Superintendent's Message
 
Dear Paramount Unified School District Families and Friends,
 
On June 13, nearly 1,000 young men and women received their high school diplomas during a commencement ceremony and moved confidently into the next phase of their lives. As we celebrate our graduates, let’s also celebrate the role that each of us has played in paving the way for their success. From our dedicated parents, staff and educators, we have all collaborated to create brighter futures for our children.
 
We have finished another strong year with intensive programs that inspire students and their families. In April, we distributed College Readiness Guides (CRG) to help families support their child’s pursuit of college. The guide included information on graduation requirements as well as the admissions process. It’s yet another way that we are staying connected to the community in support of students.
 
On that note, we are encouraging parents to enroll in ParentVUE and Schoology, online Parent Portals that allow parents to remain in tune with their child’s education. The portals allow them to monitor critical school information and have a direct line of communication with teachers. Let’s continue to be engaged in the classroom progress of students.
 
I also want to give special thanks to one of our valuable partners, Vision To Learn, a nonprofit dedicated to eliminating vision issues as a barrier to education. Alondra Middle School students received free eyeglasses from VTL on May 28. Seeing smiles on the faces of children who tried on their new glasses was so rewarding, and motivation to continue pursuing new tools to help students reach success.
 
Congratulations on another exceptional year! You have once again helped to inspire the future leaders of this community.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Ruth Pérez

 
Mensaje de la Superintendente:
 
Estimadas Familias y Amigos del Distrito Escolar Unificado Paramount,
 
El 13 de junio, cerca de 1,000 hombres y mujeres jóvenes recibieron sus diplomas de la preparatoria durante una ceremonia de graduación y pasaron confiados a la siguiente fase de sus vidas. Mientras celebramos a nuestros graduados, celebremos también el papel que cada uno de nosotros ha desempeñado para abrir el camino para su éxito. De nuestros dedicados padres, personal y educadores, todos hemos colaborado para crear futuros más brillantes para nuestros hijos.
 
Hemos terminado otro año fuerte con programas intensivos que inspiran a los estudiantes y sus familias. En abril, distribuimos Guías de Preparación para la Universidad (CRG) para ayudar a las familias a apoyar la búsqueda de la universidad de sus hijos. La guía incluía información sobre los requisitos de graduación, así como el proceso de admisión. Es aún otra forma en la que nos mantenemos conectados con la comunidad en apoyo a los estudiantes.
 
A ese respecto, alentamos a los padres a inscribirse en ParentVUE y Schoology, que son portales para padres en línea que les permiten a los padres permanecer en sintonía con la educación de sus hijos. Los portales les permiten monitorear información crítica de la escuela y tener una línea directa de comunicación con los maestros. Continuemos participando en el progreso del salón de clases de los estudiantes.
 
También quiero agradecer de forma especial a uno de nuestros valiosos socios, Vision To Learn, una organización sin fines de lucro dedicada a eliminar los problemas de la vista como una barrera para la educación. Los estudiantes de la Escuela Secundaria Alondra recibieron anteojos gratuitos de VTL el 28 de mayo. Ver sonrisas en las caras de los niños que se probaron sus nuevos anteojos fue tan gratificante, y la motivación para continuar buscando nuevas herramientas para ayudar a los estudiantes a alcanzar el éxito. ¡Felicidades por otro año excepcional! Una vez más, has ayudado a inspirar a los futuros líderes de esta comunidad.
 
 
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

Draft Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and Budget Overview 2019-2020
 
All districts must write a Local Control and Accountability Plan that describes how Local Control Funding Formula funds will be used to meet the needs of students. Each year an LCAP Committee and two parent committees review the purpose of the plan, analyze data and discuss the services needed to address future needs. The LCAP Committee includes teachers, administrators, classified staff, parents, representatives from TAP and CSEA and Board of Education members. LCAP Parent Committees include representatives from each school and parents of English Learners. School staffs, parents, students in grades 5, 7 and 12 and Odyssey High School completed surveys on the impact of these services. Survey results, as well as other data and district needs were used to develop the updated plan.
 
Please review the draft LCAP and Budget Overview for Parents and complete the feedback form emailing it to agalvan@paramount.k12.ca.us or by bringing it to K-8 Educational Services at 15110 California Avenue, Paramount, by May 28, 2019.
 
 
Plan de Control y Responsabilidad Local (LCAP) y 
Visión General para Padres Sobre el Presupuesto, 2019-2020
 
Como resultado de cómo se financian las escuelas en California, todos los distritos deben escribir un plan de control y responsabilidad local. El propósito de este plan es delinear cómo el distrito usará los fondos de fórmula de financiamiento de control local (LCFF) para satisfacer las necesidades de los estudiantes. Cada año, el Comité de LCAP y un Comité de padres revisan el propósito del plan, analizan el progreso y discuten cómo abordar las necesidades futuras. Los comités de padres de LCAP incluyen representantes de cada escuela y padres de estudiantes de inglés. El personal escolar, los padres, los estudiantes en los grados 5, 7 y 12 y la escuela secundaria Odyssey son dados encuestas sobre el impacto de estos servicios. Los resultados de la encuesta, así como otros datos y necesidades del distrito se utilizaron para desarrollar el plan actualizado.
 
Por favor revise el borrador de LCAP y Visión General para Padres Sobre el Presupuesto y complete el formulario de comentarios enviando un correo electrónico a agalvan@paramount.k12.ca.us o llevándole a K-8 Servicios Educacionales en 15110 California Avenue, Paramount antes del 28 de mayo del 2019.
