Superintendent’s Message

Superintendent's Message
 
Dear Paramount Unified School District Families and Friends,
 
The holiday season is my favorite time of year. There is a special spirit that seems to permeate the community and bring out the very best in us all. At Paramount USD, we seem to embody this enthusiasm all year long. It is one of the many reasons I am proud to be a part of this District.
 
We recently welcomed three new members to our Board of Education – Yesenia Maria Cuarenta, Sonia De Leon and Carmen Gomez. They bring a diversity of experience, and we are excited to have them join our team. I also want to express my deep appreciation for our outgoing members: Alicia Anderson, Tony Peña and Sonya Cuellar, each of whom played such a valuable role in making Paramount Unified School District an ideal place for students to thrive.
 
In November, our female students at Paramount High School learned about healthy relationships, money management and cyber bullying during the second annual Paramount Unified Young Women’s Empowerment Conference. It was an inspirational day that included several guest speakers who encouraged our students to create their own paths to success. At Paramount Adult School, special needs students are using a newly built apartment on the school’s campus as a tool for learning the skills they need to transition to independent living.
 
We are proud to help students prepare for life outside of the classroom. Let us continue to strive for excellence as we help our students discover their full potential.
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Ruth Pérez

 
Mensaje de la Superintendente:
 
Estimadas Familias y Amigos del Distrito Escolar Unificado Paramount,
 
La temporada de vacaciones es mi época favorita del año. Hay un espíritu especial que parece impregnar la comunidad y sacar lo mejor de todos nosotros. En Paramount USD, parece que representamos este entusiasmo durante todo el año. Es una de las muchas razones por las que me siento orgullosa de ser parte de este Distrito.
 
Recientemente dimos la bienvenida a tres nuevos miembros a nuestra Mesa Directiva de Educación: Yesenia Maria Cuarenta, Sonia De Leon y Carmen Gomez. Traen una diversidad de experiencias, y estamos entusiasmados de que se unan a nuestro equipo. También quiero expresar mi profundo aprecio por nuestros miembros salientes: Alicia Anderson, Tony Peña y Sonya Cuellar, quienes desempeñaron un papel tan valioso en hacer del Distrito Escolar Unificado de Paramount un lugar ideal para que nuestros estudiantes prosperen.
 
En noviembre, nuestras alumnas de la preparatoria Paramount aprendieron sobre relaciones saludables, administración de dinero y acoso cibernético durante la segunda Conferencia anual de Empoderamiento de Mujeres Jóvenes del Distrito de Paramount. Fue un día inspirador que incluyó a varios oradores invitados que alentaron a nuestras alumnas a crear sus propios caminos hacia el éxito. En la escuela de Adultos de Paramount, los estudiantes con necesidades especiales están utilizando un apartamento recién construido en el plantel escolar como una herramienta para aprender las habilidades que se necesitan para la transición a la vida independiente.
 
Estamos orgullosos de ayudar a los estudiantes a prepararse para la vida fuera del salón de clases. Sigamos esforzándonos por alcanzar la excelencia mientras ayudamos a nuestros estudiantes a descubrir su máximo potencial.
 
Atentamente,
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.

LCAP

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.
