Superintendent's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you back to the 2018-2019 school year. As a school district, we believe that education is the key to a successful future. To meet the challenge of preparing our students for the future, we must stay focused on our highest priority: ensuring that improved academic achievement becomes a reality for EVERY Cucamonga School District student. I continue to believe this can be best accomplished in a culture of respect and support, with the highest of expectations for each one of our students, each other and ourselves.

Challenges are only met when everyone commits to work together in a cooperative and dedicated manner. In the Cucamonga School District, to meet the challenge, rigorous content standards are used to guide instruction in all academic areas. Resources are provided to purchase standards based textbooks and instructional materials for all students. Schools are staffed with high quality teachers and support staff who participate in ongoing professional development to keep their instructional techniques current. Our schools are expected to maintain an environment in which students, parents and staff feel safe, valued, and welcome.

The success of our students is built on the strong partnership the Cucamonga School District enjoys between home and school. The ongoing support and partnership provided by you, Cucamonga School District parents, continues to be an essential part of the academic progress your children and their school can and will make. I encourage you to do four things on a daily basis that will both assist your children and be of support to their Cucamonga School District teachers and staff:

  1. Importance of School-Respect for Teachers
  2. Please ensure that your children know how important their education is now, and for their future. Discuss with them your high level of support and appreciation for their teachers and the work they do each day, as they attempt to provide an exemplary educational program in each classroom.
  3. Homework
  4. Please ensure that your children fully complete their homework every evening and are prepared for school each morning.
  5. Believe in Your Children
  6. Please ensure that your children know in their mind and heart your belief in who they are, what they can do, and what they can be.
  7. Student Daily Attendance
  8. Please ensure that your children come to school ready to learn each day. Studies show that there is a direct correlation between good school attendance and student achievement. Additionally, schools only receive state funding for students who actually attend school. Since 1998, school districts no longer receive funding from the State of California for pupils who are absent from school. Please continually reinforce the importance of good school attendance and make every effort to send your children to school on a regular basis.

You can be pleased with the academic programs your children are receiving from teachers and support staff at each school throughout the school district. Once again, thank you for your ongoing support. Let’s continue to work together to ensure that your children are successful in a rigorous educational program that will help prepare them well for their future. 

On behalf of the Cucamonga School District Governing Board and myself, I wish for each of our students and staff a highly successful and very productive 2018-2019 school year.
