CulverPride abounded at CCUSD’s first State of the District…and Beyond event sponsored by The Culver City Education Foundation (CCEF)— and with good reason.
Ours is among the most diverse school districts in the nation with a nationally recognized commitment to equity and access for every single student at every one of our schools. CCUSD boasts of award winning visual and performing arts programs as well as CIF Championship Athletics. As for academics, today more than 60% of our Culver City High School Graduates take at least one Advanced Placement course during their high school years, and the level of CCHS graduates who have completed 4-year college entrance requirements has never been higher.
This kind of success is only possible when all of us— students, teachers, parents, administrators, staff and the community at large— work together to ensure success for all of our students. Together we make our goals achievable, and our goal is to have 100% of our students connected and engaged.
Despite all of this good news, Superintendent Josh Arnold made it clear that CCUSD is not resting on its laurels. Thanks to the Bond Measure (which can only be used for infrastructure, not for programs, materials, equipment or supplies), CCUSD will be installing air conditioning districtwide and renovating the Robert Frost Auditorium so that it becomes a premiere venue on the Westside. The District will also be building new science labs for our middle and high schools plus creating Makerspaces where students will engage in building, exploring and discovering at a whole new level. A two-school Makerspace pilot program will be launched next fall (2017).
The bottom line— the Culver City Unified School District has 6,800 students, 800 teachers and staff, 11 incredible schools and unlimited possibilities!
