My grand daughters who live in San Clemente are in overcrowded classrooms with many kids with special needs and poor English language skills.
The Capistrano Unified School District had a grades 9-12 dropout rate of 1% in 2008. The national grades 9-12 dropout rate in 2007 was 4.4%.
In the Capistrano Unified School District, 9% of students have an IEP (Individualized Education Program). An IEP is a written plan for students eligible for special needs services.
The Capistrano Unified School District serves 15% English Language Learners (ELL). ELL students are in the process of acquiring and learning English Language skills.
Sorry about your grandkids situation but 40% of the state
tax going to education should be enough. Top heavy at the
administrative level and overloaded with dubious programs,
the kids in the classroom are paying the price.
