Capistrano Unified Announces Next Superintendent

Kirsten Vital to Lead the Highest-Performing, Large School District in California

 

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO— Kirsten M. Vital has been named the new Superintendent of the Capistrano Unified School District, succeeding Dr. Joseph M. Farley who will retire on July 1, 2014, as the leader of Orange County’s second-largest school district.

The Board of Trustees made the selection of Ms. Vital following a closed session meeting on June 14, 2014. A contract is expected to be ratified on Wednesday, June 25 at the Board of Trustees’ regularly scheduled meeting.

Ms. Vital Superintendent comes to CUSD from Alameda Unified School District in Alameda, California, where she is Superintendent.

A seasoned educator, Ms. Vital has held key leadership positions in some of California’s largest districts, including Los Angeles Unified School District and Oakland Unified School District. Vital has been a teacher, an assistant principal, principal, and a college professor.

To find the ideal candidate, the Board of Trustees conducted a nationwide search. The search was guided by a detailed list of leadership criteria, a web-based survey, community forum, and responses from focus groups representing community and district stakeholders.

Board President John M. Alpay expressed his confidence in Vital, "We wanted to ensure that we had the right person for this very important role during this critical time in our District," he said. "Because of her demonstrated track record of success, the Board of Trustees is certain that Kirsten Vital is the right leader who will take our District to new heights of student achievement."

Retiring Superintendent Dr. Joseph M. Farley has been widely praised for his leadership of the District over the last four years. Capistrano Unified schools have consistently ranked in the top one percent of California’s public schools. Successfully weathering the most recent economic recession, the District’s fiscal position was certified as "positive" by the Orange County Department of Education.

With over 4,000 employees, the new Superintendent will take the helm of the largest employer in South Orange County.

Ms. Kirsten M. Vital

Sandy Hook Elementary School

Dear Viking Families, 

 

We are all saddened by the tragedy that happened last week at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. This tragedy has caused all of us to reflect on why this happened. What could have been done differently to prevent it? What can we do in our own school to make it safer? My number one job, before educating your child, is to ensure their safety. I want to reassure you that your child is safe at Viejo. 

 

On Monday morning, I contacted Paul Schaaf, Orange County Sheriff Deputy and School Resource Officer, at Capistrano Valley High School. Paul and I walked the Viejo campus together and reviewed our lockdown procedures and visited each room. Additionally, we spoke to each of the teachers and reviewed emergency procedures and exit routes for their students.

 

I’d also like to take this opportunity to review the check-in and check-out procedures for Viejo Elementary. It is important that we all work together to ensure the safety of each child in our school. It is very important that every person check-in at our front office every time they visit our campus, and check-out when they leave. Yes, it can take some additional time and it may be inconvenient, however, this simple procedure allows us to know who is on our campus and the reason for their visit. If you’re picking up your child early, please be prepared to show your picture id to our front office staff.

 

We have also asked our classroom teachers to send their daily attendance reports into the office by 8:15 a.m. each morning. We think this is extremely important because that way we can account for all of our students at the earliest possible time. This is invaluable should we have an emergency situation on our campus. Therefore, we ask that parents that are arriving tardy to school bring their child to the front office. All of our outside classroom doors will be locked after the start of school daily.

 

All the Viejo teachers, staff, students, and parents have asked what they can do to support the Sandy Hook Elementary School community. Tamara Bush, Viejo PTA President, has connected our teachers with a National PTA campaign to support the Sandy Hook Elementary children. As you may know, the students of Sandy Hook Elementary will be moving to a new school in January. The Sandy Hook Elementary School PTA would like us to help them welcome the students into their new school by creating a “Winter Wonderland”! They would like each of our students to create a snowflake that will be placed throughout their new school. Remember that each snowflake is unique! Therefore, Mrs. Bush and the Viejo PTA will be distributing white paper to the teachers for each of our students to create a snowflake for the students at Sandy Hook Elementary. We will be sending those snowflakes to the students at the end of this week.

 

Finally, I would like to attach a two-page article written for teachers and parents to help them support their children when a tragedy like Sandy Hook takes place. I hope it will be helpful to you and your family.

 

The Viejo School community’s thoughts and prayers are with the Sandy Hook Elementary School community. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me or drop by my office.

 

Sincerely,

Doug Kramer

Principal

No Regrets Parenting Seminar at Dana Hills H.S.
The Capistrano Unified Council of PTSAs (CUCPTSA) will be hosting Dr. Harley Rotbart, professor and vice chair of pediatrics at the University of Colorado and author of the national best selling book, No Regrets Parenting––Turning Long Days and Short Years into Cherished Moments with your Kids, Wednesday, February 20 at 6:45 p.m., in the Dana Hills High School Porthole Theater.
 
No Regrets Parenting is about time management with kids, from crib through college. But it's not like other "time management books." Those are geared for efficiency with kids rather than for intimacy with them, for organizing rather than optimizing the time parents spend with their kids. How to get everything done is not the same as how to make the time spent with kids more meaningful and memorable. This is a book about capturing the precious moments of parenting that otherwise are lost in the name of efficiency. It will guide you in taking the mundane, exhausting routines of parenthood and turning them into special parenting events. It's all about redefining "quality time."
 
Dr. Rotbart is Professor and Vice Chair of Pediatrics at the Univ. of Colorado, where he has been pediatric specialist for the past 30 years. He has been named to Best Doctors in America every year since 1996. He has more than 175 medical and scientific publications, and this is his 3rd book for parents. He serves on the Advisory Boards of Parents Magazine and Parents.com and regularly appears in major national media as an authority on child health. Visit his website: www.noregretsparenting.com. Questions? Please contact Michele Langham, malangham@att.net, or Gayle Paride, gparide@pacbell.net.
 
Location: Dana Hills High School
33333 Golden Lantern
Dana Point
 
Cost: $5.00 Advance Registration (Through February 16th)
$10.00 at the door
 
To RSVP, please send your check made payable to "CUCPTSA" to 2 San Simeon, Laguna Niguel, 92677.

TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN UPDATE: May 23, 2012

We are pleased to announce that CUSD is offering the Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program for fall of 2012.   To qualify, students must turn five years old Nov. 2-Dec. 2, 2012.    TK is being offered to students who, due to the kindergarten age rollback, miss the cutoff to enter kindergarten.   This will be the first year of a two-year kindergarten program provided for in the SB 1381 legislation or the Kindergarten Readiness Act 2010. Parents will need to transport their children.  At the end of the TK year, students will matriculate to their home schools for regular kindergarten.

To pre-register for the program, go to CUSD’s website under Parent Links, Transitional Kindergarten and Intent to Register.  The Intent to Register may be emailed directly to the District or delivered to the District office.  Pre-registered students will be assigned to one of three sites throughout the District, Crown Valley, Benedict and Bathgate Elementary Schools.  If you have any questions, please call or email Becky West at bwest@capousd.org  or 949-234-9261.

Important Parent Portal Registration Information- sign- up by June 22!!

Dear Parents:

The CUSD Parent Portal is now available for parents of all current K-12 students.  We strongly encourage you to register for a Parent Portal account before school offices close in June, so you are able to take advantage of the new online re-registration system for the 2012-13 school year.   When the window opens in August, parents with portal accounts will have the ability to use this online system for re-registration, rather than completing the large, traditional paper packet. Parents will also have the ability at any time during the year to update student demographic and emergency contact records, view real-time daily attendance reports, print report cards and transcripts and also be able to download important documents directly from the portal. 

Letters were mailed home the week of February 13 to parents of secondary students with specific information related to Parent Portal account creation. Parents of elementary students received their letters during parent conferences.  The information in the letter includes your student’s ID, home phone, and a unique verification code which will be needed during the portal registration process.  Using the information from the letter, simply logon to abi.capousd.org where you will find directions and a link for creating your Parent Portal account.  There is also a portal link on each school’s homepage. A HELP link is available at abi.capousd.org if you have questions during the registration process.  If you have lost your letter, please contact your school office before the last day of school.

SCHOOLS CLOSED ON FRIDAY DUE TO POWER OUTAGE

All schools in the Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) will be closed on Friday, Sept. 9, 2011, due to the power outage affecting Southern Orange and San Diego counties.

The District, like many school districts serviced by San Diego Gas and Electric, has decided to cancel classes for its students. A decision regarding Friday evening sporting events has not yet been made.

“We have no assurance that power will be restored by the time school begins tomorrow morning, and local emergency jurisdictions have advised the District to suspend classes until power is restored,” Superintendent Joe Farley said. “We are sorry for the obvious inconvenience to our working families, but it is clearly not proper to have students in school without electricity to power key systems including lights, refrigeration, and computers.”

The decision to close schools was made for a number of reasons, including the lack of power at school sites and the difficulty many staff members will have commuting to work from their homes in Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties. Only the CUSD staff members who have been specifically notified should report to work on Friday, Sept. 9.

Power is expected to be restored in time for school on Monday. For more information, please call the District’s Hotline at (949) 234-5575, which will be open at 7 a.m. or visit the District website at www.capousd.org.
