You will discover a host of facts about academic programs, capital improvement projects, day-to-day operations, our Board of Trustees, and a great deal of other information. Most importantly, I hope you will sense our genuine commitment to providing the best education possible for every child.
If you visit one of our schools, you will find that schools today are far more rigorous than they were twenty or thirty years ago. Academically, more is demanded of our students. With the ever-changing nature of the world and workforce, not only must today’s graduates be proficient in core academic subjects, they need to be critical thinkers, problem solvers and effective communicators. They need global awareness, financial, economic and civic literacy. These are 21st century skills that are in demand for all graduates, no matter what their future holds. In line with our district’s Strategic Plan and Focus Areas, we are integrating 21st century learning skills with rigorous and relevant academic instruction. Our top priority is to continue to raise the bar so students are learning at higher levels and gaining the skills they will need to compete in an economy that runs on information and demands creativity and innovation.
Although we face reduced funding from the State of California that has led to unprecedented budget challenges, through shared commitment, thoughtful planning and a strong accountability system, we continue to build an even better educational program that will inspire all of our students to do their very best.
