First Grade Butterfly Release

On Monday April 11th, our first graders released their Painted Lady Butterflies. Over the past few weeks, we have studied the life cycle of the butterfly and watched the amazing transformation of the caterpillars into butterflies. Everyone was thrilled to watch them go free and our students thoroughly enjoyed this hands-on learning experience.
Here are some pictures and a video of the event!

Important Notice for Parents Regarding Disclosure of Student Records

For parents of students in general and special education:

In April 2012, two organizations filed a lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE). The court has ordered the CDE to share data that contain student personally identifiable information. None of this information may be used outside the context of this lawsuit; no student’s identifying records will be disclosed to the public. A special magistrate has been appointed by the court to ensure that student information is shared only with a small number of legal staff who have been authorized by the court.

But the CDE is obligated to inform the parent or student that the court has ordered it to produce documents and/or data that includes those individuals’ personally identifiable information and that such persons may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure. The CDE is requesting that school districts post the following link to CDE’s website www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase from February 1, 2016, through April 1, 2016.

This link has a form for parents to submit if they don't want their student's data shared by the California Department of Education. The form must be mailed directly to the court by April 1, 2016.

Aviso Importante para los Padres con Respecto a la Divulgación de los Expedientes de los Alumnos

Para los padres de alumnos de educación general y de educación especial:

En abril de 2012, dos organizaciones presentaron una demanda judicial contra el Departamento de Educación de California (CDE). El tribunal ha ordenado al CDE que comparta datos que contienen información personalmente identificable de los alumnos. Ninguna de esta información puede usarse fuera del contexto de esta demanda judicial; ningún expediente que identifique a los alumnos será revelado al público. Un magistrado especial ha sido designado por la corte para asegurar que la información es compartida sólo con un pequeño número de personal jurídico que ha sido autorizado por el Tribunal.

Pero el CDE tiene la obligación de informar a los padres o alumnos que el tribunal le ha ordenado que presente documentos y/o datos que incluyen dicha información individual personalmente identificable y que dichas personas pueden objetar directamente al tribunal sobre esta revelación. El CDE le está solicitando a los Distritos Escolares que hagan público el siguiente enlace (link) al sitio Web del CDE www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase desde el 1ero de febrero de 2016 hasta el 1ero de abril de 2016.

Este enlace (link) tiene un formulario para que presenten los padres, si es que no quieren que el Departamento de Educación de California comparta la información de sus hijos. El formulario debe enviarse directamente al tribunal para el 1ero de abril de 2016.
