Alternative School Information Meeting

  • Alternative School Information Meeting

    To learn more about the CUSD alternative programs, please join CUSD staff and Alternative School Principals at an information session on October 29, 2018, from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM at Collins Elementary School (10300 N Blaney Ave, Cupertino, CA 95014).

    *This meeting allows families an opportunity to learn about each alternative program at once but does not satisfy the meeting/tour requirement for the alternative school lottery.
