The El Monte Union High School District Board of Trustees recently honored six parents who dedicate their time to volunteering for the benefit of students, teachers, staff and the school communities they serve.
El Monte Union High School District welcomed over 8,000 new and returning students to its campuses on Aug. 20 for the 2019-20 school year, with nearly 2,000 freshmen among the first to experience the District’s rollout of a new 1:1 device initiative, increased dual enrollment and innovative career pathway programs and new facility upgrades. Rosemead High School kicked off the year on Aug. 13 with its fourth annual LINK Crew Orientation Program, which provided over 400 members of the Class of 2023 the opportunity to acclimate to the Panther culture, learn campus rules and expectations, meet classmates and “link” up with upperclassmen who will serve as their mentors for the entire school year.
El Monte Union students can look forward to a host of new dual-enrollment programs and career technical education pathway offerings – from computer coding and stage production to public safety and education – when the 2019-20 school year begins Tuesday, Aug. 20.
The El Monte Union Board of Trustees adopted a 2019-20 budget that supports its Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which calls for developing wellness centers, additional after-school enrichment programs and implementing a new data analysis platform that will allow teachers to collaborate and modify instruction to ensure student success.
