Our Core Values
The Baboquivari Unified School District Governing Board believes in a high-quality education for all the students of their district. They work each day to ensure that we have hired highly effective teachers and staff that care and are committed to the children of the Tohono O’odham Nation. They work as a team to approve resources that will support teachers, principals, and departments with the necessary resources to be efficient and productive as well as ensure we are fiscally responsible to our public and the students we serve.
With this in mind, the governing board proudly embodies our vision, mission, core values, and purpose in their journey of communicating our focus on students first.
