Centralia School District has collected input from stakeholders who have served on the district’s LCAP Committee for the past two years. At this time, we are seeking new LCAP Committee members to replace half of the current stakeholders in an effort to allow new perspectives and input, while retaining half of the existing members to provide the committee with continuity. The committee meets approximately 4-6 times a year, typically between February through June, to receive information from the evaluation of the current plan and to ask questions and provide input on possible modifications to next year’s LCAP prior to it being brought to the Governing Board for adoption in June.

If you are interested in joining this committee, please return the bottom portion of this form by Wednesday, April 5, 2017, to any school office or the district office. Committee members will be chosen by lottery and you will be notified if you have been selected. Thank you for your interest and willingness to be a part of this committee helping to shape our plan for student success.


Curious as to how Centralia compares in the new California School Dashboard? Click HERE to see how we are preparing today's scholars for future excellence.


The California School Dashboard (www.caschooldashboard.org) is an online tool designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and schools. The Dashboard features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success. The Dashboard is just one step in a series of major shifts in public education, changes that have raised the bar for student learning, transformed testing, and increased the focus on equity. Want to learn more about this new measurement tool? See the video produced by the California Department of Education.




The Centralia School District’s Child Development Programs at Centralia, Danbrook, and San Marino Schools are open and accepting new enrollees for their newly expanded preschool programs.

The Centralia School District was awarded grant funding to offer additional preschool programs to income eligible students ages 3 to 4. This new expansion of the district’s award winning programs increases access for 100 more young scholars to make meaningful connections to learning by providing an optimal learning experience in a safe environment and enhance knowledge and skills to support continual paths of learning.  “Early childhood education is a subject matter that is of great importance to our board and District,” shared Superintendent Norma Martinez.  “With their support, we have been able to expand our early childhood education programs so that more eligible children can have a seat at the classroom table.”

CESD Kindergarten teacher Elizabeth Cruz sees the benefits of the district programs. “Students who have participated in the Centralia District Preschool Program have developed countless skills for school readiness,” she shared. “Student vocabulary is more developed, and students are better equipped to communicate their needs and solve problems. Other skills, such as listening, learning routines, sharing, and working together give them skills that will support success in kindergarten and their entire school career.  Communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking begin with preschool in Centralia.”

Enrollment is open now to children who will be 3 or 4 years of age by September 1st. Child Development Services staff are available to answer eligibility questions and to help enroll families, please contact: (714) 228-3153.

For more information, please see the attached flyers.


The Centralia School District School calendar for the 2017-18 School year is now available here and on your school site page. 


We are pleased to announce that America On Track, an award winning nonprofit organization, is implementing an exciting new 3-year physical activity, health and nutrition program at all 8 Centralia Elementary School District schools.


The project, On Track Through Fitness & Nutrition, is made possible by a Carol M. White Physical Education Program (PEP) grant awarded to America On Track from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Safe & Healthy Students. This project will also feature a local partnership with Northgate Markets, and the City of Buena Park.


In addition to helping all CESD students become more physically fit through fun PE classes and other fitness activities, America On Track will be coordinating a variety of services that promote lifelong physical activity practices and healthy eating habits.


America On Track will be providing and coordinating the following services:

  • Weekly classes led by physical education specialists in conjunction with the classroom teacher;
  • 5-week nutrition education curriculum;
  • Viva la Salud Health and Wellness Program in partnership with Northgate Markets;
  • Professional development for school staff and PE specialists in partnership with California State University, Fullerton.

In addition to the training and curriculum, CESD schools will also receive:

  • $2,000 worth of equipment,
  • an opportunity to win $10,000 for a permanent or semi-permanent sports equipment
  • an option to have school gardens

For more information, please see the attached letters that are being sent home with each of our students. 


We are so excited to implement this program at our schools and to support the wellness of the whole child.
