Monday, November 4th from 6-8 PM at THS
TUSD is holding its 2019 College and Career Fair on Monday, Nov. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Tustin High School. The 34th annual event is open to all TUSD high school students and their parents. Over 90 colleges, universities and military academies will have representatives hand out literature and answer questions about their institutions. Students and parents will be able to gather information on campus locations, curriculum, admissions requirements, tuition and living expenses. There will also be workshops on financial aid, higher education options in California and out-of-state, and NCAA eligibility. Additionally, community colleges, Coastline Regional Occupational Program (ROP) and career technical education programs will share their programs with Tustin Unified high school students.
From the TUSD Superintendent:
It is an honor to serve as Superintendent of the Tustin Unified School District. Every day students are nurtured and challenged to prepare for a successful future. Our goal is that all students thrive now and in the future. Tustin Unified and the community have always made facilities planning a priority, and we still have significant facilities needs:
Most schools in Tustin are over 50 years old.
- Many permanent classrooms have never been renovated.
- Campuses require utility upgrades including electricity, water, gas, and sewer.
- School safety upgrades are needed.
- Assembly areas are insufficient for current enrollments.
I am proud that Tustin Unified is taking the initiative to actively address these challenges. Last year the District embarked on updating its Long-Range Facilities Master Plan with over 600 participants.
We are now sharing our process and needs with the community to gather further input. We are working diligently to engage with the community to share the significant needs for modernized classroom buildings that ensure high quality outcomes for all students. Great schools protect our investment, improve our quality of life, and protect property values.
Now we need to hear from you. What do YOU think? What are YOUR questions?"
Gregory A. Franklin, Ed.D.
Superintendent, Tustin Unified School District
