Every student has the right to a safe school learning environment, free from harassment and disrespect. It is time to act now and make this a reality for All of our CUSD students.

Dear Coronado Unified School District Board Members,

We join InclusioNado to implore you to expedite the work of the Equity Committee to be responsive to the students, families and teachers who have asked CUSD since June 2020 to end racial and other forms of harassment of students in all of its schools.

Now, we ask you to form an End Harassment Subcommittee of the Equity Committee by March 1st, 2021. From the last Equity Committee meeting, we saw that there are Equity Committee volunteers willing to serve immediately and meet weekly if necessary.

The goals of the End Harassment Subcommittee will be to:

• Listen to students, alum, and staff to identify and understand key issues that have
allowed harassment to occur.

• Document their recommendations.

• Explore best practices used in other schools to address racial and other harassment.

• Make recommendations for concrete actions to be taken by CUSD.

A realistic timeframe for accomplishing this work with a small, committed group of volunteers is three months.
