THE LATEST: The majority of Wednesday night’s Capistrano Unified School District meeting was dedicated to discussing the district’s Wildly Important Goals (WIGs) for the 2016-2017 school year.

WIGs concentrate on three main topics in the district, and are broken down to concentrate on certain elements including teaching and learning, communications and facilities. The WIGs were finalized by the board in November 2015, and on Wednesday night, the district staff discussed their goals for the current school year.

Some of the facilities goals discussed include completing new classroom building at San Clemente High School and San Juan Hills High School, and construction is set to be completed by Aug. 18, 2017. The district also wants to see the implementation of an energy reduction plan.

In the education services goals, the district would like to see an increase of test results, including the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASP) in math and ELA by three percent.

The Board of Trustees will meet next on Oct. 12 at 7 p.m.
