School Closures

School facilities in Tuolumne County will remain closed for the remainder of the 19/20 school year. Distance Learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 School Year will be in effect. It is important to understand we are not ending the school year and we are continuing the essential work of teaching and learning for all Tuolumne County public school students.

Putting Children First

These amazing volunteers prepared and assembled over 1600 meals this week to ensure our students were fed during the school closure. Additionally, all students received a personalized work packet to keep them current and prepared for the next grade. The staff at BOFGUSD is dedicated to putting “children first”!

We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

The Big Oak Flat-Groveland Unified School District established in 1990,  is a small rural district that operates two necessary small high schools and a K-8 elementary school. Total district enrollment is approximately 305 students of which 205 attend Tenaya Elementary School, 47 attend Don Pedro High and 53 attend Tioga High.

The District follows the Tuolumne River from the Northern entrance to Yosemite National Park down to the Lake Don Pedro area, a distance of over 60 miles and encompassing 678 square miles. The district serves the communities of Groveland, Big Oak Flat, Moccasin, and part of the Don Pedro area. We have excellent community support and have a dedicated staff of teachers and classified employees.

There is a full-time principal at Tenaya, and teaching principals at the two high schools. As much as our student numbers allow, all schools participate in athletic programs. Teachers take students on multiple field trips to expose them to events and locations outside of our rural area. The high schools take advantage of on­line learning through the local community colleges, and most students graduate from high school with some college units.
