Superintendent Message

Welcome to Salinas City Elementary School District and thank you for visiting our website. The foundation of what we do every day and what we aspire to be, is found in our vision and mission:

• Our Mission:  Salinas City Elementary School District will provide a well-rounded education with multiple opportunities for all children’s success.  

• Our Vision:  We expect all children to be at or above grade level.

California has set high academic standards for public schools.  It takes great dedication and strong commitment from our teachers, support staff, school leaders and district administration to achieve our goals.  Our talented staff bring skills and enthusiasm to their work each day to provide for our students a safe and caring learning environment, stellar instruction, access to the latest technology, and relevant learning opportunities that will prepare them for success in the 21st Century.

At Salinas City Elementary School District we appreciate the support of a wonderful parent community.  As we embark on this journey, I am working diligently to foster a collaborative environment for our families. To that end, I want to encourage you to get involved this year; join the PTA or consider becoming a School Site Council or English Learner Advisory Council officer, we can all make a difference together.

Thank you for supporting us in the important work of educating our children in Salinas City Elementary School District.   We sincerely appreciate our community’s commitment to building stellar schools.  Our students both need, and deserve, nothing less if they are to reach their greatest potentials.
