District Announcements


The Yolo County School Boards Association (YCSBA) will recognize Mr. Jeff Sammons and Mrs. Alexis Kersting for their leadership in developing the EHS Advanced Placement Program on Monday, May 1, 2017.


Program Excellence Award, EHS Advanced Placement Program

Jeff Sammons & Alexis Kersting

The Esparto High School program has become nationally recognized due to the efforts of Mr. Sammons and Mrs. Kersting. These two individuals have systematically ensured the Advanced Placement program through student recruitment, curriculum development, professional development, and innovative scheduling. Esparto High School, which serves approximately 275 students, offers seven Advanced Placement courses in five subject areas.


Mr. Sammons has created a belief among many in our community that our students could pass their AP exams if they received the proper instruction and committed themselves to prepare for the exam. He begins by establishing high expectations for 10th grade students in the first of their three AP History classes (European, United States, and Human Geography). In addition, Mr. Sammons devotes one week every year to serving as an AP exam reader/evaluator.


Mrs. Kersting is to be recognized for creating a master schedule that allows all students to access these much needed college-level courses. She is also to be commended for creating a belief among our student body, which is predominantly first-generation college going, that they can and will succeed in college-level courses. The school recently received a special distinction from the College Board, designating them as an "Honor Roll" Advanced Placement program and our two recipients will be presenting at the 2017 Advanced Placement National Conference in Washington D.C.


The Yolo County School Boards Association (YCSBA) will recognize Board Clerk Bonnie Simas for her leadership in the Esparto Unified School District on Monday, May 1, 2017.


Individual Excellence Award, Bonnie Simas

Board Clerk Bonnie Simas is recognized for her outstanding leadership within the Esparto Unified School District. Bonnie has been an advocate for academic programs in our district at all school sites. Her leadership helped bring attention to the district's Special Education services and programs. As a result of her efforts, our special education programs increased the amount of academic support provided to students.


Bonnie has also been a staunch supporter of athletic programs in our district. Due to her advocacy, the school district has increased athletic budgets at all sites and increased compensation for coaches. These increases have allowed our district to provide championship and playoff-level programs in soccer, football, baseball, softball, and volleyball. In addition, she ensured that the district re-instated athletics transportation for all sports which resulted in huge increases in student participation. Bonnie also played a crucial leadership role in the EUSD athletic field project which will provide renovated and new softball, baseball, and football fields for our students.


On April 26 & 27 and May 17 & 18, all 11th grade students will be participating in the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments, which are part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System. Esparto High School was recognized in 2016 or high achievement in the area of English Language Arts and increased scores in math.  


On April 5,2017 Esparto High School will be hosting all current 8th grade students for the annual Freshman Preview Day. Students will be accompanied to the High School by teachers and staff from Esparto Middle School.  The students will begin their visit by taking a math diagnostic test. Students will also learn about graduation requirements, tour the campus, meet teachers, and select elective courses for their 9th grade year.


Parents are welcome to attend Freshman Preview Day!  The orientation program in the EHS Auditorium at 10:30 a.m.  Please check in at the front office of the high school if you are a parent who plans to attend the event with your student.


Attention Students and Parents:

This is a reminder that new flashing light crosswalks have been installed along Yolo Avenue. We encourage our students to use these new sensor-operated safety features as they make their way to and from school each day. Our school principals will be talking to students about these new flashing light crosswalks. 



To prepare all students to be life-long learners by providing an environment that motivates them to grow to their highest potential and become community-minded, responsible citizens who participate in and contribute to society.
