Message from Our Superintendent

Superintendent's Message: March 2024

Dear TUHSD Community, 

Welcome to the madness of March. As the luck of the Irish would have it, this month comes with a nice spring break. There are a million reasons to get out of the house this month while our weather is nice. You can go enjoy some NASCAR racing, catch a spring training baseball game, or catch the NCAA Final Four, and these are all right here in the Tolleson Union boundary! If those options are too pricey, then it’s a great time of year to just throw some carne asada on the grill at a park while playing your favorite sports with the kids and family. I hope you all take time to enjoy the weather before it gets too hot.

The seasons aren’t the only thing changing, as I am happy to announce that our Curriculum and Instruction Department is now the Office of Learning and Academic Success (OLAS). This department intends to make some waves as we continue to find ways to reach our students so we can teach our students.  

We are also going to be building our five-year strategic plan. We want every student that graduates to know their next step and have the confidence to take it. We want them to be aware of the possibilities for their life so they make informed decisions. We intend to work closely with parents to guide students towards their life after graduation. It’s a dream to have every former student in their mid-20’s on a career path and able to afford their own home. The strategic plan will turn the dream into an ambitious goal.

I do have some exciting news to share with all of you. Our board president, Dr. Elda Luna-Najera, was appointed to the state legislature to fill a vacancy in legislative district 22. We know that Dr. Luna-Najera will do her very best to represent the citizens of our community, much like she already does with representing the best interests of our parents and students as a governing board member. Congratulations, Dr. Luna-Najera.

Time is running out to make a tax credit contribution (April 15 deadline). You can contribute up to $200 for an individual or $400 for a married couple and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit on your state income taxes. You can just pay taxes and let downtown talk about how to spend it, or you can give it to support the smiling faces participating in extracurricular activities around our campuses and have your taxes reduced. I know you will make the right choice!

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to the Tolleson Union High School District.

Important Dates:

  • Monday, March 11 through Friday, March 15: Spring Break (No School)
  • Monday, March 29: Cesar Chavez Holiday (No School)
