Continuous Improvement Survey
Dear IUSD Parent:
Please take just a few minutes to complete our Irvine Unified School District Continuous Improvement Survey. This survey was developed by our Continuous Improvement Council, a group of teachers, parents, students and administrators that convenes annually to discuss our instructional program and to identify where we need to focus our future efforts. The mission of the Council is to ensure that we provide the highest quality educational experience we can envision by employing the guiding principles and practices outlined in our Continuous Improvement Document. To understand how effectively we are implementing our Continuous Improvement Efforts, we are asking for your feedback, so that we can reflect on our strengths and our continued areas for growth.
The link below is for our parent survey. Students will complete the survey at school through their PE classes. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes and needs to be submitted by Friday, January 9, 2015. While we will be looking at trends and themes surfaced by this data, individual responses to this survey are anonymous and will be kept strictly confidential. Thank you for providing feedback that will help to guide our district forward.
Assistant Superintendent Education Services
Irvine Unified School District
Dear Sierra Vista Middle School Parents,
Have you checked your mailbox lately? Each family in IUSD was sent a letter recently asking for your support, in any amount, for Irvine Public Schools Foundation’s Annual Campaign. Last month, IUSD Superintendent Terry Walker also sent an email to families supporting this effort and I would like to join him in encouraging participation from all Sierra Vista families.
The impact to our school from IPSF funds cannot be overstated. Because of IPSF funding, we are able to add additional sections of core classes, effectively reducing class size, as well as additional hours for our school nurses and athletic trainers to care for our students. IPSF helps to provide funding for Naviance for college and career planning and offers enrichment opportunities such as the Honors Concert, UCI Day and summer programs.
Funds raised by the end of this year will determine what programs can be offered in the next school year. All donations to IPSF’s Annual Campaign will be matched by the City of Irvine, doubling your donation. Gifts in any amount are greatly appreciated, but a $100 gift from each IUSD family would ensure that the full amount of available matching funds is raised and that these critical programs can continue.
IPSF is the only organization that can raise funds to add teachers to our classrooms. Please join me in becoming a supporter of IPSF so that we can continue to provide a world class education for your student, and every student. Return the donation form you received with your letter or go online to make a donation at www.ipsf.net by December 31.
Thank you for your support.
Lynn Matassarin, Ed. D.
P.S. – Not only will The City of Irvine match each donation dollar for dollar, your employer may provide an additional match. Check with your HR department or go to https://doublethedonation.com/ipsf!
