Recognitions at the October 25th Board Meeting
During each monthly Board of Education meeting, time is allotted for recognition of students, staff, business partners, and schools that bring honor to the Fontana Unified School District and further its mission to improve the quality of education. There were several recognized at the Board Meeting on October 25, 2017.
Pledge of Allegiance
Brandon Sanchez Lopez, a senior at Fontana High School, was selected to lead the Board of Education in the Pledge of Allegiance.
"Brandon is an amazing scholar who understands that education is important for the success of his future," said Superintendent Randal Bassett. " Brandon will be the first in his family to attend a four-year university. He is an amazing role model for his younger siblings. Brandon has always been a very hard working and dedicated student. He plans to be a veterinarian majoring in biochemistry and will apply to UC Davis, UC Irvin, UCLA or UCR. He has received multiple awards and acknowledgments from Fontana High school, one being the Gold Dison Award every year since he started at Fontana High School. The award recognizes his outstanding GPA, being an athlete scholar in cross-country and track. He has worked very hard and was honored by being the captain of the cross-country team. Brandon is also part of the California Scholarship Federation and our school Madrigal club. He passed several AP exams including calculus, and Spanish language. Brandon has volunteered in our schools and has been a huge help for us."
Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) Model Schools
The Board of Education recognized five FUSD schools who were recently recognized by the California Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Coalition for their efforts in fostering positive and supportive campus environments, leading to a boost in student excellence and a decrease in behavioral issues.
"Earning 2016-17 silver certifications were Sequoia and Truman middle schools and Citrus and Oleander elementary schools while Date Elementary School earned a bronze certification," said Oscar Dueñas, Associate Superintendent of Student Services. "They are among the state’s 807 schools recognized with silver and bronze awards for incorporating intervention strategies to define, teach and support appropriate student behavior, and achieving positive results."
