Leticia Bucio


My name is Leticia Bucio and I am honored to introduce myself as your new Principal for the 2021-22 school year! I am a Sacramento native and have worked for SCUSD for the past 16 years at a large high school as a Counselor then an Assistant Principal. It is with great pleasure that I am now serving you in the capacity of Principal.

During my time as an educator, I have had many different experiences that have shaped who I am as a leader. Consistent with my values and priorities, I want to work with you to ensure that the academic and social-emotional needs of every student are met in a safe and supportive school environment. To achieve this, I believe effective systems and productive relationships are necessary; attending to both will promote student success and ensure a positive working environment for us.

I am committed to leading, and participating in, intentional and meaningful work. I can’t wait to learn everything I can about Health Professions High School, including what our school offers as well as what our school can become in the future. We will celebrate our strengths and achievements together, and we will dig deep to improve upon our areas of potential growth together.

I will conclude with this: Building relationships based on trust, respect, and open communication is very important to me. As we start our journey together, please know that my door is open to you, I welcome input, and I value every opportunity to engage and collaborate. As a team, and with our students as our primary focus, I believe we will accomplish a lot in the years to come. I will be spending time visiting classrooms, as well as setting aside time to meet with you soon. I am very eager to meet you! Please feel free to contact me for any reason, even if it is just to say hello.
