Superintendent of Schools

After thirteen years of service as Superintendent of the Baldwin Park Unified School District, I announced my retirement earlier this year. During my tenure, the District has gone through many changes, reached many milestones, and made it through the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. While keeping the District solvent, we maintained Class Size Reduction and boasted higher student achievement, increasing test scores at all school sites by an average of 135 points over the last ten years, and increased graduation rates for an average of 87.6%.

 

In the last 13 years, BPUSD obtained funding in excess of $115 million by way of State and Federal Grants, State and Federal Matching Funds, as well as $31.2 million in Federal E-Rate Funding. These funds and resources have been utilized for the construction and renovation of facilities districtwide, including new state-of-the-art facilities at North Park High, Sierra Vista High, and Baldwin Park High. The District is delighted with its modernized athletic fields and stadiums at both comprehensive high schools, which brought a new sense of pride not only to our students and staff, but also to our community.

 

In an age where adult education programs are being cut throughout the state, BPUSD’s Adult and Community Education Program has expanded its services to include a highly reputable Culinary Arts Program, as well as two new state-of-the-art Auto Centers. These programs have increased Technical and Vocational Programs throughout our community.

 

I have been blessed to work with a phenomenal Board of Education, Administrators, Teachers and Classified staff. These are their accomplishments and I thank them for allowing me to be part of this journey.
