This historic agreement provides students with a pathway from PUSD through Compton College and potentially to UC Irvine with financial and academic support along the way. This agreement will serve our students for years to come, and represents what is possible when our partners come together to support our students.
College and Career Ready Graduates is a Focus Area of our district’s Strategic Plan, and one of the key actions called for in the plan is to “Establish agreements with local colleges that include course articulation, guaranteed admission, and preferred registration.” This is evidence that the Strategic Plan is being acted upon.
Thanks to our Governing Board for their support, Superintendent Dr. Pérez for her vision and leadership, and our high school principals and the Secondary Educational Services team for their dedication to this work. Thanks also to Compton College President and CEO Keith Curry and his leadership team for their endless commitment to our students and community, and to Santa Ruiz from UC Irvine for being such a great partner in this venture.
