EWCSD has been ranked #3 in the state on the 2022 California Reading Coalition Report Card study. This report analyzes the English Language Arts (ELA) performance of specifically identified Latino students in 3rd grade. The report ranks Districts according to how many students in this designation met or exceeded standard on the 2022 California standardized ELA assessment. Based on this criteria, 285 of the state’s over 1,000 districts qualified for the California Reading Report Card.
“This award is yet another accolade which affirms the amazing District EWCSD is for all students. Our students, hard-working staff, and supportive parents and community create wonderful environments for our students to thrive,” said Superintendent Dr. Marc Patterson.
The District prioritizes the implementation of Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) to ensure equitable, timely academic support for every student. Every site is supported by an ELA and Math Intervention Specialist to provide additional, targeted instruction for students in addition to increased afterschool interventions and expanded learning opportunities.
“This success can be attributed to the focused work of our teachers, staff, and administrators to provide our students with excellent, rigorous instructional programs,” said Assistant Superintendent of Educational Support Services Dr. Alicia Aceves. “We are extremely proud of our students and look forward to celebrating their continued achievements and success.”
This remarkable data is a reflection of EWCSD’s intentional efforts to predict and prevent learning gaps as a result of school closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The District is proud of the collective efforts of the entire EWCSD staff in this achievement and will continue to strive for excellence and open the door to every child’s future.
“Improving the reading proficiency of all our students is at the forefront of our District’s mission,” EWCSD Board of Education President Armando Urteaga said. “On behalf of the EWCSD Board of Education, we applaud the success of our students and hardworking staff. This is an extreme honor for us all.”
