Orinda Union School District
8 Altarinda Rd, Orinda, CA 94563

The Orinda Union School District is composed of four elementary schools; Del Rey, Glorietta, Sleepy Hollow andMore Wagner Ranch, and one middle school, Orinda Intermediate School. There are a total of 2,422 students at the five schools, with 131 full-time teachers assigned to teach them.

Like most California school districts faced by increasingly severe budget cuts, Orinda has relied heavily on the generosity of local parent groups and educational foundations to keep many of its key programs alive and well. The Educational Foundation of Orinda (EFO) has proven to be an essential funding partner with Orinda's K-12 schools, with the foundation underwriting many of the programs that keep Orinda schools consistently ahead of the curve.

Local parent clubs also provide significant funding in support of local schools. The district estimates that parent clubs will contribute more than $2 million in funding for school programs and services for the coming school year.

District Superintendent Dr. Joe Jaconette has informed parents of Orinda students that despite tough economic times, the district expects to protect several core values in the new school year, including the hiring of experienced teachers, and keeping class size low.

Superintendent Jaconette has also announced initiatives to strengthen the reading and writing skills of students as well as a district-wide technology plan. Currently, there are approximately 3.5 students per computer in the district, compared to a county-wide average of 4.5 students per machine.
