Description

Ford Elementary is a K-5 school located in Richmond, California and part of the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD). The overall community has historically been one of the San Francisco Bay Area's most underserved communities despite having among the state's highest rates of poverty, crime, violence, school failure, unemployment, gang activity, teen pregnancy, and alcohol and other drug problems. These problem indicators are reflected at Ford Elementary, where 100% of the student population qualifies for Free and Reduced-Priced Lunch. Though, despite these obstacles the Ford community is hopefull, energetic and inspired to work on behalf of student learning and enrichment.
