Superintendent’s Message:

February, 2018
Dear Paramount Unified School District Families and Friends,
As we move into the New Year let us take a moment to reflect on all the wonderful gifts we enjoy at Paramount Unified. From our bright and ambitious students to our dedicated and attentive staff, our District has created an achievement culture.
I am proud to announce that Paramount Unified School District was named to the 2018 Advanced Placement Honor Roll. It’s a credit to our community’s commitment to our children that we were recognized in this way
Collins Elementary School deserves special congratulations for receiving a 2017 Golden Bell Award from the California School Boards Association (CSBA) for lowering suspension rates and improving attendance. The Golden Bell has become a staple of our District that reflects our effective approach to instruction and engagement.
We recently enjoyed our inaugural Young Women’s Empowerment Conference, an event that connected our female students with successful professionals such as Los Angeles Superior Court judges Connie R. Quiñones and Andrea Davalos. It was a special day that allowed us to continue investing in the success of our young women.
Speaking of young female achievers, Paramount High School senior student-athletes Brooke Moeai and Sekai Wright signed with Division I colleges and were celebrated by Paramount High. Moeai, a softball player, will attend Weber State while gymnast Wright is heading to UCLA. Each of them serves as inspiration to all of our students.
I am thankful for all that we have achieved thus far and inspired by the wonderful days ahead of us this school year.
Dr. Ruth Pérez
Estimadas Familias y Amigos del Distrito Escolar Unificado de Paramount,
A medida que avanzamos en este Nuevo Año, tomemos un momento para reflexionar sobre todos los maravillosos dones que podemos disfrutar en el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Paramount. Desde nuestros estudiantes brillantes y ambiciosos a nuestro personal dedicado y atento, nuestro Distrito ha creado una cultura de logros.
Me enorgullece anunciar que el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Paramount fue nombrado al Cuadro de honor de Colocación Avanzada del 2018. Es un crédito a la responsabilidad de nuestra comunidad ante nuestros estudiantes que fuimos reconocidos de esta manera.
La escuela primaria de Collins merece felicitaciones especiales por haber recibir el Premio de la Campana de Oro de La Asociación del Consejo Escolar de California (CSBA) por la disminución en sus tasas de suspensión y mejorar la asistencia. La Campana Dorada se ha convertido en un elemento básico de nuestro distrito que refleja nuestro enfoque eficaz para la instrucción y el compromiso.
Recientemente disfrutamos de nuestra Conferencia inaugural de Empoderamiento de Mujeres Jóvenes, un acontecimiento que unió a nuestras estudiantes femeninas con profesionales exitosas tales como La Jueza de La Corte Superior de Los Ángeles Connie R. Quiñones y Andrea Davalos. Fue un día especial que nos permitió seguir invirtiendo en el éxito de nuestras mujeres jóvenes.
Hablando de mujeres jóvenes triunfadores, las atletas del grado doce de la Preparatoria de Paramount Brooke Moeai y Sekai Wright firmaron con la División I de colegios y fueron celebradas por la Preparatoria Paramount. Moeai, una jugadora de softbol, asistirá a Weber State mientras que la gimnasta se dirige a UCLA. Cada una de ellas sirve de inspiración para todos nuestros estudiantes.
Estoy agradecida por todo lo que hemos conseguido hasta ahora y estoy inspirada por los días que nos esperan este año escolar
Dra. 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.
