Message from Superintendent
Dr. George Mannon
The District website, tusd.org, gets a new look!
Communication is a key element in engaging with our parents. The District website, www.tusd.org, is one way for the District to provide information and resources to our parents. We have restructured and redesigned the District website to be more user-friendly. We hope the improved design and navigation will help parents and community members easily find the information they are searching for.
Technology affords us the capability to utilize various methods of communication to keep parents informed. Here are a few other ways in which the District communicates with Parents:
Press Releases – General press releases allow the District to highlight student growth and academic success. Press releases also provide parents with information regarding educational activities happening throughout the District, about upcoming events, as well as academic resources, which can help parents support student learning beyond the classroom.
School News Rollcall - School News is the District’s quarterly newspaper, which highlights important topics, events, and academic accomplishments at each one of our schools. Be sure to check out the current edition as well as previous publications on our website.
Facebook - The District has a Facebook page! On Facebook the District posts pictures and provides information about upcoming events and topics important to parents and the community. Be sure to like us on Facebook so you can be in the know!
Board Meetings on Youtube - Attending Board meetings is another opportunity for parents to communicate with the Board of Education and TUSD administration, or just stay informed of what is happening in the District. Missed a meeting? You can now watch previous meetings on youtube (starting from July 2015). Meeting links can be found on the District website at: http://www.tusd.org/boe/board-meetings or can be accessed via youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbq7tYW93VwtKL1pqFsb2TA.
Torrance Alerts – The City of Torrance’s mass notification system, Torrance Alerts, allows residents and community members to receive alert messages in case of an emergency or other City related issues (such as street closures, police activity, etc.). To sign-up for Torrance Alerts please visit the City website at: http://www.torranceca.gov/TPD/28447.htm.
