Superintendent's Message
 
Dear Paramount Unified School District Families and Friends,
 
Preparing students for successful futures in college and career has always been a top priority of our District. With that goal in mind, I’m proud to announce that we have partnered with Compton College to create an Administration of Justice Early College Program that will allow our students to earn their Associates Degree for Transfer in Administration of Justice while earning credits for a high school diploma at the same time. This wonderful program will begin this fall, and is only possible through the continued commitment to excellence of our staff and surrounding community.
 
Speaking of sending children to college, we enjoyed another successful March Madness fundraiser to help support our seniors as they pursue higher education. Each of our schools participated in this fun competition, and Leona Jackson Middle School emerged as the winner by raising more than $31,000. A special thank you to all the schools for participating and helping to pave the way for college success.
 
Attendance has long been a focus of this District as we build a culture of achievement by consistently inspiring our children each day. That consistency was recently recognized when we were honored as one of 10 Los Angeles County 2018 model school districts by the School Attendance Review Board (SARB) for success in lowering rates of chronic absenteeism and truancy. Paramount Unified School District will present information about the District’s best attendance practices and processes to other districts during a SARB Symposium on May 20 at the Los Angeles County Office of Education. Congratulations to the entire Paramount community as you share in this honor.
 
Let’s continue to work together to ensure we finish this year as strongly as we started it!
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Ruth Pérez

 
Mensaje de la Superintendente:
 
Estimadas Familias y Amigos del Distrito Escolar Unificado Paramount,
 
La preparación de los estudiantes para futuros exitosos en la universidad y carreras siempre han sido una prioridad para nuestro Distrito. Con ese meta en mente, estoy orgullosa de anunciar que nos hemos asociado con Compton College para crear la Admisión Temprana para la Universidad, Programa de Administración de Justicia que les permitirá a nuestros estudiantes obtener su Título de Asociado para la Transferencia en la Administración de Justicia y al mismo tiempo están obteniendo créditos para un Diploma de la Preparatoria. Este maravilloso programa comenzará este otoño, y solo es posible a través del compromiso continuo con la excelencia de nuestro personal y la comunidad circundante.
 
Hablando de enviar a los niños a la universidad, disfrutamos de otra exitosa recaudación de fondos de March Madness para ayudar a nuestros estudiantes del grado 12o en su educación superior. Cada una de nuestras escuelas participó en esta divertida competencia, y la escuela secundaria Leona Jackson resultó la ganadora al recaudar más de $31,000. Un agradecimiento especial a todas las escuelas por participar y ayudar a allanar el camino para el éxito universitario.
 
La asistencia ha sido durante mucho tiempo un enfoque de este Distrito, ya que construimos una cultura de logros inspirando constantemente a nuestros niños cada día. Esa consistencia fue reconocida recientemente cuando la Junta de Revisión de Asistencia Escolar (SARB) nos reconoció como uno de los 10 distritos escolares modelo del Condado de Los Ángeles 2018 por su éxito en la reducción de las tasas de ausentismo crónico y absentismo escolar. El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Paramount presentará información sobre las mejores prácticas y procesos de asistencia del Distrito a otros distritos durante un Simposio SARB el 20 de mayo en la Oficina de Educación del Condado de Los Ángeles. Felicitaciones a toda la comunidad de Paramount por compartir este honor.
 
¡Continuemos trabajando juntos para asegurarnos de que terminemos este año tan fuertemente como lo comenzamos!
 
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.
