Dear JUHSD Community,
Thanks to those of you who came out for our Equity Lens Tool Feedback Sessions this week. The weather kept our audiences small, but we made a recording of our presentation for you to watch at home.
As I shared last week, our DELT (District Executive Leadership Team) has created an Equity Lens Tool that will help us to dismantle inequitable practices in our schools and district so we can ensure that all of our students have what they need when they need it.
I ask that you take 15 minutes to watch our presentation. Once you have watched the presentation, please share your thoughts with us by filling out our Equity Lens Tool Survey
We will hold a drop in live virtual feedback session on Monday, March 13 from 6:30 - 7:30 pm. We will not be presenting, but are making ourselves available to answer questions and hear directly from you. Please follow this Virtual Feedback Session link to join!
Finally, you can find all of this information on our district website.
Please stay safe and dry this weekend, and don't ever hesitate to reach out. My door is always open!

Career Fair at TNHS
TNHS students were able to discuss their future career plans, including their attending college, the military, or trade school programs, with these industry leaders. During the event, one industry representative had this to say about the students attending this event. "The students here are intelligent, engaged, polite, thoughtful, and inquisitive." Great job to all involved!
Concert in the Park
During this special engagement, TNHS had the opportunity to mix, mingle, and play music with future Tigers.
