Evergreen School District Transfer Process

Present – Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Renewal of Interdistrict Transfer Requests
If your child is currently attending an Evergreen School District school on an Interdistrict Transfer (i.e. you reside in another school district), you will need to begin the renewal
process at your resident District Office. Interdistrict Transfers must be renewed yearly. If your child has not been approved for an Interdistrict Transfer, he/she will not be placed in a class. We will begin the review of renewals for the 2013-2014 school year during this time frame.

School Choice Transfer Requests
If you are a resident of the Evergreen School District but wish for your child to attend an Evergreen school other than your home school, you must complete a School Choice Transfer Request form. “School Choice” placements are dependent on space availability and are offered on a lottery system. Forms will be available at your neighborhood school and at the Evergreen School District office at 3188 Quimby Road after March 1, 2013. Completed requests will be accepted at the District Office during the request window: Monday, April 8 through Tuesday, April 30, 2013. Requests received after April 30, 2013 will not be included in the lottery. These requests will be put on a waiting list and placed if possible.

State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Announces
2012 California Distinguished Schools
SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today announced that 387 exemplary California public elementary schools were named 2012 California Distinguished Schools for their innovative education programs that encourage students to learn and help close the achievement gap.
“The schools we are recognizing today demonstrate the incredible commitment of California’s teachers, administrators, and school employees to provide a world-class education to every student, in spite of the financial hardships facing our state and our schools,” Torlakson said. “Their dedication is inspiring, and I applaud and admire their passion and persistence.”
The list of schools may be found on the California Department of Education Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/sr/cs/.
The 2012 California Distinguished Schools Program focuses on California’s students and their entitlement to an equitable and rigorous education. The program identifies and honors those schools that have demonstrated educational excellence for all students and progress in narrowing the achievement gap.
To be invited to apply for Distinguished School honors, schools must meet a variety of eligibility criteria including designated federal and state accountability measures based on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Academic Performance Index requirements.
Once schools are deemed eligible, the CDE invites them to apply to be recognized as a California Distinguished School. The application process consists of a written application, which includes a comprehensive description of two of the school's signature practices, and a county-led site validation review process, which validates the implementation of those signature practices.
Elementary and secondary schools (middle and high schools) are recognized in alternate years. This year focuses on elementary schools.
Schools earning the Distinguished School title agree to share their signature practices with other schools and serve as mentors to other educators who want to replicate their work. An updated searchable database of these Signature Practices will be available later this spring by the California Department of Education.
Schools selected for recognition will be honored as Distinguished Schools at award ceremonies where Torlakson will present each school with a 2012 Distinguished School plaque and flag. The event and awards are funded by donations from many of California’s most prominent corporations and statewide educational organizations.
Carolyn Clark Elementary School has received a grant from the City of San Jose to promote and encourage safe walking to school for our children.
The purpose of this program is to increase walking to school which will help ease traffic congestion, create a sense of community and foster a safer environment in the school zones. Over the next few weeks we will be working at the school and with the City of San Jose to develop a plan and implement this program at our school.
Our school is fortunate to have committed volunteers who have agreed to champion this wonderful program. With the help of the Walk n' Roll San Jose! program, we will receive:
Traffic safety education
Assistance in developing a walking program for our children
Education and encouragement to inspire and motivate children to walk
Assessment of walking routes
Traffic safety evaluation
Education awareness on the benefits of physical fitness.
We would like to thank Kathy Gomez, Mr,Martes and Arthi Aiyappan for their support in starting this program.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer in this program, please contact either one of the Walk n' Roll Carolyn Clark Volunteers:
Patti Andrade: email@example.com
Karin Snycerski: firstname.lastname@example.org

Parents of 6th graders - you will need to provide documentation that your child had a Tdap (whooping cough) booster shot given on or after 7 years old. Our goal is to have ALL 6th grade students provide this documentation before the end of May. If you haven’t done so already, check your child’s immunization record or call your physician to find out when they last had a Tdap vaccination. Once the shot is completed, bring in the immunization record to your child’s school they attend NOW so we can document that the requirement has been completed. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL SUMMER TO COMPLETE THIS REQUIREMENT.
