We had a great conversation with Assemblyman Gregg Hart about maintaining local control for school districts. His commitment to public service and education, plus his background work with former state superintendent of instruction Jack O'Connell, is truly appreciated.

Wow! We had such great attendance during today's Parent Professional Development with Dr. Brooke Sears. Dr. Sears spent the morning helping us all better understand how to parent and support our children. I have attached a list of resources she shared with the group. They include a recommended reading list for students and adults, a coping strategies list, and strategies for reversing the cycle of anxiety. I'm looking forward to our next Parent Professional Development with Dr. Rosy Bucio, Santa Barbara County Special Education Behavior Specialist, on November 13th at 8:25 AM. Dr. Bucio will be presenting on "Anxiety and How to Successfully Monitor you Child's Technology use at home."

The Cold Spring School District Governing Board and Chief Business Officer did an excellent job representing the District at the Small School Districts' Association Leadership Summit in Newport Beach on July 23-25. Our success as a school district is due in large part to our unity of purpose.

The combined presentations are fulfilling our vision of ensuring that every child, gets every opportunity to be successful every day, throughout the State of California.

I’m incredibly proud of our District and Montecito community! Together, we built a school kitchen for our children. This project was make possible because of the exceptional facilities leadership from Yuri Calderon, equipment donations from the San Ysidro Ranch and Jordano’s, and endless support from the Governing Board. Our school kitchen is an extraordinary example of excellence in public education with community support!
