The 2018-19 school year promises to be filled with innovation and collaboration. The use of student technology to enhance instruction has never been greater. The opportunity for our teachers to collaborate through professional learning communities using student data is a powerful instructional tool.
Parent engagement, a priority within the Local Control Accountability Plan, allows for collaboration and transparency for every action and investment to provide a 21st Century education for all students, with a focus on English learners, foster youth, and socio-economically disadvantaged students.
Meeting the needs of the 21st Century learner is the focus of Measure V. Our Facilities, M&O, Technology, and Purchasing divisions have been especially busy with Measure V projects since the start of summer. Projects include new high school playing fields, shade structures, and digital marquees; deploying instructional technology in classrooms districtwide; and added security measures such as thumb-operated door locks for classrooms. Roofing, painting and other repair work is getting priority attention, too.
High school students on a path to college or career readiness will have new opportunities resulting from a $3.5 million CTEIG grant for modernization of several Career Technical Education (CTE) programs at all three comprehensive high schools.
Preparing all students for career and college success is a shared responsibility, and I am proud of this joint commitment from all employees, for all students. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, welcome to LEUSD, and thank you.
