It is with great honor that I welcome you to the Travis Unified School District (TUSD) website.

Our Governing Board adopted new Goals in 2017-18 that serve to drive all our decisions and ensure that our actions are student focused and staff and community centered. The TUSD Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) describes all the activities, programs, and resource allocations that the District will take to achieve our goals. The LCAP can be found under the “About Us” tab on our website.
This year, our students will receive instruction from newly adopted texts in the following subject areas: social studies and history at middle school and high school; video design and business management for high school; and science for middle school. Professional Development will focus on math instruction at all levels, Positive Behavior Interventions of Support (PBIS), Universal Design for Learning (UDL) strategies, No Excuses University (NEU) and a new program to better support our teachers new to the profession. We will continue to make technology purchases to improve our learning environment for students and staff.
A number of major facility projects have been completed or are near completion: new solar panels and LED lighting have been installed at Cambridge, Center, Foxboro, Golden West, Travis Education Center, and Vanden; several new HVAC units were installed throughout the District; and renovations were made to a conference room in the District Office to better serve our staff for professional development opportunities. The most significant facility project is the modernization and remodel at Scandia Elementary. This $27 million project is scheduled to be completed in the Fall of 2018 and includes six additional classrooms; renovation to all classrooms; a state of the art media center; and a new multipurpose and administration building. We thank the staff and community for everyone’s flexibility through this process. All the inconveniences will be well worth it!
With the continued support from our parents and community coupled with the tremendous talents of our staff, the 2018-19 school year promises to be another year of great learning and discovery here at Travis Unified School District!
