2017/2018 School Year Information
FIRST DAY of 2017/2018 SCHOOL YEAR
The first day of school for the 2017-2018 school year is Thursday, August 17, 2017. All registered students MUST be in their assigned seat on the first day of school. Any student who is not in class on the first day of school will be DROPPED from the enrollment and their name will be placed at the bottom of the registration list. The student may be overflowed to another school if a seat is unavailable when they return to school. This applies to all students, new and returning.
This is a request to transfer from your assigned resident school to another school within Milpitas Unified School District. To qualify, your child must be living within the Milpitas Unified School District and enrolled at the resident school during the lottery process. Request forms and additional information will be available at your resident school and the district office beginning March 1, 2017. Only the following schools will be accepting requests for the 2017-2018 school year: Burnett, Randall, Rose Elementary, and Rancho Middle School.
Transfers approved for the 2016-2017 school year will expire in May 2017. An approved inter-district transfer request must be on file for non-residents to continue attending school in the Milpitas Unified School District for the 2017-2018 school year. Please contact your District of Residence to begin the process. Applications for the 2017-2018 school year will be accepted beginning April 3, 2017 and may be dropped off to District Transfers at the District Office,Building 200, Room 213.
The California School Dashboard is a new website that parents/guardians, educators and the public can use to see how districts and schools are meeting the needs of California’s student population based on multiple measures included in the new accountability system.
The Dashboard will allow Spangler parents to search by school and includes a set of easy-to-use reports showing district or school performance on 6 state indicators and 4 local indicators in different levels of detail.
Our school will receive one of five color-coded performance levels on the state indicators. From highest to lowest, the five performance levels are: blue, green, yellow, orange, red, with green being the target to reach. The overall performance level that our school will receive is based on how our current performance (status) compares to our past performance (change). This will help provide a more complete picture of Spangler's performance than a point-in-time snapshot, along with recognizing improvement as part of overall performance.
During our upcoming Spangler SBAC parent night on April 6 at 6:30, we will be reviewing Spangler's dashboard reports. So, we hope you will join us to learn more about the dashboard and our student's progress.
In the meantime, if you would like to review Spangler's dashboard reports, please click here.
This video provides an overview of California's new multiple measures accountability system. It describes the measures in the new Dashboard Report and how performance and improvement are used to determine the performance colors.

March Book of the Month: Mesmerized by Marla Rockliff
The idea behind a school-wide Book of the Month is that each month every Spangler student has the opportunity to read a common text, and engage in learning, thinking, and responding to that shared text.
When all students and adults in a school share a common experience around literature, it helps to not only unify and create a literacy learning community, but to provide a shared experience for all students while emphasizing the behaviors and habits of mind schools want students to emulate.
