Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year in Old Adobe Union School District! I hope you had a terrific summer. This is an exciting and productive time for our district, as we prepare to implement a new math program and updated writing program; have hired several new staff; started construction on our solar project; and completed our first Summer Scholars program, serving over 300 OAUSD students!
Last year in my opening letter, I shared my excitement that we were opening two Transitional Kindergarten (TK) classrooms and an expanded PE program. Both were hugely successful. Our PE program is back this year and we are doubling the number of TK
classrooms for a total of four. Our fabulous Kid’s Care program, offering morning coverage starting at 6:30 a.m. and afternoon coverage until 6 p.m., is now available at all Old Adobe Union school sites! Old Adobe Union also launched music for all schools in
2014-2015 and each school site will look to build on that success in 2015-2016.
Dear OAUSD Parents and Community,
We are excited to announce another 21st Century development in Old Adobe Union. This year we are moving to a new way to pay for your student’s school meals using an online payment system called MealTime.
Over the course of this school year you have received my updates and can probably feel my excitement about the wonderful work we are doing in OAUSD. While these updates have provided some key information, the communication flow has been a bit one sided. It is time for us to hear from you! Please take a moment to share your perspective on the year by clicking on one of the survey buttons below (English or Spanish). Your feedback is absolutely critical to help us improve in all areas. Thank you.
Dr. Jason Yamashiro
Superintendent, Old Adobe Union School District

Over the course of this school year we have worked in the background to develop a new report card that matches the approach of the new California Standards, includes crucial information on work habits, and can be applied consistently across Old Adobe Union school district. This work has included researching model report cards from other school districts, feedback sessions with small groups and large groups of our teachers, and even pilots of the draft version of the new report card this year.
