  • Welcome to a new school year!  On behalf of the more than 250 staff members who provide service and support to your children on a daily basis, we are excited for the coming year.  Our aim is to work cooperatively with our parents, caregivers, and community to make the year memorable.

    The Schools in Central Union strive to bring the District vision of providing a world-class quality education to all of our students so that every child has the opportunity to excel to his or her highest potential. This is achieved through creating meaningful relationships with parents and students, constructing relevant and engaging learning, and providing a safe atmosphere.  Each student will be treated as an individual, given the tools to be a lifelong learner, and taught to function as a member of a group and as a productive member of society.  Our success in this mission will build lifelong, confident learners, who have the tools necessary for success in a changing world.

    Our schools are doing wonderful things in Central Union Elementary School District.  Our students routinely surpass expectations because of the efforts of our teachers and those who support them.   It is often said that ‘the children are our future’, while this is a wonderful motivating quote, I’d like to offer a little different spin on this quote, to demonstrate what we believe at Central Union. The change goes like this … ‘We are the future for our children’.  It is through this concept that the power of education is realized.  With the recognition that our role in a child’s development is paramount, and by embracing the highest commitment of every teacher, secretary, custodian, instructional aide, administrator, and support staff member, we can positively impact the future of your child.  By taking this belief and combining it with the partnership of parents, guardians, family members, and the community, we can build that bright future for our students to make sure that every student is able to excel to their highest potential.

    Central Union School District has the following targets for student success and achievement.

    • Ensuring students are prepared for 21st Century Learning and beyond through fully implementing CA Common Core Standards and the integration of technology throughout instruction
    • Providing all students with equitable access to core program activities, highly qualified staff, and having safe and well-maintained schools
    • Meeting the needs of English Learners to acquire English Proficiency and academic proficiency
    • Addressing the social-emotional/behavioral needs of our students leading to improved attendance, and reduced incidents of suspensions and bullying

    Education is no doubt one of the most important aspects of a child’s life, and we are so honored to play a role in your child’s development.  If you have a concern please contact your child’s teacher or school administrator.  With better listening and more understanding we can meet in the middle and walk this important journey together.

    Sincerely,
  • Tom Addington
