Kindergarten Readiness Packet
Parents as you plan your summer vacations, be aware that school begins on Tuesday, August 25th, 2015. As in the past, if your child does not attend the first 3 days of school, you child will be dropped from the school.
In that event, you will need to reenroll your student. A space at your residence school will not be held for your child. If there is not space at your residence school when you return, your child will be placed at the closest school based on space availability.

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is committed to keeping students at their resident schools as much as possible. To be fiscally and educationally responsible, the Board of Education has established Class Size Reduction (CSR) target averages, with a goal of 24:1 in TK-3 grades, and 30:1 average in the 4th and 5th grades. Unfortunately, students don’t move into the schools in groups of 24 and 30. When a school is growing or declining in enrollment, there may be an imbalance in a student population at a grade level. If there are more students in a grade level than classes determined for a school, there are two options:
Divert students to the nearest district school with space available, if the overage is a small number at a grade level, or
Create a combination/blended class, when the student numbers are large enough to warrant a new class.
In forming classes, there are many factors taken into consideration. Of prime importance is creating classes that benefit all students. The school is dedicated to creating classrooms that are academically and socially balanced to provide positive, challenging, and supportive learning environments for all students. Grade-level teachers and the principal review each student to determine the best class placement. When establishing classes, including combination/blended classes, teachers consider the students’ academic ability, social maturity and ability to work independently, as well as their relationships with peers, their special program needs, students’ prior school experiences, and the balance of boys and girls in the classes.
Although combination/blended classes are not unique to any school district, this may be new to your family. Should your child be selected for a combination class, please be aware of the following:
Teachers are selected for their ability to work with various age groups
Appropriate grade-level standards are taught to the students in both grades
Students are tested on school, district and state assessments for their grade level
Schedules are created to allow for small group instruction as frequently as possible
Students are provided daily opportunities to integrate with children in other classes of their grade level
The teacher plans and coordinates curriculum and activities with both grade-level teams of teachers to ensure consistent expectations and pacing
All of our schools are excellent and provide students with an outstanding education. Combination classes have performed academically as well or better than other classes when compared to state and local assessments. If you have questions regarding your child’s class placement this year, please talk to your child’s teacher or the school principal. Next year, Live Oak will have one combination class; a K/1 class. During my time at LO, we have had combo classes in grades 4/5, K/1, 1/2 and 2/3. The students have met with school success and enjoyed class.

New SRVUSD Volunteer Requirements
SRVUSD is implementing a new system for all adults who wish to volunteer on a school campus or drive/chaperone day and overnight field trips and athletic events. This new Volunteer Management System features a web-based software application that allows the District and all schools to better track and provide the appropriate level of clearance for school volunteers.
ALL adult volunteers will need to go through this new process. The District will NOT be asking parents to incur any of the costs associated with these clearance processes. For more information, and to begin the application process, click here.
