    superintendent's monthly message

    MUSD Community,

    Welcome back, as we all jump feet first into 2019!  I am hopeful the recent break provided you an opportunity to spend time with family and friends and also slow down, even if just for a few moments.

    It was great to see our staff return on Monday, and even better to see our students back in classes today!  As we embark on 2019, we are also opening the second semester of our school year. This always seems to spark a number of events which remind us how quickly the second half of the school year goes.  In many cases, we are simultaneously working to ensure the rest of this year is successful for students and staff while also gradually building the foundation for the 2019-2020 school year.

    The rapid pace of the second semester seems to always ring true for students and families who are in transition grades.  For example, our 5th-grade students have just over 90 school days before junior high, our 8th graders have that much time before they enter high school, and of course, our seniors are entering their last semester of high school.  My hope for each of our students and families is that they can find the time to appreciate these experiences and also acknowledge how much hard work they’ve put into being successful.

    Our work to build safe school climates continues each month, and it remains at the forefront of work in MUSD.  On January 7th, our classified staff spent the day in professional development sessions on various topics which support their overall growth and success.  During the morning session, we met with classified employees in a large group setting to further review student safety matters, emergency response protocols, and the implementation of Sandy Hook Promise programs in MUSD.

    This week, our administrators will receive training in preparation for the upcoming launch of the Say Something - Anonymous Reporting System, provided to MUSD at no cost by the Sandy Hook Promise.  We will launch this program in early spring; you’ll be receiving much more information regarding how the system works and how students, staff, parents, or community members can access the system. In short, this is a program which allows individuals to report any information regarding a potential threat to the safety of our staff and students, through either a web-based interface, a phone number, or via an app on your phone.  Based on the severity of the potential danger, the information will then be sent to our local police department or to school and district administration. As always, we are grateful for the cooperation of the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office and the Martinez Police Department in making the Say Something program possible.

     

     

    In the coming months, I look forward to sharing with our community exciting announcements of who will be selected as the classified employee of the year and the teacher of the year for Martinez Unified in 2019.  We are very lucky to have such talented and dedicated individuals working to serve our students each and every day. Certainly, there is justification that each of our teachers and classified support staff is deserving of special awards.  However, is it always nice to shine a bright spotlight each year and learn more about what makes each individual so successful in their craft. Each of the honorees selected from MUSD will also go on to represent our district in a countywide selection process.

    In closing, I'd like to the thank Chief Technology Officer, Max Eissler, for his many years of service to the students and staff of MUSD. Max will be moving to Dublin Unified to become their Chief Technology Officer. We wish him the best of luck on his continued journey. We will be recruiting for this position in the immediate future. 

    Please be sure you review the rest of our newsletter for important information, announcements, and exciting events. 

     

    Sincerely, 

    CJ Cammack, Superintendent
