End of Year Message from Superintendent Lisa Allen

e-Connections Post
Dear Sac City Unified Students, Staff, and Families, 

As we say goodbye to the 2023-24 school year, I want to congratulate our Sac City Unified community on all that we have accomplished together. It was an honor to stand with our principals and present diplomas to all of our graduates as they head off to the colleges, trade schools, and careers that await them.

I wish to share my utmost appreciation for the important work you do in service to our families. Whether your contributions take place inside or outside the classroom, you are helping to create a safe, supportive and inspiring learning environment for our students each and every day. Personally, I wish to also thank you for the steadfast support and collaborative spirit with which you welcomed me in this first year as Superintendent.

This was a remarkable year for the District in our quest to make our schools more equitable and inclusive led by the fine work of our award-winning facilities team. Miwok, Suy:u, and Umoja were renamed and rededicated to celebrate the diversity and history of the community we serve. The school communities at Kemble/Chavez, Nicholas, and Oak Ridge successfully adapted their way through the construction of new campuses. Those students and staff have just one more school year before their new state of the art campuses will open. I also feel an incredible amount of pride that we finally leveled the playing field for our student-athletes at Hiram Johnson and Burbank, with a new stadium and sports complex and swimming pool, respectively.

These are exciting times for Sacramento City Unified and I am grateful for the privilege of leading this school district. Now, please get some well-earned rest over the summer. Be sure to take precious time for yourself and your family. The new academic year will be upon us even faster this August, and our staff will need to be re-energized and ready to serve and support our wonderful families.

With gratitude,
Lisa Allen
Sacramento City Unified School District
