HHS Orchestra Goes to So Cal!
The Homestead High School Orchestra recently returned from a fun and educational orchestra exchange with Beckman High School in Southern California. The two schools performed for each other, combined to play an arrangement of Beauty and the Beast movie music together, and took a side trip to Downtown Disney for the new Beauty and the Beast movie in 3-D. They also had an exciting backstage sight reading session in Disneyland, where they sight read the actual music to film clips from Tangled, the Nightmare Before Christmas, Cars 2, and Up, and were able to hear how it sounds with the Homestead Orchestra as the soundtrack. The orchestra learned how to play with a click track, how professional musicians must get it exactly right with little to no rehearsal time, how music is so important to the emotions of movies, and what it would be like to be a professional studio musician.

This week, the California Department of Education (CDE) released a new accountability system and corresponding website designed to help parents and communities access important information about K-12 districts and schools across the state and how well they are serving their students. This system, known as the California School Dashboard, is a significant departure from the Academic Performance Index. We understand there will likely be many questions from our families and community members about the new system, which moves away from a single number/ranking to a system aligned to multiple measures, including graduation and suspension rates, indicators of college and career readiness, English Learner progress and test scores.
Please read the attached letter for more information on the CA Dashboard and directions on accessing the CDE¹s website on the CA Dashboard.
The Alameda County Office of Education has also put on a wonderful video that can be viewed at https://vimeo.com/207874984, which explains the Dashboard in more detail.
Thank you for your continued support of our schools as we work to ensure that every student has the strongest foundation for future success.
