Status of Common Core at TUSD
TUSD’s transition to Common Core is strategically moving along as we work to provide all teachers and administrators with Common Core training on standards organization, literacy across all contents, unpacking of the new standards, Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC) expectations, and collaboration that will require Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) for our students. TUSD’s Math Pathway Cohort continues to meet regularly to plan and prepare our transitioning of the Integrated Math model in grades 6-8 next fall, and very shortly, TUSD will move forward with selecting a science pathway in the same collaborative manner. In the meantime, PLC’s will continue to align current instructional materials and benchmarks to the CCSS as we work to embrace what we “know” and “let go” of what is not necessary throughout the remainder of the school year.

Visitor Badges Required
As a matter of safety, anytime you are visiting a school campus we ask you to stop at the school office first to sign in and receive a visitor badge to wear while on campus. This is a matter of safety for our students and staff. You will notice all of our staff and our 7th-12th grade students will be wearing badges. Thank you for your cooperation with this safety procedure.
Student ID Badges
All students in 7th through 12th grade are required to wear an ID badge with a district issued breakaway lanyard during school hours. All TUSD staff are also required to wear ID badges at all times during the work day as well. This is a safety measure for staff and students. A new policy regarding this is available under the Parents and Student section of this website under Student ID Badges.
If you are visiting a campus, please stop by the school office before going to your students' classroom to sign in and receive a visitors badge. This helps the site administration identify anyone on the school campus who are not staff or students.
If you have questions regarding this policy, please contact the Student Services Office at (209) 667-0881.
