ASB has planned a special dance Under the Deep Blue Sea Kindness Counts!! We will have games, snacks and of course dancing at this special event. There is no cost to attend. Hope to see you all there and bring a friend!!!


Have you moved or are you planning to move out of Vista del Mar’s area?  If so, you must apply on-line for School of Choice to be considered for next year at VdMMS.   


The School of Choice application window is February 1, 2016 through March 4, 2016. If your child is currently enrolled in 6th or 7th grade at our school site on School of Choice, they will automatically be registered for the following year and you do not need to apply for School of Choice. If students are matriculating into the middle school or high school, they do need to apply. Any students at a school on administrative placement must apply for School of Choice to remain. Students on SOC who wish to return to their school of residence must apply through School of Choice. Vista del Mar Middle School (not elementary) is an OPEN school next year.


If you have any questions regarding School of Choice, please see the CUSD School of Choice webpage. If you cannot find the answer to your questions there, please call the customer service line at 949-234-9335.

LCAP Process Underway In California School Districts

School districts are currently working on the development of its Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Under the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), districts have much more discretion in how they spend their funding. However, they must develop a detailed plan to show how the money will be used to improve achievement and to meet the needs of low-income students, English learners and foster children. Districts must collect input and suggestions from parents, students, staff and community members. Please see the attached Local Control Accountability Plan Report for more information.
