Public Meeting Announcement

Paradise Unified School District, along with all school districts throughout the state, is receiving funding from the State of California through an entirely new process called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  As a result of the this new funding model, PUSD receives additional funds ($1.6 Million in 2014-15 with additional funds in future years) for students who qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program, English Learner Program participants, and students in Foster Care.  The use of these funds requires that a plan be submitted each year along with the PUSD original budget in June.  This plan is called the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and must be reviewed by District stakeholders: teachers, classified staff, parents, community members, employee organizations, foster care guardians, English Learner guardians, students, and administrators.  In PUSD, all of this input will be assembled in a draft LCAP document to be reviewed by a representative LCAP Committee.  This committee will hold three meetings to review this plan and submit a recommended version to the PUSD Board of Trustees for review, public hearing, and approval before July 1st.

The Paradise Unified School District will host two separate public LCAP meetings for the Paradise area and also the Magalia area.

    LCAP Public Meetings:

    May 1, 2014 at Pine Ridge School library, 13878 Compton Road, Magalia, at 6:30 p.m.

    May 6, 2014 at Paradise High School library, 5911 Maxwell Drive, Paradise at 6:30 p.m.

A Message from the Superintendent

Welcome to the Paradise Unified School District website.  PUSD proudly serves the Towns of Paradise, Magalia, and Stirling City.  We are located in the most beautiful area in California and offer a wide range of educational opportunities for students.  PUSD supports preschool through adult education programs and twelve schools including traditional campuses, charter schools, and home study opportunities.  Our programs include Advanced Placement classes, career path programs, academic support, smaller learning communities, and child centered classrooms.

From energetic teachers just beginning their careers in this sought-after district, to award winning veterans of the classroom, our schools are all staffed with highly qualified, dedicated, and caring teachers who work together to create the best possible learning environment for your child. Using California's rigorous curriculum content standards and data-based research as their guide, our outstanding teachers are committed to making sure that every child confidently masters California's clearly defined and challenging standards in math, science, and the language arts.

Paradise Unified is proud of our reputation for warm and friendly schools where teachers are really able to get to know each student personally.  In addition, our schools are also well equipped with a wide array of resources to ensure that every child can succeed to his or her fullest potential, including early intervention programs; academic, social and emotional counseling; and curriculum in music, art, physical fitness, and nutrition. Included throughout our rich curriculum is a foundation of character education.  And it shows! Paradise schools have received both California Distinguished School and Title I Academic Achievement recognition in recent years.

It's not only our teachers and administrators who care. In our close-knit educational family, hundreds of involved parents partner directly with our district professionals during the school year.  By volunteering in the classroom or becoming part of an active network of official parent/faculty associations that enhance the curriculum and sponsor other school activities, these parents represent our community's deep commitment to making our schools as safe, productive, happy, and healthy as possible.

Trust your family to our family and become a part of our educational community of excellence.  At Paradise Unified, we believe that a public school education is not simply your basic right.  It's the right choice for your child.
