  • Last night, the Board of Education adopted a resolution denouncing xenophobia due to fears of the COVID-19 pandemic. The resolution states, in part, “ Azusa Unified School District believes that we have a special responsibility to understand and intentionally work to eliminate racism in our curricula, our classroom cultures, and our relationship with our students, our parents/guardians, and each other because our collective future depends on it.” Here is a link to the resolution: https://azusa.ic-board.com/attachments/eeb49fdb-cfcf-4c70-8e85-b9a425d6d8fe.pdf 

We are all committed to respect, equity, and justice. We believe in teaching and modeling to our students the responsibility of every member of our society to treat all people with love and respect for our shared humanity and a deep appreciation for the diversity that enriches us. We stand in solidarity against acts of racism and inequitable treatment. We stand in solidarity with our Asian and Pacific Islander community. We are thankful to our staff for their support and solidarity. 

We will continue to reinforce our commitment to the study of and appreciation for the many cultures that form our world. We will continue to engage in restorative justice practices and anti-bullying education. We are committed to creating a school culture that denounces hate and racism in all forms and that fosters inclusion and respect among students and staff.
