CCUSD Board Authorizes New Courses in Advance of State Requirements

At the Culver City Unified School District’s March 22 Board of Education Meeting,  the English Department from CCHS presented data supported with student voices for transitioning into an English College Preparatory curriculum for grades 9 and 10. Presented as a move to prepare all students for college readiness and AP classes, the new curriculum will include a focus on ethnic studies in both 11th and 12th grades. 

Although Ethnic Studies is not a new course at CCHS, the Board adopted it as a graduation requirement starting with the Class of 2026, which is only a few years before the State of California requires it as a graduation requirement.

CCHS is expanding its Ethnic Studies course offerings to include a variety of choices to match student interest by interweaving an Ethnic Studies focus into other subjects. The Board passed the following courses for the 2022-23 school year:

English 11: Ethnic Studies & Literature
English 12 – Ethnic Studies and Literature
Art and Culture: (Grades 9-12)
Ethnic Studies – Race and Sports in American Society (Grades 11 & 12)

AP World History was also passed at the meeting. Robotics II and Advanced Music Composition will be on the next Board agenda, April 12, 2022.
