Welcome to Corona Norco Unified School District! I am very proud to have you as one of our many wonderful members of the community! Corona Norco Unified is the largest district in Riverside County. We have over 8,000 English Learners in our district representing well over 45 languages. We take pride in serving all of our English Learner needs in various ways. Approximately 98% of our staff, including teachers and administrators hold state certification for teaching English Learners. Staffs, including principals, teachers and bilingual paraprofessionals have received staff development which enables them to teach in a manner that is accessible to English Learner at various levels of English language proficiency.
 
CNUSD offers four program options for each English Learner. All program options lead to English proficiency. The description of these options is available to you via a DVD at all sites as well as by having a meeting with your site administrator upon enrollment at any CNUSD school.
 
We have various opportunities for you to be involved in our schools. Please join us at your child's school for the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), and School Site Council (SSC) meetings. They are very informative and can assist you in knowing how to make the best of your child's education at the school level. In addition, you can also participate in our District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). This committee consists of one representative from each school who will attend monthly meetings at the district level.
 
As you may be aware, the triangle is one of the strongest shapes. Keeping that in mind, you can see that if the student, the parent and the school work together, the student can only have success! Again, welcome to CNUSD!
