Twin Rivers USD Embarks on a New Pathway to Student Engagement
Feel the Difference!
With a vision for academic success and a new climate in its classrooms, Twin Rivers Unified embarks this fall on a ground-breaking effort to better connect students to a bright future.
Under the leadership of second year Superintendent Steve Martinez, Ed.D., and the Board of Trustees, the “Feel the Difference!” effort includes enhanced staffing and enriched curriculum. It also puts new emphasis on teachers, staff and administrators to look creatively for a pathway leading all students to college and career readiness.
“We’re sending a clear message that all of us need to do more to support what’s going on in our classrooms,” said Dr. Martinez. “We must increase graduation rates. Our students have to look beyond obtaining a high school diploma to compete in a global economy.”
With additional state funding, the district offers an impressive list of classroom enhancements with a rigorous focus on teaching and learning—33 additional elementary teachers to reduce class sizes; 20 teachers to enhance K-6 visual and performing arts; and 10 positions to support English learners.
There’s a new early literacy program and expanded world language classes for middle school. The district is also offering more Advanced Placement (AP) classes, and working to increase student access to the college level courses.
As part of the “Feel the Difference!” effort, the district will continue its strong emphasis on student attendance, an area of concern in all grades, especially among early learners.
“We are deeply committed to making sure we have positive outcomes for all students,” said Dr. Martinez. “We have to make every day count and that’s not going to happen if kids are not in our classrooms.”
Toward that end, the district is hiring 13 new vice principals and counselors. Twin Rivers is also implementing a software-based attendance management system that will better link teachers and district administrators with parents and students.
Teachers, principals and district staff will regularly monitor student attendance—looking not just for troubling trends but also for intervention opportunities to support student needs.
Parents will be alerted to issues regarding their child’s attendance. School and district staff will hold meetings to link families with valuable school and community resources to address the causes of attendance concerns early.
The idea, Dr. Martinez said, is to engage the entire school community that good performance starts with good attendance habits.
“Our commitment is strong and our mission is clear,” he said. “We must inspire each student to extraordinary achievement every day of our 180-day school year. Our unwavering focus is on educational excellence in all schools for all students, with the entire community working with us to ensure that happens.”

Letter from Dr. Steven Martinez, Superintendent
As we begin another great school year, we know you have questions about the status of Sacramento County Public Health’s (SCPH) tuberculosis (TB) contact investigation at one of our schools and in the surrounding community.
Public health concerns like TB are significant issues for communities throughout the state and across the country. In Sacramento County alone last year there were 84 cases of active TB. Children and adults can become infected when traveling and through family members or visitors who have the active disease.
In an effort to communicate strongly and clearly about TB and its impact, we have prepared the following information to answer questions you may have.
What do we know?
Right now there are no known infectious cases of tuberculosis in our schools. However, a Grant Union High School (GUHS) student was diagnosed with active TB in February 2014. The student was successfully treated, is no longer infectious, and medically cleared to return to school in April of this year. As part of the initial contact investigation, four students were diagnosed with active TB. It’s important to note they are also on medical treatment and they are not contagious. Another 120 students and staff tested positive for exposure to TB (latent TB). This means that their immune system has encountered the TB bacteria and has contained the infection. They are not sick and cannot pass TB infection to others. They are receiving preventive treatment so they don’t develop active TB in the future.
SCPH has screened 605 GUHS students and staff. Public Health Officer Dr. Olivia Kasirye has assured us that ALL exposure to the disease occurred PRIOR to March, during the time the active case was in school.
What happens now?
All GUHS families will receive an informational letter from SCPH about next steps and the upcoming TB clinic at Grant. We will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with SCPH. The next clinic is scheduled to take place Aug. 22 in the Auxiliary Gym on the main campus. The focus is on individuals who were part of the original contact investigation who did not return for subsequent monitoring and a third group identified by public health officials. TB screenings will also be available from 3 to 5 p.m. on the same day for any student or staff member who wants to be tested. Everyone who is screened must return Aug. 25 so medical personnel can read their TB skin test.
Since the original case in February, our District—in collaboration with SCPH—has held two community forums and two separate sessions with parents of students who had positive skin tests. Dr. Kasirye also met twice with the Grant staff.
In addition, we are working with two independent TB consultants on implementing a Community TB Action Plan, which includes:
Yolanda Mayoral Falkenberg, the district’s Family and Community Involvement Coordinator, is our contact for all community and staff TB related questions. You can reach her at 566-1600, ext. 50035.
Please know that we are making every effort to assure the health and well-being of our students and staff, and we appreciate your cooperation in helping us to protect your health and the health of the community.

School Wide Kendama Ban
Due to an over abundance of issues related to kendamas being on campus, starting Monday October 28, 2013, kendamas will not be allowed on campus at Rio Linda Preparatory Academy. Students should keep their kendamas at home or risk them being confiscated by school staff. Unfortunately, the rise of problems such as theft, students/staff being hit by kendamas, and class distractions have alleviated to the point that a school wide ban has become necessary at RLPA. Any questions or concerns should be directed to school staff or administration.
