How is our District measuring up? 

The California School Dashboard is the new grading system for California's schools. 

The new, multifaceted dashboard replaces the Academic Performance Index, an accountability system that assigned a single score to schools based on standardized test results. The dashboard replaces the old, one-size-fits-all approach of API by providing multiple measures of student learning and reporting those measures in a format similar to a student report card. To check out our District's scores, go to and type in Borrego Springs. 


Check out our adopted Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). This plan details the District's goals, actions and budgets together in a single document.     LCAP 17-18

Superintendent Message

To the wonderful community of Borrego Springs,

I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as your Superintendent of Schools. This will be the start of my 5th year at BSUSD and I have been witness to the great achievements of this District.

I first arrived in Borrego at a time of extreme hardship. Under the direction of the previous superintendent Martha Deichler, I saw the finances, morale, and educational programs of the District make an outstanding recovery. It is my hope that through the efforts of dedicated parents, students, staff and community, we can continue to make our schools the best that they can be.

I have a strong belief in the benefits provided by public education; education truly is the key to success. My shared vision for the District is to provide an outstanding education, while at the same time providing opportunities to develop students into outstanding citizens who will contribute to the rest of the world.  

Our schools and community have so much to offer. We have a committed and hard-working staff. I look forward to working with each of you for the success of our students and community.

Borrego Springs Unified School District

New Mission/Vision Statement:

The District's Action Team came together and developed a new mission statement. This statement embodies our our vision to provide a quality education and prepare our students for the future. 

        "We are Borrego Springs Unified School District. As a small school and caring community, we work together to provide every single student a diverse and academically rich education. We aspire to produce graduates who have their own visions for the future, armed with strong values and the tools for success in college, career, family and community life."

District Goals:

The Board approved our district goals in 2016-17. The goals originated from three major sources: 1. Existing documents; 2. Board and Administrative interviews; 3. Parent, community and staff input. Many of these goals are also reflected in our district Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  Please take a moment to look over our goals for the year.
