A Message from the Superintendent

Striving For Our Sierra Best

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the Sierra Unified School District Board of Trustees and the employees of our district, I want to welcome everyone to the 2021-22 school year. Sierra USD is a TK-12 district that supports educational opportunities for over 1,200 students.

As the Superintendent, I am honored to start my twenty-ninth year in education including six years as a Superintendent and my first year for this outstanding school district. I am committed to the safety and academic success of every child that we serve. I am actively involved and highly visible within our schools and community. I value the involvement and input of our community members, parents, staff, and students. I look forward to the opportunities to collaborate throughout the school year with all stakeholders.

Sierra USD is committed to ensuring that all students are successful. All Sierra schools are staffed with highly qualified, dedicated, and caring teachers, classified staff, and administrators who work collaboratively to create an outstanding learning environment for our students. Using California’s rigorous curriculum content standards and data-based research as their guide, our outstanding teachers are committed to making sure that every child confidently masters California’s clearly defined and challenging standards in English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science.

To achieve this, the SUSD Board of Trustees has set five specific goals and allocated resources at the elementary, junior high, and high school levels.

  1. Districtwide Facilities Upgrades
  2. Long Range Planning Vision/Continuity
  3. Top Tier Ag/CTE/ROP Programs
  4. College and Career
    • Measurement
    • Destination and Skills
    • Internal College and Career Index
  5. Community Engagement and Partners
    • Tell the Story
    • Fidelity Using Branding

Our school district is comprised of Foothill Elementary (TK-6), Sierra Junior High (7-8), Sierra High School (9-12), Sierra Alternative High School (10-12), and Sierra @ Home (K-12). The district is committed to offering educational programs to meet the diversified educational needs of all students in our community.
