Superintendent's Message

A Thank You to Our Staff

     You have heard me say this far too often, but about 85% of the Redondo Beach Unified School District’s budget eats. Eats, at least in this case, means people. With about 1,000 school districts throughout our state, the 85% number is about average. So, in RBUSD, we are neither high nor low when it comes to our budgetary commitment to people. What RBUSD kids receive from the 85%, however, is nothing short of impressive.


     As you know, I personally interview each and every candidate being considered for a position in RBUSD. When 85% of your budget is consumed by people, shouldn’t the leader make darn-sure that new hires meet the higher standards that we demand here in RBUSD? A little more due diligence on the front side pays dividends on the back side for kids!


     The most important part of this message is a nod to the RBUSD staff. They are hard-working, caring, student focused, and incredibly giving of their time. I have been in this business since 1986 and I can assure you that our employees are extraordinary—each one of them. Our teachers, custodians, maintenance and grounds folks, secretaries, instructional aides, administrators, CDC staff members, and everyone else in this district genuinely make a difference in our learning community. Because of this, I ask a big favor from you—please thank them. I need to be better at this and I admit it. I continue to commit to you that I will model what I’ve asked you to do.


     Now, you are probably saying, “Why is he really saying this?” I’m really saying this because you/we have a “great gig” here in RBUSD. Let’s appreciate it more and exhibit that appreciation in words and action. If there is an issue, let’s deal with it… nicely. As I often share: hard on the problem and soft on the people. As the proud leader of the finest school district in the South Bay, I ask you to value one another and what we have built in our city for our kids.


     I appreciate and applaud our staff, students, and parent community. You are the best. Thank you!


Steven Keller, Ed.D.
