Superintendent's Message

Dear LEUSD Families and Community Partners, 


I feel honored to have been selected by the Board of Education to join the Lake Elsinore Unified School District and serve as your superintendent of schools.  My commitment to you is to actively engage with our community and develop opportunities for all of us to work together.  As a collaborative team, we will all gain a deeper understanding of the district’s culture, including its strengths and challenges, while building positive relationships with internal and external educational partners.  


Over the next few months, I am excited to meet with our students, families, community members, and educators to gather feedback and input regarding your experience in the LEUSD.  This transition period is critical to creating a shared vision for the strategic work needed to effect positive, productive, and sustainable change. 


As part of my transition plan, I will:  

Develop a mutually respectful, positive, and productive relationship with the Board of Education 
• Foster a positive working relationship with the district and school personnel 
•Establish a positive, trustworthy relationship with labor association leaders 
•Build positive relationships with students and their families 
• Establish cooperative relationships with key educational partners in the community 
•Identify successes, gaps, needs, and opportunities for improvement 
• Develop a proposal to accelerate student learning and support student social-emotional well-being 


Our dedicated team is excited to support our students, staff, and community as we return on August 10th for the 2022-2023 school year.  Over the summer, our team has been working on many projects throughout our district to enhance our school community and student experience.  I look forward to sharing updates with our community as we approach the start of the year.     


I wish you all a safe and restful summer!  I am eager to learn more about this wonderful community, meet our families, and hear your thoughts about Lake Elsinore Unified School District.  


Best wishes, 

Ryan Lewis, Ed.D.
