January-February  Message from the Superintendent:

Dear Coalinga-Huron Community,

                

As we prepare for mid-term exams at the half-year mark, many exciting changes and improvements are happening across the district.  Here are a few of them.

 

School Bus Routes

 

Finally after years of frustration, CHUSD has now added a bus route from Huron to Coalinga to reduce the overcrowding on buses.  We were able to hire and train several new bus drivers and as a result, have added an additional that will allow students to have room to sit comfortably for their rides to and from home. 

 

School Bus WiFi

In addition to a newly added bus route, we have just installed WiFi on one of our buses that travels between Huron and Coalinga to beta-test WiFi for students.  This is an exciting addition for our students because now that they have individual computers/tablets with WiFi capability, they may now use their bus-riding time to get homework done, research information and otherwise communicate with school personnel.  As soon as we are sure that the device works to our specifications and needs, we will install them in all district busses.  We hope to do this by early February.

 

My Access Writing Program

 

Now that teachers have had several months to implement the My Access Writing program with their students, the feedback from across the district has been wonderful!  Our teachers are finding creative and excellent ways to increase our students’ writing abilities from elementary through high level.  We anticipate that this value-added to their skill set will be reflected in the state testing to be done this Spring.

 

Feasibilty Studies of Coalinga and Huron

 

Several months ago the District contracted with Total School Solutions (TSS) of Fairfield, California, to conduct two studies concerning career technical education expansion feasibility across our District.  The studies were recently completed and TSS will present their findings at the School Board Meeting on Tuesday, January 19 at Huron Middle School.  We invite all Huron and Coalinga residents and students to attend the board meeting to hear and see the presentation. 

 

Preparation for State Testing

 

Site administrators are actively preparing and learning how to improve the testing environment for our students and their teachers as we approach the Spring window for State testing.  The District wants to insure that the technology that supports the testing works seamlessly, that students know how to navigate the test environment, and that teachers have afforded optimum preparation to students so that they show their very best work on the test.

 

Finally, I want to remind you that the District Office staff and your Board Members are working diligently to represent your interests in providing a truly excellent learning environment for your students.  Please remember that my door is always open and we welcome your questions, concerns and kudos too!

 

Sincerely,

 

Helen K. Foster, Ed.D.

Superintendent
