Dear FUSD Community,
Happy Holidays! As we wrap up 2022, I wanted to share how grateful I am to serve as your Superintendent. I would like to thank our amazing students, staff, families, and communities of Fillmore and Piru for your support. We will continue to remain student-focused and work relentlessly to provide the necessary resources and support so all students can thrive both inside and outside of our classrooms. Reflecting on this past semester, we have been able to celebrate passing a facilities bond, bringing parent volunteers back into our classrooms, full-schedule athletic events, and music and drama performances. Cheers to 2023 and the great things to come for our students in the Fillmore Unified School District! Enjoy the holiday break and we look forward to welcoming our students back to school on January 11, 2023.

On behalf of the FUSD Governing Board, I wish you a joyful holiday season and a safe and happy new year.

Sincerely,
Christine Schieferle
Superintendent
Fillmore Unified School District

On Tuesday, October 18th, Sierra High students had an opportunity to speak with a representative from the US Air Force. Students were engaged and asked great questions. Did you know that the Air Force has its own accredited community college program that accepts cadet’s basic training and tech training towards an Associate’s Degree, getting them halfway to a 2-year degree? Once the cadet is at a permanent duty station, they can finish their courses at the base. Courtesy Sierra High Blog.
