Focus is Shifting Toward Students
Welcome to Parlier Unified,
2017/2018 is a new school year and new beginning for Parlier students, staff, and community. We are excited to announce the addition of Mrs. Elizabeth L. Tienda to the Board of Trustees. We thank our Board for their decisive selection of Mrs. Tienda. She will be an asset to Parlier’s future.
Our leadership team worked through this past summer to prepare our schools and support service departments to provide efficient convenient services for our parents and students. The team, which included our school site administrators, department heads, and program coordinators spent time together to intentionally plan this year to be an extension of the new vision, mission, and goals approved last spring.
The outcome of the planning session produced a clear set of core values and metrics upon which we will constantly measure our actions and successes. These values and metrics are embraced in our newly formulated “Guiding Principles”. These Guiding Principles define what we believe, how we will interact, and upon what we will focus this year to ensure Parlier students and staff have the best opportunity for success.
Our Guiding Principles are:
- Trustworthy Communication
- Mutual Respect
Metrics – “Dashboard Indicators of Success”
- Student Achievement Test Scores
- Discipline Referrals
- Recruit and Retain
- K-12 Opportunities
- Parent Engagement
Both Core Values and Dashboard indicators are designed to address the District goals of the following:
- District-wide Systemic Alignment
- Expanding Student Opportunities
- Recruit, Retain, and Develop Parlier staff
We are enthusiastic about this unified approach to serving our students and community, and are confident that Parlier’s students will benefit.
Enjoy the 2017/2018 school year!
Mike Berg, Interim Superintendent
