Welcome to the Gridley Unified School District, 

There are several reasons why GUSD is an amazing district and it starts with our families and this community. Our hard working staff is dedicated to meeting every student’s academic, social, and emotional needs to be successful citizens both in and out of our classrooms. Our School Board and district leadership are committed to providing each site with the necessary tools and resources to ensure success and growth among our learners. 
As I stated, one of our greatest strengths is the sense of community that radiates from each of our schools and throughout this district. Parents and community members give to our schools generously with their time, talent and resources. This is why I have been proud to be part of this educational community for the past four years and I am honored and humbled to have the opportunity to lead this district into the future. 
My goal as Superintendent of Schools is to ensure that we continue to provide the very best education for all children entrusted to our care. I believe that if we remain steadfast to our shared vision and core beliefs about what matters most for our students they will develop the skills necessary for life-long independence, prosperity and personal achievement. 

We are committed to reviewing and adapting our strategic plans as necessary to reflect our accomplishments and to meet the needs of our community. I welcome the thoughts, ideas and suggestions you have about improving our school district, as without a productive collaborative relationship we can not reach our full potential.  We will continue to prepare, inspire, and engage all students in Gridley. We have excellent schools, and we will continue to work together to make it even better.
