    Our Governing Board adopted Goals in 2019-20 that serve to drive all our decisions and ensure that our actions are student-focused and staff and community-centered.

    • Focus on instructional excellence to increase achievement for every student using support systems to improve student learning and to close achievement gaps in order to prepare students for college and career.
    • Ensure a safe and productive environment using support systems to maintain calm classrooms focused on learning and to enhance student social and emotional wellness.
    • Enhance constructive communication within and outside of the school community with a special focus on involving parents as active partners in their child's education.
    • Provide basic services and manage resources responsibly while maintaining the collaborative budget process. Enhance, create, and modernize facilities that support lifelong educational programs.                                

    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 for science at the elementary schools. New courses at the high school level include computer science at Travis Education Center and Chemistry in Earth Systems and Link Crew Leadership at Vanden High. Professional Development will continue to 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 air conditioning units installed at Center Elementary; some flooring replaced at Center and Cambridge Elementary; beautification of Vanden High's gym; fresh paint at Cambridge and Golden West Middle School; curbs and blacktops painted at Foxboro Elementary; windows sealed at Travis Elementary; in addition, the kindergarten play area at Travis Elementary will be resurfaced and the asphalt at Scandia Elementary will be sealed in the near future. The most significant facility project is the modernization and remodel of Scandia Elementary. This $27 million project is completed and includes six new 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. 

    With the continued support from our parents and community coupled with the tremendous talents of our staff, the 2019-20 school year promises to be another year of great learning and discovery here at Travis Unified School District!
