A Message from Our Superintendent

Welcome to Corcoran Unified School District. Our governing board, community, and district share a common goal of becoming a “Destination District.” This vision is becoming a reality thanks to our staff members who work hard to create a positive environment that encourages innovation and personal growth, resulting in a culture of excellence for our students.

Our mission is to develop confident, successful academic achievers among our whole student population. We believe nothing can compete with the positive influences of highly effective teachers and schools. We refuse to accept low expectations and mediocrity for low-income and underprivileged students. All students can achieve!

We are pleased to offer every child access to high-tech educational tools via the One2One Technology Learning Program; a distinct privilege as just over 100 school districts in the nation to have an Apple Distinguished Technology Program!

I am grateful to serve as superintendent of this dynamic, growing district; please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
