    AADUSD is Growing:

    Meadowlark's enrollment has exceeded its capacity and we need to re-open Acton School in the fall of 2017 to ensure class sizes remain low.

    Please join us for a town hall discussion regarding this topic and specifically what we should name the newly upgraded facility.  Included in this discussion will be California Education Requirements.

  • High Desert Music Keyboard Program - Mr. Rowland

    Dr. Brent Woodard
    Ms. Kim Lytle
    Mr. Mark Distaso
    Mr. Ed Porter
    Mr. Michael Fox
    Mr. Larry Layton

    At the close of school today, I was feeling rather reflective and felt the need to compose a brief letter of appreciation to our school district leadership.  In the over thirty years that I have served in the Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District, I can't remember there ever being a period of time where so many positive changes and programs are being instituted simultaneously.

    The district, under your collective leadership is choosing to invest large sums of financial resources into the education of our local youth as well as improving school beautification.  Everywhere one looks, you see signs of innovative programs beginning as well as technology resources being made easily accessible in all district classrooms.  It's very exciting and inspirational.

    I personally want to express my sincere gratitude that as a district you were willing to financially invest in the High Desert School piano keyboard program.  When Ms. Lynn David presented me with the challenge to create a music program that all sixth grade students could access during the school day, I was both honored and bewildered. A meaningful program would be expensive, and I wasn't sure if our district even had the funds to implement such an idea.  Ms. David encouraged me to "dream big" and see what I could create.

    I have always been grateful that the district supports the after school hand bell program that I coordinate.  Each year I have the humble privilege to witness the power of music in the hands of our local young people.  The hand bell program started very small and has grown into a source of great pride for so many individuals.  Definitely that particular dream grew far larger than I had ever imagined.

    After piano class today, I was filled with a similar kind of joy and excitement.  It's hard to describe the emotions one feels to witness an entire class of beginning music students experience in unison the satisfaction of working together to create music.  The word "magical" sums it up pretty well.

    I assure you the money that you budgeted for this program will be a wise investment. As far as I know, we may be the only public school with a piano keyboard studio where all entering sixth grade students are taught music as a regular part of their academic curriculum.  Rest asssured that I will take this responsibility that you have entrusted to me seriously.  This is a new venture in my teaching career - and it's a journey that I am sincerely grateful that you have allowed me to traverse.

    In sincere appreciation

    Larry Rowland,

    High Desert School, teacher

    On September 15th the Acton-Agua Dulce USD hosted a financial training workshop for the District's authorized Charter Schools.

    Thirteen of our fifteen Charter's were represented at the training.  This was a fantastic turn out with over 25 participants in attendance.  The presenters focused on multiple topics including attendance reporting, financial reporting, cash flow management, best practices and a variety of other topics related to fiscal monitoring and oversight.Charter training 1

    The attendees expressed their gratitude towards AADUSD for hosting this training and felt the information was timely and beneficial to their schools.

    This training represents one example of how the District continues to be a responsible authorizer of its Charter schools by providing direction, allocating resources, understanding the Charter schools  financial position and building capacity for each organization.
