Superintendent's Message









Community of Oakdale,


I hope this note finds your summer going well. I would like to take this opportunity to state

that I sincerely consider it a privilege to serve you as Superintendent. The 2015-16 school

year was certainly a productive one for staff and students. A list of last year’s

accomplishments is posted on the district website for your review. We have all worked very

hard to provide our students with the educational and career opportunities they need to

successfully move forward with the next stage of their lives, regardless of the pursuit. The

list of accomplishments is certainly a testament to this fact.


The last two years have created significant changes in our system of education. College

and Career Readiness Skills (Common Core) implementation, increased technology, and

textbook adoptions have not only affected our system of delivery but have also required

our teaching staff to spend a sizeable amount of time outside the classroom. In the

upcoming school year, our intent is to greatly reduce the time spent out of the classroom.

Staff Development is still a vital component of our desire for continual improvement, but

we are going to be more strategic in staff development that requires time out of the



The 2016-17 school year will be a year in which we focus on a return to the fundamentals

of dynamic instruction. We will be concentrating the efforts of everyone in the District on

maximizing our overall effectiveness as an instructional institution. In the upcoming year,

we want to find ways for all of us to do our jobs better and identify concrete “next” steps

for overall improvement. Certificated Staff will be focusing on IS4 and creating instruction

that increases student engagement and lesson relevance. Classified Staff will be helping

to create learning environments that maximize our instructional efforts inside the

classroom. Our Administrative Staff will also have significant work to do as I hold them

and myself accountable to a “Commitment of Leadership.” This past year our

administrative team identified twelve traits essential to effective leadership. We will be

working to fully implement these traits to become more effective leaders. If you are

curious, the “OJUSD Leadership Commitment” has been posted on our website.


On many occasions, I have stated my core belief that organizations either get better or

worse every day! To that end, I remain committed to the OJUSD vision statement of

“Teach, Learn, Every Day, No Excuses!” It is my goal to see us continue our efforts in

creating an organizational culture that allows us all to hone our specific crafts. If you

should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or approach

me as I see you on our sites.
