During February 2006, in an effort to heighten the awareness as to the importance of attending school for both students and parents, the Escondido Union High School District embarked on a major campaign, MAP Your Future, Reach Your Destination. MAP is a simple acronym to help keep school success as a goal for all students and emphasizes these important messages: Maintain an academic focus, Attend school daily and Participate in school or community activities.
The Escondido Union High School District, along with the Escondido Union School District, San Pasqual Union School District and California State University San Marcos has created a community- wide partnership for academic reform and college admission. Joining these efforts are the Escondido Chamber of Commerce and the City of Escondido. With focus and commitment to the critical areas of MAP, students will now be able to gain automatic admission to CSUSM and benefit from tuition assistance.
Beginning with the class of 2011, students who complete all four years of high school on an Escondido Union High School District campus and achieve the following benchmarks will be eligible for guaranteed college admission to a California State University, San Marcos and will be eligible to receive tuition assistance.
M Maintain a rigorous course of study (completing A through G UC/CSU admission
criteria with a 3.0 GPA)
A Attend school daily (maintaining a minimum of 98% attendance
P Participation in school and/or community activities (minimum total of 100 hours)
