EUSD Transition to Common Core State Standards
As you may know, the State of California has joined 45 other states and the District of Columbia in approving national K-12 academic standards for math and language arts called Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The new standards are designed to prepare every student for success in college and their careers. Our district is well on our way with our transition to the CCSS. To learn more about the CCSS and what you can expect for your child in the future, click here.

Academic Performance Index Scores Released
Greenhills School students continue to demonstrate high levels of achievement with an API score of 884. We continue to have high expectations for our students’ academic and social success while supporting their growth in a safe, nurturing environment as we continually strive to strengthen our instructional program. Each child’s needs are accounted for in dedicated collaboration time each week discussing specific student needs, curricular focus, and avenues for improvement through our Professional Learning Communities. In addition to a strong curriculum and a caring environment, we pride ourselves on having very close communication with each parent, daily parent involvement in the classrooms, and active role in decision making for our school. Our students and parents know that when they become part of the Greenhills community, they are connected to something larger than just a classroom… they truly become part of our Greenhills family.
Our Eureka Union District students also collectively demonstrate sustained outstanding achievement when compared to neighboring districts. Once again, Eureka Union ranks first when compared to districts throughout Placer County and surrounding areas.
Second year in a row! 2012 and 2013!
Dear Principal Towne,
On behalf of California Business for Education Excellence, I write to congratulate you on the outstanding success your school has made in raising student academic achievement. After an extensive analysis of student achievement data for every public school in California, your school stood well above the rest in getting your students to grade level proficiency and beyond.
It is for that reason we have named you a California Business for Education Excellence Honor Roll School for 2013.
The list of Honor Roll schools continues to grow thanks to the hard work and effective practices of thousands of excellent principals, teachers and support personnel in our public schools.
This is a testament to the relentless focus on results for students that you, your staff and your peers have shown over the years. It is also a strong statement about how success is spreading in public schools across the state.
As an Honor Roll school you will be recognized in local and state media as well as events across the state. Your success story will provide hope and direction for many other public schools -- that all students can reach high levels of academic achievement.
Our heartfelt congratulations and thank you for a job well done. We look forward to telling your story and promoting your success.
James S. Lanich, Ph.D.
