Superintendent's Letter - Thank you for a fantastic first year!
Dear Tanque Verde Unified School District Parents, Students, Staff and Community Members,
The past year has been a fantastic and memorable one for me personally, in my first year as Superintendent of the Tanque Verde Unified School District. Through collaboration with our staff and community members, we have had an increased focus in many areas including: K-12 curriculum improvements, student growth and academic achievement, school emergency training and safety resources, and school facilities and transportation needs.
Additionally, we have continued our focus on efficiency in school budget planning, and looked for ways to maximize our resources in ways which support the people and programs that make Tanque Verde a district of excellence. With the Governing Board’s support, a Superintendent’s community feasibility committee was formed to study district needs, and make a recommendation regarding possible local funding initiatives. At the same time, educators across the state brought an increased focus on funding for K-12 public schools.
As we near the end of the 2017-18 school year, we want to commend our outstanding students, teachers, staff members and school administrators who have worked hard this year on their many accomplishments. We have highlighted many of them in district and school communications throughout the year, and we were pleased to have several of our ‘good news’ stories shared by our local media organizations.
We would like to thank our School Site Councils, Parent Teacher Groups, Booster Organizations, Tanque Verde Educational Enrichment Foundation, and school volunteers for all your hard work in support of our students, teachers and schools. Your efforts have enriched the educational experiences of our students and made a lasting impact.
Finally, we are fully staffed for next school year, and looking forward to a great 2018-19 school year. Over the summer, we will continue increasing our K-12 curriculum focus on STE(A)M integration, with the TVUSD 2018 STEM Academy for Teachers.
Have a happy, safe summer, and we look forward to seeing everyone back for the first day of school for students on Thursday, August 2nd!
Scott Hagerman, Ed.D.
