A Purposeful Community

  • Strong communities work together to reach common goals and achieve a bright future for everyone. At CJUSD, we believe in building a Purposeful Community by making strong connections between the business and professional communities, local government, other educational partners and community-based organizations, and our district, parents and students.

    This page highlights some of the work we are doing through this initiative and our Community Cabinet and provides an opportunity to get involved.

    CJUSD Community Cabinet formed in August 2013 with the goal of bringing a diverse group of partners together to support schools and build community involvement in education.

    The effort includes representatives from business, government, other educational entities, community, non-profit and faith-based organizations and parents, all recognizing that success for our students will provide a strong workforce and more economic growth for our entire region.

    In its inaugural year, Community Cabinet members formed committees to focus on four key priority areas: Mental & Physical Health Awareness, Literacy, Early Preparation, and Academic and Career Readiness. Projects included a resource fair, literacy festival, parenting skills workshops and a career week.

    As we move through the 2016-17 school year, Community Cabinet continues to focus its mission through ongoing dialogue with students, teachers, and principals. We also continue to pursue ways to make direct connections between our community professionals and our students, such as mock interviews, career fairs, mentoring and internships.
