San Marcos Unified School District is leading the way in making 21st century learning a reality for all students

The San Marcos Unified School District (SMUSD) is actively engaging the community in developing a Portrait of a Graduate, a collective vision that articulates the community’s aspirations for all San Marcos Unified students.

“Our mission is to ensure our students are challenged, inspired and poised to excel—as school leaders, we must continually ask ourselves what this looks like in our 21st century global economy,” said SMUSD Superintendent, Dr. Andy Johnsen. 

The district has recruited a dynamic Portrait of a Graduate Design Team, a working group of nearly 100 business & community leaders, local elected officials, parents, students and alumni, to discuss the relevant skills students need, and the aspirations our community has for our young people.

“We want to know what are the hopes, dreams, and aspirations our community has for our children, and what learning experiences will prepare them for the future—and we can’t do that alone,” says SMUSD Superintendent, Dr. Andy Johnsen.

Over the next few months this team will be meeting to embark on this important work which will help shape the future of education in San Marcos. 

The first meeting will be held tomorrow night:

Meeting Schedule:

Meeting 1: TOMORROW January 12, 2022, 5:30pm-8:30pm 

*Due to the recent COVID surges in our county and to provide the safest approach to our meeting, we will conduct this first meeting via Zoom.

Meeting 2: January 24, 2022, 5:30pm-8:30pm 

Meeting 3: February 9, 2022, 5:30pm-8:30pm 

Meeting 4: March 9, 2022, 5:30pm-8:30pm

“It’s essential that our district collaborates with our community to create a Portrait that describes what our students need to be ready for life,” said Superintendent Johnsen. “Success depends on more than just what you know, but also how you communicate, collaborate, innovate, and think critically.”

The district plans to share its progress of the Portrait of a Graduate work with families and community members.

Sets Kitchen and Bar dazzles in San Elijo Hillsby David BoylanJanuary 10, 2022315To be honest I never really knew much about San Elijo Hills other than driving through it a few times on my way to San Marcos.

2022 San Diego County Real Estate Forecast 

The bottom line: 2022 will continue where housing in 2021 left off, INSANELY HOT. It will be an Insane Seller’s Market (an Expected Market Time below 40-days) from the start of the year through the Summer Market. Multiple offers and bidding wars will be the norm for homes priced below $2 million. Once again, the market will heavily favor sellers and buyers will have to pack their patience to isolate their piece of the American Dream and take advantage of record-low mortgage rates. From mid-August on, the beginning of the Autumn Market, housing will evolve into a Hot Seller’s Market (an Expected Market Time between 40 and 60 days) with a bit less activity, not quite as many multiple offers, and fewer homes selling above their asking prices.

Interest rates will be a factor in 2022 Real Estate Market
