Update* Middle School Parent Meetings Regarding Cell Phone Use

Dear Parents,

The Hollister School District would like to invite you to attend one of two Parent Meetings regarding middle school student cell phone use. We are holding two meetings to increase parent participation, especially for those parents who work out of town.

The meetings are scheduled for:

Monday, July 22, 2019 at 5pm in the Rancho San Justo Lunch Quad

Monday, July 22, 2019 at 7pm in the Gabilan Hills Gymnasium

The meeting will feature a short presentation on the concerns related to student cell phone use. Parents will have the opportunity to review and provide input on a draft cell phone policy for the 2019-2020 school year. We look to seeing you at this event.

Hollister School District Fills Special Education Positions

Recent Hollister School District (HSD) employee recruitment efforts are working to address the need for special education staff in the district. Beginning in February, district administration developed a plan to assertively recruit new school psychologists, occupational therapists, nurses, board certified behavior analysts and special education teachers.

“Our district made the recruitment of highly qualified special education staff a priority,” Superintendent Diego Ochoa said. “In prior years, we relied heavily on the services of outside contractors and we chose to move away from that model. We knew that our educational programs would greatly improve if we could hire and train our own permanent staff. I’m most excited for our students, staff, and parents.”
