Following the extensive modernization of campus classrooms and facilities, the Whittier Union High School District is focusing its efforts on completing the final items on its bond list. The District has issued the final $18.9 million in Measure W bonds and has successfully refinanced a portion of the $98 million in bonds issued through 1998’s Measure C, saving taxpayers $12.2 million.
About 130 La Serna High School students on Oct. 22 participated in the school’s annual TRUE (Tolerance, Respect, Unity, Equality) conference, a program that exposes students to a variety of teen-appropriate topics, including the consequences of using social media, and aims to encourage the teens to make a positive impact on campus.
La Serna High was one of only a handful of schools across the country chosen to participate in the virtual journey as part of a special one-day preview of Google Expeditions, a new education app that brings the world to a student’s fingertips and allows teachers to zero in on specific topics of instruction the whole classroom can view simultaneously.
Renovation and improvement projects – including the construction of a new 7,000-seat stadium at California High School – are in full swing this summer at the Whittier Union High School District. Workers are busy upgrading facilities across the District to increase school safety and provide 21st century learning environments for students, who will head back to school Aug. 12.
In anticipation of another rigorous year at the Whittier Union High School District, instructors spent their summer months attending professional development workshops at the Sierra Education Center, breaking into teams and setting an ambitious agenda designed to continually enhance teacher development and student achievement. This work will help prepare students for the Smarter Balanced tests, which assess students’ understanding of content under the rigorous California Standards. All 11th-grade students will complete the exams in the spring.
Whittier Union High School District plans to invest $15 million to expand summer school courses, broaden student mental health services, strengthen technology support and implement a unique Academic English course that will directly support English learner students as part of its 2015-18 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The plan, a requirement of the state’s school funding system, guides District efforts to improve student learning.
