  1. Corona Norco Unified School District - LCFF
    Local Control Funding Formula

    On June 27, 2013, Governor Jerry Brown approved the biggest reform to school funding in the last 40 years. The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) gives school districts freedom on how they spend educational dollars. The LCFF doesn’t mean that there are more dollars. However, school districts will have more authority to decide how to distribute the funds they are given. We want to involve you in the decisions we make regarding the educational services we provide. Please help us to accomplish this goal by watching the informational video below and taking the attached survey.

  2. La Sierra University Graduates Largest Class in School’s History 2017 - Highlight Film
    06/20/2017 - Author: Darla Martin Tucker
    RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- Early on the morning of June 18, before the heat of the day set in, long lines of black-robed graduates, many adorned with colorful leis and graduation caps, stood on the upper mall of La Sierra University’s campus waiting for the organ’s resounding strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” to begin at 8 a.m.

    “It doesn’t seem real,” said Kaitlyn Witherby, a management and marketing double major as she stood in line with her classmates. “I’m excited, nervous, but mostly excited,” said chemistry and Spanish major Caleb Flores of Fresno.

    A short time later, Kristen Soares, president of the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities stood before La Sierra’s 2017 graduating class seated on Founders’ Green and advised them to create memory imprints of the day and of other special moments in their lives. She also told the graduates to value setbacks and mistakes as resilience-building moments along the path toward their goals.

    Soares gave an address titled “Be Present” for La Sierra’s commencement which saw 475 students, the university’s largest graduating class to date, receive 494 degrees.

    The AICCU represents the chief executives of California’s 79 private, nonprofit colleges and universities and those institutions’ 330,000 students on issues of public policy. Soares’ efforts include advocating for the Cal Grant, a state financial aid program for higher education. Before joining the AICCU, Soares served as a senior associate vice president for government relations and civic engagement at the University of Southern California for 23 years.

    La Sierra University is a Seventh-day Adventist non-profit co-educational university located in Riverside, California, United States. La Sierra offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level degrees and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Adventist Accrediting Association.

  4. University of Redlands Graduation Ceremony Marketing Video

    The job was to capture the essence of human emotion experienced by graduates, family and friends at a graduation ceremony. The University of Redlands was looking for a marketing piece to use as part of their advertising campaign for recruitment. Our video production company filmed six graduation and commencement ceremonies within a single week. It was a great assignment reminding us of what is really great about education and taking pride in yourself. Observing the sense of accomplishment in the voice, expressions, tears and body language in these young adults ready to face the world was inspiring. Sharing the experience with parents, family and friends, all bursting with pride was a great feeling. We have produced several projects for this client and know it is a great campus.
