Superintendent's Message

Summer Learning
July 2016


Hello. My name is Matthew Duffy and it is my honor to be the new superintendent of the West Contra Costa Unified School District. As the newest member of the WCCUSD team, I look forward to getting to know more about you and your children as we start another school year.

Even though it is summer, many of us at the District office are working hard to prepare for the upcoming school year and supervise summer learning opportunities for our students.

Many families pass the hot summer months by taking vacations or outings to local beaches and amusement parks. While you are planning for summer fun, I also hope that you also prioritize summer learning for your children.

Students who stay engaged in educational activities during the summer months are especially ready for learning when school resumes in the fall. Continuing to grow over the summer and preventing that learning loss is an important step to ensuring that our students are prepared for the real world when they leave our schools.

As a father of two, I work hard to keep my children engaged in positive and educational activities when school is out. The Ed Fund, a District partner, publishes a summer learning guide where you can find plenty of information about available programs and services. Even though it is July, it is not too late to sign up for free or low-cost summer activities.

In addition to the educational programs and services available, the District sponsors a summer meal program that is available to all children 18 years of age and younger. I encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities for your children.

We all have a part to play in keeping our students engaged and taken care of during the summer months. I hope you will join me as we attempt to do that.
