Escondido Union School District Goes Green!

In the past, our schools sent home loads of flyers in students’ backpacks. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly and to embrace innovative technology, we are moving from paper to a digital flyer delivery. Effective October 24, 2013, eflyers will be sent directly to parents’ email inboxes as well as posted on school websites for easy access. All flyers may be accessed by clicking on the  logo.

Every year, our schools will save tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. In addition, paperless delivery of school flyers removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.

School-approved eflyers will keep you informed about upcoming school activities, programs, and events. And our children's backpacks will be a little bit lighter!

Hello and welcome to the Escondido Union School District. As I embark on this amazing journey as the Superintendent of the Escondido Union School District, I want to share my path and experiences that have led me to this amazing district.

I am the product of public education and I have personally seen and benefited from amazing teachers and mentors throughout my career. First and foremost, I am a teacher. I just happen to be working in the role of a superintendent. Teachers have the power to ignite a love of learning like no other profession.

Teaching was my calling and I enjoyed eight wonderful years as a classroom teacher. After my eighth year of teaching and working in various leadership roles as a teacher, I became a principal in the hopes of impacting many more students towards accomplishing their dreams. As a principal, I quickly learned that it was through the power of influence that leadership truly blossoms. After six years as a principal, I moved on to district level administration where I served as a director of human resources, associate superintendent of human resources, and lastly as an associate superintendent of business services. I knew that having a well-rounded experience in all areas of the organization would someday serve me well when I returned to my passion of teaching and learning. While I realize that I am not directly involved in the teaching process, as a superintendent, I can influence the transformation of ensuring that all students receive a quality instructional program. My personal leadership vision is to work collaboratively with the stakeholders within the educational community to “do what is right for all kids, because it is the right thing to do.”

As you see me in the community, in the schools, and walking into the classrooms, please come up and introduce yourself. I really do want to know your dreams and aspirations for this wonderful school district of ours! Together we can make a difference in the lives of our students. On behalf of the Board of Education and myself, welcome to what I know is going to be a wonderful 2014-15 School Year.

Luis Ibarra, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
