It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Travis Unified School District for the 2017-18 school year! I was appointed Superintendent in February 2017 and I could not be more excited - or honored. Travis is recognized as an outstanding school district in our community. This is due to our dedicated staff coupled with the support of our parents and the community. This partnership benefits our students in promoting their academic, emotional, and social well-being and contributes to making Travis the very special place that it is!
I am so proud to be the leader of a district with a variety of programs offered that support student learning. Travis USD has a long standing tradition of academic support and enrichment including music, art, technology, robotics, athletics and after-school programs, to name just a few. In addition, as any strong business organization should, the District's budget reflects the priorities of professional development, instructional materials, technology and facilities. As we continue to strive to offer the very best education for our students, the District will continue to focus on the priorities developed with input from all our stakeholders and outlined in our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
This year, our professional development will concentrate on strategies to support learning in the classroom as we continue full implementation of the Common Core standards. Our staff will continue to participate in math and language arts training, integrate technology, and provide the best possible learning environment. They will continue to use the time on Wednesdays, when students are not here, to collaborate with colleagues in order to focus on implementation of our curriculum and share best practices, all with the goal to improve instructional pedagogy and student achievement.
I am confident that my experience as a teacher and administrator at the elementary, secondary, and district level has prepared me well to continue to build on the successes Travis USD has long enjoyed. I so look forward to meeting each of you and working with you toward this common goal.To contact:707-437-4604 Ext: 1210 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org
