Recently, our efforts were recognized with several California Gold Ribbon School, Title I High Achieving School, California Business for Educational Excellence Honor Roll School awards.
This new school year provides us grand opportunities to further support academic achievement and the success of our students. In 2017-18, our schools’ students and staff will excel with California’s Common Core Standards and enhanced programs and services including: smaller class sizes, the Footsteps2Brilliance community-wide early literacy initiative; full school library services; high-speed broadband network and computer labs; increased student counseling services; and an expanded staff development program.
Further, with the gracious support of our community through the 2014 approval of Measure ‘B’, we are able to support the Future Ready Schools Framework* and provide each BPSD student an iPad, wireless technology at all schools, engaging digital content and newly modernized classrooms at five of our seven schools, including Buena Park Junior High School.
