Reopening of Holbrook Elementary

On August 22, the MDUSD Board voted to officially re-open Holbrook Elementary in Concord for the 2017-2018 school year. Exploratory planning to reopen the school, which has been closed since 2012 due to declining enrollment and state budget cuts, began earlier this year.

On September 29, the community was invited to a meeting on the Holbrook campus to discuss facility plans and programs and talk about the future of the campus. An academic program survey has been developed for the community to provide input along with proposed themes for the school, including: technology (integration of technology into the curriculum that is student-centered and aligned to the Common Core State Standards); visual and performing arts (school-wide focus, e.g. music, art, theater); Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics or “STEM” (school-wide focus in these four areas extended beyond the standards and hands-on), and project-based learning (classroom approach in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge). For additional information, contact Stephanie Roberts, director of Special Projects, at 925-682-8000 x6203, or robertss@mdusd.org. The survey can be found on the MDUSD website, www.mdusd.org.
