Rialto Unified School District
Dear Rialto Unified School District Families:
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!
On Monday, August 7, 2023, we embarked on a new school year, filled with enthusiasm and hope for a fruitful academic journey ahead. This year, we are not only driven by our dedication to education but also by our District's definition of kindness: The personification of honorable and compassionate service to others. Our path forward will be illuminated by our unwavering spirit of kindness, equity, and strategic insight. As we navigate the evolving landscape of education, our primary focus remains on bolstering teaching and learning, fostering mental well-being, and instilling personal responsibility. Our District's pledge is to create an environment where both students and staff members flourish, feeling valued and safe.
For the 2023-2024 school year, our commitment to addressing the educational needs of our students remains steadfast. We emphasize the importance of literacy, recognizing it as the gateway to all other academic disciplines. Alongside this, we will persist in our efforts to cater to the mental health needs of our students, utilizing the diverse programs and resources available within our District and the broader community.
Together, with your unwavering support, the District is poised to Bridge your child’s Future Through Innovation.
Cuauhtémoc Avila, Ed.D.,
Rialto Unified School District Superintendent
