    TUSD Organizational Goals

    Goal:  Increase the academic achievement of all students through the utilization of evidence-based instructional strategies, a challenging and engaging standards-aligned curriculum, and assessments that inform the teaching and learning.   

    Objectives and Evaluation Metrics:

    • Provide all teachers and administrators professional development to support the enhancement of Professional Learning Communities (PLC), the TUSD mathematics program, and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) implementation.
    • Utilize the Smarter Balanced interim assessments for grades 3-11 as benchmark assessments that provide educators with timely feedback on students’ achievement levels relative to their grade level.

    • Increase the District’s counseling staff to provide more opportunities for students to engage in small group counseling sessions, social and emotional learning, as well as college/career guidance.
    • Increase the District’s Average Daily Attendance (ADA) rate to 96.5% by providing clearly defined tiered reengagement strategies and support for all students on short-term independent study assignments due to quarantines.
    • Provide expanded learning opportunities for all students through partnerships with outside organizations, credit recovery programs, and more structured tutoring services that take place before and/or after school.

    • Maintain a surplus position in the 2021-22 unrestricted General Fund, and
    • identify necessary reductions in years 2022-23 and beyond to maintain a positive budget certification with the County Office of Education and the State of California.  

    Goal:  Ensure safe and healthy conditions through consistent adherence to health/safety/sanitation guidelines as established in the 2021-22 TUSD Opening Plan, and in accordance with regulatory guidance by federal, state, and county agencies.  Additionally, complete scheduled deferred maintenance and facilities modernization projects in an effort to maintain and improve facilities.  Further, with a return to full in-person daily school, renew focus on improving and strengthening the collective staff capacity in emergency preparedness.

    The students of Templeton Unified are fortunate to have a dedicated group known as the Templeton Education Foundation (T.E.F.) working to support our schools.  This organization raised more than $65,000 this past year.  That doesn't happen without the involvement of community members like yourself.  If you would like more information on the Templeton Education Foundation or if you are interested in volunteering your time to this worthwhile cause, please join in their efforts.  Questions may be directed to TEF using the link below.  More information is also available on their website
