Message from the Directors
Dear Community Members,
Congratulations to our Kaiser Permanente students! We are proud to acknowledge the hard work of Kaiser Hospital’s Environmental Service Workers who recently earned certificates in Workplace English. These Kaiser employees successfully completed a 28-week course designed to enhance their skills in English language, digital literacy, safety, and customer service. The course included activities the helped employees gain confidence and positively impact career mobility.
Upon receiving their certificates at an Award Ceremony on September 24, 2014, all students had the opportunity to speak about their experience and their learning gains. It was heartwarming to observe the confidence students had gained in public speaking and to hear about how the course made such a difference in their daily lives.
This course was part of a work-based training project offered through a collaboration between Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara, Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West Ed Fund, and Santa Clara Adult Education. Are you interested in providing training like this for your employees? Please contact Christine Berdiansky, Program Supervisor at (408) 423-3507.
New School Bond
To accommodate the growing student population in our school district, move toward smaller class sizes, and continue making facility improvements like those you’ve been seeing at the Educational Options campus, the Board of Trustees has placed a new school bond on the November 2014 ballot - Measure H. For more information about Measure H, please visit the District website at www.santaclarausd.org/bond/2014.
Again, congratulations to the Kaiser Santa Clara students. Being neighbors in the city of Santa Clara, this collaboration has opened a door of opportunity in our community. Because of projects like this, our community “thrives”.
