Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!
As your superintendent, I am happy to build on the successes and achievements that make our district remarkable. As a long-time parent in the district and a former OGUSD Trustee, I am proud of our accomplishments and history of distinction. I am enthusiastic about the district's future and the innovation that will result from building this new learning environment. This year, I am excited to incorporate fresh ideas to further enhance the exceptional experience for our students.
Although our instructional model has moved to a virtual platform, our goals remain the same. Over the next few months, my focus will be on providing Academic Excellence, Strong School Culture, Engagement, and supporting a Balanced Educational Program. Due to the impacts of COVID-19, we have reduced instructional minutes and suspended time on campus but we are still committed to ensuring that all children have a safe and engaging learning environment. I will guide my decisions, inspire innovation, and continue to build on our track record of excellence in this new educational model.
Once again, it is with great pleasure that I embark on this journey with you. I am so happy to be part of this outstanding team that supports and encourages students' curiosity, creativity, and enthusiasm for learning. I look forward to continuing our pattern of excellence and supporting the district's vision.
