This district has been good my entire experience but the new rules for Seniors are ridiculous. We weren’t told about needing all 6 classes until we had already chosen our classes at the end of junior year. Most of the bathroom stalls don't lock, the schools are all packed because of all the seniors required to be on campus. We don’t even like some of our classes because all the good electives were taken because we couldn’t choose them til later. We have to stay in school til the very last day. These changes all started this year and everyone is upset, including parents and teachers.
As a friend, I've been told, Sacramento City Unified School District is a great school. They have over 81 schools around the city and they have 47,900 students that attend there. All of the kids are between grades of K-12. According to the state test scores, 30% of students are at least proficient in math and 30% in reading. Teachers are great here and they love their job and you can tell that by their outstanding work. The work environment seems great. What I would do to change the environment is to inspire more students to have more spirit in their schools. I would have more activities and clubs around the schools. I would have more transportation so kids get to school and get back home. I would also fire some staff since they don't know what they are doing from what I heard.
