Changing is the single word that can be used that best describes the Los Banos Unified School District. We are changing to ensure that all students master District curriculum standards. We are upgrading and building new school facilities to house our rapidly increasing enrollment. We are spending more resources training our staff to ensure all children have highly qualified teachers in their classrooms. Teachers and administrators are working collaboratively to find out what we are doing well and identify those areas needing improvement. Programs include Vocational Education, Technology Education, and specialized reading and mathematics programs. Los Banos Unified School District is focused on becoming a destination district, where families choose to locate as a result of the quality instructional programs that are offered. It is our belief that all collaborative community efforts are productive, because schools belong to all of us. We encourage and seek the support and active participation of our citizens in educational issues.
