As I reflect on this past school year and my first as principal, I find that I have often been asked to describe the best part of my job. That answer is easy: the times I find the most enjoyable and rewarding are those that I spend with students celebrating their success. And, this year, like many that have come before, is no exception: there is a tremendous amount of success around here deserving of celebration.
In light of certain local and national events, I have recently fielded questions regarding the school’s preparedness for a campus emergency. Campus safety is, of course, always the top priority, and although John F. Kennedy is statistically one of the District’s safest schools, a ComprehensiveSchool Safety Plan (CSSP) exists to guide response to a variety of potential emergency situations. Every school site has a CSSP, and each plan is written by and is specific to the school site.
As many of you have asked for additional information and insight, I thought I would take time to address the Board’s December decision with regard to the start of the 2016-17 school year. It is well known that the Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) is one of a very few districts in the State to begin school after the Labor Day holiday.
