Welcome Back Message from Superintendent
Dear Mt. Diablo Unified School District Families,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 academic year. I hope tomorrow is filled with excitement as we welcome back students to our campuses. We are so fortunate to have the responsibility of educating your students this year. Last year was filled with myriad successes and achievements. Our students made us so proud and we look forward to many more student triumphs. As MDUSD continues to ascend as one of the premiere school districts in the Bay Area, we will continue to focus on safety, academic achievement and welcoming environments.
We are committed to partnering with parents and families. Please sign up for Parent Square (school will provide access points) and visit our new District website (new school websites are still under construction). We will share a wealth of information with you. That said, we have a strong desire to participate in two-way communication as well. There are opportunities to get involved with school site councils, Parent Teacher Associations or become a school volunteer.
Over the summer, many of our students moved out of the area and many moved in. Inevitably, we will need to adjust some of our class assignments for students and teachers. Our teacher union leadership and their CTA (California Teacher Association) representative believe that our labor agreement does not allow the Human Resources Department to notify teachers of teacher transfers during the summer as student enrollment increases or decreases. Instead, transfers must take place during the first 18 days of school. I know this can be daunting. We fully understand the social and emotional impact that this may have on students. Our principals have worked diligently to build balanced classes and in the event that a move is necessary, they will ensure it is handled delicately. The large majority of our students will not be impacted by these adjustments, but just in case it happens to your student, it will be OK!
Again, welcome to the start of another great year in Mt. Diablo.
Dr. Adam Clark
