5.1. NCSM School Discussion: Relocation Strategy & ImplementationWas edited within 24 hours of the Meeting
Diego R. Ochoa, Superintendent

On February 18, 2021, the school district presented a summary of actions that would be taken to construct the new school in North Central San Mateo. The consultation services provided by PAN were discussed. It was mentioned that the recommendations for North Central School Vision and Program were projected for late spring 2021. The report indicated that the original budget (250 student school) was $23 million. In June 2021, the PAN ltd. report was completed and presented to the Board of Trustees. The report found that 93% of respondents strongly or somewhat agree that families must have a voice in what students learn. Additionally, families agreed or strongly agreed that it is important for schools to include them in decisions about after-school programs, hiring administrators/teachers, and setting budget priorities. Families reported being less concerned with a “school theme” and more concerned with structures and practices that shape student experiences and enable them to contribute to decisions. Families reported the need for teachers and leaders to be multilingual. They also expressed that the school should be a culturally and linguistically responsive school. Families specifically called for a bilingual program or immersion program with strong ELD programming.
