State Supt. Tom Torlakson Announces College Readiness Grants
SACRAMENTO— State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today that nearly 1,000 school districts will receive grants to help students prepare to attend college. The grants come from a College Readiness Block Grant (CRBG) program administered by the California Department of Education. The grants were established to increase the number of students who enroll in institutions of higher education and complete an undergraduate degree in four years, with a special emphasis on helping English learners, economically disadvantaged students, and foster youth.
Esparto High School has been awarded a $75,000 College Readiness Block Grant and the draft plan for implementation has been crafted by Alexis Kersting, EHS Counselor. For more information about the College Readiness Block Grant, please visit the Esparto High School web page.

Sun Valley Rice is sending representatives to Esparto High School on Thursday, October 27, 2016 to learn more about the school's Career-Technical Education programs. Our school hopes to develop internship opportunities with Sun Valley Rice in the future. One student leader from each CTE program will make a short presentation during the visit. The Sun Valley Rice visitors will tour the Ag Department, the Bioengineering room, and the Spartan cafe.
The Esparto Unified School District continues to receive support from two of the school district’s most charitable alumni. The George W. & Isabel M. Story Charitable Fund was established in 2011 to supplement the cost of conducting mathematics and science courses by providing money to purchase training aids, test equipment, tutors, and guest lecturers from universities. The George W. & Isabel M. Story Charitable Fund recently gave an additional $30,000 to the Esparto Unified School District in support of mathematics and science education.
The Esparto Unified School District thanks Mr. George and Mrs. Isabel Story for their continued donations, which now total more than $100,000. The achievements of the students of Esparto High School, both current and alumni, who have benefited from these donations are a testament to the generosity shown by Mr. George and Mrs. Isabel Story. Many students who have benefited from the improved math/science education at Esparto High School are now attending universities such as UC Berkeley, UC Davis, Pomona-Pitzer College, UC Los Angeles, and UC San Diego.
