A Message from the Superintendent: An Update on The Conejo Way

Dear CVUSD Community:

I am incredibly honored to serve as the Superintendent of the Conejo Valley Unified School District where we do things “The Conejo Way,” to ensure ideal academic outcomes for our students.

In CVUSD we have a right fit for every student. We use collaboration at every level of our organization, from our teachers in our classrooms to our directors and superintendents in our District office. This collaboration and teamwork provides the foundation for the premier educational experiences our students receive.  

Throughout this school year we have had several big changes in leadership, and with those changes have come new perspectives, and fresh ideas for charting course to achieve our districtwide goals.

We are in the process of collaboratively redefining our strategies to more adequately and appropriately meet ALL students’ academic needs. Part of that strategy starts with our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) – where the following new goals are to be put into effect for the 2018-2019 academic year:  

1. Implement targeted actions and services that support positive student outcomes(Student focused)

2. Ensure highly qualified and effective staff are provided with targeted professional development, and have an understanding that all job responsibilities are structured to support positive student outcomes(Internal focused)

3. Provide communication and targeted outreach that informs the community of programs & opportunities that support positive student outcomes.   (Community focused)

4. Enhance the social, emotional and physical well-being for all students through targeted actions that support
positive student outcomes. (Student and school focused)

These adjusted LCAP goals will allow us to effectively carry out actions, measure our successes, and continually adjust our strategies, when needed, to best meet the needs of all of our students.

As we move forward, I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with you on the implementation of these goals, which more detail will be available on during the summer months. There is endless potential for our collaborative efforts as we expand upon what our District does best – providing premier educational experiences for all of our students!
