We are pleased to report that there are more students enrolled and attending Adolfo Camarillo High, Channel Islands High, Frontier High, Hueneme High, Oxnard High, Pacifica High, and Rio Mesa High for the 2011-2012 school year. Adult Education begins their fall session by providing our communities outlets for continued education, graduation of high school.
Each OUHSD Division including Human Resources, Business, and Educational Services is committed to meet students’ needs first. The Human Resources Division is working daily with each site principal to ensure our staff members are supported through staff development in the areas of academics, technology, and student intervention. Our Business Division have worked all summer long to prepare our sites on and off campus. Custodial staff members have given thorough cleanings of offices and classrooms, the transportation department has assured that our busses are in top safety condition and school grounds maintenance have been spruced up with new grass and greenery. New construction projects have been placed in ‘high gear’ to prepare for the start of our new year. The photovoltaic solar projects at Oxnard and Rio Mesa High Schools, the auto shop at Channel Islands and the culinary arts projects at Oxnard and Pacifica are illustrations of the hard work. All of these projects are completed through the diligence of this team. The goal is to direct the greatest amount of resources possible to our schools while maintaining a strong financial position that allows instructional leaders to focus on student’s first.
The state recently released California’s integrated accountability system that reports both the state Academic Performance Index (API), and the federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). We are encouraged that as a district our API improved 7 points. District wide five of the six school sites improved their API score. Channel Islands High School improved their overall API score by 22 points and Rio Mesa High School improved 14 points. Both Channel Islands and Rio Mesa High School met all components of AYP and have now frozen their Program Improvement status. OUHSD is committed to being a part of greatness and making amazing strides during the 2011-2012 school year.
So for week one, OUHSD celebrates serving more students on our campuses, supporting our dedicated staff, committing to greatness, and building relations.
