Message from Superintendent Dr. Curt Dubost
Welcome to San Miguel Schools. I came out of retirement eight years ago to serve as the Interim Superintendent and remain here for more as I believe so strongly in the quality of the education we provide to the children of our communities. I am very proud of our schools and welcome the opportunity to share with you why we feel we are small enough to be like a big family yet large enough to provide a wealth of services to kids.
First and foremost we have safe schools. While facing the challenges inherent in educating over 900 students in three very different school settings, we have relatively few serious discipline issues. The San Luis Obispo County Sheriffs Dept funds a full-time School Resource Officer for our schools to support us. In the classroom, we have a dedicated teaching staff that is committed to maximizing the potential of each and every student. The support staff also takes pride in our services to children and the appearance of our facilities. The community has supported us with a tax override bond that has funded new fencing, new fields and when needed new electives buildings at each site.
At each grade level, we are developing a "Theme" which aligns to our state curriculum and matches our strengths. Culminating student projects will be completed with a tech component that can be recorded digitally on a student's individual portfolio. At the end of the year there will be a corresponding culminating activity such as Science Camp, a train trip to Sacramento, and trips to local sites such Cal Poly, The Pinnacles, Missions, and the coast.
I would proudly send any of my eight grandchildren to San Miguel Schools, two of whom are sixth generation residents of San Luis Obispo County, and hope you will as well. My door is always open and I welcome your comments and suggestions.
