Welcome on behalf of our board of education to our returning school staff, family, and parents, and to those new to our district! Our Baker Valley Unified school team is enthusiastic, caring, and responsive to our students and we are passionate about working together to improve student outcomes.
Each and every student will be offered a holistic and balanced approach. We are building a positive, safe and empowering learning environment by incorporating Second Step, a social and emotional program that will facilitate students’ SEL competencies.
Learning continues to be our priority. Our teachers receive customized training from our county office of education to improve and promote academic achievement. This year we are adding i-Ready, a program that makes the promise of differentiated instruction a practical reality for teachers and students.
Communication is critical. Please get involved in your child’s education. They need their sleep and they need to be here each and every day. The California Dashboard is monitoring their attendance, and research shows missing just 10% of their school year is a primary cause of poor academic achievement. We are working hard to improve our attendance and need your partnership.
Oasis in the Desert – Our tiny, remote and rural district is truly “an oasis in the desert.” We have the best in technology, support, programs, and staffing. We are still fortunate in having the feel and climate of a small town and enjoy getting to know and learn about our families that live here. It is no easy task to live and work in a remote area but what it does require, is that those that are here must be invested in the community to survive and thrive.
Monitoring all parts of your child’s learning experience is my task and privilege. I do so with care and honor with a well-qualified team to support our vision for 2020, and the vision is clear, we want each and every child to be successful.
Every person on our school team has been working hard over the summer to make 2019-2020 a great year! Please come and join us in our journey, you are certainly
In your service,
