Voter Information Regarding Measure S

  • Vote Duarte Unified School District public schools are the foundation of a healthy thriving community. We focus every day on helping our students thrive. However, our classrooms are aging and were built before the "digital age." Although well maintained, these schools require significant repairs and upgrades after decades of constant use. Meanwhile, today's teaching and learning standards have changed, requiring more and different instructional spaces, and all our schools need ongoing safety and security upgrades.

    Additionally, the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are creating additional challenges for school districts trying to meet current health and safety standards. Over the past years, Duarte Unified School District has received feedback from the community, parents, and teachers on our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), Competitive Advantage Plan (CAP), and Facilities Master Plan. Measure S is the result of these community conversations and provides a prudent responsible plan to address our most critical facilities needs. NO other funding currently exists to repair and upgrade these facilities. 

    Measure S is a school bond measure on the November 3, 2020, ballot seeking voter authorization for local funding to repair and upgrade DUSD school facilities. A "YES vote" approves funding for the District's plan to repair and upgrade schools; a "NO vote" rejects the plan. All voters living within Duarte Unified School District boundaries of who are registered to vote will be eligible to vote on this ballot measure. Click here for more information.

M.I.T. News

  • Creating Creators at M.I.T. High School

    M.I.T. High School provides an alternative setting for students whose needs are better met in a more flexible, personalized, and self-paced program. Our 180 Accelerated Degree program affords students a diploma and industry certifications upon graduation in several emerging Career Technical Education (CTE) Pathways. A fifth-year senior graduation program is also available that is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Our partnership with Creating Creators has brought The Cinema Project to M.I.T. Our students learn the craft of film production from industry professionals including actor Goya Robles, and they conduct press interviews at red carpet events like the South East European Film Festival. These opportunities are leading to jobs and internships with prominent Hollywood studios. “Innovation is the name of the game here, and having the support of partners offering real industry experience is a real game-changer for our students’ futures,” shared Principal Morris.
