    Governor Jerry Brown will sign Senate Bill 725 this week.  By signing Bill 725, school districts will be able to award high school diplomas to all the students who did not take the CAHSEE due to the test being halted in 2015.
    San Leandro Unified School District will be awarding diplomas to 22 to of our students who were affected by the suspension of the CAHSEE. SLUSD will enthusiastically be awarding 7 SLHS students, 14 Lincoln Alternative Education Center students, and 1 Lighthouse independent study student their diplomas as soon as the bill passes.
    SLUSD appreciates the work of Senator Loni Hancock who authored the bill and fast tracked it through the Senate.  Because of this solution, our students' futures will not be affected by a decision that was beyond their control. This was a good decision for our students who were caught in this transitional year of the assessment.
    SLUSD looks forward to celebrating the 22 students' accomplishment. For more information regarding the senate bill, please review the press release here.

  • Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year!
    Message from Superintendent McLaughlin
     Mike McLaughlin
    Welcome back for what I expect to be an exciting 2015-16 school year for the San Leandro Unified School District! It has been a privilege to lead this District the last two years and I look forward to another successful year for SLUSD.

    As we embark on another school year, administrators have begun the great work in preparation for educating the young minds of our students. As a team, we took a hard look at all personnel, programs and policies to ensure that we have all of the right elements in place to move the District forward. I am excited to take on the new school year with a team of outstanding leaders and staff.

    In the final year of the three-year strategic action plan, I am dedicated to providing a comprehensive and innovative educational program for all students. The citywide fiber loop continues to gain momentum. As the school year progresses, the speed across the network will increase providing a fast and reliable online connection at all our schools. In my role as the Superintendent, I will continue to push our educators to deliver high standards for learning. Through the integration of technology, we are ensuring that our students are engaged in a 21st century learning environment.

    We will continue to focus on the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for learning. The CCSS provide students with deeper learning opportunities. These standards will help ensure that our students are prepared for both college and career.

    I am also excited for the future opening of the San Leandro Student Health and Wellness Center. In this new state of the art center, our secondary students will have access to academic support, youth leadership, business development, digital fabrication and fitness classes. Additionally, the local community will have access to medical, dental and behavioral health services. This facility will be a great asset to the entire San Leandro community.

    We are also thrilled about our library programming this year. We have made significant improvements in our school libraries across our campuses. The libraries at all eight elementary schools will be open full time, rather than half days as they have been in recent years. In addition, we are preparing for our libraries to become an afterschool learning space later this fall.

    As the leader of the San Leandro Unified School District, I embrace the opportunity to provide excellence in education for the children in the San Leandro community. On behalf of the School Board, we wish the entire SLUSD family an exciting and successful 2015-16 school year.

    Mike McLaughlin, Ed.D.
