Superintendent's Message

Dear Staff, 


Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!


This summer our classified staff, managers, and administrative team have been working hard to make sure that we are safe and ready for a positive and productive year. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of the employees who worked many long, hard hours throughout the summer months, and to all the energetic individuals who donated their time and talents to help beautify our district departments and schools.  I also want to congratulate our talented classified, certificated, and administrative staff members who will be transitioning to new roles in our District! Congrats! 


This year, our journey as a district family begins with a new initiative: Promise 180!  I would like for everyone to join us and to pledge their commitment to ensuring that every student is in school and pledge to do our very best to support, educate, and engage with every student on a daily basis.  By endorsing and committing to Pledge 180, we are also communicating to each child how much we care about their education.  


As a DUSD family member, we care about you and commit to make sure you have the best working conditions possible! Our journey this year is to create a sustainable environment of support and to become growth partners.  Thank you again for being part of our DUSD team.


And now, let the journey begin….


Have a splendid day!
