I am so honored to have been selected by the Board of Education to lead a District that I love. It was truly special to celebrate this decision on Tuesday night with my family and a School Board that works hard every day to make our schools the best they can be.
During the 19 years I have worked in CCUSD, I have met so many amazing parents, teachers, staff and students who believe, as I do, that educating our children is the most important thing any of us will do. I am committed to making sure that we never lose sight of that.
I am blessed to have worked at almost every level of our District, so I come to the superintendent position with a thorough understanding of what it takes to make our schools successful. But at every level, a big part of our success will rely on all of us working together. My door will always be open. I want you to tell me what you think – what you really think. I look forward to hearing your ideas and concerns as we strive to create the best possible learning environment for the children we serve.
We won't always agree and the road to success will not always be easy, but please know that everything I do will be because I want to put our children first.
Thank you all for your incredible support. I can't wait to see what amazing things 2018 will bring to CCUSD!
– Leslie Lockhart, Superintendent
