SUPERINTENDENT’S WELCOME LETTER

Dear Windsor Unified School District Community Members,

Welcome to a most positive 2017-2018 school year!

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Brandon Krueger, and I am honored and excited to have been selected to serve the students, parents/guardians, staff, and Board of Trustees of the Windsor Unified School District as its new Superintendent, beginning on July 1, 2017.

It has been a pleasure to work (as the Director of Human Resources) under the leadership of Superintendent Steve Jorgensen for the past 14 months. I have a thorough understanding of our solid District and the people who strive to continue its merit and accomplishments. From the moment I arrived in April of 2016, I felt extremely connected and committed to WUSD.

While I had worked in the private sector, in financial/retail customer service, marketing, training, and management for 11 years (through high school and college), I began my professional career in PreK-12 public education in 1992. Over the past 24 years, I have served as a classroom Teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal, Director, Associate Superintendent, and Consultant. I have also served in the college sector as an adjunct Assistant Professor of Education and Educational Leadership. With all of my experiences, I am confident and prepared to provide excellent leadership for WUSD.

I believe that by working together, we can continue to make Windsor schools places where children learn, grow, thrive, and find/develop their passion, talents, interests, and aspirations.   When we place great value in supporting students, in collaboration, we are able to achieve so much, including the following accomplishments and current priorities (as identified in our Local Control Accountability Plan {LCAP} process):

  • Passage of the Measure F Bond to improve school facilities throughout the District
  • New and ongoing training for educators and programs to support all students (TK-12) with Social/Emotional Learning and restorative practices
  • The adoption of common core-aligned curriculum in English Language Arts (ELA) and in Mathematics, including our latest adoption of ReadyGEN (an ELA curriculum for grades TK through 5th)
  • Academic intervention and instructional strategies to support continued increases in proficiency in Math and ELA
  • New and ongoing training for educators and programs that support English Language Development for our English Learners
  • Services to continue strengthening college/career readiness (A-G requirements attainment)
  • New and ongoing training and implementation of Big Picture Learning (officially approved for the 2017-2018 school year as the flagship North Bay Met Academy @ Windsor) as part of the programs offered at Windsor Oaks Academy

These items represent a sample of some of the many things we have to be proud of and to continue working together on.

I look forward to working with our Board of Trustees, our teachers, our administrators, our classified support staff, our parent groups and our local organizations to further develop and realize progress, on behalf of our approximately 5,100 students. The dedication of the above stakeholders will result in the refinement and delivery of rigorous and engaging academic programs and opportunities in reinforcement of the arts, technology, athletics, and various areas of enrichment. Whether you are a parent/guardian or a community member, I encourage your involvement in our schools and the many activities our students participate in.

We look forward to meeting and continuing to work with our students, beginning on Thursday, August 17, 2017, the first date of instruction. For additional information and reminders, please check our website: www.wusd.org. Again, welcome!

Most sincerely,

Brandon Krueger, Ed.D.
Superintendent
