Who is Fern Bacon?
Written by Dorothy Mack and Eleanor Bolton

Overview

Fern Huston Bacon, one of this area’s leading women educators, was a person of many accomplishments. She was not only an excellent administrator and teacher, but quoting from an article in the Sacramento Bee at the time of her retirement in March 1965, “If Fern Bacon had not spent 40 years teaching children and building schools in the Pacific School District, she might have been an accomplished pianist, a registered nurse, a champion skier or even a pretty good cowpoke on a California Ranch”. Fern’s main career was as an educator, but she was equally efficient in many other activities.

Evidence of Learning

Overview

SPSA

The School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is a document that represents a school’s cycle of continuous improvement of student performance. The annual process of developing, reviewing, and updating the SPSA includes a comprehensive review of data and the development of actions necessary to achieve school goals. The plan also addresses funding and proposed expenditures related to state and federal categorical programs and the overall goals of our District’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The SPSA contains the School Action Plan, School Parental Involvement Policy, and Home-School Compact. Each year, the School Site Council and the local governing board approve the SPSA.

The 2022-2023 SPSA was adopted by the SCUSD Board of Education on June 23, 2022.
