On October 27, 2016, the El Rancho Unified School District sold bonds to refinance a portion of its outstanding general obligation bonds to take advantage of historically low interest rates. The refinancing, resulting in $1.7 million in lower bond payments, will reduce overall taxes for Pico Rivera property owners.

The El Rancho Unified School District Board of Trustees voted to call a school bond and parcel tax election at a special meeting on August 5, 2016 which proposes to place a measure on the November 8, 2016 ballot. The proposed issuance of school bonds will modernize and rebuild El Rancho High School, prepare students for jobs of the future, improve and expand science and career training labs and repair and improve neighborhood schools. The proposed parcel tax will raise teacher salaries, retain quality teachers and support staff and provide every student access to a high quality arts education as well as improve instruction in science, technology, engineering arts and math.
The El Rancho Unified School District applauds Governor Jerry Brown’s signing of AB 2016 introduced by Assemblymember Luis Alejo (D-Salinas) to create the first statewide model Ethnic Studies curriculum. The El Rancho Unified School District Board of Education made a historical decision in June 2014 by being the first district in California to adopt Ethnic Studies as a high school graduation requirement to prepare students for a 21st century multicultural, global economy. More than 20 other school districts have followed their lead by adopting similar resolutions. "Two years ago the ERUSD Board of Education recognized the importance of providing all students with a comprehensive and inclusive Ethnic Studies curriculum that empowers them and prepares them to thrive in a multicultural, global society,” commented Board President Dr. Aurora Villon. “The Governor's approval of AB 2016 validates the very important role Ethnic Studies plays in preparing students for the 21st Century.”

During the pre-game festivities at El Rancho High School Homecoming on Friday, October 7, 2016 at 7:00 PM, ERHS will celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the 1966 Dons football team who were awarded the National Championship and California State Championship. In the 1960s El Rancho High School football teams established themselves as one of the most respected high school football programs in California. The 1966 El Rancho team went 13-0 and outscored the opposition 516-68 while shutting out six opponents that year. The Dons were coached by the legendary Ernie Johnson. When the 1966 22 member all-league team was announced, 17 of the players were Dons. It was, in many ways, the perfect team. The Dons never trailed in a game that season, and rarely played their first string after the first half. More than 40 years later, the legacy of “The Ranch” still lives.
