Message From the Superintendent

Terrence Davis
District Superintendent 
Dear Beaumont Unified School District Community,

On behalf of our Board of Trustees, I would like to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. I am extremely honored to serve as your Superintendent for Beaumont Unified School District. We are a learning organization deeply committed to fostering student growth and high impact instruction.

Beaumont Unified is a growing school district and our schools and facilities are impacted by this growth. Last year, we added more than 270 students and this year we expect 9,880 across the District. Starlight Elementary School, currently under construction in the Sundance community, is the first school in our District to be built in more than nine years. Starlight Elementary, with an anticipated opening date of August 2018, will house nearly 900 students, host the World Language Program, and have excellent instructional programs to support students.

Our mission is to provide high quality educational opportunities for all students in a safe and secure learning environment through a shared commitment among home, school and community. We continue to focus on building strong relationships with students and families, building rigor through instruction, and relevance in the activities we provide students as we prepare them to be college and career ready. We stand together serving our students, our community, and one another while embracing the challenges that come with growth.

We have made impressive gains in our high school graduation rate. Over the last four years, we increased from 85.1% to 90.3%, and we anticipate even more growth from the 2016-17 school year. We are incredibly proud of the accomplishments our students and staff have achieved.

We hope you continue to stay connected with us. The Beaumont Unified School District publishes a monthly newsletter, as well as Board of Trustees meeting highlights. I encourage you to follow us on Twitter @Beaumont _SD and like us on Your support of our schools is greatly appreciated.

As we continue to focus on practices that improve student success, we will collectively celebrate as a team, and provide “quality education through a shared commitment.” I look forward to working and learning with you this school year.

Yours in student success,

Terrence A. Davis
