U.S. News & World Report has published the 2016 Best High Schools rankings, a detailed analysis of more than 21,500 U.S. public high schools. Schools were awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals based on their performance on state assessments, their graduation rates, and how well they prepare students for college.
We are proud to announce that Esparto High School was awarded a Silver Medal. Thank you to the hard working teachers, staff, students and parents that made this possible!
In partnership with Woodland Community College and Los Rios Community Colleges, Esparto High School launched the Get Focused Stay Focused curriculum for our 9th grade students in the fall of 2015. Please see the video below to learn about this exciting class and how it is helping our students refine their college and career goals.
A recent lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) is impacting all school districts across the state. In April 2012, two organizations, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, filed a lawsuit against the CDE alleging widespread, systemic non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws. The suit also alleges the CDE fails to monitor, investigate and correct such non-compliance in accordance with the law. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.
The Esparto Unified School District was not involved in the lawsuit and is not the subject of any of the suit’s allegations. Nonetheless, as a part of this lawsuit, CDE has been ordered by the court to release all data it has collected on general and special education students since Jan. 1, 2008.
For more information regarding the release of this data and how you can file an objection with the court to consider not releasing your data, visit: http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase. You may also contact the California Department of Education at 916-319-0800.
