    A Message from Superintendent, Dr. Nancy Lynch
    January 22, 2020


    Dear RUSD Families,
    California Dashboard:
    Since 2017, the California Department of Education has released a report on school progress on identified areas determined by the state. The report for the current year was published in December. For your reference, you may also review the summary presentation made to the RUSD Trustees on January 14, 2020.
    Bel Aire and Del Mar Parents of Special Needs Students:
    I will be offering a support group for Bel Aire and Del Mar students who have siblings with special needs. Understandably, much attention in a family goes to children with special needs, and siblings often have feelings and experiences that they are reluctant to express. Feelings they may experience can include being left out, feelings of guilty, or taking on adult roles to help out in the family. Special needs may include physical, academic/learning, or emotional/behavioral challenges. 
    If you are interested in having your child participate in this support group, please contact me at and I will send you a permission form. I will meet with the students once a week for a few weeks, and then meet every other week for a few months, if needed. We will focus on identifying issues and feelings, communication, and problem solving. There will be one group at Bel Aire and one group at Del Mar. If you have any further questions, please contact me.
    Dr. Allan Gold
    Equity Resources for Families:
    Each of our schools will participate in the Great Kindness Challenge which is observed from January 27-31. Students will engage in age appropriate activities to spread kindness. The program was designed to be a proactive and positive bully prevention initiative that improves school climate and increases student engagement, as well as creates a culture of compassion, acceptance, unity and respect. Last year, over 13 million students completed over 650 million acts of kindness in over 115 countries. You can support this program at home by participating in the Family Edition Acts of Kindness.

    Best regards,
    Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.
