Individual Learning Plan (ILP) for 2015-16
By the time we head into break Mr. Vazquez (our counselor) will have met with students regarding their ILP. This plan outlines courses to be taken for next year as well as providing preliminary feedback on the need for summer school. The ILP document is what our school uses to program students for the 2015-16 school-year. Because of its importance, we have asked each student to review their plan with a parent or guardian and return a signed copy to school no later than Tuesday, April 14th. Signed ILPs can be returned to the main office or given directly to Mr. Vazquez in the Career Center. Please do not hesitate to touch base with Mr. Vazquez or myself should you have questions or concerns.
Community College Summer Session
Some students have expressed an interest in taking a community college class during the summer. This can be a challenging yet rewarding experience for students. The application process is coordinated by the individual college campuses. Any student wishing to attend a community college course at LBCC or neighboring community college must submit all paperwork to the specific college and take their required assessment exams no later than May 1. Because Mr. Vazquez and I need to complete some paperwork for the students, we have asked any student wishing to take community college classes to meet with one of us before they leave for Spring Break. It will be extremely difficult to complete the process if they wait until after break.
Pathway Night – Monday, April 20 6:00 to 7:30 PM
In an effort to showcase the wonderful work of your students and provide some insight into future directions for the pathways, we will be hosting an event on our campus April 20. Each pathway will meet in separate rooms. A flyer on the event will be sent home shortly. Our hope is you can see where your students have been, where they are going this year, and gain a glimpse into the future years. Each lead teacher will also be asking parents and students to provide pathway specific feedback to help in our improvement efforts. We want to hear what is working, and where we need to grow. Please make every effort to attend.
I want to personally thank all parents and guardians who took the time to complete the survey. Your support is greatly appreciated. We hope to receive our raw data in a few weeks. We look forward to working with our parents and guardians as we develop our growth plans for the coming year. We also want to recognize our students and staff for having one of the highest completion rates of any school in the district. Kudos to both groups for providing our school vital feedback on our progress and helping us be aware of needed growth.

Good attendance is one of the major factors for student success in school. Maintaining good attendance school wide also helps our district maximize their Average Daily Attendance (ADA) funding. School districts receive the largest portion of their operational funding based on attendance. If we can meet our attendance rate target of 95.41% our site will receive a check from the district to be used to support school wide activities such as field trips, campus events, etc. Below are a few suggestions on how you can help McBride exceed our targets and help the students succeed in the classroom.
1. Please be sure students clear absences the day they return to school. Absences are cleared when the student or parent/guardian submit a note to the main office indicating the date(s) and reason for the absence.
2. Understand the state only recognizes illness, doctor’s appointments, court appearances, and death of an immediate family member as excused absences. All other reasons have to be marked as unexcused.
3. Because we do not get funding credit for unexcused absences please avoid missing school for vacations and trips.
4. Students must see their teachers immediately following an absence to obtain make-up work.
5. Please inform the main office if a student will be out of school for multiple days. Student’s should also communicate with their teachers via School Loop to get make-up work.
Three Pathways- One Vision
Three Pathways- One Vision
McBride High School has three pathways, McBride Engineering, McBride Health Medical and McBride Public Services-Forensics. All three pathways engage students around their interests, find relevant connections to real world activities, and gauge student learning through collaborative, hands-on projects. All three pathways prepare students for the demands of college and the workforce. With workplace learning experiences in their 12th grade year, all three pathways empower and inspire students to make their own path and determine their own future.
A Unique Experience
McBride High School looks and feels different than any other high school you may have seen. With four career labs and other specialized spaces students will demonstrate what they have learned through projects, team collaboration and connections with industry partners. Students will collaborate in open areas designed for each pathway. Teachers will also work as a team to meet the needs of individual students and create a coherent educational experience. Addressing subjects at each grade level and centered on a career-themed course, students will see the natural connections between the theme of their pathway and English, History, Science and Math.
All three McBride pathways are focused on completing the UC and CSU Entrance Requirements (a-g) with a sequence of courses that are aligned to college expectations. Each pathway expects to create options for students to earn college credits while in high school.
