Principal: Mr. Frank Fuentes
Burbank Community Day School provides a classroom environment in which students work to improve behavior, attendance and academic performance. The curriculum is aligned with that of the District's comprehensive middle and high schools and is based on the District and State adopted content standards.
Our schoolwide purpose is to support optimal student achievement both academically and behaviorally by utilizing a proactive systems approach for creating and maintaining a safe and effective learning environment. This is achieved by teaching expected behaviors, creating student behavioral and academic support systems, and applying data-based decision-making to discipline, academic, and social/emotional learning.
The staff consists of 4 teachers, 3 instructional assistants, an Office Manager, a campus supervisor and Principal. The Coordinator of Alternative Education, the Director of Student Services, and Student Services Attendance Workers provide additional support for the program. Family Service Agency of Burbank staff provides additional counseling services to students and their families thanks to an outside agency agreement.
Staff maintains consistent communication with the students' parents, who play an active role in the teens' education by attending meetings and, in some cases, attending class with their teen. Positive recognition is a goal of the staff, rewarding students for making progress behaviorally and academically. We encourage students to do their best with recognitions that include Student of the Month, Most Improved, and gift certificates from local businesses.
