Kings Canyon Unified School District
The reason public education exists is to prepare students to take their places in society, as competent, productive members. As trustees of that worthy goal, educators strive to produce excellence in every student's academic life. New emphasis from state and federal government has not changed that original goal. Instead, it has sharpened our focus on the need to make sure everything we teach, everything we spend, and everything we model, leads to improved student achievement....
Test scores were released last week for schools across California. While test scores in English and Math decline across the state, Kings Canyon Unified students are exceeding expectations with increasing scores in both.
When compared with similar districts in the state, KCUSD ranks #1 in test scores. These results are even more encouraging given the fact that many students in our district face significant socio-economic hardships and more than half either are or have been English language learners. While there is much more work to be done, these results are encouraging. Congratulations to KCUSD students on this achievement!
