Dear ESC North Stakeholders:

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! We anticipate great things ahead, as we begin full implementation of the Common Core Standards. Our District leadership, instructional staff, and teachers have been preparing over the past two years for the instructional shifts and new demands of the Common Core, and students have had opportunity to integrate new habits of mind into their learning that will prepare them for the demands of 21st Century college and career skills. We look forward to the exciting challenges of the coming year and expect outstanding results from our ESC North schools.

It is important that we each consider our roles and responsibilities, as it takes a commitment from each one of us to accomplish greatness. What is your goal?

Students need to carefully consider the personal habits and disciplines that will carry them through the year. Plan for success by:
  • Bringing homework assignments home and returning them to your classes on time.
  • Managing time at home by organizing your schedule for homework, chores, and play.
  • Asking for help when you need it and before you get behind.
  • Getting plenty of sleep, balanced nutrition, and exercise.

Parents play a crucial role in each child’s school journey. Suggestions for a strong start and continued success are:

  • Establishing a regular routine for the school day that includes breakfast and on-time arrival at school, as well as scheduled homework time in the afternoon or evening.
  • Creating a positive homework environment, free from distractions.
  • Guiding and monitoring students as they do their homework, but allowing them to process, create, and produce independently.
  • Cultivating a relationship with the teacher(s) so that you can support the instructional goals and objectives for the year.

Our District goals include on-going support and training for teachers and administrators in the Common Core, the new English Learner Master Plan, and all current initiatives. With this comes greater financial support for resources and personnel. LAUSD believes in the investments necessary to support the youth of LAUSD, which includes aligning with the new Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and the funding provided by the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which will focus on:

Foster youth
English Learners
School climate and student engagement
Students with disabilities
Providing more budget autonomy to schools

For on-going updates and more information on all District news, please visit the LAUSD website at www.lausd.net

Please note these important dates in August and September:

  • First Day of Instruction – August 12th
  • Holidays – Admissions Day – August 29th
  • Labor Day – September 1
  • LAUSD Holiday – September 25th

Finally, we extend a very special welcome to our new kindergarteners…the class of 2027! We promise to give you our very best throughout your school experience, and look forward to the success stories that will come from your achievements.

Here’s to an amazing year for all!
