SARCs are posted at http://www.nvusd.k12.ca.us/sarcpage. Hard copies are also available at each school site upon request. Please contact your school office to obtain a copy.

Open Enrollment Begins December 1st
Napa Valley Unified School District’s enrollment process for the August 2015 to June 2016 school year will begin on Monday, Dec. 1, including transitional kindergarten and kindergarten registration and open enrollment. This is earlier than in previous years. Also new this year: Parents can apply for open enrollment online, instead of the paper process of previous years.
Shearer Elementary School offers high quality curriculum to all of its students so that every child can grow academically, socially, and emotionally to be important contributors to the community. Academic programs are research based and Shearer’s teachers work closely to ensure that each student is making steady progress on short and long term goals. This is demonstrated through the use of school-wide teaching strategies with multiple cycles of instruction that include intervention and extension. Each child receives daily English language instruction at his or her level of development. Additionally, each child attends enrichment classes in music, art, physical education, and computers twice a week through the school year. Collaboration and problem solving are areas of particular focus at Shearer for both the staff and the student body. We follow the Positive Behavior Learning Model, which gives our diverse population and multi-lingual staff, a common understanding of respect, responsibility and safety along with a process for solving problems.
