    The District and community are proud of the many innovative programs, awards, and accolades received. Here are several examples:

    Sierra and Willard Intermediate Schools were invited to participate in the Turnaround Arts program. Turnaround Arts is a Whitehouse Arts and Culture initiative that is sponsored by Michelle Obama. Each school is paired with a local artist to support teacher training for incorporating arts into the curriculum.

    Four SAUSD elementary Schools were recognized by the CA Department of Education with Gold Ribbon Awards. The schools included: Walker Elementary School, Greenville Fundamental Elementary School, Lincoln Elementary School, and Franklin Elementary School.

    Segerstrom High School is the only public high school in our region to be approved to offer a full component of ACT assessments and readiness tests to all students.

    Santa Ana Community College, as a part of the Adelante Partnership began to offer a tuition free first year for all SAUSD graduates who enroll fulltime. Students are also provided with a free laptop computer.

    Advanced Learning Academy, the District's dependent charter school with a focus on high tech, project-based, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum, expanded to grades 3 - 8.

    Three Santa Ana USD high school football teams won their perspective league championships and entered the CIF Southern Section playoffs. Santa Ana High School made it to the CIF finals for the first time since 1985.

    Victor de los Santos, Director of Bands at Santa Ana High School, was recognized as a nominee for the 2017 Difference Maker Award. This national recognition focuses on teachers who positively impact students and their families.

  • SAUSD achieved the highest rate of students earning the State Seal of Biliteracy upon graduation. 32% of SAUSD seniors (1017 students) received the Seal, an increase of 132 students from the previous school year.

    SAUSDs LCAP community engagement process included two sessions at each school for a total of 112 parent engagement sessions. The LCAP process also expanded outreach to students. This years process engaged over 3,000 students, with sessions being conducted at every SAUSD Intermediate and high school.

    Ten SAUSD schools received Silver Recognition by The California PBIS Coalition for implementing Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports with fidelity to the National PBIS Framework. Those schools included: Lincoln Elementary School, Franklin Elementary School, Fremont Elementary School, Heroes Elementary School, Kennedy Elementary School, Mendez Fundamental Intermediate School, Pio Pico, Elementary School, Davis Elementary School, Wilson Elementary School, and REACH Academy.
