2022–2025 Superintendent Goals

To help all members of the Saugus Union family (parents, community members, and staff) understand the goals of the superintendent established by the governing board, we have created a series of articles that detail three major projects associated with each goal. We hope that this information will provide transparency on major projects the district is working on, provide accurate information about the current district needs, and provide additional information related to each larger goal to help families, staff, and community members understand the direction of the district. The challenges faced in public education are numerous, but with clear goals, strong plans, and regular communication, we will ensure that we face each challenge and overcome any obstacles they may present.

We encourage you to review these important topics and information:

  • Goal 1: Facilitate systems and implement actions/projects that ensure the physical safety of school facilities and the emotional safety and well-being of students and staff within each facility.
    • Project A: Refine plans and actions for phase two of “single point of entry projects” to ensure that each site’s perimeter protection meets recommended prevention tools and provides appropriate security for the regular use of the facility by its community partners.
    • Project B: Develop plans and actions to ensure that seismic safety (earthquake) needs, specifically on AB 300 sites (six sites), are appropriately addressed and remedied.
    • Project C: Refine district practices, protocols, training, and messaging to ensure that bullying or discrimination are not experienced on a school campus and that when someone reports a case of bullying or discrimination, it is appropriately investigated and addressed by school staff.
