With the improved economy, Gleason will support sixth- through 12th-grade education programs throughout the district and provide supervision to secondary school principals.

Veteran educator Clara Finneran is coming to Las Virgenes Unified School District. The former principal of Pleasant Valley School of Engineering and Arts in Camarillo joins LVUSD as assistant superintendent of education, replacing Mary Schillinger, who retired in June after 40 years in education, including 13 in the Las Virgenes district. “I am excited to join a high-performing district leadership team that keeps all students at the center of its work,” said Finneran, a Camarillo resident. Finneran said educators have been hit with many changes over the past years, including shifts in standards, coursework and how student success is assessed.
The LVUSD district offices are busy this week as staff and administrators are returning to work to get ready for the start of the 2016-2017 school year. As our families and students also begin to prepare for the upcoming year, we ask that you consider following LVUSD, as well as your individual school site social media accounts, to stay up to date on breaking news and important information that may impact our school sites, students, and neighbors. While you're there, please help us celebrate the many wonderful things happening across our campuses, and if inclined, feel free to follow, like and share our news.

In addition to raising the CIF Championship banner that night, they will also be honoring the firefighters and first responders of the Old Fire that burned through Calabasas in June. Thanks to the heroic efforts of over 400 L.A. County firefighters from all over the Southland, Air Ops, the Office of Emergency Management, and orderly evacuations by the Sheriff’s Department, there were no injuries and no residences were damaged. CHS wants to take the opportunity to show these brave individuals how much they are appreciated! CHS will be providing a pregame BBQ and small ceremony to the firefighters, sheriffs and first responders, followed by a big half time ceremony for all to enjoy. Get your game tickets and join the community as we say "thank you" to all the heroic men and women who protected our city!
