What's Happening at SJISD?

  • Dear Parent/Guardian:

    In order for us to continue to improve as a school district and as a school, it is important for us to know how our parents/guardians regard the job we are doing in providing a quality education for all of our children.  Your feedback is crucial for us to know what you consider our strengths and our opportunities for growth.  The best way to gather this information is to survey our parents/guardians using a survey developed by the Center of Educational Effectiveness, a Bellevue, WA based research firm.

    To gather this information, we are asking that you take a few minutes to complete this very important survey.  The survey will only take about 15-20 minutes to complete.

    The information that we receive will be reported back to us as a building profile.  This profile will provide us with information to support our building school improvement plans. 

    We value your input as we strive to continue to improve our school.  Thank you for your feed-back.

    Superintendent, SJISD

    Estimados Padres de Familia/Tutores:

    Para que podamos continuar mejorando como distrito escolar y como escuela, es importante que sepamos qué piensan los padres de familia/tutores del trabajo que estamos haciendo al propor-cionar educación de calidad para todos nuestros niños. Su opinión es crucial para que sepamos lo que ustedes consideran nuestros puntos fuertes y nuestras oportunidades de crecimiento. La mejor manera de reunir esta información es a través de entrevistar a nuestros padres de familia/tutores, utilizando una encuesta desarrollada por el Centro de Eficacia Educativa, una firma de investigación, de Bellevue, WA.

    Para reunir dicha información estamos pidiendo que se tome unos pocos minutos de su tiempo para contestar esta tan importante encuesta. La encuesta le tomará solo 15-20 minutos aprox-imadamente.

    La información que recibamos se nos reportará como un perfil de entidad. Dicho perfil nos pro-porcionará información de apoyo para nuestros planes de mejoramiento escolar.

    Valoramos su opinión y nos esforzamos para continuar mejorando nuestra escuela. Les agrade-cemos su opinión.


    Danna Diaz, Ph.D.
    Superintendent, SJISD

Superintendent's Letter

  • January 2017

    Greetings Teachers, Staff, Parents, Students and Community Members: Happy Chinese New Year! I love the word new because of its meaning. A new year, new beginnings, new semester, and new knowledge. In 2017, we are starting off the year with new learnings!! In January, we launched ParentLink. The District has partnered with Blackboard (Education and Technology Services) to expand its communications outreach with a mobile app that is now available in the online iTunes® and Google Play® app stores for free. The latest district news and information is now available on smartphones and mobile devices. Amazing!

  • Decision on Sixth Grade Transition Postponed until March Board Meeting

    The decision by the San Juan Island School District Board of Directors on whether or not to move the sixth grade from the Friday Harbor Elementary School to Friday Harbor Middle School will be postponed until the regular school board meeting scheduled for March 29, 2017. At the January 18, 2017 special school board meeting/public hearing, the elementary staff made a presentation to the board in favor of the move, citing supportive research in pedagogy and issues of crowding in the elementary school. The Board is requesting information on the impact to the 2017-2018 school year budget before making a final decision. The decision process is compounded by the uncertainty of state funding to be received by the district in the next two years. Additional information is needed for district staff to provide a clear financial projection to the board.
