Adopt-A-School Program

Our Mission: We will improve the education experience for students and teachers one school at a time for the benefit of the community. We will do this working with individual schools to supplement the existing infrastructure by bringing needed materials, expertise, and personnel through the use of community volunteers.

Greetings,

Your interest in, and support of, the Pima County School Superintendent's "Adopt-a­ School Program" is going to allow this program to thrive, and the work that you do in the school will benefit students and the district. The needs will vary by the schools that we are working with, but each are important, and your contribution is invaluable.

The first school that we have partnered with is John B. Wright Elementary School, located in the Tucson Unified School District. Wright Elementary is an OMA Gold school; a B-rated school by the Arizona Department of Education, and has recently adopted the AVID philosophy "to encourage our students to reach towards our school mission and college."

To become a volunteer for Wright Elementary School, you are required to fill out the TUSD School Volunteer Application Form, which you can send back to us, and TUSD can then provide you with obtaining a fingerprint clearance card at no cost.
Alternatively, you can go to any of the Pima County Sheriff's fingerprinting locations and for $10.00, you can obtain your fingerprints, which will need to be submitted to TUSD.

If you believe that you can dedicate the time to help Wright's students and are ready to start the volunteer process, or have any questions please contact Jeanette Velasquez at 520-724-2453 or at jeanette.velasquez@pima.gov. Thank you for your support of education in Pima County.

Sincerely,

Dustin J. Williams
