Congratulations to middle school teacher, Wendi Hulbert! Ms. Hulbert was one of ten regional finalists for California League of Schools (CLS) Middle School Educator of the Year honored on November 8, 2018. The CLS Educator of the Year is an annual award given to California elementary, middle, and high school educators who exemplify educational excellence and have made significant efforts to implement elements of educational reform. Nominees may be teachers, administrators, counselors, or other certificated personnel. Ms. Hulbert did an outstanding job in presenting a three minute speech to a room full of around 250 combined teachers and administrators. She represented the Corcoran Unified School District staff and community very well!
We recognized several students at the board meeting on Tuesday, November 13, 2018. Principals and teachers at each site chose one student to be the star student. Selected students have demonstrated leadership in the classroom, made a positive impact on others, and displayed initiative and integrity at school. Check out our November 16 newsletter to see our star students. Congratulations to our CUSD Star Students!
The State CAASPP Scores are in, and the district continues to be on an upward trend. We would like to see more growth, yet there are a real effort and focus that will bring us to meeting our goals. There are some highlights worth noting including the continued significant growth by our high school juniors and our 4th grade students. In addition, you can see how we compare to high schools in our county in math. The large jump in percentages is a model of what we would like to continue to see for all students. Our goal is 10% growth a year. We have no doubt we will eventually reach our goals one day, one week, one month, and one year at a time. Keep up the good work!
