KERN HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT (KHSD) COMMUNITY FORUM FACT SHEET
SEPTEMBER 20TH, 2018 AT WEST HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM 7:00-9:00 PM

Why is this forum important?
Community members have the right to know about how KHSD is implementing discipline reform and to ensure they are providing progress reports with data. The District agreed to these steps to address the need to make sure all students are being treated equally and fairly.

About KHSD Lawsuit
A lawsuit was filed in 2014 by CRLA, GBLA, Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (Maldef) and Equal Justice Society on behalf of DHF, FIA, NBA, and individual students and families, to eliminate the discriminatory suspension and expulsion policies at KHSD. The lawsuit showed that students of colors were being suspended and expelled at an alarming rate compared to their white peers.

Settlement Agreement KHSD must hold 2 community forums each school year to issue reports on:

  • Alternative discipline practices
  • School discipline rates
  • School climate survey results
  • Trainings for staff and teachers

KHSD has agreed to a 3 year training plan for teachers and staff (including security and police) on:

  • Cultural competence
  • Implicit bias, racial anxiety, stereotype threat
  • Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
  • By the end of 2017-18 600 teachers, 400 classified staff, 125 school security officers, and 30 police officers were to be trained in PBIS & Uniform Complaint Procedures
  • 680 teachers in 8 sites were to receive training in classroom management.
  • KHSD has also agreed to recognize Black History Month and National Hispanic Heritage Month & hire ethnic staff.

Climate Survey Data 

Updates from SY 2016-17 to SY 2017-18

  • 20% of African Americans students reported they felt isolated/harassed at school within the last 60 days. (Compared to 14% of all students)
  • 19% of African Americans students reported feeling isolated/harassed at school because of their race, ethnicity, and/or nationality. (Compared to 8% of all students)
  • 25% of African American students reported an adult mistreated or disrespected them at school within the last 60 days (Compared to 16% of all students)
  • 10% of African American students felt unsafe because of their race, ethnicity, or, nationality (Compared to 3% for Hispanic 3% white students)

Based on KHSD 2016-17 Data African American (AA) Students are:

  • 19x more likely to be suspended
  • 2x as likely to be expelled
  • 4x likely to be voluntarily transferred 2x likely to be involuntarily transferred

Hiring Ethnic Teachers

  • In 2017-18 KHSD spent almost $1 million to recruit ethnic staff
  • KHSD did not meet their goal of hiring 2% ethnic teachers this year (Only hired 50 Hispanic teachers and 5 AA teachers)
  • 50% of hiring fairs were held in predominantly white cities

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
PBIS is a multi-tiered proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.

  • KHSD has been unclear about what support PBIS resources have been implemented
  • Examples of PBIS resources at other districts: art classes, student referrals to psychologists, program teaching prosocial behavior, on call support for teachers.
  • If PBIS is implemented correctly it can reduce aggressive behavior, reduce major disciplinary actions, improve school climate, reduce teacher turnover, and more!

DISTRITO DE PREPARATORIAS DE KERN (KHSD) HOJA INFORMATIVA DEL FORO COMUNITARIO
20 DE SEPTIEMBRE DEL 2018 EN EL AUDITORIO DE WEST HIGH SCHOOL 7:00-9:00 PM

¿Porque es importante este foro comunitario?
Los miembros de la comunidad tienen derecho a saber cómo KHSD está implementando una reforma de disciplina y garantizar que proporcionen informes de progreso con datos. El Distrito aceptó estos pasos para abordar la necesidad de asegurarse de que todos los estudiantes reciban un trato equitativo y justo.

Información de la demanda de KHSD
En 2014, CRLA, GBLA, el Fondo Mexicano Americano para la Defensa Legal y Educación (MALDEF) y la Sociedad de Igualdad y Justicia demandaron a KHSD de parte de DHF, FIA, NBA, y estudiantes y familias para eliminar las pólizas discriminatorias de KHSD de suspender y expulsar a los estudiantes. La demanda demostró que los estudiantes de color estaban siendo suspendidos y expulsados mucho más en comparación
con sus compañeros blancos.

Acuerdo de Solución
KHSD tiene que tener 2 foros comunitarios cada año escolar para reportar sobre:

  • Métodos alternativos de disciplina
  • Tasas de disciplina escolar
  •  Resultados de la encuesta de ambiente escolar
  • Entrenamiento para maestros y empleados

KHSD tiene un plan de entrenamiento durante 3 años para maestros y personal (incluyendo seguridad y policía) que enseñara:

  • Competencia cultural
  • Prejuicio implícito, ansiedad racial, las consecuencias
    de los estereotipos
  • Apoyo e Intervenciones de Conducta Positiva (PBIS)
  • Al fin de 2017-18, 600 maestros, 400 empleados, 125
    guardias de seguridad, y 30 policías iban a ser entrenados en PBIS y los Procedimientos Uniformes de Reclamos (UCP)
  • 680 maestros en 8 sitios iban a recibir entrenamiento en cómo manejar una clase
    KHSD ha aceptado reconocer el Mes de la Historia Afroamericana, Mes de la Herencia Hispana y promete contratar empleados de color.

Resultados de la encuesta de ambiente escolar del año escolar 2016-17 al 2017-18

  • 20% de estudiantes Afroamericanos (AA) informaron que se sintieron asilados/acosados en las escuelas entre los últimos 60 días
  • 19% de estudiantes AA informaron que se sintieron asilados/acosados en las escuelas por su raza, etnicidad, o nacionalidad
  • 10% de estudiantes AA no se sienten seguros por causa de su raza, etnicidad, o nacionalidad. (Comparado a 3% de Hispanos y 3% estudiantes blancos)

Basados en los Datos de KHSD 2016-17 Estudiantes Afroamericanos son:

  • 2x más probable de ser expulsados
  • 4x más probable que sean transferidos voluntariamente
  • 2x más probable que sean transferidos involuntariamente

Contratando Maestros de Color

  • En 2017-18 KHSD utilizo casi $1 millón para contratar a maestros de color
  • KHSD no alcanzo su meta de contratar 2% de maestros de color (Solo contrataron 50 maestros Hispanos y 5 maestros AA)
  • 50% de las ferias para contratar empleados fueron en lugares donde la mayoría populación es blanca

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports PBIS (Apoyo e intervención de Conducta positiva)

PBIS es un enfoque proactivo de varios niveles para establecer los apoyos conductuales y la cultura social necesarios para que todos los alumnos de una escuela logren el éxito social, emocional y académico.

  • KHSD no ha dicho claramente que apoyo y recursos darán para implementar el método PBIS
  • Ejemplos de PBIS recursos en otros distritos: clases de arte, referencia para psicólogo, programas enseñando conducta pro social, apoyo disponible para maestros.
  • Si PBIS se implementa correctamente, puede reducir el comportamiento agresivo, reducir las acciones disciplinarias, mejorar el clima escolar, reducir la rotación de maestros, ¡y más!

When: Monday, April 16th 2018, 7:00 pm

Where: 5801 Sundale Ave., Bakersfield, CA 93309

The Dolores Huerta Foundation (DHF) encourages the community to participate at the next Kern High School District (KHSD) Special Board Meeting. This meeting will be held on Monday, April 16, 2018 at 7:00 P.M. at the district Board Room at 5801 Sundale Avenue. Express public support for the adoption of criteria which will lead to the the redrawing of district boundaries which safeguard electoral fairness.

The purpose of this meeting is for the Board to receive input from the community on a new district map. This will be the third out of five special meetings the KHSD Board is scheduled to have in the coming weeks.

So far, DHF and Shelley Lapkoff, PhD, a demographer working with KHSD, have presented district maps to the Board. The Dolores Huerta Foundation continues to encourage the Kern High School District to provide a fair and just review for redistricting plan to ensure representation for all communities including South Kern, which currently has diluted voting power.

The foundation stresses the significance of aligning the creation of new trustee boundaries using the following best practices in order of importance:

I. Equal population among districts

II. Geographic compactness

III. Line contiguity

IV. Preservation of local political subdivisions

V. Preservation of communities of interest; and

VI. Protection of incumbents.

For more information on the maps already presented to the Board, please visit the KHSD’s website at https://www.kernhigh.org/apps/pages/boardpresentations.

For DHF’s maps, you may visit http://doloreshuerta.org/gis-geographic-information-systems/.

Your voice is needed to help us put an end to gerrymandering which dilutes the political influence of underrepresented minority communities especially in the areas of South Kern. Arvin and Lamont deserve representation on the KHSD Board of Trustees!

Through this process, the KHSD Board of Trustees will adopt resolutions specifying criteria to guide adjusting trustee area boundaries and provide instruction to demographic consultant on formulation of trustee area boundary adjustments based on criteria.

This is the first of five meetings in the redistricting process. The KHSD Board will vote on the new districts at the final meeting on May 14, 2018.

URGENT Call to Action: Kern County Board of Supervisors Meeting, Mon. 3/26/18, 1pm

URGENT Call to Action Show up Monday afternoon to let the Kern County Board of Supervisors know that we have waited long enough for justice and won’t be denied any longer! BOS must produce fair and just redistricting maps for Kern County!

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS – COUNTY OF KERN

1115 Truxtun Avenue Bakersfield, California

Special Meeting Monday, March 26, 2018 1:00 P.M.

In 2011, the Kern County Board of Supervisors drew up a redistricting plan that was struck down in a recent decision. According to U.S. District Judge Dale Drozd, it was not “equally open to participation by Latino voters,” as mandated by the Voting Rights Act.

We are concerned that the board will fail to act quickly on this judgment, in an effort to delay implementation until 2020. We need the community to come out strong at tomorrow’s board meeting to voice support for immediate implementation.

Please read more about the court case in the following article Judge: California county’s redistricting diluted Latino vote by Sudhin Thanawala Associated Press Feb 23, 2018

Call to Action: !Si Se Puede on #GivingTuesday!

Call to Action: !Si Se Puede on #GivingTuesday!

We hope you will consider supporting the Dolores Huerta Foundation for #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, to empower farmworker and low-income families in rural parts of the Central Valley to become thier own advocates in improving their lives and the lives of their children.

Donate today to support the community organizing work of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

Your generous #GivingTuesday donations will strengthen our programs: making a real impact and transforming our communities.

For example, for only $5 a month you can provide nutritious meals for 10 parents (and their children) attending an organizing training. Parents gain the skills necessary to navigate the school system, challenge proven discriminatory discipline practices, and advocate for their children to ensure they receive the quality education all children deserve.

A donation of $10 a month pays the rental costs for a hall where we hold community forums to educate the public on critical issues such as DACA, immigrant rights, public safety, education and health policy and much more. Elected officials are often invited to hear directly from their constituents. DHF hosts these gatherings monthly in five rural communities: Arvin, Lamont, Woodlake, Lindsay, and Sanger.

A generous gift of $25 a month covers travel expenses for group of 10 to 15 youth to participate in a statewide leadership development camping trip where they connect with other young “changemakers” and strategize, learning how to become their own powerful advocates in advancing youth rights and impacting local and state policies.

It would mean a great deal to me, and the communities we serve, if you could support our DHF #GivingTuesday Campaign.

Thank you for your continued commitment to ensuring that our communities have the skills and support they need to organize for equality and justice.

¡Sí Se Puede!
Dolores Huerta
President

P.S. Use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to show your support on social media after you make your donation and to encourage your community to do the same.
