  • SUPERINTENDENT'S MESSAGE

    Dear Parents, Guardians, and Grandparents, It has been a pleasure working with your children during our first months of instruction. All of our students are precious, and we appreciate your continued support. I hope you all enjoy your well-deserved fall break. I look forward to seeing all of the students’ bright faces upon their return to our schools. Our educational team is working hand in hand with the staff at the schools to make sure we have the resources and instructional programs in place at each site that will address every child’s individual needs. Please reach out to your site principal or the district office if you have any questions, or if you would like to support our outreach efforts and fundraising for those in need in our educational community. Again, thank you for the opportunity to serve your child/children at DUSD. Rosalina Rivera

    Dear Staff, Happy New Year and Welcome back! I hope you had a joyful and relaxing break. As we are prepared to warmly welcome back our students on Tuesday, I wanted to share a few important reminders to help maintain a safe and healthy environment and keep our schools open and thriving. We will all need to do our part to stop the spread of the virus-now more than ever. DUSD has put multiple measures in place to keep students and staff healthy and safe; however, we believe that the safest place for students is at home at this time, and we are highly recommending that parents consider remote learning as an option. Because we are not authorized at this time to transition to virtual instruction, our schools will continue to remain open. Parents who are interested in enrolling their child in the DUSD Remote Learning Academy should contact their school site to begin the registration process. Parents will be encouraged to test their child by Monday, January 10th. The district will be providing KN95 masks for all staff members. All staff will be COVID-19 tested upon their return to work on Monday January 10th. Please notify your supervisor if you are having any COVID-19 symptoms.

  • Superintendent's Message - Fall 2021

    Dear Staff, I want to welcome everyone to the 2021-22 school year! It is going to be an amazing, challenging, and exciting year. At DUSD, we have learned that there is no challenge too great if we work together, and if we value everyone's role and contributions. As we start the school year, we need to place the highest priority on creating a safe, nurturing, and welcoming environment for our students, our parents/guardians, and for each other. Every staff member has an important part to play in accomplishing this goal. We have all been through an unprecedented experience, and the effects are still with us. We need to take care of our students, and we need to take care of each other. We are not going back to normal; we are going forward to a new reality, where our students will need us more than ever. Be flexible, be ready to adjust, be ready to make changes, be ready to lead the way ... just as you have for the past 16 months. We've got this! Thank you, and have a great school year! Rosalina Rivera

  • Superintendent's Message August - December

    Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! The start of a new school year is always exciting, and that is especially true this year. We are starting with distance learning, and so for now we will not see our students walking to school, getting dropped off, or exiting from a school bus. Instead, our students are connecting with our teachers and by our support staff. At all of our schools, grade levels, and programs, classes are organized, students are engaged, and the school year is underway. The 2020-21 school year begins under extraordinary circumstances. At DUSD, the essential work of public education continues, and we embrace the challenges. Even as we begin the school year with distance learning, and our students are not yet with us on campus, I want each one of our students to feel special. I want every student to feel special as a direct result of how we engage with them on a day-to-day basis. I want every staff member to be highly proactive in identifying and meeting the needs of our students. Our deepest calling as educators is to help every student that we come into contact with each day to understand the enormous value and potential within them.

  • Superintendent's Message - June

    There have been many difficult issues that have arrived with great intensity in the past few months. We have continued to live with COVID 19, and we have been powerfully reminded that civil rights remains an ongoing challenge for our country. I am confident that DUSD as an institution is committed to respecting each and every person regardless of background or circumstances, and I am confident that DUSD will continue to be one family that is united in our commitment to equal treatment and mutual understanding. Right now, at this time in our history, there is an undeniable need to seek out the voices of persons who differ from us in terms of race, gender, religion, orientation, or political views. We have been quarantined for reasons of public health, but we cannot quarantine our minds from the voices of the marginalized, the victims of systemic injustice, the people who hold political views that are different from ours. We need to engage with these voices on the most fundamental level, so that this moment will be truly transformative, and will truly move us - all of us - toward a more just and equitable nation.

  • Retirement Celebration

    Dear staff, Many of our colleagues and friends have made the decision to retire this year. Our retirees have given many years of dedicated service to the children and families of the Delano community. Each retiree, in his or her own way, has furthered the cause of public education and helped to shape the character of our District, and therefore each retiree will always be part of our DUSD family. Please be reminded that we will have a live stream drive-thru at the District on Wednesday, June 10, from 10 am to 11 am., to honor and recognize our retirees. There will be a link on the District website that will allow staff and family members to participate in the live stream. A list of retirees - who have notified us as of this date - is provided below. Also, please view the presentation attached. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Delano community, thank you, DUSD retirees, for your distinguished careers and for allowing us to work alongside you in the field of education. We wish you the very best in all your future endeavors. With gratitude, Rosalina Rivera

  • Superintendent's Message January - February

    Welcome back, District family, and Happy New Year! It’s great to be able to enjoy some vacation time, but it is also great to come back and reconnect with colleagues and with our amazing students. We are beginning a new calendar year, but we are also in the middle of a school year, with many days of instruction and many events and activities to look forward to. As a District, I believe that we are fundamentally strong, and we are seeing many programs, departments, grade levels, and school sites make the jump to the next level of performance and achievement. As a recent example, this is a good place to once again congratulate Morningside School for officially receiving the California Distinguished School Award!

  • Superintendent's Message - March

    Welcome Back, Everyone! Our school year is off to a great start as we work together as one team with one vision. I wanted to reiterate my remarks from our district breakfast last week. During a visit to the NASA space center in 1962, President John F. Kennedy noticed a janitor carrying a broom. He stopped the tour and walked over to the man and said, “Hi, I’m Jack Kennedy. What are you doing?” The man responded, “Well, Mr. President, I’m helping put a man on the moon.” He was right: although it may have appeared to some that this man was just cleaning the building, the president knew that he played a part of a tremendous endeavor; nonetheless, he was helping to make history.

  • Superintendent's Message October - November

    The California Department of Education has released the official CAASPP scores for the 2018-19 school year, and I wanted to congratulate our entire District family on a job well done! With the support and guidance of our teachers and staff, our students’ performance exceeded the Kern County averages in both English-Language Arts and Mathematics. The academic progress of our District is unmistakable; we are succeeding in our most important mission; and we are well-positioned to continue to achieve gains in the coming years. As we move forward, we will continue to show that by working together as one team with one vision, we really can achieve the extraordinary! Rosalina Rivera

  • SCHOOL ATTENDANCE MATTERS

    September is our annual "Attendance Awareness Month." I am very pleased to report that our attendance rates remain at an all-time high! Our District-wide attendance rate remains close to 98%; this is much higher than the county or state average. There are no unimportant school days. Every day counts! Every staff member makes a difference in creating a positive school culture. Our students love to be in school, because it is a safe, happy, and exciting place to be. Our parents want their children to be in school, because they know the value of education and they know that their neighborhood school cares about their children.
