Principal Cordoba

Paula Cordoba started as principal at San Pascual in the summer of 2014.  Since then, several significant developments have occurred under her leadership.  First and foremost, we are now San Pascual STEAM Magnet!  She has been a force to be reckoned with in moving SPSM into the 21st century with the implementation of the One-to-One Technology Initiative (iPads for K-6th grade students).   Our school’s library has been transformed into a Research Lab, adjacent to our brand new Design Lab where students can design, prototype and create their ideas.  The staff and community appreciate Mrs. Cordoba’s efforts in the revitalization of our school.

Parent Involvement Policy (PIP)

In conjunction with Public Law 107-110, (the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001) our parent involvement policy describes our programs, activities and procedures planned to carry out the requirements specified by the law as well as alignment with the California Department of Education Family Engagement Framework (2011) the LAUSD Parent as Equal Partners in the Education of their Children Resolution (2010) and Task Force Recommendations (2011).

 

Parent Participation

San Pascual encourages parents to get involved in the education of their children by joining and participating in our SSC and ELAC advisory committees. Numerous volunteer opportunities are available in the library, classrooms and playground. Our PTA offers parents a venue to help raise funds to augment the regular program. Each August, an annual meeting is held for all parents to inform them about Title I and other Specially Funded programs and how they can be involved in the planning, review and evaluation of the Title I School-Wide Program and other programs. A separate meeting is held to obtain parent participation in the development of the Title I Parent Involvement Policy as well as the School Parent Compact. Monthly newsletters give parents timely information about the Academic Performance Index, expected proficiency levels for the Common Core State Standards, district assessments and transition to the new California Measurement of Academic Performance and Progress Assessments. The school has a Community Representative intended to increase parent involvement. Parent Participation in the budgeting process is fostered by means of an annual needs assessment to gauge community priorities for funding.  Funds have been set aside for parents to attend conferences to build their capacity to support their children’s learning and achievement.

 

Communication regarding student academic achievement and standards master:

Ongoing effective communication with parents is a priority at San Pascual. Staff members communicate with parents in person, by phone and in writing on an informal basis. Parents are invited to a Kindergarten Orientation meeting and Back-to-School Night in the fall to meet their child’s teacher.  Parents are given a list of grade level Common Core State Standards at parent conferences twice a year when teachers discuss student progress towards mastery. Parents receive report cards three times per year. Spanish translation is available daily, and provided at parent conferences and council meetings. A copy of ELD standards in Spanish is maintained in the main office for parent viewing and is reviewed at monthly ELAC meetings. Information on diversified and disaggregated groups is reviewed by using the School Accountability Report Card and the Performance Meter to parent groups. For students with Individualized Education Plans, translators are requested from the district’s translation office; parents are offered copies of the IEP’s in Spanish as well. Parents of special education students also receive progress reports on their child’s progress of IEP goals at each reporting period. Parents are invited and encouraged to participate in monthly school councils, such as ELAC and School Site Council. Their attendance at ESC-East meetings enables them to learn leadership skills and disseminate information to other parents.

 

Parent Training

Parents receive training in conducting meetings through ESC-EAST training sessions. Parents represent the school at monthly ESC-EAST and disseminate information at school by reporting on information given at these conferences. Parents are informed about standards, curriculum and assessment through the monthly bulletins and attendance at Open House and Back-to-School Night. Trainings are conducted by teachers and the Principal in the areas of reading, math, writing, standards-based instruction and rigorous content.

 

Community Resources

San Pascual has a relationship with a local agency, the Hathaway Resource Center. Hathaway provides services such as counseling to help families with behavioral issues training for various topics of interest, tutoring and child care, classes in English language skills and parenting skills as well. San Pascual has the support of the community and local businesses to increase student achievement. Gift certificates are awarded to Students of the Month by local restaurants. Parents participate in Parent/School Compact by signing the Three Way Pledge developed by the District. Parents are notified of opportunities to participate in district parent meetings through notices in the bulletin. Opportunities also exit for parents of EL students and students with disabilities to participate in conferences and trainings throughout the year.       

 

Staff Training

The San Pascual staff receives awareness training on the importance of parent involvement at school. The ESC-EAST Parent and Community Engagement unit of the LAUSD has guided our staff in developing goals to improve our partnership with parents in the education of their children and to increase our capacity to enhance parent involvement experiences.  The staff is educated in the considerable research which demonstrates the value of parent contributions to the academic and behavioral success of their children.  Training is also provided to staff to show them different ways to work with parents as equal partners and decision makers.
