Superintendent's Message

Dear Parents and Community Members,

Welcome Back!

On behalf of our Board of Education, we would like to welcome all of our students and families back from what we sincerely hope was a relaxing and fulfilling summer holiday with family and friends.

We wanted to share with our community that our first day of school with students on August 19, 2015, was a huge success.  Our division Assistant Superintendents and District Office Directors including the Co- Interim Superintendents shared the responsibility of branching out and supporting each school site in the District.  The reports back were all positive and encouraging.  The first day back with students and parents always remains as a very special day filled with excitement.

Paramount Unified School District has existed since 1953 with the mission to prepare our students for a bright and successful future.  The opening of a new school year reminds us all that our most valuable asset is not the capital investment in our schools and buildings.  A school district is not great because of bricks and mortar, or libraries and laboratories or school rankings. A school district is great because of its people, its faculty, students, staff, community, and alumni and in the way in which those people work together for a “common cause”, the District’s Mission and Vision.

We are very proud of the many accomplishments and success that we have witnessed in PUSD.  We are confident that we will continue our conditions for renewal.  We are looking forward to a great 2015-2016 school year.
