Welcome Weed Elementary School.  My name is Alisa Cummings and I am the principal of this amazing school.   I was born and raised in Weed, attending Weed Elementary School and Weed High School. I have been in education for 15 years, eleven of those years as a middle school classroom teacher at Weed Elementary School.  I have a Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies, a Masters of Science in Educational Administration, California Teachers English Learner (CTEL) certified, and a Tier II Administrative Credential.  My community involvement includes coaching, basketball counselor for COS camps and high school camps, supporter of Weed athletic programs, a Weed Rotarian and involvement in community events.  My passion though is spending time with my family and supporting and following my children in their athletic and educational activities.  I have  three sons; Robert who is attending Multnomah University, Jake who is attending Palm Beach Atlantic University, and Aaron who is a junior at  Weed High School.  My husband, Jim Cummings, is self-employed. 

 My education philosophy is simple:  As educators, our first priority is the students we serve.  We must have enough passion and love for our students to be able to provide them with the best education possible.  This can only be accomplished through a collaborative approach between the educational staff, parents, and students, working as a team to provide a safe environment, support rigorous standards, and maintain open lines of communications and expectations.

The goal of education is to: 

  • Provide an educational environment where students are prepared with the learning experiences that lead to the basic academic skills and understanding techniques necessary for them to become productive members of society and life-long learners.
  • Ensure a rich curriculum to develop academically, emotionally, physically, and socially at their personal developmental level.  The educational environment should foster civic virtue; which includes self-worth, self-discipline, self-respect, respect for others, honesty, integrity, and the value and acceptance of cultural differences.
  • Provide students with competent, knowledgeable, and highly qualified teachers who demonstrate a passion and love for their students.  The curriculum that is being taught in their classrooms must be challenging, rigorous, and made relevant to students by providing comprehensive learning experiences in a safe, caring,  and nurturing environment.
  • Involve the parents in their child’s education.  The education of each child should be a reciprocal agreement between the parents and the school; that the guidance and instruction provided be made powerful by the partnership formed between home and school.
