Superintendent’s Message

Paramount Unified School District has launched into its first round of facilities improvements funded by the $106 million Measure I, replacing air conditioning systems and providing students with new technology that has enhanced the District’s learning environment.
Since the city came together to pass Measure I, which funds updates, repairs and modernization of all of the District’s schools, Paramount Unified School District has been able to upgrade the air conditioning at Roosevelt Elementary and demolish the old portables at Captain Raymond Collins Elementary  School which will be updated with new ones. This fall, the Paramount High School West Campus has begun a modernization project that will improve classrooms and upgrade building structures.
“Measure I is a great collaborative for the city of Paramount that is allowing us to put our young people in a greater position for success,” Assistant Superintendent Ruben Frutos said. “We will continue to make strides with our infrastructure and technology that empower our student achievers.”
Approximately 10 percent of the bond funds are allocated to improving technology, and this fall the District has purchased new Chromebook laptops for all third-graders, sophomores and students of Leona Jackson Middle School. The laptops arrive as part of the District’s new tech implementation plan, which aims to provide a personal technology device to every student in grades 3-12 by 2020. More than 1,200 Paramount High School freshmen received the new Google Chromebooks in April, for a total of more than 4,000 distributed since last year.
Paramount Unified School District will continue to prioritize the scheduling of projects to be funded by the bond, which include:
●   Improving classrooms and labs for college preparation
●   Upgrading school security and electrical systems
●   Replacing aging portable buildings
●   Upgrading fire doors and smoke alarms
●   Repairing water pipes
●   Repairing deteriorating roofs
●   Replacing outdated portables with permanent new classrooms
●   Upgrading/equipping classrooms with modern technology
“We have a strong community that is committed to our children and that has allowed us to improve the learning environment for our students,” Paramount Superintendent Dr. Ruth Pérez said. “We are grateful to the citizens of Paramount Unified School District for their continued support.”
Sincerely, Dr. Ruth Pérez

High School Promise

In the spring of 2016, the Paramount Unified School District launched an ambitious undertaking: to reimagine high school. The High School Promise Initiative sparked a district-wide renewed commitment to more equitably prepare students for the demands and opportunities of college, career, and life in the 21st century. In concert with the district’s ambitious Strategic Plan, the High School Promise Initiative has been the catalyst for creating new opportunities for raising student achievement to new heights, including the launch of a  new small high school.

As the result of how schools in California are funded, all districts must write a Local Control and Accountability (LCAP) Plan. The purpose of this plan is to outline how the district will use Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) funds to meet the needs of students. Plans must align with eight state priorities and be updated annually. Each year the LCAP Committee meets to review the purpose of the plan, analyze academic data, district and school needs and discuss how to address future needs. The Committee includes teachers, administrators, classified staff, parents, high school students, and a member of the Board of Education.  PUSD’s Plan, which includes services and activities for 2017-2020,  was approved by the Los Angeles County of Education in August, 2017.
