Congratulations to Nora Gutierrez, Superintendent of the Tolleson Union High School District for receiving the All Arizona Superintendent Award for the Large Size School Districts.

Tolleson Union High School District is located in Tolleson, Arizona. The district serves 12,500 students.

They work together to develop the potential of all students. She has increased staff retention by over 95%.

She hired the first director of public relations for the district. She understands the need for the district to tell its own story and promote the hidden gems that were prevalent in her community. She has each school highlight their academic achievement and recognize their student and staff members.

Safe Return to School

We have been diligently working on plans to reopen schools this fall. Our first priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and their families. As a district, we are making decisions to ensure consistency and equity districtwide for our students. We continue to look at COVID-19 data and follow guidelines from the CDC and Maricopa County Health Department. Due to the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, the learning model options are tentative and subject to change due to federal and state guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, and their families.

Please take a moment to read Superintendent Nora Gutierrez's entire safe return to school letter below.

Hemos estado trabajando diligentemente en planes para reabrir las escuelas este otoño. Nuestra primera prioridad sigue siendo la salud y la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, el personal y sus familias. Como Distrito, estamos tomando decisiones para garantizar la coherencia y la equidad en todo el distrito para nuestros estudiantes. Continuamos analizando los datos de COVID-19 y siguiendo las pólizas del CDC y el Departamento de Salud del Condado de Maricopa. Debido a la situación cambiante de COVID-19, estas opciones son tentativas y están sujetas a cambios debido a las pólizas federales y estatales para garantizar la salud y la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, el personal y sus familias."
