Dolores Huerta Elementary School and Jordan High School received an additional boost of support when city and school leaders visited those campuses to celebrate the new school year.
Superintendent John Deasy and School Board Member Monica Garcia started off their day by visiting Principal Suzie Gutierrez at Huerta Elementary. During the visit Principal Gutierrez emphasized the school’s focus on teacher collaboration and their thriving community of learners. The group also got an update on the success of the Partnership's teacher leader programs and toured the parent center where they learned about the school’s highly engaged parent community.
At Jordan, Principal Carlos Montes gave Dr. John Deasy a tour of the ongoing redevelopment construction and updated him on the construction progress. Later in the day Councilman Joe Buscaino, joined by Mark Hovatter, Head of the LAUSD Facilities Division and members of School Board President Vladovic's staff, also toured several newly built classrooms and even climbed to the rooftop of a newly erected building.
It was a great way to kick-off to the new school year with the support of both the city and the school district!
