Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year

A Message from the Superintendent

Dear CVUSD Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.

We have had a lot of exciting projects reach fruition over the summer break. On the facilities front, be sure to follow our CVUSD Bond Measure I project to see the progress we made at several school sites over the summer. From an ultra-modern state-of-the art library at Thousand Oaks High School, to new flooring and walls at Thousand Oaks High School’s Innovation Lab, to landscape renovation at Westlake Hills Elementary, as well as new student lockers at Sequoia Middle School, among many other ongoing facilities and technology upgrades that occur year round thanks to Measure I.
