Family & Community
From early childhood through high school, UCFSD offers outstanding learning experiences to educate and empower students. Our district is rich in tradition, proud of our students and educators, and supportive of our vision, to unlock the potential in all of us. UCFSD does more than just teach children how to read, write and take tests. We foster a love of learning, teach students how to be critical thinkers, and set them on the path for success
Family and community involvements foster partnerships among schools, family and community groups, and individuals. These partnerships result in sharing and maximizing resources. And they help children and youth develop healthy behaviors and promote healthy families.
UCFSD Elementary Book Study
Using research and learning from educational leaders is a common practice of our school district.
The elementary teaching staff engaged in a year-long collaborative study about how people learn. Within the context of four core books, teams of professional staff investigated the intricacies of learning. Learning is at the core of everything we do in school. From academic, social-emotional, and the physical, understanding how we learn is key to our success as educators.
While focusing on enhancing instructional practices, designing minds-on activities and resources for students, and informing and supporting our community, the objective of the book study was to build professional connections and reflect on our practices as educators.
