San Lorenzo Unified School District Reviews

San Lorenzo Unified School District has great potential. The culture and community in our district is incomparable. We are diverse like no other, and come together in times of need. Our teachers have a great passion and are very hardworking. They all truly love their jobs and will be there for you if needed. San Lorenzo’s one fatal flaw, is the administration. Our budget is incredibly small not only because of state laws, but the administrations decision to cut more of our budget to accommodate a much larger security budget. If San Lorenzo’s administration was as passionate about quality of education as the teachers, we would be a five star in my book.

The teachers in San Lorenzo school district are amazing and working under extreme hardship. The administration has hired high price individuals that justify their positions by creating more work for the teachers. The teachers are already overworked and underpaid. They create more tasks for them to do each day when they can't finish the tasks they already have. The children need more assistance than ever before and are not getting help at home. Instead of creating more tasks that they can't accomplish perhaps more help for the teachers would be productive? Teacher's aides would be a great place to start!
SLZUSD is another average school district but is very diverse in it's student population, though not with the teacher population. There is a lack of communication between administration and the students that at times can be problematic.
