Superintendent

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!  I am thrilled to be starting my second year serving as your superintendent. 

 

We celebrated many successes during the 2013-2014 school year.  We prepared for and are ready to implement what we call the BIG FIVE: 1) the Local Educational Agency Plan revision, 2) Common Core State Standards, 3) Smarter Balanced Assessments, 4) the Local Control and Accountability Plan, and 5) Local Control Funding.  More information on these topics can be found throughout the district website.

 

Preparing for these initiatives included a great deal of professional development.  We know that improving the knowledge and expertise of our staff will greatly benefit our students.  Between June 9 and August 8, FSUSD offered workshops to over 1,192 participants.  Topics included Common Core for English Language Arts and Math, Common Core Literacy for Content Area Teachers, Cognitive Coaching, Special Education 101, Functional Writing, Capturing Kids' Hearts, and much more.  As a result, the quality of our instruction and our educational knowledge has increased significantly.

 

There was also a major increase in the use of technology throughout the district, resulting in considerable savings in paper costs.  Many of us are now using Google documents as a way of sharing information, scanning documents and emailing them rather than making copies, and using electronic agendas for Board meetings, committee meetings, and staff meetings.  The use of technology in the classroom has increased substantially; whiteboards and chalkboards have been replaced by Smart Boards and Smart TV's.  Many students are using iPads, Chromebooks, iPhones, and tablets for instruction and submitting assignments electronically.

 

Other accomplishments during 2013-2014 include positive bargaining relationships and agreements with all employee units; developing a three-year plan for programs and facilities; the use of Facebook, Twitter, the district website, surveys, and all calls to increase communication; and facilities clean-up, upgrades, and construction.

 

Great things will be happening in 2014-2015 too!   We have a number of administrative changes resulting in nine of our schools receiving a new principal.  These principals have already spent a great deal of time on their campuses over the summer months.
 

Our entire administrative team received professional development from Rachel’s Challenge prior to the start of school.  We are also completing the Leadership Blue Print provided by Capturing Kids’ Hearts.  Our goal is to provide the best quality instruction and customer service to our students, parents, and community.

 

We look forward to a year of increased attendance.  Research has proven over and over the importance of positive school attendance.  Our district has hired eight attendance liaisons to provide assistance to parents and students who are chronically absent from school.  By improving attendance rates, we will improve graduation rates and reduce the drop-out rate and incidence of crime. 

 

Fairfield-Suisun Unified is a district on the rise.  We will continue to move toward integrating technology into the classroom, providing options for students, and ensuring a rigorous education for all students.
