TUSD Vision

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.

T.E.F.

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

Happy new year!

Evidence demonstrates that Templeton Unified has made a successful transition to California’s new content standards and that our organization is as effective as ever. 

 

Templeton led all school districts in the county in Language Arts performance as measured by data from the inaugural Smarter Balanced Assessment.  61% of students met or exceeded the standards.  This is an impressive result considering that the new standards and the assessment are significantly more rigorous than previous versions.  Despite these outstanding results, our teachers are committed to continuous improvement.  We have selected the Listening Claim as an area of focus for this year.  The skills covered by these standards have never been formally assessed in a standardized manner.  I look forward to studying the effect of the instructional changes made to reflect this new area of emphasis.

 

Results in math were positive as well.  43% percent of students met or exceeded standards which placed us as the second highest performing district in the county.  This was an overall improvement as we typically place third or fourth in the county in mathematics performance.  However, our goal is to become the county leader in math performance by 2020.  We adopted new math textbooks and are providing additional training for teachers in order to provide the best instruction possible.

 

Students in Templeton enjoy numerous enrichment opportunities in addition to outstanding instruction in English, math, science and social science.  We provide formal art and music instruction at both elementary schools.  Vineyard Elementary provides instrumental music and drama after school in order to further enhance our fine arts program.  Older students may pursue their passion in the arts through elective courses that are offered at the middle and high school.

 

A recent staff survey demonstrates that morale is high and that 94% of staff are pleased or very pleased with our organizational progress.  Our bargaining units have enjoyed a three year contract allowing our Human Resources Department to focus on employee development and training.  Nearly 75% of teachers attended up to 14 optional staff development days over the course of the last three years, which is one of the primary reasons that we were able to make such a successful transition to the new standards.

 

Finally, school construction and modernization continues in earnest.  Please view the video which our MOT Director, Chris Bonin, developed to highlight recent projects.  The community will begin to see construction at Templeton High School as early as spring of 2016.  If you would like additional information about school construction or the status of Measure H-12, please view the Frequently Asked Questions document under the Measure H-12 drop-down menu on this Website.

 

Sincerely,

Joe Koski, Ed.D

Superintendent

Interdistrict Transfers

If you are considering applying for a transfer for the 2016/17 school year, please obtain a release from your district of residence FIRST.  Templeton will provide the IDT request form to families who have already obtained a release beginning March 1.  As a release is required prior to completing the Templeton request form, we do not make the form available on our web site.  Please keep in mind that requests received between March 1 and May 15 are reviewed for possible early approval.  Requests received after May 15 are held pending confirmation we can accommodate the student's needs.  It is possible we may not be able to confirm a student is approved until the start of school in August. 

 

For further information, please contact Cheryl Parks at (805) 434-5805.
