ESUSD Establishes Graduate Profile Speaker Series; Volunteers Welcome

ESUSD wishes to engage parents, business partners, and community members in contributing to our students’ learning opportunities through the District’s new Graduate Profile Speaker Series. We are building a speaker network that will allow for mentoring, guest speaking and/or video-conferencing opportunities for interested individuals to share expertise about how they demonstrate ESUSD’s Graduate Profile competencies through their careers in order to inspire and inform students.


To prepare students for jobs of the future, ESUSD implemented its Graduate Profile in 2019. The Graduate Profile outlines the cognitive, personal, and interpersonal competencies that ESUSD believes students should possess when they graduate from high school. This profile will help guide and align our educational practices to help students achieve the profile competencies identified. It provides a clear visualization of priority goals for teaching and learning that can be easily communicated to students at all grade levels, parents, faculty, and staff to align our collective efforts. ESUSD used the International Society for Technology Education Standards, as well as insights gleaned from business/civic leaders through focus groups, to initiate the conversation and development of its new Graduate Profile.

The ESUSD Graduate Profile Competencies are:

  • Empowered & Continuous Learner
  • Creative & Critical Thinker
  • Competent & Confident Communicator
  • Global Collaborator & Leader
  • Responsible, Self-directed & Resilient Individual

As future educational opportunities arise to utilize the Graduate Profile Speaker network, ESUSD principals and educators will reach out to those individuals that have volunteered to be a part of our Speaker Series and make arrangements for specific speaking engagements.


ESUSD’s Graduate Profile provides a really clear picture of ESUSD’s mission, what we do, what values we embrace, and what process we use for developing our students. We are pleased to provide an opportunity for parents, business partners, and community members to engage with students of all ages by sharing your experiences and professional expertise as part of the new Graduate Profile Speaker Series. We look forward to hearing from you!
