  • News Flash FOCUS is actively looking to fill all Executive Board positions (President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary) as well as a new Social Media Coordinator position for the 2022-2023 school year. If interested in learning more about any of these positions, please contact Kath Uyeda.
    Although all CUSD schools will be open this Fall, FOCUS will generally continue to hold its monthly Board meetings via Zoom during the 2021-2022 school year  (please see the Meeting Schedule for dates). To join a Zoom meeting, please contact Rosaleen Ryan Trambley to receive Zoom login information. A meeting may be changed occasionally to an in-person meeting if there is business that is more conducive to in-person discussion; those exceptions will be noted in this NewsFlash! section when they occur. In-person meetings will be held at 4:30pm in the CMS library. We wish you good health and peace-of-mind during this stressful time.

    Join us for our next Board meeting!
    February 2nd, at 4:30pm

  • Our Mission
    FRIENDS OF CARMEL UNIFIED SCHOOLS, a California non-profit Corporation and Public Education Foundation, supports quality education within the Carmel Unified School District. The Foundation raises money for the purpose of providing grants for classroom and site enhancements that directly support student learning and engagement. 
    Who are we?
    FOCUS is a group of staff, parents and community members who raise funds through donations and events. We donate funds on a continuing basis, for the benefit of all CUSD schools. Since its founding, FOCUS has provided $3,000,000 in grants that support academic and social-emotional student success. Funds are distributed by the Board of Directors based on applications by teachers and administrators in the school district, and every school in our district has received FOCUS funding.
