Superintendent’s Message:

May 3, 2018
 
Dear Paramount Unified School District Families and Friends,
 
Recently, we held ceremonies to celebrate Hollydale K-8 School and Paramount Park Middle School for being among 22 schools in the state to earn spots on the 2018 School To Watch List. The events were attended by U.S. Rep. Nanette Diaz-Barragán, California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and South Gate Mayor Maria Davila. As we raised banners to commemorate the achievement, I was reminded that it is the collective spirit of the entire Paramount community that is lifting us to new heights. We should all be proud of what we have accomplished together. In other exciting news, five of our Paramount High School Seniors recently worked as videographers and photographers at the Toshiba Classic PGA Tour event. The opportunity was provided through the school’s Career Technical Education (CTE) Media Pathway program and gave our students the chance to live out their professional dreams. On March 2, our District celebrated Read Across America Week, which recognizes the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Parents, District staff members and service men and women took turns reading classic tales and encouraging students to continually explore new books during a community building event. I am pleased that the hard work at our schools is being recognized, and that we are continuing to celebrate foundational skills such as literacy while also finding ways for students to engage in extraordinary training. As we move further into spring, let us sharpen our focus on inspiring our students to finish off a strong school year.
 
Sincerely, Dr. Ruth Pérez

 
Mensaje de la Superintendente:
 
Estimadas Familias y Amigos del Distrito Escolar Unificado de Paramount,
 
Recientemente, se llevaron a cabo las ceremonias para celebrar a las escuelas de Hollydale K-8 y la Secundaria Paramount Park por estar entre las 22 escuelas en el estado en ganar espacios en la lista de Schools To Watch de 2018. En estos eventos contamos con la presencia de la Representante de los Estados Unidos Nanette Diaz-Barragan, el Orador de la Asamblea de California Anthony Rendon y la Alcaldesa de la ciudad de South Gate Maria Dávila. Conforme alzamos las pancartas para conmemorar el logro, recordé que es el espíritu colectivo de toda la comunidad de Paramount lo que nos ha elevado a nuevas alturas. Todos debemos estar orgullosos de lo que juntos hemos logrado. En otras noticias emocionantes, cinco de nuestros estudiantes del 12o grado de nuestra preparatoria de Paramount recientemente trabajaron como camarógrafos y fotógrafos en el evento de Toshiba Classic PGA Tour. Esta oportunidad fue facilitada por el programa de Educación en Carreras Técnicas (CTE) Vía de Medios de Comunicación que les dio a nuestros estudiantes la oportunidad de vivir sus sueños profesionales. El 2 de marzo, nuestro Distrito celebró La Semana de Leer en Toda América, la cual reconoce el cumpleaños del Dr. Seuss. Los padres, miembros del personal del Distrito y hombres y mujeres del servicio tomaron turnos para leer cuentos clásicos y animar a los estudiantes en explorar continuamente nuevos libros durante un evento de edificación de la comunidad. Me alegra que el arduo trabajo de nuestras escuelas sea reconocido, y que seguimos celebrando las destrezas fundamentales como la alfabetización mientras que encontramos maneras para que los estudiantes tomen parte en una formación extraordinaria. A medida que avanzamos en la primavera, afinemos nuestra concentración en inspirar a nuestros estudiantes en terminar un gran año escolar.
 
Atentamente, 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.

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.
