School Programs & Standards

School programs have a strong academic focus throughout a rigorous 4-year curriculum that includes emphasizing career paths for all students, opportunity programs for high-risk students, alternative education options for students with special needs, extensive Advanced Placement course offerings, and strong extra- and co-curricular programs.

The District has developed staffing standards for its comprehensive high schools, including a student-teacher ratio of 21:1, a student-counselor ratio of 352:1, and a student-assistant principal ratio of 587:1. Schools are provided with Health Services, including a Health Technician at each comprehensive site and a District school nurse, as well as a Library Media Center staffed by credentialed personnel.

Safe school environments are the standard, and a culture of friendliness exists between staff and students.

Staff Support

Recognizing the importance of staff development to quality education, the District strongly supports professional growth activities, including staff development days, school site-based training programs, attendance at conferences and seminars, and a Peer Assistance Review Program. The District has also committed both staff and financial resources to support technology in the classroom and throughout the District.
 
Because of the positive educational environment, the District has a stable staff with low turnover; most teachers leave the District due to retirement.

Collaboration & Communication

The District provides a collaborative working environment involving staffing, budgeting, program development, articulation with feeder elementary districts, and encourages productive and respected relations with its employees, Board of Trustees, students, the community, County Office of Education, and community colleges.

The District is highly communicative and interactive and fosters independent leadership and creative problem-solving.

El Dorado Union High School District has a strong growing student enrollment and is financially stable, enjoying a high level of community and parent confidence!
