Our School District

The Upland Unified School District is located in Upland, California at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. The school district consists of a pre-school, ten elementary schools, two junior highs, one high school, one alternative, and one adult education school.  

The accomplishments of its students, teachers, and staff continue to grow and enrich our district’s long history of excellence. We invite you to visit our campuses to learn more about our educational programs.

Mission Statement

Three-Year Goals

We are happy to share our 2014–2018 goals with you. Please read more about our strategic plan by viewing the document at the side of this page. We place equal importance on achieving all of our goals:

  • Implement a multi-tiered system of supports that aligns programs and services to meet the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of all students
  • Ensure equitable access and use of innovative technology
  • Improve consistency, equity, and rigor in teaching and learning experiences
  • Improve parent and community engagement

Local control Accountability Plan

In June of 2013, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a new method for funding schools with a plan for accountability. The new funding model is the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). 

LCFF, and its local accountability counterpart, the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), are anchored by the notion that we must do better to support all students, especially our under performing students. The LCFF significantly changes the funding formula for school districts. The new model allocates funding on a per pupil basis with more money attached to meet the needs of the most at-risk students. The LCFF identifies three categories of students requiring greater resources: 1) students who qualify for free or reduced priced meals, 2) students who are English Learners, and 3) foster youth. 

School districts must create a Local Control and Accountability Plan to spend their allocated funds. The plan outlines eight priority areas that our LCAP Goals and Actions must address. Our school board approved our first LCAP at the end of June 2014. Our LCAP plan must undergo a yearly review and revision process.
