Certificated Administrator of the Year
Parent Involvement & Community Outreach
Jurupa Unified School District
A health clinic, two dental programs, and a team of traveling mental health clinicians are just a few of the “wraparound” services that Jose Campos and his team offer to students and families in the Jurupa Unified School District. Along with training parents to lead parent education programs and administering nutritional programs, more than 32,000 annual daily contacts are made with Jurupa Valley families to help support a “healthy body/healthy minds” paradigm. Jose’s drive to help students overcome health and wellness issues that might otherwise interfere with the learning experience has become a model for other districts across the state. Jose’s mission to launch a family health clinic through the school started when he recognized the dire need for free and low-cost health services as a principal at Troth Street Elementary School. Years of entrepreneurial leadership and a determined, innovative spirit has now blossomed into partnerships with Kaiser Permanente, Borrego Health, and many other community-based organizations.
