Culver City Observer -

LaRose's Letter To The Community


February 25, 2016

Dear CCUSD Families,

On Tuesday evening I shared the following announcement with the members of the CCUSD School Board.

Upon much reflection and deep consideration with my family, I have made the decision to resign as Superintendent for Culver City Unified School District effective June 30, 2016.

I do not make this decision lightly. However, I am confident that the time is right for me – both personally and professionally– to take a thoughtful and intentional break from the work I have always believed I was called to do. To be clear, this is not a typical strategic career decision driven by a new offer or position; rather, this is simply a personal, hopeful and uncertain leap of faith.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve with you. I consider myself fortunate to have been a part of such a collaborative and child-centered community. I am deeply committed to continuing our work in the coming months, with great intentionality for sustaining the focus and enthusiasm that currently fuels our district.

Thank you for your trust, support, leadership and encouragement. I believe our work together has been intentional, meaningful and impactful – and it is my sincere hope that this belief is shared by you, the CCUSD team and the community we serve.

It has truly been an honor to serve the Culver City community. CCUSD is a special place for many reasons – and the level of community support for our students and staff is unrivaled. Each day, the children and adults of CCUSD are provided opportunities and experiences that are made possible by a deeply engaged and generous community.

As noted, this is a very personal decision and I consider myself blessed to be supported and encouraged by my wife and daughters in making a choice of this magnitude.

I am personally and professionally grateful for the trust, faith and support you have given me. I look forward to the coming months as we strengthen and act on our shared belief - Success for All Takes Us All!
