Congratulations to the staff at Standard Middle School for being selected as a 2020-2021 School To Watch! The Schools To Watch (STW) is a state program that focuses on school improvement efforts characterized by a continuous trajectory toward success. The reviewers of the program recognize the Standard Middle School for being developmentally responsive and socially equitable. The official STW reviewer, former Executive Director of the California League of Schools, Mr. Scott Steele, stated that he was impressed with the multiple student support programs in place, the extensive electives offered, and the caring and supportive culture of the campus. This is a very big honor for the staff at SMS, as well as validation and recognition of the many years of hard work the staff members have put in to create the plethora of student support programs, such as Circle of Friends, ATS, PBIS, MTSS, SSA, AAA Saturday, BOOST Club, etc. Standard Middle School is the only school in California receiving this initial recognition in 2020-2021. To maintain this recognition, SMS will need to reapply every three years. Well done, SMS!

Kudos to the hard working maintenance staff for assembling 32 new student benches, eight for each school. Each bench is custom colored and branded with school mascot to match new tables and trash cans. #SSDWeCare

Media headlines are misleading – schools are not reopening; they are transitioning to in-person instruction. We will continue utilizing Distance Learning as our instructional model for most students, continue to maintain in-person cohorts for special day classes, and continue to work with staff to bring back more cohorts of students on campus as can safely be implemented.

The new Stay Home Order will go into effect tomorrow, Dec. 5, but unlike the last state shut down, this time schools are exempted. Standard School District will continue to provide in-person instruction to students with disabilities in six established cohort classes.
