Superintendent's Letter

In his December Letter to the Community, the Superintendent describes important work that was done in 2018 and exciting work to be done in 2019 around student supports, facilities, high school alternatives, and budget realignment. 

"Taken together, I see all of this work to date as new possibilities for programmatic and facilities change as we continue to usher in a new era of improved student and staff outcomes in AUSD," he writes. "Please know we look forward to working in the new year to engage the Board and public in strategic planning efforts so we can keep up our efforts of turning challenges into opportunities to achieve and realize our vision of a district that helps each and every student achieve their potential."
