Why create NUSD?
We are seeking a community-based school district that is more aware of, and responsive to, the needs of our Northgate-area students, teachers, and families. As it is currently configured, MDUSD has shown itself to be too big, too distracted, too unfamiliar, and often too uninterested in our community to provide the kind of leadership that is responsible and accountable to the citizens. We believe that with the right leadership from our community, our schools can provide better learning environments that will boost student achievement and make instruction more rewarding for our educators. We also believe that such leadership will foster greater trust and confidence in our schools among community members.
