From the desk of Ms. Linson
Welcome to Folsom Lake High School. As we journey through the new 2019-2020 school year, I am excited to work alongside families, students, staff and our community to provide a positive school experience for students and their families. With continued support, my hope that all students will complete high school by earning a high school diploma. I continue to be inspired by the dedication and commitment of our entire staff as we work together to support students in achieving this goal.
The primary focus of FLHS is to provide a positive and supportive environment to enable and empower students to close credit recovery gaps to graduate on schedule, and to gain skills they can use post-graduation in either college or their careers. Over the past two years, Folsom Lake has been working to build a Career Technical Education (CTE) program, providing students with exposure, experience and skills that are preparing them for post-secondary pathways, with a Marketing class and an E-Business class. In addition, to the CTE classes, we also offer a Forensics class and a Physics of the Universe course.
My focus for the 2019-2020 school year is to introduce the ideology of Collective Efficacy. This is when a team believes that through our unified efforts we can overcome challenges, having a direct impact on school culture and behavior which promotes student achievement. I am truly honored to work alongside such an outstanding group of educators who is dedicated to student success. We are here to push, encourage and guide students in a positive direction for the purpose of opening doors to a bright future. Together we have built extraordinary community partnerships and aligned curriculum with the comprehensive high schools. Last year, the class of 2019 achieved a graduation rate of 91% with hard work, the support of parents and educators coming together.
As we start a brand new year, I want to thank you for your dedication to our students and to our school.
We will overcome our challenges together; We will strive to work beside you, as we kick off yet another school year! This is going to be a great year!
