  • Colton Joint Unified School District, A Purposeful Community

    Strong communities work together to reach common goals and achieve a bright future for everyone. At CJUSD, we believe in building a Purposeful Community by making strong connections between the business and professional communities, local government, other educational partners and community-based organizations, and our district, parents and students.

    Our Purposeful Community page highlights some of the work we are doing through this initiative and provides an opportunity to get involved.

  • Independent Study

    Independent Study is an alternative instructional strategy, but it is not an alternative curriculum. Students work independently, according to a written agreement and under the general supervision of a credentialed teacher. While students follow the district-adopted curriculum and meet the district high school graduation requirements, independent study offers flexibility to meet individual student needs, interests, and learning styles.

    Generally, success in independent study requires motivation and a commitment on the part of the student and parent/guardian. Independent study can be a great option for some students; however, it may not be the right option for every student who is not thriving at a traditional school. For more information, click here.

  • District accepting applications for Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee

    The Colton Joint Unified School District is currently accepting applications to fill openings on its Measure G Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee.

    The Committee's mission is to review expenditures to ensure they are within the scope of the measure and inform the public on the progress of bond-supported school construction projects. The Board-approved advisory committee meets four times per year. 

    Measure G is a $225 million school construction bond approved by voters in November 2008. Recent projects using Measure G funds include Grand Terrace High School, Joe Baca Middle School, the Colton High and Bloomington High school math and science buildings, and modernization projects at Grant, Lincoln, Crestmore and Lewis elementary schools.

  • Home Choice / Home Schooling

    The purpose of the Home Choice Program is to provide an optional K-8th-grade public education for families educating their children at home. Home Choice is built around an independent study model and acts as a support system to parents.  Home schooling parents desiring a complete curriculum, testing, tutoring, certificated teacher support and legal accountability will benefit from this program. 

    Now enrolling for the 2015-2016 school year.  

    Call 909-580-5828 for more information.


  • District focus is on learning and achievement for all students.
