Letter from the Board of Education
 
Dear Staff, Parents, Guardians and Friends of the Washington Unified School District,
The Board of Education is so very pleased to announce the appointment of Linda Chin Luna as the new Superintendent of the Washington Unified School District beginning July 1, 2015. Ms. Luna comes to West Sacramento with over 31 years of educational experiences and a deep commitment in becoming a part of our great community.
Superintendent Luna comes to us with a proven track record. During her tenure as Superintendent in the Millbrae School District, every school has received a California Distinguished School Award in addition to two Title I Academic Achievement Awards at one school. She has implemented $60M for modernization of facilities, increased local revenue through the Education Foundation and Health Care District, increased technology access for all schools and students, and successfully transitioned the district into 21st century teaching and learning along with the new Common Core Standards. She also served 26 years in the Stockton Unified School District as a classroom teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal, principal, director of curriculum, and assistant superintendent of curriculum, instruction and categorical programs assisting 52 schools and 38,000 students. Ms. Luna’s background and experiences will value-add to the traditions and outstanding staff already established here in the Washington Unified School District.
Known for her passion and deep commitment to equity and access for all children, Ms. Luna’s colleagues confirm her transparent, collaborative leadership grounded in student-centered decisions. During interviews with her staff, teachers, administrators, parents, city leaders, and board members, the words “Visionary Leader” were echoed over and over again.
Ms. Luna was home grown in the Central Valley attending the schools and district that she went back to serve for 26 years. She received her Bachelors in Music Education at the University of the Pacific and her Masters in Educational Administration at CSU, Sacramento. She and her husband of 33 years have two children who currently reside in Sacramento. “I am humbled and honored to be chosen as your Superintendent and serve in this beautiful community,” Ms. Luna stated.
We, the Board of Trustees, are excited to welcome Linda Luna to our wonderful school district. Please join us in welcoming her to our West Sacramento community.
 
Sincerely,
The Governing Board of Trustees
Washington Unified School District
