Women in Power
Bullseye! Student-Centered Pedagogy
S.H.E. is Me! A Curriculum for Girls
What are school personnel required to do if they witness an act of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying against a student?
According to Ed. Code 234.1(b)1, school personnel are required to take immediate steps to intervene when safe to do so.
This applies to all students on campus or attending a school activity no matter their "actual or perceived...immigration status...disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics."
I think that covers all of our students! So let’s embrace our students for who they are, and make school and school activities a place where our students can focus on their learning.
UTLA will strike this Monday, Jan. 14th if an agreement is not reached with LAUSD.
Wear red this Friday to show support for our UTLA peers, and the students and schools they are fighting for.
