Partners in Your Child’s Future

Our Mission

The Hacienda La Puente Unified School District is dedicated to maximizing the talents, interests, and abilities of all its students, enabling them to meet the challenges and opportunities of a changing world. The district curriculum is based on the California State Frameworks. Classroom instruction is integrated, thematically applied, technologically integrated, and sensitive to the individual learning styles of students and the needs of the multicultural community we serve.

Our Guiding Principles

Our commitment to partnerships exemplifies our Board’s Guiding Principles. Our Board believes students, parents, staff and community have a shared responsibility:

  • We believe students, parents, staff and community have a shared responsibility for the establishment of a professional culture built upon dedication, honesty, integrity, pride, perseverance, collaboration, teamwork, and mutual trust and respect.
  • We believe students, parents, staff and community have a shared responsibility for recognizing the diverse learning styles and individual needs of our students and ensuring all students meet high learning standards.
  • We believe students, parents, staff and community have a shared responsibility to create a learning environment reflecting our community's diversity that is safe, clean, supportive and responsive.
  • We believe students, parents, staff and community have a shared responsibility to protect and preserve the short-and long-term financial well-being of the District.
Our Staff

The Hacienda La Puente Unified School District recruits the best certificated, classified and non-classified employees to conduct and provide support to its educational programs. Certificated employees are those employees who hold teaching and/or administrative credentials. Classified employees hold positions not requiring certification. Non-classified positions are those positions which do not fall under the certificated or classified service descriptions. However, non classified employees are handled by the Human Resources department.

Staff development is continuous throughout the year. Site staff development is ongoing, with many schools participating in a weekly early release day. District and site support programs are provided for teachers new to the district.
