Superintendent Matthew Duffy

Dear Community,

We kicked off May celebrating 515 Richmond Promise scholars from the city of Richmond, including 319 of our own from 10 high schools here in the West Contra Costa Unified School District at the annual Richmond Promise Scholars Celebration. Thanks to the Richmond Promise and Chevron the next generation of leaders will have guidance and financial support to achieve and exceed their college dreams.

The Richmond Promise is about opportunity and opening doors and supporting students to and through their educational careers. As the WCCUSD community, our goal is to ensure that every student in this District is afforded that opportunity to succeed at every level and at every school. The soul of the District’s Roadmap is built on that spirit.
