Welcome to Elementary Education!
From the Office of Elementary Education
We want to extend a warm welcome to all our new families to Chandler Unified School District (CUSD) as well as those returning for the new school year. We assure you that your experience with Chandler Unified Schools will be both positive and productive for you and your registered child(ren).
The 2021-2022 school year brought with it both challenges and celebrations as we continued to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and address the learning loss that occurred with a variety of our student populations. We want to thank our families and community for working alongside us as we remained steadfast in providing strong and rigorous instruction, consistent daily schedules with routine and structure, and social-emotional supports for our students and families as needed.
As we welcome our families back for the 2022-2023 school year, we can assure that your Chandler Schools will continue to provide all our students with a curriculum and instruction that is both rigorous and relevant to student needs, academic interventions that meet students at their point of need, and consistent structures to ensure all student populations are valued, heard, and supported.
Chandler Unified Schools is committed to promoting health and safety within our community through a continued focus on the following areas of mitigation:
- CUSD will continue to follow our longstanding health protocols by requiring students to remain home when sick or when demonstrating symptoms as outlined in the student exclusion guidelines located on the District website.
- Continued disinfecting of high touch point surfaces when and where feasible.
- Encouraging personal hygiene including frequent hand washing with soap and water and/or use of hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
- Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate, per health protocols.
Our continued focus on preparing our students, staff, and community to be Future Ready is evident in the work our community and district are committed to carrying forward with our Future Ready Initiatives. This focus involves collaboration with community stakeholders including parents and students as well as district and site representation. We will continue this effort as we identify areas of growth and refinement necessary to provide our students the world class education they deserve.
Addressing unfinished learning due to pandemic challenges will be present at all sites through opportunities for tutoring and support both on site and through participation in our Net Tutor programming. The continued use of federal relief funds to provide the necessary instructional supports will continue into the school year ahead. District administration along with our teaching staff will work diligently using parent/student feedback and academic achievement data to create instructional environments that move our students forward while supporting their current academic and social-emotional needs.
In closing, we once again extend a warm welcome to all our CUSD families, both new and returning. We know you have a choice in the educational decisions you make, and we are both grateful and humbled at your choosing CUSD to provide the strong instructional outcomes for your children. Should you have questions or concerns, we ask that you reach out to your school administration first to address them. If we can be of assistance or help in anyway, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 480-812-7610. We wish your child a successful 2022–2023 school year!
