On October 15, 2014 Jurupa Unified received three Model of Excellence Awards. The Model of Excellence Awards are given to cutting-edge district and site-based programs and practices proven successful in improving student academic achievement by combining rigor with excellence, creating a pathway to college and careers. Jurupa Unified was one of only twelve districts to receive such an award. Jurupa Unified was one of only five districts to receive three awards. No other district received more than three.
Below is a brief description of each program that was selected as a Model of Excellence.
Collaborative Journey to Common Core
Sonia Porter, Director, Elementary Education
Jay Trujillo, Director, Secondary Education
In 2010, Jurupa USD began planning for implementation of Common Core State Standards and developed a set of guiding principles: Vision, Collaboration, and Accountability. In order to establish a collaborative culture, structures were created or expanded including the Education Services Committee, Secondary Math Program Committee, and CCSS Steering Committee. In the fall of 2012, the Steering Committee participated in a two-day planning retreat where teachers created an implementation plan using key elements including unwrapped priority and supporting standards, unit pacing calendar, guiding ideas for individual units, essential questions, formative assessment/re-teaching opportunities, and suggested strategies/resources that guided the plan.
At-Risk Ninth Grade Transition - AAA Academy
Michelle Markham, Principal, Nueva Vista High School
Roberta Pace, Principal, Patriot High School
AAA students are Jurupa's most at-risk incoming ninth graders. All had three or more Fs in eighth grade and a cumulative GPA below 2.0 from grades three through eight. AAA implementation elements include acceleration for credit attainment, weekly teacher collaboration, academic support class built into the regular day, advisory period for individual student case management, career exploration and effective technology integration, strategic parent outreach (e.g., regular progress reports, home visits, etc.), four-period day with extended time for class periods (e.g., 80 minutes), ongoing home high school involvement and relationship building, and Link Crew peer mentoring and support services.
Elementary Health and Fitness Program/100 Mile Club
Jamey Bettencourt, Teacher, 100 Mile Club Head Coach
Jose Campos, Director, Parent Involvement and Community Outreach
Research indicates that healthy and fit students are more successful learners. In an effort to seek out ways to improve students' health and fitness, Jurupa USD identified the 100 Mile Club as a program that could be used to improve student fitness. The goal of the 100 Mile Club is to get kids to be active outside. Many parents choose to run/walk with their students, citing the potential benefits in their own lives, and the value in modeling healthy choices for their children.
