Note from the Superintendent’s Desk
Dear Tanque Verde Community,
I am very pleased to be the new Superintendent of the Tanque Verde Unified School District (TVUSD). A Tucsonan for the last 17 years, I am very familiar with the excellent reputation of the Tanque Verde schools, and I look forward to the challenges ahead as I work to continue that tradition.
During my first 100 days, I began meeting individually with members of the TVUSD Governing Board, school principals, teachers, department managers and community members, in order to learn more about the rich history, community values, academic strengths, and challenges of the district. I believe that it is through careful listening to the voices of parents, students and teachers that we can work collaboratively toward innovative and creative schools where all students learn and achieve.
While we will strive to maintain the Tanque Verde District’s tradition of excellence, we must also understand, and prepare our students for, the changing expectations and skills they will need to adapt to the rapidly shifting, technologically complex world in which they will live and work.
Keeping the ideas shared with me during these first months, as well as the future needs of students in mind, I have developed a framework of goals and action steps that will continue to move the district forward and build upon our standing in the current competitive school environment.
Working together with our governing board, school staff, parents and community members, I am addressing the following priorities:
Developing a vibrant and deeper framework for STEM education and the Arts.
Engaging our community to revisit the vision of Tanque Verde USD.
Working purposefully to retain and support our excellent staff.
Establishing new board goals and specific actions to be accomplished this year.
I look forward to dedicating this school year to the continued advancement of the Tanque Verde schools, and I look forward to meeting many of you as we work together on these issues of importance to our school community.
Thank you for your continued support.
All my best,
Dr. Scott Hagerman
