Our goal: provide every child with an inspiring educational experience
The schools in the Sacramento City Unified School District are fulfilling our mission to provide every child with a challenging and inspiring educational experience that prepares them to be college, career and life-ready graduates.
Our Strategic Plan 2016-21: United for Equity. Committed to Excellence outlines the district’s goals for ensuring positive student outcomes.
In alignment with the district’s Local Control and Accountability Plan, the vision of the Strategic Plan for all decisions to be guided by the core values of equity, achievement, integrity, and accountability.
With common goals and shared responsibility, we can make Sacramento City Unified School District a model of innovation, teamwork and excellence.
SCUSD gives teachers dedicated time every week to get together and plan lessons, share ideas and discuss ways to improve instruction. Research shows that educators who regularly collaborate are more effective in the classroom and that students benefit from teachers working closely with their peers.
To accommodate this collaborative time, students are released early on Thursdays. All other days, students will stay in school a little longer than last year.
Below are downloadable academic calendars and school bell schedules.
SCUSD offers a variety of programs and schools to meet the needs of our diverse student population and their families — one is right for you!
To help students and parents learn about SCUSD’s many options, schools and programs are offering campus tours, information nights, “shadow days” and more. Now is the time to pay a visit.
Adult Education opens doors and delivers success! It provides lifelong educational opportunities and services preparing adult students with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate effectively as citizens, workers, parents, and family members. Adult Education has been part of the Sacramento City Unified School District’s public education program since 1872. Classes are held in a variety of school and community locations throughout Sacramento.
We are planning virtual graduation ceremonies to honor our graduating class of 2020. While we wish we could celebrate in person together, a virtual graduation ceremony is a safe way for us to celebrate and congratulate our seniors for achieving this significant milestone.
