Superintendent Jane Shamieh

I am honored to serve as Superintendent of Schools of the Vacaville Unified School District. We serve over 12,500 K-12 students in this amazing community of Vacaville. As your Superintendent, my goal is to ensure that all students are safe and that high quality instruction is delivered daily.

My priorities for VUSD are:

  • Building on the academic achievement and success of all students and preparing them for college and careers. Our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) details funding allocations as well as actions and services we will provide to support achievement of all students. VUSD has ten Career Technical Education pathways for students as well.
  • Choices and options for all students. Not all students are the same nor do they learn the same. We strive to offer as many options and choices as possible to provide individualized learning experiences. We have established two new schools that offer more options for students: VUSD’s first K-8 school, Sierra Vista K-8, and the Ernest Kimme Charter Academy for Independent Learners. VUSD also has educational programs that provide opportunities like Spanish immersion, parent cooperative learning, college credits, advanced learning and adult education.
  • High standards and expectations for all employees. I believe in recognizing the successes of staff and building a cohesive team dedicated to serving all students. I enjoy sharing the success of staff and students at Board meetings- please see the links to board presentations below. Also, please enjoy our Staff Appreciation Video.
  • A safe, welcoming and healthy environment that foster student learning on all of our campuses. See our Student Services department which shows the system of supports available for students. A healthy environment includes good food, which is a priority for our Student Nutrition department.
