    Who Can Apply? Any person, regardless of sex, who is 18 years of age or older, a citizen of California, a resident of the school district, a registered voter and who is not disqualified by the Constitution or laws of California from holding a civil office, is eligible to be elected or appointed a member of a governing board of a school District without further qualifications.             (California Education Code Section 35107)


    Cambrian School District's Governing Board is composed of five elected members and serve a four-year term.  Elections are held in even-numbered years and terms are staggered to ensure that only 2 or 3 seats are open each election.

    The Cambrian Board of Trustees works with the Superintendent to:


    • Provide direction for the District
    • Establish District policies and procedures
    • Ensures accountability
    • Provide community leadership on behalf of the district and public education.

    The Governing Board makes learning a priority for all students, prioritizing goals and clarifying expectations for positive outcomes. The Board will establish structure, provide citizen oversight and protect the public’s interest in preserving a free and equitable public education system. These responsibilities represent core functions that are so fundamental to a school system’s accountability to the public that they can only be performed by an elected governing body. Authority is granted to the Board as a whole, not each member individually. Therefore, Board Members fulfill these responsibilities by working together as a governance team with the Superintendent to make decisions that will best serve all the students in the community.  In California, there are approximately 1,000 school districts and county offices of education that are governed by more than 5,000 school board members. California’s is the largest public school system in the nation, serving more than 6 million students--a collective student body larger than the total population of many other states.

    Board Meetings

    All Board meetings are held at the Cambrian School District Professional Development Center, 4115 Jacksol Drive Building 7, San Jose, CA 95124. This building is located behind the main office and can be reached by entering the gate to the right of the main building. Regularly scheduled meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. and are held the first and third Thursday of every month, August-June. Special Board meetings dates and start times vary and are scheduled when needed.

    California School Dashboard Updates

    You may know that in March 2018, the California Department of Education (CDE) released a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K–12 districts and schools. Called the California School Dashboard, the site features reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English learner progress and suspension rates. The Dashboard is part of California's new school accountability system based on 2013's Local Control Funding Formula. New student achievement data from Spring 2017 will be available this Thursday, according to the CDE.

    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. Complete aggregated data is not available for our district, and parents may need to follow an extra step to find their child's school. Click here to learn more and follow the instructions to find the data for your school.
