Principals’ Message
The 2011-2012 school year marks the eighth year of existence for Carter High School. The Class
of 2012 has the distinction of being the seventh graduating class of Carter High School. Our school
has developed into a leader in education, athletics and extra-curricular opportunities. The leadership
efforts of our outstanding staff, coupled with a supportive parent/guardian and business community,
have greatly influenced the success of Carter High School. We have refined our vision to reflect our
goals for student success with the involvement of the entire school community. This past year Carter
High School has focused on “Culture, Curriculum and Collaboration” and was the central theme of the
school’s vision. As Carter has begun to establish its traditions and school culture, the vision has been
modified to encourage cultural and social awareness, respect, strong curriculum and collaboration as a
means to empower students to be life-long learners who contribute and lead in a global society.
Carter High School is reaching new heights of rigor by increasing our Advanced Placement offerings
during the 2011-2012 school year. Grade 11 and 12 students were able to choose from new AP courses
such as AP English Language, AP English Literature, AP Government and AP U.S. History. We also
provided 13 teachers with extensive AP training at the end of the school year to increase the instructor
effectiveness. The increase in AP courses allows Carter students the opportunity to earn college credit for
and increased GPA to make them more competitive in the application process for the CSU/UC programs
across California. Carter High School is focusing on career and college readiness for all of our students.

The goal of Carter High School’s progressive discipline program is to provide
students with opportunities to learn self-discipline through a system of
consistent rewards and consequences for their behavior. The school-wide
discipline plan, which reflects the district’s behavior code, is implemented
in a consistent and positive manner. Well-managed classrooms, and clearly
defined expectations and consequences have resulted in an environment
where learning flourishes.

In the event of habitual truancy, students may be referred to the District’s
School Attendance Review Board (SARB). The SARB is utilized when
students have persistent attendance and behavior problems in school, and
when the normal avenues of classroom, school, and district counseling are
not effective.
Homework
The chart illustrates the trend in
enrollment at the school over the
past three years.
Homework is a fundamental part of the learning process that helps to develop
academic and study skills, as well as promote student responsibility and
self-discipline. Homework is assigned on a nightly basis for all grade levels
and major subject areas. Each teacher determines the appropriate level of
homework for his or her students. Students are expected to complete their
homework assignments in a timely manner and to the best of their ability.
Parents/Guardians are encouraged to provide a supportive environment for
homework activities and to review homework assignments with their child.
School Leadership
Leadership
at
Carter
High
School is a responsibility shared
among district administration,
the principals, instructional staff,
students, and parents/guardians.
Student Recognition
Positive recognition creates a learning environment that fosters respect for the
individual and promotes self-esteem. In addition to verbal praise, the following
awards and recognition programs are ongoing at Carter High School: Noontime activities, Honor Roll Certificates, Perfect Attendance Certificates, Pep
Rallies, Daily Announcements, School Newspaper, Honor Roll & Senior
Awards Nights Programs, Sports Assemblies, Positive phone calls/postcards
to parents, Parent Link, School Marquee, Digital Display Boards, Achievement
Luncheons and CAHSEE Proficiency Field Trip.

Attendance, tardy, and truancy policies are clearly stated, consistently
enforced, and consequences are fairly administered. Parents/Guardians are
advised of their responsibilities, including proper notification of when and why
students are absent. The school staff tracks attendance using the PlascoTrac
system and makes daily phone calls to parents/guardians when children are
absent. When a student has repeated tardies or unexcused absences a letter
is mailed home, and a parent/guardian conference may be scheduled.

School districts receive financial support from the state for the education
of the students they serve based on how many students attend each day.
Most importantly, attendance is critical to academic achievement. Student
attendance is carefully monitored to identify those students exhibiting
excessive absences.

Primary leadership duties at the school have been assumed by Principal
Christine Foote and Principal Felicia Limbrick since July 2009. Staff members
are encouraged to participate on various committees that make decisions
regarding the priorities and direction of the educational plan. These teams
ensure that instructional programs are consistent with students’ needs and
comply with district goals. Avenues of opportunity include: Leadership Team,
English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), School Site Council (SSC),
Departments, PLC Guiding Coalition, Parent Involvement Team (PIT), and
Instructional Leaders Team.

Counseling & Support Staff (School Year 2011-12)
Parent & Community Involvement
In addition to academics, the staff strives to assist students in their social
and personal development. Staff members are trained to recognize at-risk
behavior in all students. The school values the importance of on-site
counseling and has procedures in place to insure that students receive the
services they need. Staff members are devoted to helping students deal with
problems and assisting them to reach positive goals. The counselor-to-pupil
ratio is 1:607. The chart displays a list of support services that are offered to
students.
Parents and the community are very supportive of the educational program
at Carter High School. Parents are encouraged to become involved in
their child’s education by volunteering at the school, participating in school
activities, and joining the School Site Council, English Learner Advisory
Committee, Parent Involvement Team (PIT) and Booster Clubs. Numerous
programs at the school have been enhanced due to generous contributions
and donations from local businesses and service organizations.

A constructive evaluation process promotes quality instruction and is a
fundamental element in a sound educational program. Evaluations and formal
observations are designed to encourage common goals and to comply with
the state’s evaluation criteria and district policies. Temporary and probationary
teachers are evaluated twice a year and tenured teachers are evaluated
every other year.
Evaluations are conducted by the principal, who has been trained and certified
for competency to perform teacher evaluations. Evaluations are based on
the “California Standards for the Teaching Profession,” which include the
following: Engaging and Supporting all Students in Learning; Understanding
and Organizing Subject Matter for Student Learning; Assessing Student
Learning; Creating and Maintaining Effective Environments for Student
Learning; Planning Instruction and Designing Learning Experiences for all
Students; and Developing as a Professional Educator.
Due to the state fiscal crisis, additional funding from the State of California that
would provide an opportunity to offer district-wide professional development
through “Buy Back Days” has not been available for the past three years.
Rialto Unified School District (RUSD) has worked within the state fiscal
crisis to provide an alternative plan of action for staff development, and has
established a comprehensive District-wide Professional Development Center
(PDC). The PDC provides ongoing staff development in a variety of formats
throughout the school year (i.e. after school, on-site, weekends, and during
instructional breaks). In addition to the PDC, teachers have access to online
materials as another alternative professional development format. Finally, with
district and union collaboration, early release/collaboration days have been
established at secondary schools to support RUSD’s commitment to on-going
professional development.
At-Risk Interventions
Carter High School offers guidance counseling, intervention classes and
tutoring for students who may be falling below grade-level standards. Summer
school courses are also offered through the district.
English Learners (EL)
For additional support in their profession, teachers may enlist the services
of the District’s Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) support
provider and/or the Peer Assistance and Review (PAR) Program.
English Learner (EL) students designated as Level I or II are placed in the
Newcomer Program at Rialto High School. Level I or II individuals are assigned
to appropriately credentialed teachers and offered sheltered instruction using
English Language Development (ELD) materials. EL students who are at
Level III, IV, or V are integrated into mainstream classrooms at Carter High
and provided with English language support. The school offers tutoring to the
parents/guardians of EL students so that they may better support their child’s
educational and homework needs at home.
Teacher Assignment
Rialto Unified School District recruits and employs only the most qualified
credentialed teachers.
Teacher Credential Status
Special Education
School
Students with special education needs are accommodated with a variety
of options and in the least restrictive environment possible. An Individual
Education Plan (IEP) is developed for any student with emotional, social, and/
or developmental disabilities. The IEP defines the individualized instruction a
special needs student will receive, which may include placement in one of the
Special Day Classes, the Resource Specialist Program, and/or sessions with
other members of the support staff.

number of positions filled by teachers who lack legal authorization to teach
that grade level, subject area, student group, etc.
In a continuing effort to reduce the student dropout rate, Carter High School
has developed instructional alternatives for students with difficulties. Among
the programs offered, counseling, attendance incentives, referral to alternative
schools, and teacher intervention have proven to be most effective.

organization, note-taking, writing, and study skills are instructional emphases in AVID.
California Standards Test (CST)
The California Standards Test (CST), a component of the STAR Program, is administered to all students in the spring to assess student performance in relation
to the State Content Standards. Student scores are reported as performance levels: Advanced (exceeds state standards), Proficient (meets standards), Basic
(approaching standards), Below Basic (below standards), and Far Below Basic (well below standards).
The first table displays the percent of students achieving at the Proficient or Advanced level (meeting or exceeding the state standards) in English/language
arts, mathematics, social science, and science, for the most recent three-year period.
The second table displays the percent of students, by
group, achieving at the Proficient or Advanced level
(meeting or exceeding the state standards) for the
most recent testing period.
For detailed information regarding the STAR Program
results for each grade and performance level, including
the percent of students not tested, see the CDE STAR

Student Achievement & Testing
Rialto Unified School District has developed a comprehensive assessment and accountability plan to ensure that information regarding student performance
is used to continuously improve the instructional program and to communicate with parents/guardians about their child’s achievement. In addition to the
Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program, teachers utilize district Benchmark Assessments, Common formative assessments, classroom
observations, class work, homework, report cards, and reports to determine whether each student is performing below, at, or above grade level standards.
English Learner (EL) students take the California English Language Development Test (CELDT) every year until they have been re-classified as “English
proficient.” Some learning-disabled students take the California Alternative Performance Assessment (CAPA) in lieu of the California Standards Test (CST).
Physical Fitness (School Year 2011-12)
Percentage of Students in Healthy Fitness Zone
In the spring of each year, the school is required by the state to administer a physical
fitness test to all ninth grade students. The physical fitness test measures each
student’s ability to perform fitness tasks in six major areas: Aerobic Capacity, Body
Composition, Abdominal Strength, Trunk Extension Strength, Upper Body Strength,
and Flexibility. Students who either meet or exceed the standards in all six fitness
areas are considered to be physically fit or in the “healthy fitness zone” (HFZ).

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) (School Year 2011-12)
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) is a federal law enacted in January 2002 that reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). It mandates
that all students (including students who are economically disadvantaged, are from racial or ethnic minority groups, have disabilities, or have limited
English proficiency) in all grades meet the state academic achievement standards for mathematics and English/language arts (ELA) by 2014. Schools must
demonstrate “Adequate Yearly Progress” (AYP) toward achieving that goal. The Federal NCLB Act requires that all schools and districts meet the following
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) requirements:
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)
• Participation rate on the state’s standards-based assessments in
ELA and mathematics.
• Percent proficient on the state’s standards-based assessments in
ELA and mathematics.
• API as an additional indicator.
• Graduation rate (for secondary schools).

Academic Performance Index (API)
The Academic Performance Index (API) is a score on a scale of 200 to 1,000 that annually measures the academic performance and progress of individual
schools in California. The state has set 800 as the API score that schools should strive to achieve.
Statewide Rank: Schools receiving an API Base score are ranked in ten categories from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest), according to type of school (elementary,
middle, or high school).
Similar Schools Rank: Schools also receive a ranking that compares that school to 100 other schools with similar demographic characteristics. Each set of 100
schools is ranked by API score from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) to indicate how well the school performed compared to similar schools.
The first table displays the school’s statewide and similar schools’ API ranks and API point changes by
student group. “C” means the school had significant demographic changes for that year.
The second table displays, by student group, the Growth API at the school, district, and state level.

Federal Intervention Program (School Year 2012-13)
Schools and districts receiving Federal Title I funding enter Program Improvement (PI) if they do not make AYP for two consecutive years in the same content
area (English/language arts or mathematics) or on the same indicator (API or graduation rate). After entering PI, schools and districts advance to the next level
of intervention with each additional year that they do not make AYP. For detailed information about PI identification, see the CDE PI Status Determinations

Textbooks & Instructional Materials (School Year 2012-13)
Pursuant to the settlement of Williams vs. the State of California, Rialto Unified School District held a public hearing to determine whether or not each school
had sufficient and good quality textbooks, instructional materials, and/or science laboratory equipment. The date of the most recent resolution of the sufficiency
of textbooks is August 22, 2012.
All students, including English Learners, are given their own individual textbooks and/or instructional materials (in core subjects), for use in the classroom and
to take home if necessary. Additionally, all textbooks and instructional materials used within the district are aligned with the California State Content Standards
and frameworks, with final approval by the Board of Education. The table displays information collected in November 2012 about the quality, currency, and
availability of the standards-aligned textbooks and other instructional materials used at the school.

Additional Internet Access/Public Libraries
For additional research materials and Internet availability, students are encouraged to visit the public libraries located in the cities of Rialto and Colton, which
contain numerous computer workstations.
Curriculum Improvement
Carter High School’s curriculum is written in compliance with the state framework and model curriculum standards dictated by the California Department of
Education. The district’s Curriculum Committee is the primary leadership team responsible for monitoring and evaluating the curriculum. Decisions concerning
curriculum improvement are then made through a collaborative effort among school representatives, ensuring that all changes are school-wide, not isolated to
a single class or grade.
Science Lab Equipment
Carter High School stocks an adequate supply of equipment for its students. Inventory includes, but is not limited to, microscopes, slides, ring stands, clamps,
support rings, utility clamps, test tubes, test tube holders, test tube brushes, crucible tongs, flasks, beakers, and Bunsen burners. Specific equipment exists for
specific courses such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Earth Science. Software for labs and lab demonstrations has also been provided for newly adopted
courses. For a complete listing of inventory, please contact the school office at (909) 854-4100.
College Preparation
The school’s counseling staff organizes and chaperones numerous group tours of area colleges throughout the year. The 2010-11 school year was the final
year Carter High School received funds from the GEAR UP grant. The program provided funding for additional academic counseling staff and assists students,
parents/guardians, and teachers in gaining access to higher education through academic support, information, and enrichment programs.
Students at Carter High School are encouraged to take University of California/California State University (UC/CSU) preparatory courses if they plan to attend
a four-year university. All students must pass each course with a grade no lower than a ‘C’.

Admission Requirements for California’s Public Universities
University of California
Admission requirements for the University of California (UC) follow guidelines set forth in the Master Plan, which requires that the top one-eighth of the state’s
high school graduates, as well as those transfer students who have successfully completed specified college course work, be eligible for admission to the UC
system. These requirements are designed to ensure that all eligible students are adequately prepared for University-level work.
For general admissions requirements, please visit the UC Admissions Information Web page at http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/admissions/.
California State University
Eligibility for admission to the California State University (CSU) is determined by three factors:
• Specific high school courses
• Grades in specified courses and test scores
• Graduation from high school
Some campuses have higher standards for particular majors or students who live outside the local campus area. Because of the number of students who apply,
a few campuses have higher standards (supplementary admission criteria) for all applicants. Most CSU campuses have local admission guarantee policies for
students who graduate or transfer from high schools and colleges that are historically served by a CSU campus in that region. For admission, application, and
fee information see the CSU Web page at http://www.calstate.edu/admission/admission.shtml.

California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE)
The California High School Exit Exam is primarily used as a graduation requirement in California, but the results of this exam are also used to determine
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for high schools, as required by the Federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law. The CAHSEE has an English/language arts
section and a math section and, for purposes of calculating AYP, three performance levels were set: Advanced, Proficient, and Not Proficient. The score a
student must achieve to be considered Proficient is

School Safety
The safety of students and staff is a primary concern of Carter High School. All visitors to the campus must sign in at the office and wear a visitor’s pass at
all times. Supervision is provided to ensure the safety of each student before school, during breaks, at lunch, and after school. Supervision is a responsibility
shared among parent/guardian volunteers, teachers, and administrators.
To further safeguard the well-being of students and staff, a comprehensive School Site Safety Plan has been developed by the School Site Council. The Safety
Plan was most recently updated in spring 2012 and revisions and updates are reviewed immediately with the staff. Key elements of the Safety Plan focus on
the following:
• School rules & procedures • Current status of school crime • Child abuse reporting procedures • Policies related to suspension/expulsion • Safe ingress & egress of pupils, parents/guardians, & school employees
• Disaster procedures/routine & emergency drills
• Notification to teachers
• School-wide dress code
• Sexual harassment policy
The school is always in compliance with the laws, rules, and regulations pertaining to hazardous materials and State earthquake standards. Safety drills,
including fire, earthquake, and code yellow, are held monthly.
Cleaning Process:
The school provides a safe and clean environment for students, staff, and volunteers. The district’s Board of Education has adopted cleaning standards for
all schools in the district. Basic cleaning operations are performed on a daily basis throughout the school year with emphasis on classrooms and restrooms.
A joint effort between students and staff helps keep the campus clean and litter-free. The principals work daily with the school’s custodial staff to develop
sanitation schedules that ensure a clean, safe, and functional learning environment.
Maintenance & Repair:
A scheduled maintenance program is administered by the school’s custodial staff on a regular basis, with heavy maintenance functions occurring during
vacation periods. Additionally, a scheduled maintenance program is administered by Rialto Unified School District to ensure that school grounds and facilities
remain in excellent repair. A work order process is used when issues arise that require immediate attention. Emergency repairs are given the highest priority;
repair requests are completed efficiently and in the order in which they are received.
Deferred Maintenance Budget:
The district participates in the State School Deferred Maintenance Program, designed to assist school districts with expenditures for major repair or replacement
of existing school building components. Typically this includes roofing, plumbing, heating electrical systems, interior or exterior painting, and floor systems. In
2012-13, the district did not allocate additional funds toward the deferred maintenance budget.
