Greetings DUSD Families,
On June 30, 2020, I was briefly introduced at our Board of Trustees meeting after they formally asked me to serve as our Acting Superintendent, pending a contract that was approved this evening. My first official day is July 8, 2020. I’m honored to have this opportunity to serve our school community and can’t wait to meet all of our students, parents, and families soon!
I’d like to start my relationship with you by sharing a little bit about myself. My name is Dr. Daniel Moirao and I’ve dedicated my life to the educational field for over 30 years. I’m proud to be a former teacher, speaking coach, administrator, assistant superintendent, superintendent, and state administrator. In 2008, I founded Dr. Dan Presents where I work with professionals and the communities they serve to disrupt equality to achieve equity for all students.
Dublin is not new ground for me. Two years ago I had the opportunity to serve as the Interim Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services for the Dublin Unified School District. I’m also proud to have multiple family connections to our schools. My wife retired as a kindergarten teacher from Frederiksen Elementary School, my daughter is a teacher at Amador Elementary School, and my niece is also a teacher in our district. My previous experience in Dublin was memorable, and I am excited to be part of this community and team once again.
Although it is the summer, I know many of you are closely following plans for reopening of the 2020-21 school year and are eager to know more about what this will mean for you. We want to assure you that we are continuing to work collaboratively with our partners in the Dublin Teachers Association and the California School Employees Association, as well as closely monitoring recent legislation that will guide our plans for students and staff. It’s important to understand that health and safety guidelines are constantly evolving and we are working diligently to develop an action plan. We expect to be able to share more details on our back-to-school plans soon. Stay tuned.
During the month of July, you will hear from me every Friday by email unless something more urgent arises.
We look forward to starting the school year with you!
Daniel R. Moirao Ed.D.
Dublin Unified School District
