It enables schools and communities to collect and analyze data regarding local youth health risks and behaviors, school connectedness, school climate, protective factors, and school violence.

Newark Unified School District strives for continuous improvement in our service to students and families. We achieve this through evaluating our outcomes, identifying strengths, developing recommendations for improvement, and refining our practices.

One of the ways we evaluate our strengths and find areas for improvement is by asking parents/guardians about their experiences and recommendations.

Please take a few minutes to provide us feedback that will inform our areas of focus for improvement, our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), and our future practices.

Join the Newark Unified School District after-school instrumental music program. The program is open to incoming 4th, 5th and 6th grade students and is funded by the Newark Educational Foundation. Students will learn to play one of a variety of instruments and perform in the Elementary Band.

Why should you learn to play and better understand music?

  • Learning an instrument is FUN and develops discipline
  • Practicing an instrument increases a student’s ability to focus
  • Studies show that learning music early in one’s life greatly improves mathematical and abstract thinking abilities

We will also have instrument demonstrations and a question and an-swer session. Classes will meet Mondays and Wednesdays at Birch Grove Inter-mediate.
