Athletics Update

Trustees received an update from the Associate Superintendent of Student Services and Human Resources Dorene Basuino. Ms. Basuino’s presentation, which is located here, was developed with input from the athletic directors at each school site, and included the following:

  • CDPH & CIF Guidelines
  • CIF & PAL Updates
  • Sports Tiers and Transportation
  • Considerations and Recommendations

After discussion, Trustees agreed to allow JUHSD athletes participate in Season 2 PAL and football.

Serramonte Del Rey

The Board approved a motion to move forward with a 7-11 Committee to consider leasing the property at Serramonte Del Rey. An advisory committee will be recruited to analyze the educational needs of our community and determine whether the JUHSD has surplus space. The 7-11 committee is an advisory committee that cannot take action, but will advise the Board.

Background: The JUHSD is building faculty and staff housing at Serramonte Del Rey. The District is exploring the possibility of leasing the surrounding property to developers to develop a neighborhood with hiking trails, parks, and shopping. All funds from the lease would go directly into District funding in support of student educational programs. You can learn more about that vision by visiting

JHS Schedule Change

In this discussion item, Jefferson High School students and staff presented their proposal to change the school's schedule starting in 21-22 from a traditional model to a 4x4 model to address and serve the diverse needs of their students. View the full presentation here.

Student of the Month

The JUHSD Student of the Month Program recognizes the outstanding achievements of our students at school and in the community. The student of the Month is selected by teachers and administrators for exemplifying an outstanding degree of academic achievement, leadership and community consciousness. Each year, only 6 students receive this honor out of the 4,300 students in our district.

Congratulations to Jessica Zhao, Senior at Oceana High School. She is currently the Student President of the Oceana High School’s ASB, and has achieved many outstanding accomplishments as an Oceana student. Please read more about Jessica’s impressive commitment to the school community here.
