Dear Families of the Goleta Union School District,

My heart is filled with joy as I embrace my new role as your district superintendent.  I will strive to add value to our district community of nine elementary schools by inspiring a shared vision of excellence for all the children we serve.  I believe that public education is the greatest hope for our future, and I will do all I can to ensure that GUSD is the best example of that hope.  Our GUSD vision states the following:

Powerful Instruction
Purposeful Individualization
Productive Partnerships
Solid Evidence of Student Success

As we prepare to welcome our students back to school, I want to remind all GUSD employees about the power of belief.  When we believe in our students, we provide encouragement, confidence, and hope.  Every student who walks through our doors is a unique individual with strengths and endless growth potential.  We value our partnerships with families, and we want to foster that partnership to ensure that each child has a network of caring adults.  We have the incredible opportunity to build a solid foundation of learning while promoting curiosity, creativity, and collaboration.

I am eager to visit our nine schools.  To walk through classrooms, observe instruction, meet staff, and most importantly, connect with students and families.   

Let us join together to celebrate the joy of a new school year filled with great expectations for positive memories that will last a lifetime.  We are Goleta Union School District, and we are a family where no one is left behind or forgotten. 


Diana Galindo-Roybal, Ed.D.
