Message from the Superintendent
Dear TTUSD Community,
It is my honor to share this year’s Teacher of the Year and Classified Employees of the Year with you.

Spring Break is just a few days away, and it’s time for some rest and relaxation for our students, staff, and families.
TTUSD just received another supply of COVID-19 at-home antigen rapid tests from the State for our students. We want to make these available to our TTUSD families.
Elementary schools will be sending them home with their students.
Home test kits will be available at the middle and high school offices for any student or parent who would like one. Just stop by the office.
Be safe and enjoy your break.
Superintendent Chief Learning Officer
Do you like working with kids? We need you!

Many of our positions offer benefits, paid sick leave and holidays, and a pension, and all of them are a great opportunity to work with our wonderful students.

Nominate an outstanding employee for a Fellows or Star Award
Is there a TTUSD staff member that you would like to recognize for consistently going above and beyond in their job, making a huge difference in the education of students?
