San Leandro Unified Graduate Profile

  • The San Leandro Unified School District’s (SLUSD) Graduate Profile is a shared vision that identifies a set of student outcomes to define what all graduates should know and be able to do in order to be prepared for post-secondary education, career and civic participation.

    As a community, the San Leandro Unified School District looks forward to preparing its students for college and career by supporting them and implementing the Graduate Profile which will demonstrate that they are Cultural and Ethical Leaders, Critical Thinkers, Communicators and Collaborators and have a Healthy Mind and Body.

    • On June 12, 2018 the School Board of Education took action to approve the Graduate Profile.
    • This process was conducted through a robust stakeholder process facilitated by Connect Ed and SLUSD.
    • It included a diverse work group comprised of parents, teachers, community members, Board members, principals, bargaining unit representatives (CSEA  SLTA)
