8 WVUSD schools earn place on California’s Honor Roll

 

WALNUT, CA--Eight Walnut Valley Unified schools have earned a place on the 2016 California Honor Roll for high performing schools.

 

They are: Evergreen Elementary, Quail Summit Elementary, Westhoff Elementary, Chaparral Middle School, South Pointe Middle School, Suzanne Middle School, Diamond Bar High School, and Walnut High School. 

 

The annual Honor Roll is part of a nationwide effort to recognize schools leading the way in helping students achieve at the highest levels.

 

The program is sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) and Educational Results Partnership (ERP).

 

The annual Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle, and high schools that demonstrate consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps.

 

For high schools, the Honor Roll recognition includes high college readiness in students.

 

This year, 1,866 public schools in California received the title of 2016 Honor Roll school.

Student Fees: The California Constitution mandates that public education be provided to students free of charge, unless a charge is specifically authorized by law for a particular program or activity. This constitutional right of free access encompasses all educational activities, whether curricular or extracurricular, and regardless of whether credit is awarded for the educational activity. The right of free access also prohibits mandated purchases of materials, supplies, equipment or uniforms associated with the activity, as well as the payment of security deposits for access, participation, materials or equipment. A process that allows for a waiver process for an otherwise mandatory fee, charge or deposit does not render it constitutionally permissible.
