SUHSD – Setting the Record Straight

Over the past several weeks, the Sweetwater Union High School District has been working through a very challenging situation with our budget. As you are aware, the district identified a shortfall in our budget for the 2018-2019 school year and immediately self-reported it to the San Diego County Office of Education. The district immediately began to fully deconstruct our budget and build it back up in a way that was accurate and truly reflective of our financial position.

With help from our employee labor groups, educational partners and community stakeholders, we were able to identify ways to balance our budget and do so in a way that was the least impactful to students and our classrooms as possible.

The purpose of this communication is to answer some commonly asked questions and to provide you with information that is honest, accurate, and provides as much clarity as possible.

As we continue through this process, we hope you will work with us to identify ways that we can better and more efficiently serve our students, while also being responsible stewards of our finances.

Bus Route Information

For those students who ride the bus, there has been some confusion about which bus you get on. The buses have two numbers on them; the bus number and the route number. You need to be looking for the ROUTE NUMBER which is located on a black sign next to the bus door. Here is a picture to help you. If you are unsure please ask the bus driver or Mr. Macias.
