The link below is to the annual student survey.  In past years this survey was completed on paper, but this year we are using an online survey program. The survey can be accessed using a computer or a smart phone.  This survey is part of Tracy Unified School District’s efforts to make our schools the best place for students to learn.  The survey will be open until the end of the school year (May 29, 2015). Your honest opinion is appreciated.

 LCAP Survey
Tracy Unified School District is interested in gathering valuable feedback from all stakeholders on the design and implementation of the district’s priorities for the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).  To accomplish this, we are gathering community input.  Your participation is critical in this decision-making process and we appreciate your assistance by completing this survey.  The information provided will assist the district in allocating funds from the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) in ways which will best support student learning for all children and move the district towards closing the achievement gap for all at-risk students. 
 
The LCAP Stakeholder Survey is on the TUSD Public Website.  It is now located front and center of the front page- no hunting required!
 
All parent, staff and community members are encouraged to take the survey.
 
SARC Reports
All public schools are required to prepare and distribute a SARC (School Accountability Report Card). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.  SARCs are prepared with information from the previous school year.  The 2013-14 SARCs can be obtained from the school website and district website at https://www.tracy.k12.ca.us/AboutTUSD/SitePages/SARC.aspx.   Paper copies will be made available, upon request.

Freiler Stars Attendance Banners
Please make sure your students come to school each day and on time. Consider this: A student who arrives to school late each day by 3 minutes misses over 500 minutes of instruction each year.  That is the equivalent of 9 hours of missed instruction.
Students cannot learn if they are not in school. Students with high rates of absenteeism have a harder time getting their work done and often end up scoring poorly on assessments. Please help our students get to school on time-  It does make a difference!
Each class has an attendance banner that is filled in each day when they have perfect attendance. When the banner is complete , students receive a recognition treat.
Parents please call the office whenever your student is absent at (209) 830-3309.
 
Common Core State Standards
The Common Core is changing the way we teach our students, and changing the types of work our students are doing. 
 
To find out more about the Common Core, visit the TUSD Common Core Information Page.
 
Another great common core website is www.commoncoreworks.org. This site has great resources for parents.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Principal’s Message May

Dear Freiler Parents,
                It is almost the end of another school year and the students are gearing down as they prepare to begin their summer. The students completed their state testing for the first time with Smarter Balance online testing that is going to establish our baseline for next year. All students really tried their best. Next year continues our movement into Common Core standards, the use of our new math programs, and our focus will begin with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).  Our students will continue to see more changes in the classroom with the new math and NGSS as teachers and students get more acclimated with the new technology. Teachers will integrate more project based learning projects where rigor and relevance are key in the lesson design.  This movement addresses the multiple learning styles of our students and I am excited to see them implemented in the years to come!
Next year we remain a closed campus and we will require grades 6th-8th to wear their school lanyards. We will be collecting them this month and they will be returned at the beginning of the school year, so we may start the year with them until we get our Fall pictures taken and they will then receive an updated student identification card.
May is filled with student performances for dance, music, and promotion.  The students enjoyed many outstanding fieldtrips this year that allowed the students to see the connection between education and their outside lives, which is a great example of Common Core as we make education more relevant for our students. We end the month with recognizing our students who promote to high school. We prepared them well for their future successes and we wish them the best in high school.
Lastly, I wanted to thank our fantastic staff and you, our parents,  for making this a year to remember!  Thank you for your support and wiliness to support your student as they reach for the stars!
 
Have a wonderful summer,
 
 
Karen Alcorn, Principal
