To ensure that the district has a large pool of qualified substitutes available, our Human Resources department continually recruits substitute teachers and paraprofessionals.

The CA Department of Education has recently confirmed our school closure days on December 11th and 12th, 2014, as valid emergency days. This means that although school was cancelled for those two days due to severe weather conditions, the days meet the instructional time requirements set forth by law. Therefore, our current school year calendar will not be modified, and we will not be adding any replacement school days.
