We need your feedback! 
DJUSD is asking for parent/guardian and staff feedback that will help with our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP helps the district connect the funding we receive with the goals we have established, and parent/guardian input, as well as staff input, plays a critical role in identifying these goals. There are separate 10 minute surveys for staff members, parents of elementary students, parents of middle school students, and parents of high school students. If you have children in multiple levels please take each survey that applies. 
Thank you so much for your time and feedback. It is greatly appreciated!

She was arrested and became part of the landmark legal case Browder vs Gayle, that helped end the practice of segregation on Montgomery. Alabama public buses.

Claudette Colvin is a pioneer of the Civil Rights Movement. On March 2, 1955, she was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a bus in segregated Montgomery, Alabama, nine months prior to Rosa Parks' famous arrest for the same offense.

 

“I felt like Sojourner Truth was pushing down on one shoulder and Harriet Tubman was pushing down on the other—saying, 'Sit down girl!' I was glued to my seat" Colvin later told Newsweek in an interview as to how she was feeling when she stayed in her seat on the bus.

Thought for Today: “Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.”- Langston Hughes

Moments in History: Around 5,000 African-American Men Fought in the Continental Army. There would have been more, but when George Washington took command in 1775, he barred any additional recruitment of blacks. Many free and enslaved blacks fought for the Patriots in the Revolutionary War; Prince Hall and Agrippa Hull are probably the most famous names among them. But there were also many blacks who fought for the British – Colonel Tye, Thomas Peters and Boston King are three of the most well-known.

John Mercer Langston was also the great-uncle of Langston Hughes, famed poet of the Harlem Renaissance.

Academic Talent Search: Are you interested in getting a taste of the college experience? Academic Talent Search (ATS) offers 4th-9th graders (grade level as of Jan. 1, 2018) exciting summer courses at Sacramento State that you pick for yourself! Choose from classes like All the World’s a Stage, Algebra 1, LEGO Robotics, Neuropsychology, Video Game Development, and many others. At ATS, you can spend your summer doing what you love, take classes on a university campus, and make new friends who share your interests and passion for learning!

 

To join these interactive and hands-on classes, you need to take the ATS Qualifying Exam. The test only takes an hour and there is no pass or fail, so there is no need to stress! You MUST take the test to apply for classes, but you do not have to apply if you change your mind. The Qualifying Exam will be offered at Harper on February 14th

 

For more information, please contact Jennifer Mullin at jmullin@djud.net. Additional details and financial aid information can be found on the ATS website at http://www.csus.edu/coe/ats/.
