School Spotlight

The students of Conejo Valley High School is the school chosen to receive the honors this month. CVHS is located adjacent to the district office but you'd never know it. The students there are so polite and hardworking. On given day, you'll find students asking you about your day or engaging in conversation about what goes on at the district office. Many of them are eager to have their voice heard and their passion shows every time you speak with them. Students constantly talk about how much their Assistant Principal, Sean MacDonald means to their school.

December Is The Month Of Inclusivity.

Inclusive Schools week is (December 5 - 9,2022), where we celebrate our commitment to provide a supportive and quality education for all students. Inclusive School’s week is celebrated annually the first full week of December. This year’s theme is “Unity Within Our Community- Inclusion Around the World.” This is an opportune time to celebrate and build upon our inclusive practices.

School leaders are encouraged to tweet your school’s inclusive activities with hashtag #conejoforward and #ISW2022 or email them to special education leadership. Thank you to those that have already started posting these wonderful activities!

Below are some resources that may be helpful as you celebrate and practice inclusion in your schools and classrooms.
