Welcome to Corcoran Unified School District. Our Board, community and district have a common goal of becoming a “Destination District.” This vision is becoming a reality with our continued growth in student academic achievement and a positive, professional environment that encourages innovation and personal growth. We are very proud of our superb, hard-working staff members who are creating a culture of excellence for our students.
Our passion and mission is to develop confident, successful academic achievers among our whole student population. There is no limitation or hindrance that can overcome the positive influences of highly effective teachers and schools. We are seeing more and more students grow and achieve academically despite the former conventional expectations of mediocrity and low achievement for low income and underprivileged students. All students can achieve!
We are also excited about the District’s commitment toward student education using 21st Century learning tools via the One to One Technology Learning Program with student access to these 21st Century learning tools available now in every classroom in the District. The District is committed to a focus on academic achievement with a priority to develop staff members in using innovative, effective strategies in the use of these powerful learning tools. The results in improved academic achievement are encouraging along with the enthusiasm and excitement from students and staff.
The District has been recognized as among just over one hundred school districts in the nation a having an Apple Distinguished Technology Program!
We are in the fourth year of utilizing our Technology Learning Center Facility. This high-tech facility is designed for staff development, job training for the community and teaching and learning in a variety of high school, career tech college preparatory and college courses. Considered one of its kind in the Central Valley, the Center is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to assist staff and students in learning and employing 21st Century learning skills.
The enthusiasm and excitement of our continued growth in the many dimensions of our District is just starting to catch up with the high expectations we have for every student at Corcoran Unified.
