This school year promises to be both exciting and challenging. A sound financial foundation for the District remains of highest concern and, staff continues to focus on the mission of making sure our students receive the best education possible. Teachers, support staff and administrators all take great pride in working in a school system and community that produces such outstanding learners. The Davis community expects excellence from its schools, and every year the exceptional people and programs that make up DJUSD deliver. This is often reflected in our schools’ API scores and the individual recognition our students receive.
We want all DJUSD students to be successful and will continue to use assessment data to identify those in need of intervention and provide the services they require. We will focus on fostering caring relationships amongst staff, students and their families, and better aligning curricula and assessment will help us to do this. Despite economic uncertainty, positive attitudes, beliefs, and a relentless passion to help students be successful will carry the day for the school district and the community.
To be successful in a global society after high school, all children need extensive knowledge and skills in core areas of literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, foreign language and career technology. Students must also be exposed to a myriad of opportunities that explore the arts, health and wellness, athletics, extra-curricular activities, and community service projects. These are the components of an excellent education and develop life-long thinkers and productive citizens for our future.
