Total Solar Eclipse Event – August 21, 2017

It is going to be an astronomical day of school for El Rancho Unified School District on August 21st when we get to experience a total solar eclipse event for the first time since 1979. This is an amazing opportunity to learn about astronomy by experiencing a celestial phenomenon.

We recognize this unique opportunity to engage our students in one of nature’s great educational events, and also the importance of ensuring the safety of all students and staff. If teachers and students are planning to view the eclipse, they will need to use approved eyewear. Contact your school directly to learn of activities planned for the day.

El Rancho Unified families are encouraged to discuss with their student important safety guidelines. Safety guidelines may be found on the website links located on this webpage.



Karling Aguilera-Fort was named superintendent of the El Rancho Unified School District at a meeting of the Governing Board on August 8, 2017 by a unanimous vote of the Board. Mr. Aguilera-Fort is presently an Assistant Superintendent in the San Francisco Unified School District. He possesses site, district, regional, and PK-Grade 12 experience, and has supervised, coached, and mentored school leaders at all levels. Mr. Aguilera-Fort is a firm believer in developing the whole child. He states, “We must support the development of the whole educator in order to provide the tools and mindset to address the needs of the students we receive every day in our classrooms.”

“Mr. Aguilera-Fort is an exceptional educator with a passion for improving and enhancing educational opportunities for students. He has demonstrated that he will be a collaborative and student centered leader who will help our schools and students succeed,” said School Board President Dr. Aurora Villon.
