Superintendent's Message

Tulare City School District families and community members,


On behalf of the Tulare City School District, I would like to welcome you to the 2020/2021 School Year. 


It is an honor to serve as Superintendent in a district and community that I fell in love with 35 years ago when I started my educational career teaching fourth grade at Garden School. I appreciate and value your trust in sending your precious children to our schools each and every day. Our district consists of 15 school sites where approximately 10,000 pre-school through 8th-grade students walk through our gates on a daily basis. In these classrooms sits the future of Tulare, California, United States, and the World. Our Board of Trustees, Administrators, Teachers, and Support Staff believe that it is our privilege and responsibility to provide our students with the tools necessary to be successful academically, emotionally and socially. The following three district priorities reflect this:


  • 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


As a Character Counts!sm district we encourage our students to follow the six pillars of character in and out of our schools: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. We also believe that it takes all stakeholders (parents, guardians, family, teachers, school personnel, and community members) working together to help meet our district’s common expectation of “Raising up caring, creative and confident children.”


Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to a great second half of the school year.
