EUSD Board of Education

A Message From the Board

The mission of Evergreen Union School District is to provide the foundation and encouragement for all students to achieve their social, physical, and academic potential in a safe, nurturing, and positive environment. The District will prepare all students to reach proficiency with state standards as measured by the state-wide Smarter Balanced Assessment and other local assessments. Students not reaching proficiency will be supported through programs and resources such as After School Intervention, Learning Center, Student Success Team meetings, and Special Education. It is our belief that “All Children Can Learn.”

Through motivated educators, using both conventional and creative learning techniques, and parent and community involvement, we can instill in our children the importance of education and guide them as they transition into successful, productive, and confident adults by providing:
  • A positive learning environment where every child possesses a high self esteem, self-worth, and self motivation.
  • A caring, learning atmosphere where teachers, staff, parents, and neighbors unite to provide each child with the necessary “tools” needed to achieve both personal and academic goals.
  • A safe surrounding where our children express diversity, compassion, individuality, and a true desire to learn that together “We Can Make a Difference.”
