    Posted by Mr. Larry King on 4/2/2020

    Good evening parents and students.  This is Mr. King, superintendent of the AADUSD.  The message from Governor Gavin Newsom, State Superintendent of Instruction, Tony Thurmond, and LACOE Superintendent, Dr. Debra Duardo, has been consistent over the past 48 hours.  They have all recommended that schools across the state remain closed through the remainder of the school year. 

    The decision to close a school rests within the scope of the local school board and superintendent, at least at this point in time.  I am in agreement that keeping our schools closed to the public for the remainder of the school year is the most prudent thing to do for the protection of our students, staff, families, and community members. 

    This is an extremely difficult recommendation I will be making to the Board of Education next Thursday evening.  Pending Board approval of my recommendation we will continue to provide instruction for the remainder of the school year through distance learning.  This is not an early start to a summer break.  Our teachers, administrators, and support staff have worked extremely hard to ensure your student’s education continues. 

    In Los Angeles County the number of people who have tested positive for the coronavirus continues to rise each day.  It is my opinion that we must continue to do our part by practicing social distancing whenever and wherever possible. 

    Students, our teachers are here for you.  Please know you can request to speak to your teacher anytime.  They will make time for you as they always have.  Parents, the same applies to you.  We know how difficult this is.  Many of our teachers have their own children at home and understand firsthand the challenges you are facing. 

    While I know many of us are angry, hurt, sad, or frustrated that all the amazing activities that normally take place at the end of the school year are now cancelled, at least any live version of those activities.  We have to find new and innovative ways to celebrate student successes through the use of technology such as live video streaming.  We owe that to our students. 

    Thank you, be safe, be healthy, and have a good evening.

    Buenas tardes padres y alumnos. Este es el Sr. King, superintendente de AADUSD. El mensaje del Gobernador Gavin Newsom, el Superintendente de Instrucción del Estado, Tony Thurmond, y el Superintendente de LACOE, Dra. Debra Duardo, ha sido constante durante las últimas 48 horas. Todos han recomendado que las escuelas en todo el estado permanezcan cerradas durante el resto del año escolar.

    La decisión de cerrar una escuela está dentro del alcance de la junta escolar local y el superintendente, al menos en este momento. Estoy de acuerdo en que mantener nuestras escuelas cerradas al público por el resto de los años escolares es lo más prudente para proteger a nuestros estudiantes, personal, familias y miembros de la comunidad.

    Esta es una recomendación extremadamente difícil que haré a la Junta de Educación el próximo jueves por la noche. En espera de la aprobación de mi recomendación por parte de la Junta, continuaremos brindando instrucción para el resto de la escuela a través del aprendizaje a distancia. Este no es un comienzo temprano para las vacaciones de verano. Nuestros maestros, administradores y personal de apoyo han trabajado muy duro para garantizar que la educación de sus estudiantes continúe.

    En el condado de Los Ángeles, el número de personas que dieron positivo para el coronavirus continúa aumentando cada día. Es mi opinión que debemos continuar haciendo nuestra parte practicando el distanciamiento social siempre que sea posible. Somos una función esencial y, por lo tanto, continuamos operando en todas las áreas de mantenimiento, operaciones, nómina, contabilidad, personal e instrucción. La forma en que llevamos a cabo este trabajo ha cambiado drásticamente y estamos agradecidos por su paciencia y comprensión.

    Estudiantes, nuestros maestros están aquí para ustedes. Tenga en cuenta que puede solicitar hablar con su maestro en cualquier momento. Te harán tiempo como siempre lo han hecho. Padres, lo mismo se aplica a ustedes. Sabemos lo difícil que es esto. Muchos de nuestros maestros tienen sus propios hijos en casa y entienden de primera mano los desafíos que enfrenta.

    Si bien sé que muchos de nosotros estamos enojados, heridos, tristes o frustrados porque todas las actividades increíbles que normalmente tienen lugar al final del año escolar ahora se cancelan, al menos cualquier versión en vivo de esas actividades. Tenemos que encontrar formas nuevas e innovadoras para celebrar los éxitos de los estudiantes mediante el uso de tecnología como la transmisión de video en vivo. Se lo debemos a nuestros estudiantes.

    Gracias, esté seguro, saludable y que tenga una buena noche.

  • I am so proud of our staff, students, parents, the Board of Education, and the community.  This is my first attempt at creating my own video.  I hope it conveys a fraction of the gratitude I feel for the people I work with every day and our students.  I will continue to post more videos that contain specific updates as I receive information from the Los Angeles County Office of Education and the California Department of Education.

  • Carol Dweck Revisits the 'Growth Mindset'

    Posted by Yolanda McCauley on 11/1/2017

    Starry Night by Sean Parker

    Today, we'd like to share something a little different. This is an article that we at Acton-Agua Dulce USD found truly inspiring and we believe you will too! We hope you enjoy the read, and we thank Education Week for producing such fantastic content!

    Carol Dweck Revisits the 'Growth Mindset' - Education Week
    By Carol Dweck

    "For many years, I secretly worked on my research. I say “secretly” because, once upon a time, researchers simply published their research in professional journals—and there it stayed.

    However, my colleagues and I learned things we thought people needed to know. We found that students’ mindsets—how they perceive their abilities—played a key role in their motivation and achievement, and we found that if we changed students’ mindsets, we could boost their achievement. More precisely, students who believed their intelligence could be developed (a growth mindset) outperformed those who believed their intelligence was fixed (a fixed mindset). And when students learned through a structured program that they could “grow their brains” and increase their intellectual abilities, they did better. Finally, we found that having children focus on the process that leads to learning (like hard work or trying new strategies) could foster a growth mindset and its benefits."
