Superintendent's Message

Dr. Gina Zietlow - Superintendent


Dear ABCUSD Community, 


I’m proud to serve as the Superintendent of the ABC Unified School District, where I’ve been a teacher, assistant principal, principal, and District leader. In my nearly 30 years as an educator, I’ve witnessed the impact that our schools have on the communities we serve. Our dedicated Board of Education, staff members, and families work together, focused on the “main thing:” student achievement. 


Our mission is to develop a community of lifelong learners, creative thinkers, and responsible individuals by providing innovative and high-quality educational programs in a safe and supportive environment. We work hard to live up to this mission each and every day by offering rigorous academic programs and student supports. 


ABCUSD schools are some of the most honored in the region, earning many national, statewide, regional, and local awards and recognitions. Our schools have been named National Blue Ribbon Schools, California Distinguished Schools, California Gold Ribbon Schools, Schools to Watch/National Model Middle Schools, along with many other awards and accolades. 


Our “every student, in every classroom, every day” approach to education ensures that every ABCUSD student receives the world-class education they deserve. 



Dr. Gina Zietlow
