Irvine Family Resource Center
IUSD parents and families of K-12 children are encouraged to learn more about positive parenting classes and effective support groups offered through the Irvine Family Resource Center. These courses, scheduled throughout the year, provide strategies for eliminating power struggles, teaching critical life skills, promoting responsibility and encouraging problem-solving and good behavior.
Morning and evening sessions are available. To learn more about the center’s programs, click here. For additional questions, contact Susan Holt at 949-936-7502.
Summer School for grades nine through 12
The Irvine Unified School District plans to offer this year’s Summer School program for grades nine through 12 at Woodbridge High School, with courses running from June 24 through Aug. 2.
IUSD has so far managed to preserve this valuable educational opportunity by asking for contributions from participating families, but donations are not required to participate. Please note, however, that insufficient enrollment and/or insufficient funding may result in course cancellations.
Registration materials will be available at each high school – and online – the week of April 8. For details on this program, as well as registration information and a list of frequently asked questions, click here. To check out the Summer School course catalog for 2013, click here.
California Common Core
Parents seeking to learn more about the new California Common Core instructional standards attended a special presentation led by a trio of IUSD educators in March.
But don’t worry if you missed it. You can still watch Assistant Superintendent Cassie Parham, Math and Science Coordinator Mark Sontag and District Literacy Specialist Kathleen Cooke discuss how and why the standards came into existence, how Smarter Balanced Assessments will be structured and the major instructional shifts that will occur as schools begin implementation.
