Pyramid of Success Picture.jpg

Woodland's character education program is based on Coach John Wooden's book, Inch and Miles - The Journey to Success. Throughout the journey, Inch and Miles find out the real meaning of success by meeting fourteen characters in the story who represent the values that will guarantee success. By the end of the journey, Inch and Miles understand that:

Success isn't having trophies or toys.

It isn't a medal or friends of your choice.

What is Success? That's easy to see.

It's trying to be the best that you can be!

Don't worry what others may have or might say.

When trying your best,

Success comes your way.

Thank you Coach John Wooden for allowing us to share your Pyramid of Success with our students.

Greetings! In the interest of keeping the community informed, please see below for a brief review of the upcoming Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) Board meeting. I have highlighted a few items that may be of interest to the general public.

 

Board Meeting Agenda Highlights:

 

Report:

 

13.a. Report on Estancia Zone’s Engineering Pathway and Construction Technology Pathway. The Department of College and Career Education, Estancia High School, and TeWinkle Middle School will report on this Pathway.

 

12.c. Report on the California School Dashboard. The Assessment Department will report on the new Dashboard.

 

Discussion/Action:

 

15.a. Final Reading and Adoption of Board Policy Revisions.

 

15.b. First Reading and Adoption of Board Policy Revisions.

 

Please note that the NMUSD Board of Education meeting agenda is posted online the Friday prior to the meeting. Click here to view the full NMUSD Board of Education meeting agenda.

 

 

General Board Meeting Overview

 

Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.

 

Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.

 

Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections:  

  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
     
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
     
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law.  
     
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Fred Navarro
Superintendent, Newport-Mesa Unified School District
