Dear Gale Ranch Middle School Families,                                                                   

As many of you are aware, the district is in the process of implementing Personalized Learning Options (PLO) that focus on flexibility and options for middle and high school students.  Many of the ideas will be put into effect for the 2018-2019 school year.  While the majority of them will impact high school students, a few of them will affect middle school students and families.  Below are descriptions of the PLOs that could possibly impact your child next year:

 

Six-Class Option (Instead of Typical Seven-Classes):

WHAT: Students have the option of taking only six classes by NOT taking one of their elective periods (only take 6 periods of classes and a lunch period). Students will have the choice of selecting a time preference of Periods 1-7 or Periods 2-8.  *Depending on course options and budget/staff availability, we will attempt to honor your time preference; however, we cannot guarantee you will get your first choice. 

HOW:  You will receive information on how to choose this option during Course Selection in March 2018.

Please note:  If you choose this option, students must arrive/leave campus when their school day begins/ends.  There will be no supervision before/after school for students not enrolled in an elective, and they must leave campus. 

  

Independent Study Physical Education (ISPE):

WHAT: Students qualifying for ISPE are exceptionally gifted athletes who are competing at the regional, state, or national competition level within the school year in an individual sport.  The physical activity MUST be an individual sport (team sports are not permitted).  Students in 7th grade will still be responsible for completing their Fitnessgram Tests. Parent/Guardian is not eligible to serve as instructor/coach. In addition, instructor/coach must carry proper liability insurance for the activity in which they are giving instruction.

HOW: Applications will be available on the GRMS and SRVUSD websites under "Personalized Learning" by Monday, April 16 and will be due to Ms. Eberly, Assistant Principal. 

Please note:  If you choose this option, students must arrive/leave campus when their school day begins/ends.  There will be no supervision before/after school for students not enrolled in a PE class.

 

World Language through Heritage Language Schools:

WHAT: Students taking a language at an SRVUSD-approved Heritage Language School (current offerings include SiliconAndhra ManaBadi Telugu School, Chinese American Cooperation Council (CACC) School, and International Tamil Academy) will be able to use the classes for advancement purposes once they promote from eighth grade.  Students will not receive credit toward high school graduation for any courses taken prior to promoting from eighth grade.  If the Heritage School language is offered at the student’s home school, Heritage credit will not be awarded on the high school transcript.  

HOW: Parents are responsible for enrolling their child into the SRVUSD-approved Heritage School of their choice.  

 

We believe that the implementation of these Personalized Learning Options will truly help to reduce student stress, and increase student flexibility and choice with their program of study.  Please visit the district’s website at www.srvusd.net for additional information.

 

Sincerely,

Sue Goldman, Principal

Whew, we made it!  Warm weather is finally here and it’s time for your family to enjoy the slower pace of summer, lack of homework, travel, and relaxation!  I encourage you to find ways to keep your children excited about learning.  Make reading a priority for your family this summer!

Thanks so much for another awesome year at Gale Ranch Middle School! I know I speak for the entire faculty and staff when I thank you for all of your support that you consistently provide for us.  We have already started planning for our Annual Ice Cream Social, so stay tuned for details, which will come in form of an email during the month of July. I look forward to seeing all of you in August and until then keep on dancin’!

Warmly, Sue
