|Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community Members:
year, the San Bernardino City Unified School District has embarked on a
mission to take our Community Engagement Plan to a new level and use it
as a catalyst for hope and increased student engagement.
View the 2015-16 Community Engagement Plan video HERE.
Hope Happen is not just our new District motto, it is the mission of
every adult who works in the District. We fully believe in these four
key beliefs* about hope.
- Hope matters
- Hope is a choice
- Hope can be learned
- Hope can be shared with others
2014 State of America’s Schools report shows that students who strongly
agree with the following statements are 30 times more likely to be
engaged at school:
- My school is committed to building the strengths in each student.
- I have at least one teacher who makes me excited about the future.
San Bernardino City Unified School District will use the nine
strategies of the Community Engagement Plan detailed in this publication
to build the strengths in each student and inspire their excitement
about the future. I am certain that by living our motto of Making Hope
Happen, we will change our community and give children in San Bernardino
and Highland a promising future.
| Dale Marsden, Ed.D.
