Fort Sage Unified School District
Superintendent and Principal

Dr Bonn, Superintendent

The Fort Sage Unified School District would like to welcome Dr. Chris Bonn as our new Superintendent/Principal. He has been in the educational system for 27 years. We are excited to see the changes that Dr. Bonn will implement to improve how we support our children. Dr. Bonn specializes in creating systems that provide continuity, sensibility, consistency, and functionality. His system’s approach will be instrumental in constructing a sustainable plan for student success. Be sure to stop in and welcome him to our district.

Welcome to the Fort Sage Unified School District!

The Fort Sage Unified School District is a Transitional Kindergarten through 12th grade school district. We have a TK-6 primary school (Sierra Primary School), a 7-8 middle school operated on the high school site (Fort Sage Middle School), and a 9-12 comprehensive high school (Herlong High School). The district also operates an independent study charter school (Mt. Lassen Charter School).

The mission of the Fort Sage Unified School District is to cultivate each student’s academic growth, as well as their physical, emotional and social well-being. We do this while also recognizing every student's unique abilities to think learn and create. Through encouragement and modeling, we challenge everyone to be respectful and compassionate. By providing an authentic, engaging curriculum in a safe environment, we are becoming reflective, lifelong global learners, planting seeds to change the world.

To help us reach these goals for every student the Fort Sage Unified School District has interventions and enrichment programs in place including after school programs, classroom instructional aides, an extensive special education program and small class sizes.

We always welcome the opportunity to involved parents in helping students reach their full potential. Parents partner with us through the Response To Intervention process and parent conferences to help students succeed.

The district curriculum is aligned with state adopted standards, delivered by fully credentialed staff. Staff development and training is on-going through out the school year. Many of our teachers also pursue additional courses and training on their own to keep up with educational trends and advances to help guide student achievement. 

At the high school, any 11th or 12th grade student has the opportunity to take Advanced Placement courses at the District's expense. Flexible course offerings meet the needs of changes and challenges that present themselves. Most high school classes are UC/CSU a-g approved.

Implementation of technology are embedded in all subject areas during the instructional day. Our computer labs are kept updated and we provide students daily access to computers.
