A Message from the Superintendent

The Chico Unified School District community provides outstanding learning opportunities for our students. To ensure the success of our students and to further enhance our District, CUSD has embraced the following goals for the 2014-2015 school year:

  • To provide all students with the opportunity to attain increasing levels of individual achievement that prepare them for success in the global economy

  • To provide a safe, supportive, healthy, and engaging environment for learning to take place
  • To build effective partnerships with our constituents
  • To monitor and adjust our district budget to ensure solvency, local control of our schools, and optimum benefit from the Local Control Funding Formula

The mission of the Chico Unified School District, a partnership of students, staff, families and community, is to ensure all students achieve high levels of academic and personal success, contribute to the community and confidently compete in a changing global society by engaging in quality educational programs that address diverse student needs and promote learning throughout life.

I am proud of our excellent schools, teachers, and staff who serve the 12,000 students from Chico and the surrounding areas. I invite you to be a partner in our schools and welcome your participation in our vibrant school community. Please feel free to contact me at (530) 891-3000 x149 or by email.
