El Rancho High School Construction Project Update

Dear ERUSD Community,
As you may know, the ERUSD Board of Education has requested to review and to discuss the different budget options that will allow us to continue with the construction project for El Rancho High School. As part of the process, we have stopped all construction activities related to the El Rancho High School project until we have the following in place:
1) Clear scenarios for construction with specific projected costs.
2) Clear budget options for the duration of the entire project.
3) Clear options to minimize the impact of taxes on the citizens of the City of Pico Rivera.
4) Clear budget and construction options that will keep the district financially stable.
5) A short- and long-term plan for supervision, monitoring, and evaluation of the investments related to this project. This will require the allocation of District staff to partner with the agencies that manage the actual construction.

The El Rancho Unified School District Board of Education and staff are committed to fulfilling the commitment made with the residents of the City of Pico Rivera. And, we are committed to ensuring that the project will be completed with a budget that the District and the community can afford.

There will be a Special Board meeting on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 5:00 PM to discuss the different scenarios related to this project.

Public Statement Regarding Released Employee

Mr. Karling Aguilera-Fort, Superintendent of El Rancho Unified School District, released the following statement:

“Recently, an employee at El Rancho High School was accused of inappropriate behavior. Consistent with District policy, the employee was suspended immediately thereafter, precluding any contact with students. El Rancho Unified School District staff investigated and reported the accusation to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, whose personnel have also investigated. Following the investigation, the employee was terminated from employment with the District.

“Student safety is El Rancho Unified School District’s top operational priority, and effective and transparent communication with our parents and community stakeholders is critical to maintaining it. At no point did I, or any member of the Board of Education, direct staff to keep pertinent information from parents. Parents should rest assured that El Rancho Unified School District is, has been, and will be completely transparent when it comes to information that keeps our students safe. Although we generally cannot comment on the specifics of personnel matters, I encourage any parent who has questions to contact the Superintendent’s Office directly at (562) 801-7300."
