LBUSD fares well in exit exam results

The California High School Exit Examination results were released this week, and they revealed that more than 95% of Laguna Beach High School 10th-graders passed both tests for English-language arts and math.

In English-language arts, 238 out of 251 students passed, bringing the pass rate to 95%.

Students were stronger in math, with 96% passing. Only nine students did not pass.

LBUSD's results were better than the county and the state averages.

Countywide, 88% of students passed both the math and English sections. Statewide, 83% passed math and 82% passed English.

LBUSD preps for first day of school

Laguna Beach Unified School District's Facilities, Grounds and Construction Department started pre-first day procedures to make sure all four school sites are up to par when the school year starts.

LBUSD will conduct safety inspections, deep clean, do any necessary maintenance and repairs along with renovations or construction that needs to be done.

"In 2001, our community overwhelmingly passed General Obligation Bond Measure 'R' to refurbish our schools and grounds. The District, in turn, made a commitment to our community to maintain the refurbished facilities by implementing a twenty year Facility Repair and Replacement Program," Norma Shelton, assistant superintendent of business services, said in a statement. "The current Board of Education included within their strategic goals 'safe, attractive, clean and well-equipped learning environments will be provided for each student.' The LBUSD staff is dedicated to achieving and maintaining that goal."
