Coronado Unified School District

Every Child, Every Day

Per the California Department of Education, Equity is "Fair outcomes, treatment, and opportunities for all students." This is the definition implemented by the Staff within Coronado Unified School District.
In CUSD we acknowledge and are guided by the California Department of Education which states “students arrive at our schools with diverse backgrounds, abilities, talents, and challenges. We ensure equity by recognizing, respecting, and acting on this diversity. A common misperception is that equity means that all students are treated equally in all situations. In fact, high-quality schools have the capacity to differentiate instruction, services, and resource distribution to respond effectively to the diverse needs of their students, with the aim of ensuring that all students benefit equally.”
The Coronado Unified School District and its Governing Board believe that supporting the diversity that exists among the district's community of students, staff, parents/guardians, and community members is integral to the district's vision, mission, and goals. Addressing the needs of every child, every day requires recognition of the inherent value of diversity, equity, and inclusion and an acknowledgment that achieving educational excellence requires a commitment to equity in the opportunities provided to students and the resulting outcomes. (BP 0415)
We believe that in order for every child to be successful, CUSD must create conditions where all members of our school community feel safe, valued, and respected while in our care.
Like all California public schools, the Coronado Unified School District follows the relevant governing authorities' accountability systems and initiatives. CUSD is measured via the California School Dashboard. Academic achievement and positive school climate for all students are the focus of our district and our state.

California Department of Education - School Accountability Report Card
School Accountability Report Card (SARC) The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.
California School Dashboard
CA School Dashboard The Dashboard is a key part of California’s commitment to transparency and continuous improvement. California’s future success depends on tapping into the potential of all students, so they graduate ready for college, careers and life. For schools to reach this goal, teachers, parents and the community need clear and useful measures of progress. As an accountability tool, the Dashboard will help the state identify schools (including charter schools) and districts needing targeted assistance.

California Healthy Kids Survey
The CalSCHLS system was created by the California Department of Education (CDE) in 1997 to efficiently and cost-effectively provide school districts and their partner communities with quality local data which can be used to improve student academic performance and social-emotional, behavioral, and physical health of all youth. It assesses key indicators linked to success in school, career, and life. The majority of districts in California now use CalSCHLS data as Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) indicators.
