In an effort to reduce student stress and respond to the evolving instructional practices, the San Ramon Valley Unified School District revised its homework policy for the 2015-2016 school year in order to:

 

 

  • Limit the overall volume of homework;
  • Eliminate homework over breaks;
  • Develop a more effective system to communicate and implement the policy; and
  • Align with the Common Core State Standards and other legal requirements.

 

 

As a follow-up to this work, the District is surveying parents, teachers and middle and high school students on the effectiveness of the revised policy. Survey results will be used to help identify the best practices for homework and improve the implementation of our homework policy. The survey is anonymous and should take 5-10 minutes to complete. The survey closes on Tuesday, February 16. Below is a link to the parent survey:

 

 

2015-16 Homework Survey for Parents

 

 

If you have questions or concerns about your child’s homework, please contact your child’s teacher. If you have questions about the Homework Policy or this survey, please check the District’s homework policy page or contact Director of Instruction Jason Reimann at jreimann@srvusd.net.

On Tuesday, December 15, 2015, the San Ramon Valley Board of Education approved the 2016-2017 Instructional Calendar. This calendar ends the first semester before the Winter Break, shifting the calendar forward by one week.

 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District would like to thank the many people who worked on the calendar and provided valuable input through email and at Board of Education meetings. The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is fortunate to benefit from a community that engages in our processes for the betterment of all students.

  • Finals will take place Dec. 16 (A Period), 19-21 and May 26 (A Period), 30-31 and June 1.

Background

 

In the spring of 2014, SRVUSD formed an Instructional Calendar Exploration Committee to examine the community’s interests, and the positives and negatives of ending the first semester prior to Winter Break. From that process, the committee developed a draft calendar that was shared with staff, parents and the community.

 

After sending out the draft 2016-2017 Instructional Calendar that proposes shifting the first semester to end prior to the Winter Break (thus shifting the calendar forward by one week), the SRVUSD received public input both in favor and against the proposed change.  Over the summer, SRVUSD staff continued to gather input and research questions raised by the community. From this information staff developed a report that can be viewed by clicking the link below:

 

SRVUSD Instructional Calendar Exploration Report

 

After reading the report, community members were invited to provide input. Comments were collected and included in a presentation to the Board of Education on October 20, 2015 Board Meeting. The Board did  not take action on the calendar at this meeting, but heard public comments and held a discussion. 

 

After the calendar was bargained with SRVUSD's three employee groups, on December 15, 2015, the Board of Education approved the final 2016-2017 instructional calendar.

 

The following Questions and Answers were developed based on questions received during the process. Please click the link below to learn more about the instructional calendar exploration conversation.
