Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year!
As this new year begins, I wish everyone the greatest success as we welcome every one of our DUSD students to their educational journey of 2019-2020. This year will continue to be shaped by our commitment to the reform efforts as outlined in our Competitive Advantage Plan (CAP). We will also take the opportunity to look at new and different strategic actions that will further support the work we do for our scholars and community. We are proud of our accomplishments, but are also steadfast in our efforts to take DUSD to the next level of educational excellence. Please read my welome back message for our community in its entirety here.
The first day of school is Monday, August 12, 2019. I am eager to see you, and will remain in touch throughout the year by sending you a bi-monthly phone call in addition to my weekly e-newsletter message that is issued every Sunday evening. Please subscribe to receive it, if you do not already, by visiting our website. Also, stay up to date with news from our district and schools on a daily basis by downloading our free DUSD App and by following me on Twitter and Instagram @SuptAmerson. I wish you all a wonderful first day of school and an amazing year full of teaching, learning and fun.
Respectfully, Gordon Amerson, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
