Job Opportunity – Yard Supervisors
EGUSD is calling for Yard Supervisors who can assist with the arrival, dismissal and supervision of students. This includes monitoring students on the playground areas, during teacher breaks and with grab-and-go lunches. This is a perfect opportunity for our community members and parents to get involved at your school sites for a couple of hours a day.
- Pay is $14 per hour (no benefits)
- Shifts will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
- Interested candidates can apply to the Substitute Yard Supervisor pool on Edjoin using this link: https://www.edjoin.org/Home/DistrictJobPosting/1339527
Planning for the administration of state assessments is in process. We anticipate additional guidance from the State Board of Education next week. As a reminder, the 2021 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) occurs annually in the spring. CAASPP includes students in grades 3-8 and 11 who will take assessments in English language arts and mathematics and students in grades 5, 8, 11, and 12 who will also take a science assessment. The state has made adjustments which shortens the tests and allows for a remote testing option. More information for parents and staff will be forthcoming.
As we welcome back some of our year round elementary school students, we also wish our traditional, modified traditional and secondary school students a happy and well-deserved Spring Break. Thank you to all of our staff, students, parents and community members for doing your part to help others who are facing challenges, slow the transmission of COVID-19 in our community and in helping us to continue to improve. It was a long and tiring year and we will keep pressing forward with greater hope and determination for recovery and prosperity.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
