Company Profile
The Turlock Unified School District began its initial school unification on July 1, 2004. Prior to its unification it was composed of the separately governed, but commonly administered Turlock Joint Elementary School District and Turlock Joint Union High School District. Other than being governed by a seven member Board of Trustees and all employees being on the same salary schedules, there was no significant change in actual operations or services. Because of previous common administration, there is a long standing tradition of close cooperation and articulation among the elementary, intermediate and secondary instructional programs.
