ABOUT MESA UNION BOARD OF TRUSTEES: Mesa Union School District’s consists of (5) Board of Trustees; the role of the Board of Trustees is to ensure that the district is responsive to the values, beliefs and priorities of the Mesa Union School community. Trustees fulfill this role by performing five major responsibilities:

  • Setting direction
  • Establishing an effective and efficient structure
  • Providing support
  • Ensuring accountability
  • Providing community leadership as advocates for children, the school district and public schools

These five responsibilities represent core functions that are so fundamental to a school system’s accountability to the public that they can only be performed by an elected governing body. Authority is granted to the board as a whole, not each member individually. Therefore, board members fulfill these responsibilities by working together as a governance team with the superintendent, principal, and our talented teachers and staff to:

  • Assure that Mesa Union School students have the opportunity to actively participate in a rigorous and rewarding academic environment enriched with visual and performing arts, technology, robotics, athletics, and other extracurricular activities.
  • Sustain financial security of the District, while utilizing available resources to their highest potential and best use
  • Working together to provide the vision, resources, advocacy, leadership, and     accountability in a transparent, respectful, and collaborative manner to help students, their parents, and their teachers increase student achievement.
  • Recognize the talents, devotion, and extraordinary efforts of all district employees.
  • Collaborate with others who believe in student achievement and success, while distinguishing Mesa Union School District as a leader in Ventura County.

Each of the Board of Trustees would appreciate and welcome your ideas and thoughts as we strive to move the District forward. Please contact by through the email address provided below.
