Our goal with all of these efforts is to allow our teachers’ focus to be on what they entered our district to do--inspire students to have a positive and profound impact on their world.”
This school year, Arcadia Unified welcomes 27 new educators, including school counselors, helping carry out Arcadia Unified’s Board of Education goal to have at least one full-time school counselor at each school site in the district.
