Welcome to the new Santa Maria-Bonita School District website!

The school board approves the Local Control Accountability Plan.
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a new document designed to help guide the school district’s spending and student programs over the next three years. Recently, the state of California changed the way that money is provided to schools. As part of those changes, school districts must create a written plan to show how the funding will be spent to ensure student success. In SMBSD, the LCAP provides information about additional educational opportunities for students such as expanded tutoring, more afterschool programs and targeted instruction from specialized teachers. The plan also outlines improvements to students’ access to technology, expansion of the Physical Education and Fine Arts programs, additional student health and counseling support, and parent education classes.  The LCAP will be reviewed every year and updated every three years as the district sees the successful results of its new and expanded programs.

SMBSD Host Google Summit
06/08/2014
On August 6th and 7th, more than 900 district teachers, administrators and staff members participated in the Google Technology Summit hosted by SMBSD and held at Tommie Kunst Junior High. The intensive (and fun!) teacher training workshop focused on using Google Apps for Education and Chromebooks to expand the delivery of Common Core instruction in the classroom, collaborate with colleagues and improve productivity. Workshop sessions ranged from beginning levels to advanced and included topics such as Google Drive for Close Reading, 10 Terrific Ways to Use Chrome in the Classroom, YouTube Exploration, and Virtual Field Trips. SMBSD teachers became hands-on students during the two days, learning from tech gurus how to make the best use of the 5,200+ Chromebook tablets that reside in mobile carts throughout the 19 district schools. The Chromebooks are a new tool that our talented teachers and administrators can use to make learning even more interactive and meaningful for students, not just once in a while, but every day, in many ways.
