Our Strategic Planning Process

Dear Community Members,

I am pleased to share with you that after nine months of listening, learning and collecting input from a diverse group that represents the larger community of ERUSD, we have the formal draft of the 2018-2023 ERUSD Strategic Plan. I would like to share with you some of the highlights of our process:

From September until December of 2017, we held Community Forums at different school sites. The Community Forums were structured in such a way that allowed participants to discuss and engage in a constructive dialogue about the areas to be addressed in the plan. The design of these Forums followed a research-based approach to ensure all participants had the opportunity to hear and learn from each other's perspective. From January until March of 2018, we held individual meetings to gather the perspective of community partners. During this time, we also gathered the perspective of school and central office administrators.

Rio Vista Elementary Update

Yesterday afternoon, district staff were performing routine maintenance work with a tractor on the grounds of Rio Vista Elementary School. In the course of this work, it appears the tractor’s throttle malfunctioned, causing the tractor’s bucket to go through a classroom’s bay window. We were notified almost immediately thereafter at 1:15 p.m. Although students were in the affected classroom, none were injured and all were removed from the classroom. The safety of our students is our absolute first priority, and we have taken steps to ensure that.
