Message from the Superintendent

August 2016

MPUSD Families,

It’s an exciting time in the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District. As I enter my third school year as your superintendent, I am eager to welcome new and returning students, and their families back from a restful summer break.

The MPUSD team has worked extremely hard these past two years to build a strong foundation that focuses on effective first instruction in every classroom and enhances positive school culture across the district. We have in place systems of support – both academic and social emotional – that will allow us to dramatically improve student learning and achievement this year and in years to come.

This summer, we continued to develop the leadership capacity at all levels. Teachers and staff participated in various professional development opportunities throughout June and July, including Advanced Placement Summer Institute, Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) training, Academic Language Proficiency with world-renown educator Kate Kinsella, and our Back-to-School Kickoff. Moreover, we made progress on our Reimagining Secondary Teaching and Learning Initiative, including staff training related to International Baccalaureate, Project-Based Learning, NewTech Network and Professional Learning Communities.

To learn more about MPUSD’s vision and planning, please visit our website and refer to our Strategic Vision and Local Control Accountability Plan at a Glance. These guiding documents, which may also be found in your school office, frame the work we do to engage students in deeper learning and prepare them to pursue college and career.

The MPUSD team is energized, enthusiastic and ready to engage your student in deep and meaningful learning this school year. Our committed team of teachers, staff and administrators have an incredible year planned. My Cabinet team and I will be visiting school sites regularly throughout the school year. We look forward to making a personal connection with you and your student, and partnering with families and the community to ensure every school and every student succeeds.

If I can be of help to your family during the school year, please don’t hesitate to contact my office at 831.645.1200 or email to superintendententsmemo@mpusd.net.

Respectfully yours,

PK Diffenbaugh
