This week Emma Kratzberg is the OC Varsity Athlete of the week (http://www.ocvarsity.com/articles/kratzberg-83483-newport-hills.html ) after claiming 3 titles at last weekend's OC Championships and she was named Sprinter/Hurdler of the meet. She won the 100 hurdles in 14.54, the 400 in 55.95 improving her NHHS record, & the 300H 43.03 setting the Orange County Championships meet record (and setting a new PR)!

 

         A lot of people missed earlier in the season (due to it happening over Spring Break) when she was named the Daily Pilot athlete of the week on April 8th (http://www.latimes.com/socal/daily-pilot/sports/tn-dpt-sp-0409-emma-kratzberg-newport-athlete-20160408-story.html).

Dear NMUSD Parent, Guardian, or Community Member:

Starting in the 2013-2014 school year, the state of California created a new model for school district funding and accountability.  As a result, each district develops an annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  Each school district must engage parents, educators, employees and the community to establish these plans.  The plan describes the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals.  The LCAPs must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
 

We would like to invite you to provide your feedback on the 2015-2016 LCAP Actions and Services through a short online survey. 

You may also review all of the district’s LCAP documents on our dedicated webpage at http://web.nmusd.us/lcap
 

If you have questions or would like to provide additional input, please send an email to lcap@nmusd.us

Thank you.

Estimado padre, tutor, o miembro de la Comunidad de NMUSD:

 

A partir del año escolar 2013-2014, el estado de California ha creado un nuevo modelo de financiación de distrito escolar y la rendición de cuentas. Como resultado, cada distrito desarrolla un Plan de Rendición de Cuentas y Control Local (LCAP por sus siglas en ingles). Cada distrito escolar debe involucrar a los padres, educadores, empleados y la comunidad para establecer estos planes. El plan describe la visión general del distrito escolar para los estudiantes, las metas anuales y las acciones específicas del distrito tomará para alcanzar la visión y los objetivos. El LCAP debe centrarse en ocho áreas identificadas como prioridades del estado. Los planes también mostrarán la manera como se usará el presupuesto del distrito para ayudar a lograr las metas y cada año se evaluará si las estrategias del plan han mejorado los resultados

 

Nos gustaría invitarlos a que aporten sus comentarios sobre las acciones 2015-2016 LCAP y servicios a través de una breve encuesta en línea.

También puede revisar todos los documentos LCAP del distrito en nuestra página de internet, http://web.nmusd.us/lcap

Si tiene alguna pregunta o desea proporcionar información adicional, envíe un correo electrónico a lcap@nmusd.us.

Gracias.

ClassifiedAwards.jpg
The Newport - Mesa Unified School District (N-MUSD) Board of Education recognized the 2016 Classified Employee of the Year winners at the April 12, 2016 Board meeting. The Classified Employee of the Year Awards Program recognizes employees that go above and beyond the expectations of their job duties to provide exemplary service to students, families and colleagues.

 

Classified employees are nominated by principals and district directors in the following six categories; Child Nutrition, Maintenance and Operations, Office and Technical, Instructional Assistant, Support Services and Security, and Transportation. Nominees must meet the following criteria:

  • Current, permanent employee
  • Rank and file employee, not management or supervisory position
  • Minimum of five years of service in nomination category.

NMUSD congratulates the following 2016 Classified Employees of the Years:

 

Laura Chirinos, Child Nutrition

Ms. Laura Chirinos has worked for the NMUSD for nearly 20 years and has served as a Nutrition Services Specialist III at Estancia High School for the past nine years. She is responsible for planning and coordinating the production of more than 1,000 meals daily.

 

Ms. Chirinos is a fast learner, quickly promoted because of her ability to assimilate the wisdom gained from working at multiple schools throughout the district.  She has incorporated this broad knowledge to satisfy the unique dietary needs of students and build strong relationships with her co-workers who often seek her guidance and advice. She has created a positive and welcoming atmosphere for students and a fun and a collaborative work environment for her colleagues and encourages the staff to further their education and work experiences so they too can be promoted.

 

Jean Paul Vigneault, Maintenance, Operations and Facilities

Newport-Mesa’s Classified Employee of the Year from the Maintenance, Operations and Facilities team, Mr. Jean Paul Vigneault, has consistently proven himself to be an exceptional employee who regularly goes above and beyond to ensure the safety and security of staff, students and the public. With his extensive knowledge of custodial operations and standards, he has established himself as an invaluable asset, able to fill in for virtually all custodial positions throughout the district. In addition, he is always willing to assist anyone who asks, is known for doing the right thing no matter the circumstance, and is widely admired throughout the school community for his foresight and compassion.

 

Wayne Wescott, Office and Technical

Highly regarded for his tenacity, self-motivation and exceptional customer service, Office and Technical Support Technician Mr. Wayne Wescott, has impressively advanced his position within the District throughout his twenty-one years of employment. 

 

Collaboratively leading a team of technicians, he has helped package and deploy hundreds of business and instructional applications to thousands of computers throughout more than thirty schools and multiple district offices. His distinguished work on automated software deployment of the latest instructional and business applications have proven crucial to the success of District-wide operations and positively impacted both employees and students. Consistently updating his skills and knowledge, he regularly leads training sessions for information technology staff and has proven to be of immeasurable value to the schools and the overall District.

 

Jesse Murray, Para-Educator and Instructional Assistance

Mr. Jesse Murray, a special education instructional assistant at Corona del Mar High School, is an exceptional employee who provides consistent encouragement and motivational support for both students and staff. He frequently chaperones student outings and actively participates in school fundraisers, events and rallies. He has become a household name within the Corona del Mar school community. 

 

Known by many families as a mentor and friend to special needs students, he is able to manage and inspire with a sense of accountability and empathy. In addition, this consummate professional is the aide everyone desires to have in their classroom because of his vital data collection abilities, flexibility and reliability, as well as his dedication to and affinity with students. Mr. Murray is the quintessential role model for what an effective student-focused leader should be.

 

Vicki Martini, Support Services and Security

With an outstanding reputation and greatly respected in her field, Vicki Martini has had an immense impact in the community during her twenty-four years with the district.

 

She is a strong supporter of youth organizations and a volunteer for numerous events and fundraisers. Ms. Martini also has been masterful at building collaborative relationships throughout the district as well as the community at-large. She has established work training programs and facilitates student job placement at local businesses, nurtured beneficial relationships with multiple county and state agencies and attends local Better Business Bureau and Chamber of Commerce functions to promote, support, and build partnerships for District programs. This vast network of resources has been assembled all in the service of students, culminating in far-reaching results that ultimately empower students to achieve economic self-sufficiency, independent living and integration into all aspects of society.

 

Lucky Nguyen, Transportation

Newport-Mesa’s Classified Employee of the Year from the Transportation category, Lucky Nguyen, is known for his commitment to his job and the students with whom he interacts daily. His attentive, friendly, and approachable demeanor is instrumental in providing excellent service. He recognizes when students are struggling and is more than willing to proactively provide extra care when needed. 

 

The ultimate team player, he consistently volunteers wherever and whenever a need arises, including at the School Bus Roadeo Competitions, and is regularly sought out by his fellow drivers for his friendly and effectual advice. He has not missed a day of work in more than five years, exemplifying his remarkable dedication to his job, as well as to all with whom he interacts. This is part of the reason NMUSD consistently receive compliments on his exceptional service.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD), like many school districts has been impacted by the mobile application, Ogle. Ogle allows users to submit photos, make comments and post information without censorship and in total anonymity. Earlier this month two NMUSD schools were made aware of school threats made via the Ogle application. Today, as a result of the strong partnership and collaboration with NMUSD, the Costa Mesa Police Department identified the individual involved with the threat.

 

The threat, posted on the social media application earlier this month, resulted in proactive safety measures immediately implemented by Costa Mesa High School staff, district personnel and law enforcement. No evidence has been discovered that would suggest there was an imminent threat to the students or staff. The Costa Mesa Police Department’s investigation is ongoing and anyone with additional information is asked to call Detective Nicole Brown at
(714) 754-4873.

 

“We are extremely proud of our staff and local law enforcement placing a high priority on student safety,” said NMUSD Superintendent Dr. Fred Navarro.

 

NMUSD does not believe that there is a practical use for the Ogle app and that it is largely being used to spread harmful, hurtful and negative messages. The District does not believe that it adds any value nor does it deliver any positive benefits for students.

 

We urge parents to carefully monitor student’s online presence and use of this app and any other social media. We respectfully ask parents strongly consider removing this app from student’s phone. NMUSD continually reviews district-owned devices to ensure that such applications are not installed.

 

We commend the dedicated efforts of our staff and the Costa Mesa Police Department and appreciate their commitment to ensuring a safe environment focused on student learning.

We would like to make you aware of a problematic mobile application called Ogle. Ogle is designed and marketed for students to post videos and/or pictures about themselves, other students and their school campuses. The application allows users to submit photos, make comments and post without censorship and in total anonymity.

 

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District believes that there is no practical use for this app and that it is largely being used to spread harmful, hurtful and negative messages. We do not believe it adds any value nor does it deliver any positive benefits for our students. The schools in our district (and many others) are being affected by this application. The Ogle app, like many other social media, can become an avenue for cyber-bullying, harassment, violence and other issues.

 

We urge parents to carefully monitor student’s online presence and use of this app and any other social media. We respectfully ask that you strongly consider removing this app from your students phone. We continually review district-owned devices to ensure that such applications are not installed.

 

There are offensive, insulting and even threatening posts on the Ogle app. While we partner with local police departments to research the validity and origination of threatening claims, we urge your support in the following:

  • REPORT HARASSMENT. Report harassment to your school administrators. Administrators will follow up on any credible matters that are reported, involving student-to-student harassment. Include as much information as you can; if it’s related to Ogle (or another app or program), take screenshots of the offending material. The more information that you can provide, the better.
  • REMOVE THE OGLE APP. We strongly encourage parents to remove the app from students phone and mobile devices. The best way to be unaffected by Ogle is to be disconnected from it.
  • REPORT PROBLEMS TO THE COMPANY DIRECTLY. The app itself is supposed to have a "Report" function that allows users to report abusive activity; the company, in turn, can remove the offending user. We have no control over whether or not they’ll follow through. (If that doesn’t work, you can always call the company directly at 949-413-3280.)

We appreciate your help in partnering with us to ensure a safe environment focused on student learning.
