One month into the 2016-2017 school year, students, teachers, and parents have settled into their routines. By this point in the year, the nervous excitement of the new year has faded and transitioned into the hustle and bustle of day to day activities. TUSD serves the families of nearly 24,000 students and our primary goal is to maximize the potential of each and every one of our students.
Student success is made possible through the collaborative efforts of a District community. Our teachers, classified employees, and administrators work in unison to ensure that each student is receiving the educational experiences they need to achieve academic success. Recently we had the opportunity to recognize the crème de la crème of our already exemplary employees – I would like to once again congratulate our Employees of the Year; Doreen Asari, Gayle Hall, Razia Khan, Carlyn, “Andy” Jones, Zobedia Merlos, Miguel Moreno, Greg Wheeler, and a special shout out to Shelley Miller our representative for the Los Angeles County Department of Education Teacher of the Year Program.
As Superintendent, I am so proud of all that we have accomplished together. The teamwork, dedication, and strategic leadership are evident throughout the District.
