Our Core Values

The Baboquivari Unified School District Governing Board believes in a high-quality education for all the students in our district. The board works each day to ensure that we have hired highly effective teachers and staff who care and are committed to the children of the Tohono O’odham Nation. Board members 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.
