  • New Check-in Procedures

    As part of our larger district-wide focus on safety, CUSD is implementing the Raptor Visitor Management system at all of our school campuses. This system instantly screens all visitors, volunteers, and contractors against the sex offender registries in all 50 states. Starting January 6, 2020 all visitors to our schools will be required to check in at the front office with a picture ID. Please remember to bring your picture ID to your child's school each time you visit.

  • Carmel Unified School District Educator Nominated for National LifeChanger of the Year Award

     Carmel High School physical education and weight training teacher Craig Johnston has been nominated for the 2019-2020 national LifeChanger of the Year award.

    Johnston was nominated by his colleague, Leigh Cambra, for patiently and lovingly inspiring his students. He is known throughout his school as “Coach J,” and he is beloved by students and staff alike. He is often a central motivating force in their lives. Many students who struggle with self-esteem have flourished in his class, and these experiences often impact them throughout their lives. Johnston is known as one of the kindest, most compassionate teachers on campus. He always makes time for his students and colleagues, no matter how busy he is, and he supports them in any way he can.


    “As a colleague, friend and a former parent of his students, Coach J has inspired me over the years to be the very best version of myself,” said Diana Govan. “He consistently radiates amazing, positive vibes for all of his students and co-workers. He embodies inclusivity and compassion for all!”


    Sponsored by the National Life Group Foundation, LifeChanger of the Year recognizes and rewards the very best K-12 educators and school district employees across the United States who are making a difference in the lives of students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership. Each school year, LifeChanger of the Year receives hundreds of nominations from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Seventeen individual LifeChanger of the Year awards will be given during the 2019-2020 school year.
