Superintendent's Message

It is hard to believe we have less than two months left in the school year. It is gratifying to see the progress we are making on many fronts in our school district. As of this writing, the teachers' and administrators' unions have agreed to a salary increase for this school year and next year. Our classified union negotiating team has approved an MOU which must be approved by our classified Union members which would lead to a salary increase for this school year and next year. Our Board of Education has been adamant about doing everything we can to compensate our employees fairly, especially since all of our employees took furlough days from 2009 to 2014. Our most important assets are our employees.      

Our schools have begun to develop innovative programs and academies that address the needs of their students and build on the talents of our staff at each school site. We have begun to restore programs such as our Gifted and Talented program, increase our Advanced Placement courses at El Rancho High School and improve services to special education students. We will begin to assess the implementation of our Local Control Accountability Plan through meetings and surveys with parents, staff and students.

Based on our board's direction and in alignment with our School Facilities Master Plan, we are moving forward with improved air conditioning at El Rancho High School, the construction of new buildings, science labs and innovation labs in our district, and improving drop off and pick up zones at our impacted schools.

Beginning with the first day of school in August, our schools will open at 7:00 a.m. to welcome our students and provide a safe place to eat breakfast and have to time to play and mingle with their classmates before school begins. This will also provide more time for our parents to get to work and know their children are safe. There is more to come for the 2015-16 school year. We are proud to have you and our students in our schools as we transform our district.
