Superintendent and Board Message - Supporting AAPI Community

Once again I write to you on behalf of the SCSD Board of Trustees with a heavy heart, as members of yet another community in our school district are victims of persecution and hate-filled violence. SCSD School Board members and I wish to firmly condemn these acts. We are alarmed at the rise of racist behaviors and attacks against members of these communities. Violent anti-Asian sentiment has been building for years and surged over the past year amid racist scapegoating that has blamed Asians for the coronavirus pandemic. We must stand together with our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and condemn all acts of violence at this time and continue to work together to end all forms of racial violence. Read the full message by clicking on the title link above.

Inclusions Counts Parent Listening Session - Nov 17

The San Carlos Elementary School District is partnering with Inclusion Counts to assess our current state of diversity, equity and racial-justice. In order to ensure our priorities, goals and actions related to anti-racism in our community are reflective of our diverse community voices, we’re taking time to hear from members of our community - staff, students and families.

On Tuesday, November 17 we invite parents to participate in a Community Listening Session/ Group Interview with our consultants at Inclusion Counts. During this session, you will be asked to share about your experience at San Carlos Elementary School District - and, if applicable, how you/ your family has been affected by racism, bias or intolerance. Our friends at Inclusion Counts have specifically asked to host these sessions within affinity groups.

Please RSVP by Friday, November 13.
