The Carmel Unified School District, in collaboration with the Carmel Public Library Foundation, is honored to host an award winning film, "The Mask You Live In," as part of our 2017-2018 Parent Education Series. This riveting film presents boys and young men as they struggle to navigate the road to manhood, as well as an illuminating view of societal issues, problems and solutions regarding how we are raising our boys - with a live panel discussion afterwards. A must see for all parents of boys and girls! The film is scheduled for January 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the Carmel High School Theater.
Dear Parents and CUSD employees:
A Chicago colleague asked recently, “What is the name of your new school district?” “Carmel Unified,” I responded. “Unified? ” she inquired as though she had misheard. I quickly responded, “Yes, in Chicago we would call it a Unit District. It serves students in grades K-12. Actually we also have a preschool program here, so it’s actually pre-K to grade 12, but it’s about the same thing as a unit district.”
Lately, I’ve realized there’s more to it than my first simple explanation.I have a growing understanding and appreciation for the power-- and the potential-- implied by the word “Unified” that we carry in our district name, and I am proud to be the superintendent of a district that strives to live out this notion of being “unified.” It is one of the qualities that makes us distinctive. Let me explain this by sharing a couple of recent experiences.

Carmel Schools honored by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Two Carmel Unified schools have been named by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as "Ocean Guardian Schools." This year, Carmel Middle School earned its fifth such award, and Carmelo Child Development Center received its third award.
The Ocean Guardians School Awards are given to schools that make a commitment to the protection and conservation of local watersheds, the world's ocean, and special ocean areas, like national marine sanctuaries. The schools make this commitment by proposing and then implementing a school- or community-based conservation project. [click here to read more...]
