EUREKA CITY SCHOOLS HONORS STUDENTS WHO 
RECEIVED PERFECT SCORES ON THE CAASPP STATE TESTING


Eureka, California - October 27, 2021 – The Eureka City Schools (ECS) Board of Trustees will celebrate the achievements of three students who received perfect scores on one or more of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) tests, otherwise known as the Smarter Balanced (SBAC) Assessments, in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics for the 2021 testing year.    

According to Assistant Superintendent, Michael Davies-Hughes, “This is a great accomplishment for these students, especially considering the challenges in mastering the California State Standards during a pandemic.  We are proud of the dedication of these students.  This is a recognition not only to the students, but also to the teachers, support staff, and families who helped them along the way.”  Out of the more than 1,000 students who took the tests in grades 3-8 and 11, one elementary student, one middle school student, and one high school student, received a perfect score on one or more of the CAASPP exams.  One student, district-wide, received a perfect score on both the ELA and Math portions of the assessments. 

The ECS Board will recognize each of the students for their stellar achievement at the ECS Board Meeting on Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 6:30 p.m.  The students and their respective 2020-2021 schools are Willow Dinning - Washington Elementary School, Rina Ferroggiaro - Zane Middle School, and Alyson Johnson - Eureka High School.

EUREKA HIGH SCHOOL RECOGNIZED FOR EXCELLENCE IN POSITIVE BEHAVIORAL INTERVENTIONS AND SUPPORTS
09/24/2021
Eureka High School (EHS) is proud to announce the California Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Coalition awarded EHS with a GOLD recognition for excellence.

PBIS is a system of proactive, research-based, behavioral and cultural supports needed for any student to achieve academic and emotional success. PBIS enhances the important supportive relationship between positive classroom-wide culture and individual student success. Over the past eight years, the entire staff at EHS has been committed to implementing PBIS with fidelity and creating school-wide supports creating a welcoming and safe community for all students.

At EHS, some of these supports include clearly defined behavioral expectations, social and emotional learning for all freshmen students, community building circles, Stellar Student Awards for positive behaviors, and alternatives to suspension such as the Boys and Girls Club Teen Court Program.

Implementing PBIS continues to show a reduction in the number and intensity of disciplinary occurrences, a greater sense of safety in the school, a more positive school climate for students and school personnel, healthier relationships among and between students and adults (including parents and guardians), higher attendance rates, and an increase in school-home communication.
