Twin Rivers Unified School District is providing two opportunities for you to give feedback and input regarding our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
Step One: LCAP Survey (for TRUSD Parents)
The purpose of this survey is to help our school district gain vital information to assist in meeting students’ needs. This brief survey has questions about academics, safety, and other important topics. (Your responses will be kept anonymous. This survey closes Jan. 31)
Step Two: LCAP Annual Review (for everyone with an interest in TRUSD)
Our LCAP Annual Review window is now open. Please provide input on the progress toward our goals. We invite all interested parents and community members to participate in this in-depth review and look forward to hearing your voice. (Your responses will be kept anonymous. This survey closes Feb. 10)
(Click HERE for more information on the LCAP web page.)

“Thank you TRUSD for the love ... we are so grateful and humbled by the gifts,” responded student Nani Poloai. “Maybe there really is a Santa Claus after all.”
The volunteers started their day at the Sacramento Food Bank where they picked up donations of fresh fruits and vegetables. Before deliveries began, the buses stopped by the district office to collect gifts for all members of the families that were on the routes.
The gifts were donated and wrapped by central office volunteers.
