Dear Paramount Unified School District Families and Friends,
At around 3 p.m. today, there was a car crash near Paramount High School Senior campus involving four of our students. As a result, the students have been taken to local hospitals where they are receiving medical care for their injuries. Our hearts are with our students, their families and friends and we will continue to keep them in our prayers for a swift recovery. The District is working with the local Sheriff’s Department to determine the details surrounding the collision. Paramount High School is making counselors available to provide any needed support to students and staff.

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.
