Stevens Creek Elementary School will open its doors with the 2018-19 school year. To prepare for the opening, and the implementation of the new elementary school boundaries, there are changes that will happen across our school district. As we work to set the start and dismissal times for Stevens Creek, we are taking the opportunity to examine our whole transportation system and all of our current school schedules. This process may result in adjustments to current start and dismissal times at schools across the district. Changes at the secondary level would be minimal, perhaps a few minutes, but at the elementary level start times may change by up to 30 minutes.

Becoming certified by Microsoft is no small task. After learning a software program and practicing a myriad of techniques you have 50 minutes to complete an online examination. You must earn a score of at least 700 out of 1,000 points.
