Superintendent's Message

"Raising Up a Community of Caring, Creative, and Confident Children"

Welcome to Tulare City School District where the “common expectation” is to raise up caring, creative, and confident children. 

Our district serves over 10,000 preschool through 8th grade students enrolled at 15 individual school sites. The TCSD board of trustees, administrators, teachers, and support staff believe it is our responsibility and our privilege to serve our community’s children and their parents. The following three district priorities reflect this belief:

♥    Safe, secure, and healthy learning and work environment for all.
♥    Teaching is relevant, purposeful, and yields the deepest levels of learning for all.
♥    Connecting to the local and global communities.

Tulare City School District is fortunate to have parents and community members that are eager to partner with our schools and support our efforts to implement these priorities and support the “common expectation.”

As a Character Counts! district TCSD encourages and supports our students to make a positive contribution to their local and global communities. We also understand that it will require all stakeholders to work together in order to “raise up caring, creative, and confident children.”
