President/CEO's Message
ELITE Public Schools is a TK-12 charter public school located within the boundaries of Vallejo City Unified
School District (VCUSD). ELITE stands for Equipping Leaders through Innovation, Technology and Engineer-
ing.
The educational experience for students in ELITE Public Schools is designed to ensure that students meet rig-
orous academic standards while being exposed to curricular and extracurricular offerings that prepare them
to enter prestigious four-year colleges and universities and become global leaders.
ELITE is comprised of four design elements that form the foundation of our success:
entrepreneurial skill development, language development, a dual immersion pathway, and the African Amer-
ican and Latino cultural heritage program. These elements provide students with the opportunity to invent,
discover and develop themselves to achieve the necessary skills to be successful as they move forward in
their lives and careers.
ELITE offers additional features that include:
  •   Full-day transitional kindergarten (TK) and kindergarten (K)
  •   Sports programs

all students and eliminate the opportunity gap.

Nutrition Services: The schools meals program ensures students are receiving nutritionally balanced, low
cost meals while attending school.
Staff That Believes It Can Happen: Probably the most important component of all is staff that remains posi-
tive, and believes that they can make a difference in a student’s life by utilizing the mentioned strategies to
reduce school disruption and by creating a positive and nurturing school culture.
The school safety plan was last reviewed, updated and discussed with school faculty and staff in August 2020.

for the number of classrooms by size. The number of classes indicates how many classrooms fall into each
size category (a range of total students per classroom). At the secondary school level, this information is
reported by subject area rather than grade level.

California Physical Fitness Test
Each spring, all students in grades 5, 7 and 9 are required to participate in the California Physical Fitness Test

  1. Aerobic Capacity                    4. Abdominal Strength and Endurance                                                    CAASPP by Student Group:
