    On September 15th the Acton-Agua Dulce USD hosted a financial training workshop for the District's authorized Charter Schools.

    Thirteen of our fifteen Charter's were represented at the training.  This was a fantastic turn out with over 25 participants in attendance.  The presenters focused on multiple topics including attendance reporting, financial reporting, cash flow management, best practices and a variety of other topics related to fiscal monitoring and oversight.Charter training 1

    The attendees expressed their gratitude towards AADUSD for hosting this training and felt the information was timely and beneficial to their schools.

    This training represents one example of how the District continues to be a responsible authorizer of its Charter schools by providing direction, allocating resources, understanding the Charter schools  financial position and building capacity for each organization.

  • Acton-Agua Dulce USD Successfully Refinances School Bonds, Saves Local Taxpayers over $530,000

    Posted by District Staff at 8/16/2016 1:00:00 PM

      Acton-Agua Dulce USD Successfully Refinances School Bonds,

    Saves Local Taxpayers over $530,000  Acton Community

    AUGUST 2, 2016 – LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – The Acton-Agua Dulce USD successfully completed a refinancing of its school bonds, garnering over $530,000 in savings for District taxpayers. 

    In the case of the Acton-Agua Dulce USD, it originally sold General Obligation Bonds in 2008 to fund certain improvements at the high school, including health and safety, and athletic facilities. This was done with the support of local voters, in accordance with the successful passage of Measure “CF.”

    A portion of the bonds have been repaid, with another portion outstanding and eligible for refinancing. Since the bonds are repaid from property taxes as approved by voters, any savings generated as a result of a refinancing are directly passed on to the taxpayers, the refinancing generated a saving of approximately 7.56% on prior bond payments.

    The District availed itself of the prevailing low interest rate environment. It successfully reduced its interest costs from the original rate of approximately 4.78% to a new, lower rate of 1.72%.

    The low rate also reflects the District’s healthy management and financial position. From a credit perspective, potential refinancing banks looked favorably at the District, offering very competitive rates.

    The Board of Trustees and District Staff greatly value the strong support we receive from our community. With their help, we were able to deliver on our promises for better facilities at Vasquez High School. . Now, we are pleased that we can lock in savings on our bonds and give back to our taxpayers.

  • High Desert School Middle School Crossing Guard

    Posted by Cesar Ortiz at 8/16/2016 8:00:00 AM

    Stop As requested by the Acton Agua Dulce Unified School District, the County of Los Angeles has completed a traffic study for crossing guard services at the intersection of East Antelope Woods Road and Crown Valley Road also, East of Sierra Highway and Crown Valley Road. 

    The criteria for crossing guard service at a stop-controlled crosswalk are that there must be at least 20 elementary and/or middle school-aged pedestrians per hour using the crosswalk on their way to or from school, and a minimum vehicular volume of 500 vehicles per hour passing through the same crosswalk. 

    After analysis of the data both of these intersections meet the criteria for crossing guard service. Beginning on September 6, 2016 there will be two crossing guards assigned to each of these intersections during morning drop off and when High Desert students are released at the end of the day. 

    The cost for the crossing guards will be funded by the Los Angeles County of Public Works, Traffic & Lighting Division.

    The safety of our Students has always been a priority of Acton Agua Dulce Unified School District; we could not be more pleased with the outcome. The district would also like to acknowledge the efforts of our district staff to work in partnership with Los Angeles County Public Works to see this project through.

  • Vasquez High School – Staff and Student Parking

    Posted by Cesar Ortiz at 8/15/2016

    No Parking We hope you are as excited as we are at the Acton Agua Dulce Unified School District about the progress made at the Vasquez High School campus
    over the summer.

    Our partners at the County of Los Angeles have road improvement work to complete before the final connection from the driveway to Escondido Road and parking in our new parking lot.

    Therefore, parking for students and staff will continue on Red Rover Mine Road until the final completion of the road work is done. The safety of students and staff is always a main concern; security will be assigned at the upper parking location to ensure safety for all.

    As always we look forward to welcoming back our students and kicking off another great school year.
