Welcome to the Live Oak Unified School District!

We are extremely proud of our outstanding schools, teachers, and staff who serve over 1750 students from Live Oak and the surrounding area. We truly feel that our instructional programs, support efforts, and community service are of the highest quality and bring great value to our students.

For the 2014-2015 school year, we will continue to focus on strengthening instruction and the transition to the new Common Core State Standards. Specifically, we will continue our efforts with English Language Development (ELD) methods, reading comprehension strategies, writing strategies, and advanced grammar techniques. An additional focus this year will be in the area of math and the teaching shift that needs to occur for our students to be successful with both the new standards and assessment system.

We encourage you visit our campuses and explore our school websites. We have new facilities at Live Oak High School and Live Oak Middle School and are working diligently on upgrading our older buildings. We have programs in place to support all students (ELD, AVID, RTI, additional AP classes at LOHS) and are focused on providing them the tools to reach their dreams of college and career.

As we transition to new standards (Common Core), a new assessment (Smarter Balanced), new funding model from the State (Local Control Funding Formula), and a new accountability system (Local Control Accountability Plan) it will be imperative that all stakeholders come together to develop a plan for the future of our district. We look forward to these challenges and the opportunity to work together focused on our students and their successes.
