The Fullerton Joint Union High School District, hereinafter referred to as "District," serves over 15,132 students in grades 9-12. The District includes six comprehensive high schools (Buena Park (BPHS), Fullerton Union (FUHS), La Habra (LHHS), Sonora (SOHS), Sunny Hills (SHHS), and Troy (TRHS), High Schools, La Vista Continuation High School (LVHS), and La Sierra High School (LSHS), the District’s alternative education high school.
The District student enrollment is drawn primarily from three north Orange County cities: Buena Park, Fullerton, and La Habra. District schools also serve students residing in parts of Los Angeles County and small portions of neighboring Orange County cities. The demographics of the District’s student population reflect the diversity of southern California: Hispanic – 51 percent, White – 26 percent, Asian – 19 percent, African American – 3 percent, and Native American – 1 percent. Eighteen percent of District students are English language learners who speak 41 primary languages. Students entering the District’s high schools come from four feeder elementary school districts with seven junior high or middle schools.
The District’s six comprehensive high schools and continuation and alternative high schools are working to meet the goals and objectives that have been adopted by the Board of Trustees. These goals and objectives were established with input from students, teachers, parents, community members, and administrative staff. They reflect the District’s commitment to every student attending school in the District. These goals form the basis of this District Technology Plan (DTP). In condensed form, they appear below:
- Provide high-quality programs of sufficient breadth and depth so that students will have achieved or surpassed District achievement standards and will have a satisfactory level of knowledge and skills to continue formal education and/or enter a productive occupation upon graduation.
- Provide the environment and programs so that students will meet or exceed District standards in attendance and personal behavior.
- Provide adequate, secure, well-maintained physical facilities, grounds, and equipment.
- Provide sound management of District resources.
- Provide effective internal and external communications.
- Provide proper recognition of students, staff members, parents, and other community members for outstanding accomplishments and contributions to the District.
- Provide programs and implement decisions so that parents, staff members, and students are satisfied with the support, quality, and characteristics of the schools/District.
