 Comentario público para la reunión de la Junta del 29 de junio de 2020 sobre el “presupuesto 2020-21”

Hola mi nombre es ________. Yo soy un [estudiante, padre, miembro de la comunidad, parent,etc] del Distrito de las Preparatorias en Kern. Yo estoy urgiendo que los miembros de la mesa directiva adopten un presupuesto para el año 2020-21 que recorte los fondos del departamento de policía de las Preparatorias en Kern y inverta en los jóvenes.  POLICÍAS NO PERTENECEN EN LAS ESCUELAS. Es tiempo de reimaginar la seguridad escolar, despenalizar estudiantes Afroamericanos y Latinos, y invertir aproximadamente $4 millones para:

  • Contratar consejeros, trabajadores sociales, psicólogos, médicos de salud mental y enfermeras adicionales.
  • Contratar maestros de varias etnicidades que reflejen la población estudiantil.
  • Implementar estudios étnicos.
  • Contratar practicantes de justicia restaurativa y eliminar a todos los policías de los modelos de justicia restaurativa e intervención y apoyo de comportamiento positivo. [agregar cualquier otra sugerencia para el presupuesto]

Por favor, ayúdenos a correr la voz y mandar esta información a otras personas.

PARENTS, STUDENTS, EDUCATORS, AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS MARCH FOR EDUCATIONAL JUSTICE IN KHSD

PARENTS, STUDENTS, EDUCATORS, AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS MARCH FOR EDUCATIONAL JUSTICE IN KHSD

On the evening of January 30th, 2020, a passionate group of concerned community members marched through the streets of Bakersfield demanding more resources and support for Kern High School District (KHSD) students. At a rally following the March for Educational Justice, parents, guardians, students, and teachers advocated for more counseling services, cultural celebrations, and diverse teachers to a crowd of fifty supporters in front of West High School. The demonstration took place before the final mandatory KHSD Board of Trustees Community Report Back Meeting, which the KHSD has been required to hold twice a year to report their progress in accordance with the 2014 lawsuit settlement. This lawsuit determined that KHSD’s discriminatory discipline practices targeted black and brown students and deprived them of their right to an education.

The Kern Education Justice Collaborative (KEJC) and community members continue to demand that the KHSD faithfully implements the agreements of the settlement to create a positive school environment and improve social, emotional, and academic outcomes for black and brown students.

YOUTH SURVEY

PARENTS/GUARDIANS SURVEY 

 Six years ago, parents and students along with civil rights lawyers with support from community organizations like the Dolores Huerta Foundation,  filed a lawsuit against the Kern High School District to force the district to end their discriminatory discipline practices that deprived black and brown students of their right to an education.

URGENT COMMUNITY ACTION IS CRITICAL

  • KHSD has failed to hire diverse teachers with only 3% black teachers, 17% latino, and 63% white. 
  • While suspensions and expulsions have gone significantly down, students are being pushed into continuation schools at alarming rates. Continuation schools don’t have the same types of supports and services that comprehensive schools have. 
  • Although African American students only make up 8% of the KHSD population, they have high rates of assistance at continuation schools. Example: Vista Continuation School has 14% African American students and only has a 36% graduation rate.
  • In 2018-19 At the continuation school Vista West, there were 21 Special education students, with only one special education teacher.
  • Bottom line: Black students continue to have disproportionate rates for voluntary transfers, involuntary transfers, and are still being suspended at 2-3 more times than their white peers.

SF School named for Dolores Huerta, raises funds to do even more.

SF School named for Dolores Huerta, raises funds to do even more.

From SF Weekly:

“Dolores Huerta Elementary School may be a new name for the Glen Park campus this year but they’re still working on living up to that identity.

The San Francisco Board of Education approved the name change in Augustbut murals, signage, plaques, and books for its community to recognize the full meaning of its new namesake costs money. In turn, parents on a name change committee launched a GoFundMe to raise $20,000 to fully honor Huerta, a longtime labor leader who co-founded the National Farmworkers Association with Cesar Chavez and coined the phrase “Sí, se puede.”

“Our school is where we want to teach students the power of voice, the power of presence, the power of being, the power of standing up for dignity and fighting for equity, embodying the life lessons and activism of someone like Dolores Huerta,” said Luis Rodriguez, Dolores Huerta Elementary principal, in October. “By adopting the name of a strong Latina leader, we also would like to send a message of empowerment to all our female students, particularly our female students of color.”
