Superintendent's Message

On behalf of the El Rancho Unified Board of Education, I would like to welcome you back to the 2015-16 school year! Over these last two years our district has grown its academic program as well as our social/emotional supports for our students. Based on our parent, student and community input through our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) we are responding to your ideas in order to provide the best learning environments for your children that will ensure their future success.

Don’t forget - beginning with the first day of school in August and continuing for the rest of the school year, our schools will open their gates at 7:00 a.m. to welcome our students. We hope you and your children will take advantage of this opportunity that will also help you as a parent to get to work on time and know your children are safe, having a healthy breakfast and are with their peers in the morning.

In cooperation with the Los Angeles County Office of Education, we will also continue and deepen our focus on daily attendance. Through our attendance campaign, “The Power of One - I’m In,” we expect that students will attend school- every day, on-time, and for the full day each and every day. The exception is when your child is ill.

During the summer, our staff has been busy at work deep cleaning, painting and upgrading our facilities. We will be ready for the first day of school! In addition, through your bond dollars, there is a new air conditioning system in the B-Building at El Rancho High School that will provide relief to our students and staff!

Our teachers also participated in professional development in math, language arts, science, English language development and project-based learning. As a result of this training, we will be increasing the rigor of our instructional program and further align our teaching and learning based on the California Common Core State Standards.  It is our expectation that ERUSD teachers and administrators will ignite a passion for learning beyond the classroom in an environment that allows our students to collaborate, communicate, be creative, and become critical thinkers.

In the coming month, we look forward to seeing you and your children on the first day of school, at our Back-to-School Nights, and the ribbon cutting events for our new academies. Please be on the lookout for our ERUSD Highlights Edition and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter @ElRanchoSchools.
