Live Oak Unified School District

Empowering all students to achieve success

Welcome to the LOUSD

We are reaching out to you for your input on two surveys to help us make some important decisions for next year and beyond.  The first survey will ask for your thoughts on the upcoming school year.  We are still waiting for clear guidance from the Center of Disease Control, California Department of Education and Public Health.  As we wait for guidance, we are exploring several options that will allow us to safely meet the needs of our students and staff.  Your input is crucial for our planning and the options that best fit our district families.  The second survey will ask your thoughts on the location of 5th grade.  We are looking at whether to keep 5th grade at Live Oak Middle School or transition it to Luther Elementary in the next few years.  Please take a few minutes and give us your valuable feedback.  Thank you!

Mientras que esperamos, estamos explorando varias opciones que nos permiten alcanzar las  necesidades de nuestros estudiantes y personal con seguridad. Su aportación es importante para nuestros planes y la opción que mejor les queda a nuestras familias del distrito. La segunda encuesta le pide su opinión sobre la locación del 5º grado.

We are extremely proud of our outstanding schools, teachers, and staff who serve over 1800 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 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to focus on strengthening instruction and College and Career Readiness. Specifically, we will continue our efforts with English Language Development (ELD) methods, writing strategies, critical thinking, collaboration, organizational strategies and reading comprehension strategies. A continued 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 throughout the district and are working diligently on upgrading our older buildings. We have programs in place to support all students (ELD, AVID, RTI, additional AP  and CTE (career technical educations) classes at LOHS) and are focused on providing them the tools to reach their dreams of college and career.
As we continue to strengthen our programs and services, it is imperative that all stakeholders continue to provide input and guidance to move the district toward our goal of success for all students. We look forward to these challenges and the opportunity to work together focused on our students and the realization of their dreams.
