Superintendent's Message

This year has been a year of honoring excellence in education as three of our BOUSD schools celebrated big birthdays. Brea Junior High celebrated 100 years, Arovista Elementary celebrated 60 years and Mariposa Elementary 50 years. 

BOUSD continues to enjoy recognition for innovative programs and best practices in education. Brea Junior High and Brea Olinda High School were honored as Gold Ribbon Schools by the California Department of Education. 

As we move into the 2017-18 school year, BOUSD is dedicated to an ongoing cycle of improvement. Recent enhancements for the upcoming school year include the implementation of AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) at Brea Olinda High School and Arovista Elementary School. Additionally, the college and career pathways program at Brea Junior High will be expanding to include Project Lead the Way (PLTW). Brea Olinda High School entered into a partnership with the Foundation for Korean Language & Culture in U.S.A. and will offer Korean 1 and 2 next year, with approximately 50 students already signed up to begin this world language program. Brea Olinda and Brea Canyon High Schools will also be expanding their Career Technical Education (CTE) offerings and will continue to grow their wonderful partnership with Fullerton College. This partnership allows students to take college-level courses for free while earning college credit in courses offered at our school sites. 

I am grateful for the commitment of our students, parents, staff, community partners and board members. Together we will continue to plan and provide for a quality education in the 21st Century for our students.
