  • Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year!
    Message from Superintendent McLaughlin
      
     Mike McLaughlin
    Welcome to the San Leandro Unified School District and thank you for visiting our district website. San Leandro Unified School District is comprised of 8 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 1 high school, 1 alternative high school, and an adult school. We pride ourselves by embracing our diverse populations and our dedication to providing a comprehensive innovative educational program to all students in the San Leandro community.

    The San Leandro Unified School District is focused on the goals defined in our 3 year strategic action plan:
    1. Student Achievement, Access and Equity
    2. Technology
    3. Customer Service and Public Relations
    4. School Safety, Health and Wellness
    5. Facilities
     
    I am pleased to announce that we were able to accomplish all of the first year goals set out in our strategic action plan. The first year was identified as the year of analysis and re-organization. As a team, we took a hard look at all personnel, programs, and policies to ensure that we had all of the right elements to move the district forward. I am excited to take on the new school year with a team of outstanding leaders guiding all of my schools and departments.

    This year we are ready to take on the goals for the second year of the strategic action plan. We call this the year of implementation and action. You will see elements of the new Common Core State Standards curriculum and elements of project based learning in the classrooms, access to technology in every classroom throughout the district, proactive safety practices, facility upgrades, and a clear focus on improved customer service.

    To demonstrate our commitment to customer service, the district has moved downtown to the San Leandro City Hall Building. This move will provide better access to our students, parents, staff, and community members. We will also be able to build a stronger relationship with the City of San Leandro to provide better service to all stakeholders. Please check our website for updates on the move.

    As the leader of the San Leandro Unified School District, I again thank you for the honor to provide excellence in education for the children in the San Leandro community. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


    Sincerely.

    Mike McLaughlin, Ed.D.

    The San Leandro Unified School District Board of Education announced the appointment of Reginald Edward Richardson and Ronald Elliott Richardson as Co- Principals of San Leandro Unified High School at last night’s board meeting. The Richardsons were born in Oakland, CA and have worked as educators throughout the East Bay. Reginald and Ronald taught in the Oakland Unified School District for several years and then launched their careers as administrators after receiving their masters’ degrees in education from the University of California, Berkeley’s Principal Leadership Institute in 2006. Both have served as assistant principals and principals in West Contra Costa County. Ronald and Reginald Richardson became Co-Principals at Claremont Middle School in the Oakland Unified School District in 2012-13 and have demonstrated a unique partnership and ability to lead Claremont into becoming a dramatically improved school under their leadership. The San Leandro Unified School District is excited to welcome the Richardsons to our organization, but most importantly, the district is thrilled to fill this critical position at San Leandro High School as we prepare to welcome students and staff back for an amazing 2014-2015 academic year.
