Public LCAP Meeting

Calling all parents, students, staff and community members: to serve our students in the most beneficial and effective way possible, PUSD needs your help!
In order to help us achieve our goal of creating college- and career-ready students, the state of California uses a formula, the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) to determine the amount of money PUSD will be given toward helping us meet the needs and improve the performance of our students.
We must develop a plan, called our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) to determine how to use this money most effectively. This is where you come in: to create this plan, we need your assistance. Please participate in any of our six public meetings to give us your input so that, as a community, we will serve our students in the most effective way possible.

Principals' Message

The staff, students, and parents at PHS are proud to be part of a school strongly supporting the academic and athletic excellence, physical and emotional health, and personal growth of all students. We hold fast to RISE UP, which promotes and necessitates an atmosphere of Respectful, Informed, Safe, Excellent, United, and Purposeful behavior for both students and staff. 

At PHS, we are committed to preparing students for the challenges of the 21st century. Our staff works together weekly in Professional Learning Communities to collaborate and promote student achievement by focusing on student learning and success. We have very high expectations for all of our students. While focus on the core academics is top priority, building a well-rounded citizen ready for the challenges of life beyond high school is critical to student success. Students must have the critical-thinking, teamwork, and technological skills to be competitive in our ever-evolving global economy. We must continue to work to prepare students for the rigors of college and the work force. 

On behalf of the entire staff at Paradise High School, we wish each of you all the best. Paradise High School is a very special place to be. We are honored to serve as the administrative team of such an outstanding high school. If we can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact one of us. 

Go Bobcats!
