WUSD Board Brief for February 2019
Before and After School Care - The Washington Unified School District Board of Trustees have been committed to and investigating options for expanding before and after school child care services for our families for the 2019-2020 school year. At the February 28, 2019 regularly scheduled meeting, the Board of Trustees approved expansion of before and after school care for our schools through YMCA and Champions. The District's ASES Program will also continue to provide after school care at the current five locations.

We are currently meeting with both YMCA and Champions on the process needed for our families to sign up for services based on their needs of next school year. Please be on the lookout for more information and how to sign up in the very near future.

Teaching and Learning - The District is in receipt of a grant to provide additional support to our academic progress. The Board of Trustees approved the continued services and work of standards aligned instruction through Rigorous Curriculum Design (ICLE) and continued training and services from Julie Webb for Guided Reading instruction. Our teachers and administration have been working hard in these areas to address the academic needs of our students. We are grateful for these one-time additional resources to support our students.

Facilities - There will be a lot of summer work on our facilities. The Bryte campus will be completed with the modernization of classrooms for a BioMedical CTE (Career Technical Education) pathway. In addition, the Middle College High School will be relocating to the completed Bryte campus for the next school year. The Fallbrook campus will be under construction starting this summer for a modernization of the entire school for Westmore Oaks School to relocate for the 2020-2021 school year.
