IUSD's next high school
IUSD is looking to open a fifth comprehensive high school in September 2016 to avoid overcrowding at Irvine, Northwood, University and Woodbridge high schools. With the planning process spanning several years, the district and its developer partners have agreements in place for a 40-acre parcel near the northeast border of the Great Park, frequently referred to as Site A. Meanwhile, an alternative location known as Site B is also being evaluated.

California Common Core standards
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) outline what students should know and what they should be able to do in reading and mathematics from kindergarten through the 12th grade. Aligned with IUSD's own Continuous Improvement Efforts, Common Core promotes the knowledge and skills necessary for competitive colleges and careers, is benchmarked to the standards of the world’s top-performing countries and marks the first time that states have shared a common set of expectations for the nation’s students.
IUSD parents and families of K-12 children are encouraged to learn more about positive parenting classes and effective support groups offered through the Irvine Family Resource Center. These courses, scheduled throughout the year, provide strategies for eliminating power struggles, teaching critical life skills, promoting responsibility and encouraging problem-solving and good behavior.
Morning and evening sessions are available. To learn more about the center’s programs, click here. For additional questions, contact Susan Holt at 949-936-7502.
