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.
Old Adobe Union School Districts' first priority registration window for the 2017-2018 school year will close on February 28th. With registration reaching record numbers for this time of year, interested families are encourage to submit forms by the 28th to have the best opportunity to get their child into a preferred school. All five of our schools have already started school tours (Tuesday or Thursday mornings by appointment), and our staff is ready to answer questions and showcase our great school programs. If you are interested, please do come by for a visit. There is nothing that can substitute for seeing classrooms in action and talking with staff, parents and the principals to get a feel for a school.

Old Adobe Union School District has taken on the challenge of higher math expectations and has made significant gains over the past year and a half. After a fun, open-ended, adoption process, our schools recommended Bridges, from the Math Learning Center, for adoption at Kindergarten through 5th grade, and CPM at 6th Grade. In 2015-2016, OAUSD embarked on its first year of implementation of these new programs with professional development for our teachers. Throughout the district, teachers explored the new programs and collaborated with each other. The result: Over 5% more of our students met or exceeded the standards on the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) test given by the State of California. These were some of the larger gains in Sonoma County.
Do you believe in Magic? Do you love cartoons? Are you ready to fall head over heels? We’re betting that your children will answer yes to all three.
Our Kids Care Expanded Learning Program is excited to announce new enrichment classes that are part of the regular Kids Care schedule. Magic, primary age gymnastics, and cartooning are just a few of the options - our Kids Care staff are also preparing fabulous classes in art, snap circuits, sports, and more.

"This program has been amazing for my child and family. I love the teachers and didn't expect such care and professionalism from a subsidized program. I love this school."
