    Superintendent's Message

    Maintaining the Focus
    Students
    Our first strategic plan was developed a little over seven years ago. Since that time we met many of the goals we outlined in our original document and have updated the plan to continue our purposeful service to the students, staff and community. I think it is important to maintain this focus and to revisit the document in this arena annually. You will see this plan posted throughout all of our schools, facilities and our website. I appreciate this opportunity to share it with you once again.

    Making College Accessible

    In the Hawthorne School District, we are committed to ensuring that our students are equipped with the tools, skills, and knowledge necessary for success in both college and career.  To this end, we joined with California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) last year to submit a Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) partnership grant proposal to the U.S. Department of Education. We were recently delighted to learn that our GEAR UP partnership was one of only twenty-four in the country to be funded this year. The approval of this partnership means that our current sixth grade students will be provided with access to seven years of targeted academic support, college-focused counseling, college campus visitations, and family workshops focused on topics such as the college admissions process and financial aid options.  This type of long-term commitment is rarely seen with federal grants, and its impact on our students will be significant.  Projects associated with the GEAR UP grant are already underway, with the creation of College and Career Centers at each of our middle school campuses, the recruitment of CSUDH students to serve as tutors in a number of our classrooms, and the coordination of a trip for almost 800 sixth graders to the CSUDH campus this June.  We are so pleased to be able to offer these and many more services to our students as we work to support them on their path to postsecondary education.
