Survey finds Brawley Elementary School District under state level

Posted: Updated:

Brawley, CA--A mid-year review by the Imperial County Office of Education found that schools in the Brawley Elementary School District were not meeting the state average level for language Arts and Math.

"So based on these were going to make the necessary changes and recommendations that we need to improve. So as a parent I would be very pleased with that fact it's not only an incentive but it's also a guidance to make sure we can improve on the program," Ron Garcia, superintendent of the Brawley Elementary School District said.

Garcia said the state of California provided additional funding for the district to start the changes.

He said one of the improvements include monitoring classroom instruction.

"That could improve observations and visitations by resource teachers and principals with in the classroom itself," Garcia said. "We can make sure we're providing the student's assessments that'll give us good data, so that data can drive good instruction on where we need to make changes."

ICOE reported that the "English learning" population has increased 20 percent in the past three years.

Garcia said the English learning population are one of the top priorities the district will focus on.

He said slowly but surely the district will bring all schools up to par with the recommendations.
