California Common Core Standards

Aligned with IUSD's own Continuous Improvement Efforts, the Common Core State Standards outline what students should know and be able to do in reading and mathematics from kindergarten through the 12th grade.

These new standards reflect the knowledge and skills deemed critical for college and career success, are benchmarked to the standards of the world’s top-performing countries and mark the first time that states have shared a common set of expectations for the nation’s K-12 students. As such, they have been endorsed by the University of California, the California State University system and California Community Colleges.

New Student Enrollment

Enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year opened March 7. For students new to the district, IUSD has set up an online data entry process to help you get started with the enrollment process. You must have a valid address within the Irvine Unified School District attendance area to use this system. Verification of residence and immunizations will be required before you complete the enrollment process. To learn more, click here.

Local Control Funding Formula

California’s budget for 2013-14 brought major changes to the way school funding is allocated, with the goal of channeling greater resources to the students who need them most.

Naming IUSD's Next High School

IUSD is asking community members to submit naming suggestions for Irvine's next high school via this online input form. All entries received by the Sept. 26 deadline will be reviewed by Superintendent Terry Walker and his staff, which will then make a recommendation to the Board of Education.
