A Message from our Superintendent

As I addressed our outgoing senior class on graduation night, I found myself looking back-and-forth between the faces of our graduates and their younger siblings in the audience with a mix of nostalgia and disbelief. In the blink of an eye—our elementary students became middle schoolers, only to finish high school right in front of our eyes.

I think about this through line each day I come to work.

I returned to the District that raised me because of a deep sense of responsibility and a need to give back. I’m guessing many of you flipping through this magazine are graduates of the District or have a connection to one of our nearly 2,000 employees. I’m even willing to guess that many of you are serving our District as teachers, bus drivers, librarians, cafeteria staff, or as volunteers. Like Raytheon, Intuit, Pima County and other large employers in our backyard, Sunnyside is investing in its people, because together we create economic prosperity.

We’ve redesigned the high school experience through our College and Career Academies; we’ve stayed the course, thanks to a Coherence Framework focused on enhancing the relationship between the student and teacher in the presence of the work; we’ve launched a Graduate Profile to drive our strategic plan; and we’ve invested millions in Bond Projects, thanks to taxpayers who trust us as good stewards of public dollars.

As I enter my fifth year as Superintendent it’s become clearer to me that our District plays a critical role in creating better communities. So as you learn about our work over the last year, I invite you to imagine Sunnyside as a destination District where together we invest in our students and our people.
