Championed by Superintendent Ghysels and facilitated by Assistant Superintendent Burmeister and school principals, MPCSD is engaged in a four-month long process from August to December to identify our “Strategic Directions” for the next six years. The process began with an interactive “working session” of the Board and District Leadership Team on August 26. The Strategic Directions will become the foundation of the district’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) -- the new accountability plan required by the state. Joining the two affords us a great opportunity to streamline and focus districtwide. The open input window closed on November 6; however, if you would like to provide additional perspective, please email Assistant Superintendent Erik Burmeister at email@example.com. Strategic Directions will be approved at the December 8 Board meeting. The LCAP will be approved in June 2016. If you have any questions about the Strategic Directions or LCAP process, please don’t hesitate to email Superintendent Ghysels and/or Assistant Superintendent Burmeister.

One of the high impact programs at Hillview is Character Education for 7th and 8th graders on topics like Stress Management, Empathy and Communication, and Bullying Prevention. These classes are moderated by parent volunteers and provide a meaningful volunteer opportunity to educate our kids and demonstrate excellent adult role models. We need 45 parent volunteers starting December 9 to make this program a success, so please consider signing up. It's very easy to be a moderator and you will be given a script and instruction in advance. Please read more info here on the sign up sheet.
