A Message from the Superintendent

My name is Kelly Staley, Superintendent of Chico Unified School District and I would like to welcome you to CUSD!
Chico Unified promotes a school culture of high expectations, mutual respect, and positive interpersonal relationships. We serve approximately 12,000 students from Chico and the surrounding areas at 21 schools. Our schools, staff, and students continually receive local, state and national recognition.

It is the mission of the Chico Unified School District to provide “a partnership of students, staff, families and community to ensure all students achieve high levels of academic and personal success, contribute to their 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.”

CUSD has adopted and developed programs to address children's nutrition, physical and psychological health, bullying, and learning challenges. Music and arts programs are part of the instructional program and a broad program of interscholastic athletics contributes to the development of our students.

The Chico community embraces education at all levels and is extremely supportive of our K-12 students and our schools. Thanks to generous community support of local bonds, CUSD facilities are being upgraded and improved physically, technologically, and aesthetically, while keeping sustainability in the forefront.

I am proud of our excellent schools, teachers, staff and the wide variety of programs offered. I invite you to be a partner in our schools and welcome your participation in our school community. Please feel free to contact me at (530) 891-3000 x149 or by email.
