Mr. Sam Strube, Interim Principal 

Hello, my name is Sam Strube and I am happy to be joining the Tracy Independent Charter School community as the Interim Principal of TISCS. Twenty seven of my twenty eight years in education have been right here in Tracy. During this time, I have learned that caring for students, listening to parents, and supporting teachers are the keys to a healthy and successful school community. All of the staff at TISCS understand that parents and students alike need other options for our children’s education; therefore I am dedicated to working with the TISCS family to create a learning community that supports all stakeholders, helps our students discover and grow, and ultimately helps our students reach their fullest potential.

I am here to help you and your child succeed, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me at (209)830-3280 or sstrube@tusd.net.
