update

Thank you to all of the community members, parents, staff and students who took time to complete our short LCAP survey.  The survey is now closed. District staff will be reviewing the information provided and a summary report will be posted soon.  Please stay tuned for future information regarding Gonzales Unified's LCAP.  This plan must be placed on the Regular Board Meeting agenda to allow for public comment before it is approved and submitted to the County Office in June.  

Again, thank you for your continued support and interest in working together to ensure that our Gonzales students have the best educational experience possible.
