News & Announcements

From CUSD :

Santa Clara County school districts have been eagerly awaiting an update from the County Office of Education and Public Health Department.  On June 30th,  a press conference was held by those Departments to announce new guidelines for the 20-21 school year. This document is publicly available and is titled COVID-19 Prepared: Reopening of Santa Clara County K-12 Schools for the 2020-2021 School Year.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear parents,

Silicon Valley Chinese School 2020-2021 board members have been elected through virtual ballot counting on June 3. There are four newly elected board members, Connie Chiang, Derek Wu, Paul Sun, Steve Hsia, and three incumbents, Andy Chern, Elaine Hu and Ronald Mg. Congratulations to them all and I look forward to seeing SVCS to provide the best Chinese education under their leadership for the years to come.

Once again, I thank all current board members for their services. Together, under this year’s unprecedented challenges, we had not only completed school without interruption. We had abided our mission to provide better Chinese education to our children through inexhaustibility and perseverance. At last but not the least, I wish you all a relaxing summer time and come back fresh the beginning of next school year.


Thank you all for your support and effort in coping with this COVID-19 pandemic. We sincerely wish you and your family well and we are soon over the hump of this outbreak.
In this coming week, class rep will forward you the blank registration form for 2020-2021 school year. In order not to divulge personal information, we decided not to fill out individual student information on each registration form. We kindly ask parents to fill in all necessary information and forward the complete form to each class’s vice representatives.
As you are all aware, Silicon Valley Chinese School (SVCS) is a non-profit organization. All staffs and board members are parent volunteers without pay. Income from students' tuition are all used for teachers' salaries, classroom rental, textbooks, insurance for teachers and students, and some limited student activities. Despite relentless effort in reducing school wide expenses, our income has been lagging the increase of facility rental and insurance cost. Our school board has approved the tuition increase for the 2020-2021 school year during December board meeting. This increase of tuition income will offset the increase of facility rental and insurance cost while provide a competitive and equitable salary to our dedicated teachers. We will be able retain out highly qualified faculty and maintain SVCS’s small class size.
We are looking for 100% returning enrollment. We understand some of our families might have financial hardship due to this pandemic. Please contact school and investigate the possibility of applying for tuition assistance. The last thing we want to see the student drops out school. We will work with family to come up applicable solution.
Finally, wish all of you safe and healthy.

Sincerely,
 Angela Chen
President, 2019-2020 Board

 

## FAQ (Regarding registration and things for next school year) :

 Q : Why the returning registration due is on 5/1 and cannot be extended ?

 A : School does need staff resources and time to thoroughly process the registration data after returning-student registration deadline, therefore we cannot extend the current 5/1 registration due any more. Thank you for your understanding. 

Q : When we can go back to Lynbrook High for in-person class sessions ?

 A : Regarding when we can go back Lynbrook high classrooms, as long as Lynbrook high classrooms are opened to us again, we will return and have classes there immediately.

 Q : When will be the 2nd Placement Test for school year 2020 ~ 2021 ?

A : Due to COVID-19 pandemic, currently school plans to hold the 2nd Placement test on 7/18/2020(Sat). Location is TBD and will be updated here once it is determined.

Q : When is the 2020~2021 SVCS board election ballot counting event ?

 A : We will have ballot counting event held through Google online meeting on 6/3 (Wed) 7 ot 8 PM through meeting link :

Q: Will the school give trophy for this year's academic contest winners? And when?

A: Yes, however due to COVID-19, the distribution of trophy will be delayed till next school year starts.

Q: What text books will school use for coming school year?

A: After evaluating with teachers and staffs, school has decided to use the text book below for the following years.

Heritage grade 1~9 classes: MeiZhou Chinese leve1~9

Heritage kindergarden : Let's learn Chinese basic

CSL1~8 : Let's Learn Chinese basic ~ book7

Q: Why does school decide to changes text book for CSL class?

A: There was inconsistency on the materials CSL classes used in past years. And that results in different standard across the CSL levels and creates program/gaps when students translate to next grade level or advance to Heritage class. To address those issues, school and teachers evaluated the text books and decided to adopt "Let's learn Chinese" text book recommended by OCAC (Overseas Community Affairs Council).

Sincerely hope the COVID-19 pandemic will greatly slow down soon and all of us please keep well and stay healthy !
