Working Group to Ensure Culturally Relevant and Responsive Education

Glendale Unified School District is convening a working group focused on providing culturally relevant and responsive education for all students. The group will be made up of students, teachers, school and district administrators and staff, parents/guardians, and community members.

Key areas of focus will include, but are not limited to, eliminating bias in curricula and educational materials; providing professional development to ensure culturally competent, anti-biased leadership; actively recruiting a more diverse workforce; monitoring student discipline data to ensure students of color are not disproportionately penalized; and continuing the use of Restorative Practices to build community, strengthen school culture, and repair relationships.

If you are interested in joining our working group, please complete a sign up form by July 31. Our first meeting will be scheduled in early August. Additional details to follow.
