  • 2021 Graduation Ceremony

    We are excited to announce that we will be holding an in-person graduation ceremony this year for the class of 2021. BUSD will continue to follow LACDPH guidelines for graduation. This means that while we are able to hold an in-person ceremony, it will look different from previous years. BUSD staff will continue to work closely to assure a special and safe graduation for our seniors. Additional information will be sent to senior parents from their school site in the coming weeks.

  • Unified Sports Program at Mayfair Middle/High School

    Congratulations to the Unified Sports program at Mayfair Middle High School. The program led by Lindsey Hutton, Education Specialist, Kristina Robertson, Adaptive Physical Education Teacher, and Anne-Marie Sharp, Adaptive Physical Education teacher is the recipient of California’s leading educational honor, the Golden Bell Award. The Golden Bell Awards are presented by the California School Boards Association (CSBA) to promote excellence in public education and school board governance by recognizing outstanding programs and governance practices. Bellflower Unified School District believes that “positive relationships and strong sense of community connect students to learning,” which is evident in its mission to empower students to “demonstrate respect for themselves and others in a dynamic, diverse, and global society.” Unified Sports is an innovative program that exemplifies this mission as its goal is to promote inclusion and acceptance by providing students opportunities to “train together and play together” in team sports. Students participate in competition in areas including basketball, cheerleading and track. Congratulations to Mayfair’s Unified Sports program for receiving the Golden Bell Award.

  • School Recognition

    Congratulations to Las Flores Home Education and Independent Study Academy for receiving a full six year WASC Accreditation. Bellflower Unified is proud to announce that seven of our schools have been named to the 2019-2020 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for their high achievement in student success. The program, sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes. Schools that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. Academic achievement is based solely on State academic test results. Bellflower High, Mayfair High, Esther Lindstrom, Stephen Foster, Intensive Learning Center, and Albert Baxter were recognized at the Star level and Las Flores Home Education Independent Study Academy was recognized at the Star and STEM level. Star level recognizes schools with greater than, or equal to, 33 percent of students designated as socioeconomically disadvantaged that are high performing and are reducing achievement gaps while STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) level recognizes a subset of the Honor Roll schools that have both high-percentages of low-income students and high levels of math and science achievement. Bellflower Unified is proud of these schools and their dedication to Bellflower Unified School District’s vision of building futures for our students.

  • BUSD Fiscal Information

    I know there is concern that BUSD is in financial distress. This is not the case. The District prevailed today against LACOE's action for immediate intervention. The Courts denied all relief requested by the County. The District is allowed to continue to operate as a fiscally independent District, the District will continue to provide fiscal information in the manner that it has in the past and was approved under fiscal independence, the District is not required to allow the fiscal advisor into BUSD and the District is able to continue to pay all of its financial obligations. The court has allowed the County an opportunity to amend their complaint, but as of today, BUSD has prevailed on all counts. This is only round one, of what will be a long process there are still other legal actions before the Court. For those that believe this is a waste of taxpayers money, it is. The County is using your money to go after BUSD, and BUSD is having to defend itself from the County’s false claims. This is a money grab by the County. As always, BUSD is in an extremely strong financial position, and the Los Angeles County Office of Education knows this.
