County Administrator's Office

Welcome to Inglewood Unified School District

Dear Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) Students, Staff, Families and Community Members,

On behalf of IUSD, I would like to offer words of encouragement, as we begin the second semester of the school year. I hope all of our students, staff and families are off to a great start in 2023. I am thrilled and humbled  to lead our District, as the new County Administrator.

The beginning of a semester, or a new year, is often a time of setting goals or making resolutions about what we hope to accomplish in the coming months. These commitments or resolutions are made with the best of intentions, but oftentimes are forgotten, as the realities of life get in the way of our good intentions. 

Goal-setting should never be reserved for just the start of a semester or year. Having a short or long-term objective is a great way to remain focused and motivated toward many goals. For our students it may be finishing an assignment, earning a higher grade, or fulfilling the requirements to qualify for your first-choice college. For our staff and families, it may be finishing reading a book, being more intentional about spending time on activities one enjoys or simply taking in some self care-moments.

As we approach the midpoint of the school year, I encourage you to work with your student to set goals for both in and out of the classroom. It doesn’t need to be anything complicated or overly difficult to start.  Think about simple changes like setting time aside each evening for reading or writing, joining a club at school, or visiting the library on weekends. As goals and tasks are accomplished, be sure to recognize the achievement and support creating new objectives for the current school year and beyond.

Our goal at the Inglewood Unified School District will always be to educate, challenge and inspire our students.  I thank you for your continued support and wish you success, as we enter the second half of the school year.      

Together, #WeAreInglewoodUnified
