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.

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.  Meetings are held the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Rabobank on Las Tablas.  Questions may be directed to Heidi Ferrari using the link below.  More information is also available on their website

Summer Meal Program

Summer Food Service Program/LOVIN’ LUNCHBOX

Good nutrition is essential for effective learning every day, all year long. Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition. Children who aren’t hungry learn better, act better, and feel better. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is federally funded by the USDA and is targeted at ending childhood hunger. SFSP incorporates an after school snack program during the school year and a meals program during the summer break, Lovin' Lunchbox. Together, they help ensure children get the nutrition they need throughout the day to learn, play, and grow.

How it works

Our after school snack program provides free nutritious snacks to low-income children through a variety of community locations where children already congregate—such as after school programs provided by Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, or public schools. In addition to providing snacks to children, all sites offer a safe place, where under the supervision of trustworthy staff a child can get involved in educational, recreational and social activities.

During the school year 16,000 of the children in our county participate in the Free or Reduced Priced School Meals program at school, which provides them with a meal during the day. Unfortunately, during the summer break these children no longer have access to these meals. Lovin' Lunchbox provides nutritious meals (like breakfast or lunch) and a snack to children and teenagers age 18 years and younger struggling with hunger at approved sites during the summer months when school is not in session.

2015 Information

  • County wide program begins June 15th, 2015
  • Meals are available at designated sites throughout the SLO County
  • Meals are FREE to children and teens ages 18 and younger
  • Food served follows or exceeds USDA nutrition guidelines
  • No paperwork or applications are required. All children ages 0-18 can receive a free meal at advertised sites.

Interdistrict Transfers

The pros and cons of interdistrict transfers have been discussed for years.  Families are often seeking to transfer their child from their district of residence into Templeton for a variety of reasons.  Transfers are generally approved if we can accommodate the needs of the individual student without impacting the education of our resident students.  At the October 9 Board meeting, Dr. Koski shared data on the number of interdistrict transfers currently in our district.  The summary presented at this meeting can be viewed by clicking on the link below. 


Interdistrict Transfer "In" Summary


If you are considering applying for a transfer for the 2015/16 school year, please obtain a release from your district of residence.  Templeton will provide the IDT request form to families who have already obtained a release.  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.
