As your new superintendent, I am privileged to welcome you and your student(s) to the 2016-2017 school year. Having grown up in the greater San Jose area, I am thrilled to be serving in a place I owe so much to. As a former history teacher, high school principal, assistant superintendent, and area superintendent, I understand that you have high expectations of our district. As specialists in high school education, the staff members of the Campbell Union High School District are focused on providing all students a challenging academic program within a safe and supportive environment.
Our schools are focused on developing students so that they are ready for life beyond high school. This year, we are continuing to focus on our district’s strategic goals of increasing the number of our students who graduate UC/CSU eligible, providing equitable opportunities for all of our students, and closing the opportunity gap by providing additional technology to students in the classroom and home.
We are proud to offer diverse opportunities through co-curricular activities that include athletics, performing arts, and social clubs as well as service learning, robotics, and career exploration internships. I encourage you to support your student’s involvement in these opportunities, as research shows that there is a positive correlation between academic success and involvement in co-curricular activities.
This November you will also have the opportunity to participate in a bond election to fund facility upgrades at all of our campuses. I encourage you to visit our website www.cuhsd.org to learn about the bond proposal as well as to find other breaking district news.
On behalf of our Board of Trustees, we thank you for entrusting your child’s educational preparation to our professionals. Together, we will prepare your student for an exciting future. I look forward to meeting many of you in the coming year.
Sincerely,Robert Bravo, Ed.D.
