     Bagby's Planned Multi-Use Room
    Wonderful news! The Cambrian SD Governing Board has approved moving forward with a revised plan for the Bagby Multi-Use Project, one of three proposals submitted to bring costs within the Board’s allotted budget and allow the district to proceed with the project.  The new plan makes adjustments to the budget for roofing, flooring and the outdoor area around the site, but preserves the structure’s canopy to retain flexible outdoor space.  Please watch this space for future updates, including opportunities to provide input, as the project progresses, and thank you for your ongoing support.

District Announcements

  • Online Communications Improvements Coming Soon!

    We are excited to announce that after much research, editing and gathering of feedback, our website upgrade is about to go live for the district and all six of our school sites! The new sites will be easier to navigate, mobile-device accessible and responsive, and have a great contemporary look! The upgrade is scheduled to roll out this weekend (Sept. 22-24) during a low-traffic period to minimize disruption and should be live and fully functional by Monday the 25th. 

    In addition, ​We'll be launching our new Cambrian SD Mobile App on October 18th! Instructions about how to find, download and install the app will be forthcoming as we approach the launch date. In the meantime, check out this video highlighting a few of the app's useful features!

     Cambrian TK Is Growing!

    We are pleased to share some very exciting news about the future of Cambrian's Transitional Kindergarten program. Due to popular demand, Bagby and Farnham will both house their own TK classes starting in 2017-18, allowing more families to take advantage of early learning at their home school. This move will help keep siblings together, cut down on family commute times, and give students an early introduction to the school communities where they will spend much of their childhood. If you have an eligible child and would like to take advantage of our expanding program, we are still accepting TK students for enrollment! More information and all enrollment forms can be found here.

     New CDE Data Dashboard Launched -- Find CSD Student Data Quickly and Easily

    California is field testing a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K–12 districts and schools – including ours. Called the California School Dashboard (Coming March 2017), the site features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English learning progress and suspension rates. 

    Please Note:

    As you may know, the majority of our schools are structured as “dependent charter schools,” which allows us to welcome students from throughout our county, not just our district boundaries. The Dashboard currently lists all charter schools as separate entities, whether they are affiliated with a district or not. As a result, a search in the Dashboard for “Cambrian School District” only brings up information for Bagby Elementary. To see other school site information, simply use the search bar and enter the name of the site. (Note also that there is no data for Steindorf, as the school is in its first year of operation).

     Learn More About Our New Math Curricula

    We're pleased to announce that the Board has officially approved the adoption of the new math curricula recommended by staff and the curriculum committee, Eureka Math (TK-5) and College prep Math (6-8). Parent resources can be found below in anticipation of a full roll-out in Fall 2017:

    Sexual Health Education Resources

    On May 8, 2017, the Board officially adopted the Puberty/Sexual Health curriculum recommended by staff for grades 5 and 7. The link above contains information about the new curriculum, the California Healthy Youth Act, our adoption process, an archive of previous communications about the curriculum, and a wealth of outside resources for families.  Thank you to the many staff and families who served as an invaluable part of the adoption process. 

     Join Us As A Yard Duty Today

    Love kids? Cambrian School District is looking for compassionate Yard Duties at all school sites. In addition to providing a safe learning environment for all students, Yard Duties have the opportunity to develop important relationships with children that can make a lasting impact. This part-time, flexible role is the perfect way to become more involved with Cambrian School District and give back to your community.

    An additional opportunity is available at Steindorf for a Yard Duty/ Crossing Guard position. This role entails maintaining student and parent safety at the intersection in front of the school while students arrive/depart for the day, as well as supervising students on campus during breaks.

    For more information, simply stop by the front office of any Cambrian school, where staff can answer your questions and assist you with the application.
