The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) Board of Education is seeking members for the Facilities Oversight and Advisory Committee (FOAC). Through this committee, the community as a whole is able to participate in the process of reviewing school facilities and of planning for the future. A key priority for the committee will be to provide advice to the Board, the Superintendent, and senior district management on current and future facilities issues affecting SRVUSD and their impact on education.

 

Committee Responsibilities

  1. Provide oversight of Measure D facilities bond projects and expenditures;
  2. Review current and future SRVUSD facilities and master plans and provide recommendations to the Board and district management on the priority of implementation;
  3. Review financial and performance audits and submit an annual report to the Board of Education;
  4. Review and provide recommendations related to district standards and long term maintenance;
  5. Review and provide recommendations on the development of a comprehensive list of facilities priorities that would require additional revenue sources;
  6. Review and recommend solutions for the proper protection of the community’s investment in maintaining school facilities.

FOAC Composition

The FOAC consists of at least seven (7) board-appointed members to serve for a term of at least two (2) years, without compensation, and for no more than three (3) consecutive terms.

Meet San Ramon Valley Unified School District’s new Superintendent Rick Schmitt at our “Coffee with the Superintendent”. At this coffee, the Superintendent will share a little about his priorities, the District’s “Framework for Excellence” and his philosophy.  What Mr. Schmitt most appreciates is hearing from parents and one of his priorities is two-way communication. He always walks away from these meetings having learned new, interesting and important information.

 

The Superintendent will be meeting with every school parent community this fall. If you can’t make this event, check out details of other meetings listed at http://www.srvusd.net/coffeeswithsupt.

Drop Off/Pick Up: Helpful Hints

Thank you to all the drivers at WRMS for showing patience and courtesy to other drivers. Here are some hints that may lighten traffic and stress on adults.

  1. There is only 1 right hand turn lane into the parking lot  from E. Branch Pkwy coming from Bollinger Canyon Pkwy (if unable to enter, go up to 2nd light, make u-turn, then left turn into parking lot).
  2. Arrive closer to 3PM- the parking lot is full by 2:40 and cars won't move until kids are dismissed at 2:45.
  3. Your children are safe while waiting in the shady areas in front of our school.
  4. Please carpool or encourage students to walk/ride a bike, scooter, or skateboard to and from school.WRMS_dropoff_pickup.gif

TECHNOLOGY

Dear Par­ent/Guardian,

As part of our commitment to ensuring that parents are aware of the technology we are using in our schools, I would like to share with you a list of the web-based programs used by both our school and District, including links to more information about these systems. Please know that over the past school year we have been reviewing the privacy policies of all of the programs that we use to ensure compliance with the Federal Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) and other federal and state laws, and that we are doing everything we can to protect our student information.

SRVUSD takes security very seriously and has therefore taken every precaution to secure our student and parent information. In order to secure your personally identifiable information we utilize several security and privacy measures to prevent loss, theft, or misuse of any student or parent data. Please see our district web site for information about systems in use district-wide (www.srvusd.net/techforparents).

In addition to the district programs, our school has adopted the use of the following:

  • NewsELA
  • NoRedInk
  • Ed1Stop/Learn360
  • Spelling City (6th grade only)
  • Membean (8th grade only)

 

In some cases, teachers may use other apps or web-based teaching tools. Staff are asked to read the privacy policies prior to using them. In addition, beginning this year, teachers will be informing parents when they are using something that is not on one of the lists above.

In some cases, parents will be asked to sign a permission form before the student uses the technology. This will take place when the program requests cer­tain personally identifiable infor­ma­tion, gen­er­ally the student’s name, must be pro­vided to the web site or application oper­a­tor.  Under state and fed­eral law, some web­sites and apps must pro­vide parental noti­fi­ca­tion and obtain parental con­sent before col­lect­ing per­sonal infor­ma­tion from chil­dren under the age of 13.  The district will not knowingly use, with or without your consent, any program or service if the program or service sells or shares personally identifiable information beyond what is necessary to operate the program or service, in the case of a merger or acquisition, or as required by law.

You can learn more about online privacy by visiting San Ramon Valley Unified School District’s Digital Citizenship webpage (http://www.digitalsrvusd.net/).

Sincerely,

David Bolin

Principal's Welcome Message

“There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.”
James A. Lovell, Apollo Astronaut


Staff, students, and parents partner together to make things happen at Windemere Ranch Middle School. Since we opened in August of 2005, our students have consistently achieved outstanding scores on state exams placing WRMS in the top one percent of California middle schools. We have twice been recognized as a California Distinguished School, once as a National Blue Ribbon School, and most recently this spring we were recognized as a California Gold Ribbon School.  I am proud that the learning environment here inspires students to do their very best.

Our website is both user-friendly and informative. If you are a parent or student, you will discover more detailed information when you log into your Schoolloop account using the login button located on the left of this homepage. One of my personal goals is to make certain this website is an effective communication tool so that everyone connected to WRMS is well informed about all the activities on campus. Please explore this site and look for updates and pertinent material. You will find that the quick links sidebar connects you to SRV district news and Common Core California State Standards.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me. I want to work together with you throughout your child’s time at WRMS to ensure the best possible experience for them. We are good at what we do because our combined efforts encourage students to meet, and even surpass, each and every one of their goals. I urge you to come and help us make things happen at this exceptional California middle school.


Warm Regards,
Dave Bolin, Principal
