Core Beliefs

As we move forward, one of our goals is to improve upon our positive school culture where teachers love to teach and children love to learn.  In working towards this, we have had collaborative discussions in which we developed our Core Beliefs. Our Core Beliefs serve as a code of ethics or guiding light for the way professionals in this district will deal with discipline problems.  This is a living document that we will continue to have discussions around and will guide us in our daily decisions.

Dear GOUSD Parents and Students:


Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Gold Oak Union School District! The entire Gold Oak Union School District staff is looking forward to working with you as we continue to provide the best educational programs for our students.


I am thrilled to be joining the GOUSD team this year.  I have been an educator for 29 years with the last 11 as a school principal in El Dorado County. I look forward to the opportunity to be part of the Gold Oak School District.  Gold Oak and Pleasant Valley have wonderful programs where students are the center of all decisions.  As the new Superintendent/Principal, I will continue this focus and will continue to work to provide a safe and caring school campus where kids can learn and teachers can teach.  The academic program is strong at Gold Oak and I look forward to working with the staff to continually provide a challenging and enriching curriculum.


One of my favorite parts of every year is getting to know the students and parents at the start of the year. I look forward to meeting you in the days ahead.  With everyone working together, this will be an exceptional year for students, parents, and staff.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and call or email.
