The Old Adobe Union School District is located in southern Sonoma County and serves the children, parents, and community on the east side of Petaluma, California.
With “Excellence for Learning” as our mission, our vision is one of establishing high expectations in an environment of caring and nurturing where each child achieves his or her personal best. Staff members in this system are proactive, efficacious and resourceful about improving student learning and raising expectations; at the same time they are accountable to their students, parents, and principals.
In August Superintendent Yamashiro launched the second annual independent reading challenge with an ambitious word count goal for all schools. The students rose to the challenge and all five schools exceeded their goals, with a district word count total of over 115,000,000 so far. This year, Old Adobe Union's Accelerated Reader and independent reading work is supported by a grant from Sonoma Wine Country Weekend. The new books from this grant and other sources have been a huge hit with OAUSD students- as has the ongoing use of Accelerated Reader. You will not be surprised to hear that we had some amazing success stories this first tri-mester. Since the start of the school year we have over two hundred students who have gained over a full year of reading growth- wow!
We have now completed a little over 25% of our school year in Old Adobe Union. How are we doing? Please take a moment (about 10-15 minutes) to take our parent survey and share feedback on academics, safety, communication, and other areas. Parent input helps shape our program for the rest of the year, and our planning process for future years which is why we have set a goal of 80% of our parents completing a survey. We know how busy you are and how hard it is to get back to surveys like this- please take the survey now if you can. English / Spanish
