Following this letter and prior to reopening the school your child/ren individual teacher will be contacting you regarding their classroom rules and expectations.  We look forward to seeing our sweet children on the 30th of March.

We'd like to take this opportunity to

 introduce 
Mission School's new

 Superintendent/Principal

 

Dr. Jinane Annous


Annous has been in education for 33 years, through which she taught every level of schools.  During her teaching career, Annous was included twice in the Who’s Who in America’s Teachers.  For the last 15 years, Annous has served as an assistant principal for four years at four different schools, a principal for seven years at two different schools, and as a director of curriculum and instruction and EL at Hemet Unified School District, after being a director for six years she served as the associate superintendent for educational services in Rialto School District where she supervised 29 schools and 13 directors and oversaw all the operations of Ed services. Under her directorship there was lots of growth and she was responsible for the LCAP along with the budget.  During her tenure as a principal, Annous closed the achievement gap between the English-learners and the other students and trained more than a couple thousand educators through SB 1969, SB 395, and AB 2913 all across San Bernardino County.  In her capacity as a director, she has worked on implementing the common-core standards through the use of the Rigorous Curriculum Design process.  Furthermore, she had revamped the reclassification process at the district, thus doubling the number of reclassified students yearly.  Under her supervision, the district now celebrates the reclassified students every year through a large ceremony hosted by the high school.  Moreover, Annous worked on designing the new math courses that align with the common core and submitted them for approval by the A-G portal.  Currently, all five new courses have been approved by the UC portal, making Hemet Unified a pioneer in this domain.  Lastly, Annous successfully implemented transitional kinder and high school 101, which is a foundation course for freshman and has trained all teachers in differentiated instructions using the Title III plan and funds to better serve the EL population.  Annous is an authority on working with diverse students; she has trained many educators on working with diverse populations and addressing and educating linguistically challenged students.  Annous has been an adjunct professor for Redlands University for the last 18 years, through which she has received the Excellence in Teaching Award.  She received the ACSA Diversity Award as well and completed the CO and the HR academies of ACSA.
