Message from the Superintendent of Schools

  • Dear Eastside Community,


    We are grateful for your ongoing support and commitment to the success and bright future of each and every student in our district. This past school year, we experienced many successes as well as many challenges. We are proud of the hard work of our students, teachers, principals, school and district office staff, and Board of Trustees.

    Even though we had to shift from our traditional school model, one thing that did not waiver is our determination to provide students with a quality learning experience. We want to thank our students, teachers, and families for quickly pivoting to respond to this unprecedented time in public education.

    This past year has provided us with an opportunity to reflect on all the things we do well in the Eastside Union School District and to seek out new and exciting ways to better support our students and community of stakeholders. Our goal is to continuously improve teaching and learning opportunities for all students. This will take all of us working together as a team. To demonstrate our commitment to ongoing and continuous improvement, we will work to be even more strategic as we refine our instructional, operational, and equity practices. This past school year, we began to review and evaluate our guiding principles, goals, instructional and operational practices and programs. We will continue to seek input from our stakeholders as we implement our goals, programs, and initiatives that will make us an even stronger district.

    Your continued commitment to our students and to our schools is greatly needed and appreciated as a vital component of our success. By building on the great work we have started, I am confident we will reach our goals. It is an honor to work with such a dedicated community, and I know that because of our collaboration, every student will reach his or her highest potential and will leave our district prepared to succeed in high school, college, career and life. Imagine the Possibilities!
