About Desegregation at TUSD

For over thirty years, TUSD's desegregation efforts and activities have been under federal court oversight. In February 2013, the federal court adopted the Unitary Status Plan (USP) aimed at guiding TUSD towards eliminating the traces of past segregation and ending court oversight. A corrected version of the Unitary Status Plan was subsequently filed with the Court in November 2014 (to correct typographical errors only). The corrected USP is posted on this website. The USP outlines required activities in several areas:

  • student assignment (including boundaries and magnet schools)
  • transportation
  • faculty and staff assignment
  • quality of education
  • discipline
  • family engagement
  • access to facilities and technology
  • transparency and accountability
  • Early/Mid 70's: case brought by parents against TUSD
  • 1978-2009: TUSD operating under court supervision and stipulation of settlement
  • 2009-2011: TUSD declared unitary; district removed from court supervision
  • 2011: TUSD unitary status revoked; district placed back under court supervision
  • 2012: Special Master appointed
  • 2013: Unitary Status Plan and Appendices finalized and released; First Annual Status Report and 2012-2013 Annual Report released
  • 2014: Plans developed for implementing the USP projects; Second USP Status Report and Second Annual Report released; Corrected Unitary Status Plan filed with the Court
