In an effort to reduce student stress and respond to the evolving instructional practices, the San Ramon Valley Unified School District revised its homework policy for the 2015-2016 school year in order to:



  • Limit the overall volume of homework;
  • Eliminate homework over breaks;
  • Develop a more effective system to communicate and implement the policy; and
  • Align with the Common Core State Standards and other legal requirements.



As a follow-up to this work, the District is surveying parents, teachers and middle and high school students on the effectiveness of the revised policy. Survey results will be used to help identify the best practices for homework and improve the implementation of our homework policy. The survey is anonymous and should take 5-10 minutes to complete. The survey closes on Tuesday, February 16. Below is a link to the parent survey:



2015-16 Homework Survey for Parents



If you have questions or concerns about your child’s homework, please contact your child’s teacher. If you have questions about the Homework Policy or this survey, please check the District’s homework policy page or contact Director of Instruction Jason Reimann at

Below is a message from the DVHS Chinese course teacher:



Chinese Placement Test:

A Chinese placement test will be offered to determine initial placement into our district’s language program for 9th graders who have not taken Chinese at the middle school.  All students must complete an application in order to take the test.

Note: The highest level into which a student can place is Chinese 2.  Students currently enrolled in Chinese 1A/1B in middle school cannot take this test- they will be placed into a Chinese class next year, per district policy. 


The incoming 9th graders' Chinese placement test is scheduled at 3:10 pm on March 3, 2016 at Dougherty Valley High School. 


After submitting an online application form (see link below), students will receive an email informing them of the testing location.


The last day to submit the application is 3:00 pm, March 1, 2016.

Principal's Message

February 2016


Dear GRMS Families,
February is an important month here at Gale Ranch.  Not only is it Black History Month, or National African American History Month, it is also a time to consider how the words we use matter.   Words Matter Week is a time when we do some reflecting on how what we say can have a negative (or positive) effect on the people around us.  Celebrating the diversity on our campus is just one way in which we foster our philosophy that every person is important and has the ability to contribute greatly.  The GRMS community is one that is so special; we recognize that every person is an integral part of our greater good.  We understand that we are connected by our humanness and made stronger by the kindness we show to one another.  My hope is that February will not be the only month we recognize the greatness of the contributions made by so many in our nation’s history, but that we celebrate them daily.
Other important dates in February include our 2nd Annual Tech Night on February 25 from 6:30 – 8:00.  This is our one and only tech fundraiser for the year.  Our goal this year is to raise $12,000 and I hope you'll help us get there!  Don’t miss out on this amazing evening of tech inspired workshops taught by some of our very own GRMS staff and students!  More information can be obtained by clicking here.
Have a fantastic February!

Sue Goldman, Principal
