English Language Arts Materials Available for Public Review

Centralia School District has started the process for adoption of a new English Language Arts (ELA) and English Language Development (ELD) instructional materials program for the 2016-17 school year. We began our adoption process by establishing an ELA/ELD Committee made up of representatives from across the district: one parent from each school site, two-three teachers from each site, two school administrators, one district administrator and three teachers on special assignment.  As part of the process, we will hold a 30-day public display of materials of the programs under consideration for adoption.

Dear Parents and Staff,

The Centralia School District is currently undergoing a planning process to assess our facilities and develop a plan to meet our needs.  In an effort to gather feedback from the school site community, meetings have been scheduled at each of our school sites. 

The meeting will be led and facilitated by representatives from our Facilities Master Plan consultant, Caldwell Flores Winters, Inc.  Please join us at this meeting to discuss our progress and provide your input.  We encourage your attendance and participation.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (714) 228-3100.

At the March meeting, the governing board approved the 2016/17 school calendar. The calendar is now available on the school webpages and a copy is here for your download.


On June 30, 2015, Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 277 (SB 277) changing school immunization requirements.  The new vaccine law takes effect on January 1, 2016 and requires that all children in California be fully vaccinated to attend public or private school unless they have a valid medical exemption or a valid personal beliefs exemption on file with the District before January 1, 2016.  Students will have to meet all of the age appropriate State immunization requirements for admission to school as of July 1, 2016.


The following questions and answers pertain mostly to primary school admittance and have been provided by OCDE’s Medical Officer, Dr. Marc Lerner and Coordinator of Health and Wellness, Pamela Kahn. For more information, please visit the Shots For Schools site (Shots For School – SPANISH)


What vaccines do students need to begin attending public school in fall 2015?

Children must be immunized against the following nine diseases: diphtheria, hepatitis B., measles, mumps, pertussis (whooping cough), poliomyelitis (polio), rubella, tetanus and varicella (chickenpox).


If a child starting first grade is up to date on vaccines, do they still need a physical exam?

Yes. The law requires that a health examination be completed up to 18 months before entry into first grade or within 90 days thereafter.


What about transitional kindergarten?

Transitional kindergarten entrants need to provide documentation of required kindergarten immunizations before admission.


If a child is in the process of having their required vaccinations completed, can they still enroll in school?

Yes. Children who are not currently due for any immunizations may be admitted on the condition that they will receive still-needed doses as they become due in the future.


If a parent has a personal belief exemption on file, will their child be allowed to go to school?

Personal belief exemptions submitted before Jan. 1, 2016 will remain valid until a pupil reaches kindergarten or seventh grade. At that time, children with a valid personal belief exemption filed before 2016 will have to meet all age-appropriate immunization requirements for admission into K-12, or be enrolled in an independent study program with no classroom-based instruction or a home-based private school, unless a new medical exemption is submitted to the school.


Is there a limit to how old a personal belief exemption form is?

A completed Personal Beliefs Exemption to Required Immunizations form signed and dated within six months of entry to school fulfills documentation requirements.


If a student has had chicken pox in the past, do they need to get the varicella vaccine?

If a physician provides a written statement that a child has had varicella disease, then the child can be exempted from the varicella requirement. The signed statement must be presented at school registration.
