CASTROVILLE — A 2-8 record left a sour taste in the North Monterey County High Condors’ mouths. A strong summer of work has them confident they can wash away that taste.

Castroville >> Sergio Chavarria has seen the blueprints. He has visualized what it will look like when completed, dreamed of what it will feel like to play at home again in front of Condor Nation.
CASTROVILLE >> Thanks to a $1,000 donation from inmates housed in a Soledad prison, 60 children received backpacks Friday to start pre-kindergarten classes at the North Monterey County Unified School District.
Over the summer NMCUSD students worked closely with professional film makers on a special project to expose them to the exciting procedure of creating commercials. These students went through the production process from start to finish which included brainstorming ideas, working in teams, and producing several 30 minute videos. This program helped the students develop leadership skills and also helped stimulate creativity while reinforcing literacy. All students participated in writing, producing, acting and editing their own commercials.

Dear Community Members,
North Monterey County Unified has been making efforts to improve school climate by decreasing discipline, increasing attendance, and improving how students, parents, teachers and staff feel about their school culture. The District is focused on preparing and supporting teachers and administrators in a shift in how instruction is delivered in classrooms to meet the new curriculum standards. By focusing on student engagement strategies to include the integration of technology, the arts integration six learning principles, and the 4Cs (collaborating, communicating, critical thinking, and creativity) our students will be prepared for post high school education and their future careers.
New mathematical practice standards, literacy across curriculum, the new integrated science model, in addition to the integration of the arts into the curriculum has revitalized our schools and students are highly engaged in their own learning. Preparing students to be college and career ready upon graduation with a plan for one-year post-high school is the goal of NMCUSD. There is a focus to ensure students complete A-G courses with at least a 2.5 GPA and/or complete a Career Technical Education pathway to ensure they have a plan and not just graduate.
NMCUSD provides an infographic overview highlighting our focus areas and progress on the LCAP, coming soon.
The new CA Accountability System, the Dashboard, provides the District and schools with indicators based upon multiple-measures to assist in determining progress and areas to focus improvements.
