Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the Gridley Unified School District Board of Trustees and the employees of our district, I want to welcome everyone to the 2017-18 school year. Gridley USD is home to the Gridley High School Bulldogs recognized as a California 2017 “Gold Ribbon School” for excellence in our (CTE) Career Technical Education Pathways.

I am honored to start my twenty-fifth year in education and my second year as the Superintendent of this outstanding school district. Gridley USD is a TK-12 district that supports educational opportunities for over 2,000 students. As the Superintendent, I am committed to the safety and success of every child. I am actively involved and highly visible within our schools and community. I have chosen the community of Gridley as my home for myself and my family. I value the involvement and input of our community members, staff and students. I look forward to the opportunities to collaborate throughout the school year with all stakeholders.

Gridley Unified School District is committed to ensuring that all students are successful. All Gridley schools are staffed with highly qualified, dedicated and caring teachers, classified staff and administrators who work collaboratively to create an outstanding learning environment for our students. Using California's rigorous curriculum content standards and data-based research as their guide, our outstanding teachers are committed to making sure that every child confidently masters California's clearly defined and challenging standards in English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science.

Wilson Elementary and Gridley High School are ranked as 9 out of 10 by the California Similar Schools Ranking. Gridley High School English Language Arts scores for 2017 were the highest for all high schools in Butte County.

To achieve this, GUSD has set four specific goals and allocated resources at the primary, elementary, middle and high school levels.

  1. Provide a consistent articulated instructional program in grades K-12.
  2. All students including English Language Learners (ELL) will become proficient in English Language Arts (ELA) and math.
  3. All students will graduate from high school college and career ready.
  4. Develop a long term facilities master plan to address student needs.

Our school district is comprised of five sites: McKinley Primary (TK-1), Wilson Elementary (2-5), Sycamore Middle School (6-8), Gridley High School (9-12), Alternative Education Complex that includes Esperanza Continuation High School and Independent Study. The district is committed to offering educational programs to meet the diversified educational needs of all students in the community.  The district strives to enrich students by offering a nationally recognized FFA-agricultural program, Career Technical Education (CTE), Advanced Placement (AP) courses, concurrent enrollment courses through Butte College and a full range of extra-curricular sports and activities.
