NEWCOMB ACHIEVEMENT DATA PROGRESS

On the state SBAC testing last spring, students in grades 3-8 at Newcomb showed steady improvement.  With a 3% increase in our English/Language Arts scores, and a 4% increase in Math, Newcomb's overall proficiency exceeded other K-8 schools in our district.  In grades K-5, our Newcomb students earned the highest overall proficiency rate in the district on the Benchmark Book Assessment of Reading.  Keep up the great work, Spartans!

School Accountability Report Card (SARC)

Dear Parents:
 
State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the
report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child’s school.
 
We invite you to view the SARC by visiting the Long Beach Unified School District website at
www.lbschools.net and following the below instructions.
 
1. Hover over Schools
2. Click Accountability Reports
3. Select a school from the appropriate drop down menu and click GO!
 
 
 
If you do not wish to use a computer, feel free to visit the office of any school and ask for a copy.
 
Sincerely,
 
Christopher Borunda

Basic Services -- LCAP Highlights 

 

Dear Friends,

 

Two weeks ago, we began sharing with you some highlights of our Local Control and Accountability Plan, or LCAP.  We began with a publication titled Academic Excellence.  Today we continue our series of highlights with Basic Services – A Foundation for Excellence.

 

If the title links to the above documents don’t work, you can also find them at lbschools.net under the Local Control Funding section.

 

In the coming weeks, we will share additional highlights of the LCAP.

 

Best regards,

Chris

Servicios Básicos -- Lo Destacado del LCAP

 

Estimados Amigos,

 

Hace dos semanas empezamos a compartir con ustedes algunos puntos destacados de nuestro Plan de Control y Responsabilidad Local o LCAP.  Empezamos con una publicación titulada Excelencia Académica.  El día de hoy seguimos con nuestra serie de los aspectos destacados con Servicios Básicos – La Fundación para la Excelencia.

 

Si los enlaces con los títulos no funcionan, usted también puede encontrarlos en lbschools.net bajo la sección “Local Control Funding.”

 

En las próximas semanas, compartiremos puntos adicionales del LCAP.

 

Mis mejores deseos,

Chris

Results of the 2017-2018 School of Choice Process for current eighth grade students will be sent home via US Mail this week. Results will also be visible in ParentVue beginning Friday, February 16, at 5:00pm.

 

Please remember, enrollment is not complete until you intend to a pathway that you have been accepted to. Failure to intend (via ParentVue) and certify by the deadline of 11:59pm Friday, February 23, 2018, can result in the loss of that acceptance.

 

After viewing your results, if you wish to file an appeal, a link to the form, as well as a paper copy will be available on our website. These forms can also be obtained from your Middle School or K8 Office.

 

We strongly recommend intending to a pathway while the appeals are being reviewed, as there is no guarantee of an appeal being granted.

 

For this year, the deadline to file an appeal is the close of business on March 16, 2018. Following that, the next opportunity to apply for a transfer will be April 1, 2019, through the High School Office.

 

If you have any questions, please call the High School Choice Helpline at (562) 997-8306.

Campus Supervision

The campus will open at 7:15 a.m. for students eating breakfast in the cafeteria.  The playground will open at 7:40 a.m.  The afterschool elementary playground hours are 2:05 pm - 3:00 pm.  On early Thursdays, playground supervision begins at 1:30 pm. It's imperative that all students are picked up from school by 3:00 pm as there is NO SUPERVISION after 3:00 pm.  Middle school students must be involved in a supervised after school club or sport if they remain on campus. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
