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.
