JACQUELINE WOODSON - African American Student Services will bring award-winning author, Jacqueline Woodson back to TUSD again this year! On Thursday, March 13th, Woodson will speak at Booth-Fickett Magnet School from 6:00-7:30 pm. There is limited space available in the library, so please contact Desiree Cueto as soon as possible if you would like to attend. Desiree.Cueto@tusd1.org.
We are a comprehensive department whose goals support direct services to students, equip TUSD personnel to better meet the needs of all students, and empower parents to take an active role in their child’s academic success and school.
The AASSD improves the academic achievement of African American students and promotes cultural sensitivity throughout the TUSD community. Services are provided through individualized and specialized learning support, counseling and guidance, program development, cultural awareness and sensitivity training, community education, 1:1 and group tutoring & mentoring, and student advocacy. We work directly with exceptional education, schools, and district departments to meet the needs of students. While the department’s primary focus is African American students, no students are turned away or denied support; for example Saturday tutoring and direct classroom support.
Delivering Excellence in Education Every Day through Advocacy, Collaboration, Empowerment, Equity and Intervention.
We will ensure African American Students receive a quality education and are prepared to succeed in a global society.
