Superintendent’s Message

Dear CCUSD Community,

With the final days of classes, graduations and promotion ceremonies nearly upon us, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the vital role you play in making CCUSD such a special place to work and learn.

My opening statement in the Fall Edition of Culver Currents in Print was “On the Road to Awesome in 2013-2014.” For many reasons, I believe that this truly has been an awesome year:

  • A strengthened Partnership with our classified, certificated and administrative teammates
  • Incredible dedication, effort and focused training on preparing for a successful implementation of Common Core
  • Extensive professional development in our pursuit of developing highly effective collaborative teams at all CCUSD schools
  • Systemic communication, engagement and cooperation in developing an evidence-based LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan)
  • A strategic and inclusive process that resulted in our comprehensive Master Facility Plan
  • Millions of dollars invested to address our many capital/facility needs: safety needs at all schools; a new athletic stadium, solar panels, feasibility work and plans for Robert Frost, hydration stations, new marquee and lockers at CCHS, and plans for many more projects this upcoming summer
  • Enhanced and coordinated Emergency Preparedness, training and drills
  • Modeling the Power of US in CCSUD: Creating, promoting and putting into action our district and community “creed:” Success for All Takes US All!
  • An expansion of partnerships to become even more purposeful in our efforts to support and serve the needs of the whole child.
  • The collaborative creation of The Culver City Compact: CCUSD, City Officials, the Chamber of Commerce and other key stakeholders crafted a public declaration of a shared vision and commitment for a highly collaborative, responsive and innovative educational system that ensures every child succeeds before, during and after high school. (Click here to see the Culver City Compact)

These are only a few examples of an impressive list of accomplishments made possible by a district and community working together to ensure all children are safe, healthy, challenged, connected, cared for and hopeful.

I believe our new Culver City Compact is a product, vision and a commitment that best reflects why the students of CCUSD thrive in school, in our community and as they pursue life and learning upon graduation. The term “compact” alone affirms that student learning in Culver City is more than a want, a wish or a goal. It is a promise. It is more than a statement of a shared vision; it is a public declaration that student success is our shared responsibility.

On behalf of the CCUSD family, we thank you for joining us on the Road to Awesome!
