San Carlos School District is committed to continuing our mission of educating every student in an inclusive and welcoming environment free from racism and violence. We also encourage our community to have critical conversations about race and equity and become agents of change.


The District programs, activities, and practices shall be free from unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying based on actual or perceived race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression; or on the basis of a person’s association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.  If you believe you have been subjected to discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying, you should immediately contact:
