The five members of the Board of Education are elected by the voters to four-year terms. Board members are committed to providing the best educational programs for all students, and the Board is responsible for the overall operation of the District. The Board-appointed superintendent (Dr. Jason Peplinski) administers policy, manages the budget, supervises staff and makes recommendations concerning the District's operation.

The Board selected Trustee Kareem Jubran as Board President and Trustee Scott Blough as Board Clerk at the annual organizational meeting, held in December 2020.



The following goals were approved by the Board of Education at the Regular School Board Meeting on February 16, 2021:

GOAL 1: Secondary schools will provide a comprehensive program to prepare students for college and career.

GOAL 2: SVUSD will fully implement the California State Standards (CSS). Teachers will be fully trained and provided with aligned materials. Technology integration will also be a focus.

GOAL 3: SVUSD will provide comprehensive programs to improve student performance and address students who are not meeting grade-level standards. California State Standards-aligned District benchmarks will be established and implemented. A comprehensive Response to Intervention (RtI) program will be initiated and subgroups will be addressed.

GOAL 4: Parents will be active partners with the District and school sites. The focus will be to augment parent opportunities for involvement; improve the communication between school and home; and improve parents' digital access. Specific attention will be given to English Language (EL) parents.

GOAL 5: SVUSD will provide a safe and engaging environment for students. The areas of focus will be to address bullying and to implement a digital citizenship curriculum, as well as to improve student connectedness to school. Facilities maintenance will also be a focus.

GOAL 6: SVUSD will maintain fiscal integrity.

GOAL 7: The Board of Education is committed to the goal of safely reopening all schools at the point that reopening is allowed by the criteria set forth by state/local agencies. **PLEASE NOTE: This goal is considered temporary and will be removed once it has been fulfilled. Thank you.
