Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students of Poway Unified School District:
I look forward to welcoming back our students and their families for the start of another school year. I would like to express what a privilege it is to lead such a strong district dedicated to all students learning and succeeding.
On that note, I would like to share a new video about PUSD. I think it really sums up what #TeamPUSD is all about. I hope you feel a sense of great pride when watching and sharing it.
And I would like to assure you, while we’ve experienced some changes in District leadership, nothing has changed our focus and mission of college and career readiness for our kids.
Teachers, administrators, and staff of PUSD have been busy with preparations for an excellent year filled with a wide variety of learning experiences and opportunities for students. Over the summer, we have been updating and improving facilities, working in collaborative teams to develop engaging and relevant curriculum, and increasing technology access as well as staffing on our sites.
As the new school year begins, please remember that the most meaningful factor in assisting students’ success is our ongoing partnerships with parents and guardians. In order to help your children attain their goals, we need your continued partnership, whether through attending conferences and school events, volunteering at your child’s school, or communicating your ideas and concerns.
Remember to stay informed about your child’s school and the Poway Unified School District through our website (www.powayusd.com), our new smartphone app, available both through Apple’s app store and Google Play, and by following us on social media. .
As your Acting Superintendent, I, along with PUSD’s teachers, administrators, and staff will remain student focused. We are here to serve you, and please do not hesitate to reach out for help when it comes to ensuring your child’s success.
Best wishes for a successful school year to you and your family.
Dr. Mel Robertson, Acting Superintendent
