Superintendent Mark G. Sutton
Thank you for visiting the Central Unified School District website. As the 2016 – 17 school year comes to a conclusion, know that we are not only focusing on the needs of our students currently, but also preparing for a successful opening to the 2017 – 18 school year. We have a tremendously talented and dedicated team of professional educators who I am confident will remain focused on our primary goal of providing the highest quality education for every child.
We are very proud of the Core Values of the District and they stand as the foundation of what we truly believe as the advocates for the students of Central Unified. This set of beliefs will continue to set the tone for the many decisions that need to be made now and in the future related to program evaluation, personnel, finances, communication tools, etc. These core values will enable us to prioritize and speak openly regarding what we believe in and why. These Guiding Principles are:
- Belief: Every student can learn.
- Vision: Every student is prepared for success in college, career, and community.
- Mission: Every student will engage in rigorous, relevant, standards-based instruction in every classroom every day to ensure student learning.
- Core Values: Character, leadership, innovation, and continuous improvement.
As a district, we will strive to continuously improve in the area of student achievement and push forward to develop strategies to meet the needs of all students. Additionally, we will encourage students and the community to take an active role in their education and co-curricular activities in order to allow our students the opportunity to accomplish any goal they may have after they complete their high school education. The children of Central Unified deserve nothing less.

Foggy Day Protocol
On a daily basis, the morning supervisor checks the visibility on their way to work between 4:30 and 5:00 am. Upon arrival at the Transportation facility, she/he will contact our district spotters who are located throughout Central’s 88 square miles. They will give distance markers that correlate with the visibility in their area, which is logged. He/she will also check the NOAA website to confirm dew point and temperature throughout Central’s district. Using these methods, if the visibility is less than 200 feet, we will automatically go to a Plan A schedule (2 hour delay). This call is made by 5:30 am in order to share the information with the district’s students, staff and community.
To ensure the safety of all students throughout the district, a foggy day plan will be called if it meets these parameters. It may be extremely foggy in several areas, with no fog in others, but the call is made for the whole district.
There are several different types of fog and it can drop in extremely late or dissipate moments after a call is made, but the initial decision is based on the visibility at the time of the call. All of the district’s school bus drivers are trained professionals and they follow Board Policy, Admin Regulation 3543 (c), and Vehicle Code 34501.6 on visibility restrictions. Once a call is made, operation of the buses will be based on the driver’s discretionary authority if the fog rolls in at a later time.
Foggy day delays minimize the risk of being involved in traffic collisions with morning commuter traffic. Once a call is made for a delay, further delays could be called due to a continued lack of visibility. These updates are made by 7:15, 8:15 and 9:15 a.m. if necessary.
