Message from the DUSD Board of Trustees

Welcome to the Durham Unified School District!

From the Board of Trustees:

The Durham Unified School District Board of Trustees would like to welcome back both new and returning students, parents and staff. As we begin the 2021-2022 school year, we are excited, enthusiastic and confident that our students will set and reach new goals on their academic journey to prepare them for a successful future. Thanks to a caring and dedicated staff, working hand in hand with parents and community volunteers, this journey will be very beneficial and rewarding to students, parents and staff.

The pandemic continues to challenge staff, students and parents with ongoing uncertain regulations coming from Washington, Sacramento and Butte County. We strive to assure the safety and security of our school community.

The key to Durham Unified School District's tremendous success is the active and ongoing parental support. We encourage parents, friends and community members to volunteer their time and skills to supplement our limited resources. Student attendance is critical to a student's success and will be enhanced by making sure they are encouraged to practice good hygiene, proper nutrition and get plenty of rest. We value the cooperation and partnerships that include parents, teachers, community volunteers/organizations and staff that will assure we will continue to be successful in our educational endeavors and an ongoing source of pride in our community.

Our entire Board takes seriously the responsibilities you have delegated to us to maintain and enhance our student's potential to be knowledgeable, productive and responsible citizens. We hope parents and citizens will review our polices that guide us as an Administrative team to accomplish our mission. We encourage you to be actively involved in your children's education by visiting classrooms, volunteering when possible, and meeting when needed with Teachers, Principals and the Superintendent. Our Board holds monthly meetings with posted agendas and welcomes your attendance, input and observations.

As Board members, we are your neighbors and gladly receive your questions, concerns or comments you feel will assist us in reaching our District's goals.

Finally, we thank you for your continued confidence in Durham Unified School District and we are looking forward to working with you to help our students and staff complete another productive, safe, and rewarding year.

Your Board of Trustees: Jennie DuBose, David Loudermilk and Lance Smith Clerk of the Board, Matthew Thorpe

Board President, Ed McLaughlin
