TUSD exists to engage and work collaboratively with students, families and the community to create systems which develop character, academics, global awareness as well as economic, artistic, civic, digital and health literacy allowing our youth numerous options in the pursuit of an ethical and successful life in the 21st Century. With relationships as our foundation, we provide timely and caring feedback which guides progress and ensures success.
TUSD is an educational system where stakeholders are empowered, respected and adequately resourced to deliver broad-based and effective pathways from which student and employee outcomes are self-determined as a result of individual talents, interests and choices. The fundamental values of integrity, perseverance, excellence and local control are apparent in all interactions between staff members and during interactions with the public.

The students of Templeton Unified are fortunate to have a dedicated group known as the Templeton Education Foundation (T.E.F.) working to support our schools. This organization raised more than $65,000 this past year. That doesn't happen without the involvement of community members like yourself. If you would like more information on the Templeton Education Foundation or if you are interested in volunteering your time to this worthwhile cause, please join in their efforts. Questions may be directed to Brian Weiss using the link below. More information is also available on their website.
LCAP Committee Members Sought
Templeton's Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a three-year plan describing educational programs and the basic services we provide to students. The LCAP is developed collaboratively with representatives from stakeholders across our system. Students, staff, faculty, parents and community members review data from eight priority areas established by the California Department of Education during several committee meetings between October and March each year. Following data and budget review, committee members make recommendations regarding actions and services which would enhance outcomes for students. The final LCAP is presented and approved by the Board of Trustees no later than June 30. The current LCAP can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
At this time, the district is seeking interested parents and community members to join the current LCAP committee. The remaining meetings for the year are scheduled from 3:30 - 5:00 on January 31, February 28, and March 21. Please contact Cheryl Parks at 434-5805 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving on this important committee.
Budget Advisory Committee Members Sought
TUSD is seeking two parents or community members to join the Budget Advisory Committee (BAC). The committee is being convened specifically to address projected budget deficits in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 schools years due to a recent trend of declining enrollment.
The committee will meet on January 11, January 25, January 30, and February 8 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The committee's work will culminate with recommendations to be presented to the TUSD Governing Board in late February.
Please contact Aaron Asplund, Chief Business Official, at email@example.com or (805) 434-5810 if interested.
School Board Sworn in and Appoints New Member
Shirley Sigmund, Phil Keohen, Kevin Hamers, and Jordan Cunningham were recognized for their service to the District and, more importantly, the students of the TUSD at the Board's December 8 meeting. Mrs. Sigmund, Mr. Keohen, Mr. Hamers and Mr. Cunningham took their responsibilities seriously and served this District with distinction. Following their recognition, Ted Dubost, Brenda Gray, and Dr. Nelson Yamagata were sworn after being elected by the voters in November.
The first order of business for the new board was to appoint a fifth member to replace Jordan Cunningham who resigned following his election to the State Assembly. Jan Nimick was selected from a pool of four well qualified applicants and was immediately sworn in. We're pleased to have the following members serve the District:
Dr. Nelson Yamagata, President
Katrina Merson, Clerk
Ted Dubost, Member
