By Dr. Erika Torres, County Administrator
This week Aug. 22 Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) schools celebrated the first day of the 2022-2023 academic year. IUSD will welcome back 7,600 returning students and families, and those newly joining the Inglewood Unified family.
The district will relaunch their “Every Student. Every Day.” Attendance Campaign to encourage student attendance and engagement at every school site. “It’s important that our students attend school every day to maximize their instructional time in the classroom and promote academic success for the future”, said County Administrator Dr. Erika F. Torres.
All students in the first week of school with perfect attendance will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a karaoke machine at each school site. Throughout the year, IUSD will promote the importance of attendance through various attendance initiatives, activities, and recognitions.
Parent engagement is an important element in the success of students. IUSD is excited to kick start the school year by having Community Liaisons across all 18 schools where they will be opening comprehensive Parent Centers. In addition, the district continues to elevate their specialized programs across their Career Technical Education (CTE) pathways, literacy, and competitive athletic programs.
“Our goal is to ensure we provide safe, high quality educational experiences and opportunities for our students and generations to come. Together with our community, we are reimagining Inglewood Unified School District to be known as the destination district for students, families and employees”, said County Administrator Dr. Erika F. Torres.
IUSD has an unwavering commitment and partnership to the community it serves. IUSD continues to diversify the workforce by creating pipelines and partnerships with post-secondary educational institutions to recruit and hire highly qualified diverse teachers, providing quality professional development opportunities, and prioritizing employees’ well-being.
Inglewood Unified serves approximately 7,600 students in 18 schools in the city of Inglewood and an adjacent section of unincorporated Los Angeles County of Ladera Heights.
