Brian Stephens

Dear TUSD Community,

It is hard to believe that we are one-third of the way through the school year already.  Despite the challenges of teaching and learning in a pandemic, we are progressing in educating our students.  I want to thank the students, parents and staff who are making the most of having students back on campus each day.  Working together students are once again learning and thriving in our classrooms.

Recently, Tracy Unified was one of just 22 districts nationwide to be chosen to receive federal funding from the Teacher and School Leader initiative.  This was an amazing honor that came after hundreds of hours of work to develop and write an award-winning grant.  The funds from this grant will be used to continue the work the district has been doing to bring high quality STEM education to each of our students.  Additionally, the grant will support the district as we work to diversify our staff to reflect the students that we teach.  

As we continue to move through the school year, please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance to you.  I can be reached by email at

Brian Stephens, Ed.D.
