I am honored to serve as Superintendent of the Flagstaff Unified School District and look forward to carrying out our district’s mission and vision. We have much to be proud of in FUSD - strong academic and extracurricular programs, committed and caring staff, engaged parents and strong community support.
It is a great privilege to have the opportunity each day as an educator to positively impact students’ lives, and instill the skills and inspiration each student needs to be on a path of success.
Michael A. Penca, Superintendent

Updated Make-Up Schedule for School Cancelations
The Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) has canceled school a total of twelve (12) days due to winter weather during the 2022-2023 school year. To account for students’ missed instructional opportunities, FUSD will use its designated make-up days, extend several early release days to full-days, and deduct time from its surplus instructional hours which are above the state’s requirements.
