The SMMUSD Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, January 24, 2017, at 5:30pm in the district office board room. In mid-January, staff attended a workshop updating school districts on Governor Brown's proposed budget for 2017-18. The special budget workshop on January 24 will allow staff to update the Board of Education on information presented at that workshop and progress of the District Budget Committee. The agenda for the special meeting is posted here. The next regular board meeting will be held on Thursday, February 2, 2017, at 5:30pm in the Malibu City Council Chambers.

SMMUSD Superintendent Dr. Ben DratiMessage from New Superintendent Dr. Ben Drati

I am humbled and delighted to join you as your superintendent. I have great respect and appreciation for the trust you’ve bestowed on me to serve as steward over the most important job in the world, aside from parenting, and that is the education of our children. I want to thank the SMMUSD school board members for the great care and sensitivity they exercised in selecting me through a rigorous and thorough interview process, which included a validation visit at Santa Barbara Unified School District.
