    Robin La Salle

  • The mission of the Lynwood Unified School District is to prepare every student for success in college and career as a responsible citizen in a global society by guaranteeing equity and access to meaningful learning activities relevant to the 21st Century.

    Mission

  • Annually, every student will improve one performance band on the California State Test (CST) in English language arts and mathematics. Annually, every student will participate in setting and achieving personal educational and career goals.

    All students will understand and consistently demonstrate the core values and positive behaviors necessary to become responsible citizens.

    Objectives

  • We will provide the professional development and support necessary to ensure all staff set high expectations, use effective instruction and assessment data to improve student achievement.

    In collaboration with family and community we will identify, model, reinforce and recognize the core values that students will be expected to demonstrate as well as develop and implement a consistent discipline and attendance policy throughout our schools.

    We will improve communication among Board of Education, staff, families, and the community in order to unite our stakeholders as partners in achieving our mission and objectives.Objectives

  • We will provide equal access to meaningful learning activities in order to eliminate tracking and provide uniformity and balance within all schools and give all students access to the A-G curriculum.

    We will develop and implement a system which assists students setting and achieving personal college and career goals.

    We will enhance and expand career pathways, internship opportunities and partnerships with business and higher education. Objectives

  • Curriculum and program delivery adjustmentLynwoods students and teachers are strong, but the current program is creating inconsistencies. Curriculum and program delivery need to be adjusted to include data-driven instruction, common assessments, increased rigor, and differentiated support.Expectations for students (performance measures, outcomes, ambitions) need to be equally high for all students.Need additional professional support for teachers.Need to engage and empower parents in setting expectations.Lynwood Unified School DistrictAchieving Greatness Initiative

  • Differentiated InstructionAchieving Greatness InitiativeLUSDs instructional program must recognize students' varying background knowledge, readiness, language, preferences in learning and interests, and react responsively. The intent of differentiating instruction is to maximize each student's growth and individual success by meeting each student where he or she is and assisting in the learning process.
