Carmel Unified School District

  • #WeAreCarmelUnified - Environmental Stewardship

    Recently, I found a YouTube video “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek to be inspirational. Perhaps you’ve seen his talk where he instructs leaders or CEOs to ask “WHY?” we are doing something, not just answering the easier “What we are doing?” and “How we are doing it?” questions. As an educator, I am constantly thinking about “The Why Question” in relationship to our public schools. Why do we or why should we exist? Why are we essential to our democracy? Why is our existence as a public school district absolutely critical to the future of America and the world? What are my responsibilities as superintendent in leading us to these higher purposes? Click here for full article.

    Subject: Managing Student Protests Safely

    Dear Carmel Unified School District  Students and Families,

    We are aware of the numerous school walkouts protesting school violence that are happening or are being planned in the upcoming weeks or months across the nation and on the peninsula.

    It is important that all of us continue to work on the issues of school safety, but we are striving to do so in ways that minimize disruption to school instruction.

    Subject: CUSD District Safety Message

    Dear Carmel Unified Parent and/or Staff member:

    I hope you had a restful break week and spent valuable time with family and/or friends.  Though it was a time normally to take a mental break, most of us have found it difficult, given the recent extremely horrific school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. This tragedy marks the eighth gun-related incident on a school campus this year that has resulted in injury or death. I know you join with all of us in Carmel Unified as we send our thoughts and prayers to help in the healing process of those impacted in South Florida. Click here for full article.

  • Ocean Guardian School logo  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...]
