  • CUSD Invites Community Members to take Mission, Vision and Values Survey


    mission vision values survey announcement


    The Carmel Unified School District (CUSD) is seeking input from students, staff, families and our community as we explore our mission, vision, and values as we move into a post-COVID world. 

    At an upcoming meeting, our Board of Education will be discussing CUSD’s current mission, vision, and values to ensure they are relevant and effective in motivating students and staff, defining our purpose, and connecting with our community. 

    A stakeholder-driven process will help to define and refine these statements and will include listening sessions, surveys, and other two-way communication opportunities. This survey will be first in a series of opportunities to engage with us in this process.

    We value your feedback in this process to review and ensure all statements inspire and reflect our purpose today and our goals for the future to foster a culture of excellence. If you are a Carmel resident, please click this link to complete this short survey by the end of day on Thursday, October 21st (survey will close at 5 p.m. that evening).

    Thank you in advance for your valuable feedback.

  • Second Edition of #WeAreCarmelUnified

    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.”

    Captain Cooper School, a K-5 school nestled in the Santa Lucia Mountains of Big Sur, is located 26 miles south of Carmel on California State Route One. Surrounded by mountains, the school sits some 500 feet above the entrance to the Big Sur Valley. Our site is also home to the Apple Pie Preschool. Together the schools have just under 90 students.
