    Measure HSD Dollars Making a Difference    

    In 2018 the voters in the Hawthorne School District approved Measure HSD, a bond for school improvements. In the last several months we have seen our schools benefit from the work we have been able to complete utilizing these bond dollars.

    We have been able to replace our aging air conditioning units. Our schools have new flooring. Some schools are getting some much needed window replacements and paint throughout the school. We have upgraded our play areas for students. We are beginning to see some smaller improvements including new curtains on our stages across the district, and we will soon see new marquees at all of our sites.

    We are proud of the work that goes on in our schools. It is important to be proud of our facilities also. We have staff who work hard to keep our schools in great condition, but it is important to complete the big jobs too. Measure HSD has allowed us to do that so our schools can look good on the outside and be wonderful environments for our students on the inside.

    Thank you to the Hawthorne residents who made this work possible!

    Making College Accessible

    In the Hawthorne School District, we are committed to ensuring that our students are equipped with the tools, skills, and knowledge necessary for success in both college and career.  To this end, we joined with California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) last year to submit a Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) partnership grant proposal to the U.S. Department of Education. We were recently delighted to learn that our GEAR UP partnership was one of only twenty-four in the country to be funded this year. The approval of this partnership means that our current sixth grade students will be provided with access to seven years of targeted academic support, college-focused counseling, college campus visitations, and family workshops focused on topics such as the college admissions process and financial aid options.  This type of long-term commitment is rarely seen with federal grants, and its impact on our students will be significant.  Projects associated with the GEAR UP grant are already underway, with the creation of College and Career Centers at each of our middle school campuses, the recruitment of CSUDH students to serve as tutors in a number of our classrooms, and the coordination of a trip for almost 800 sixth graders to the CSUDH campus this June.  We are so pleased to be able to offer these and many more services to our students as we work to support them on their path to postsecondary education.
