LGBTQ+ Support, Empowerment, and Resources

The El Rancho Unified School District Board of Education adopted a Resolution in support of Assembly Bill 493, authored by Assembly Member Todd Gloria. This Resolution encourages school districts to provide LGBTQ+ support and resources training to school site teachers and staff.

Schools have been instrumental in providing a safety net against the effects of discrimination and lack of acceptance for the LGBTQ community, which can result in higher dropout rates, lower economic success, higher rates of homelessness, higher rates of substance abuse and suicide. According to the 2017 National School Climate Survey, 82% of LGBTQ students report hearing anti-LGBTQ remarks, 7 in 10 report being called names or threatened based on their sexual orientation, more than one-third report missing at least one day of school because of feeling unsafe, and 49% report cyberbullying. This can negatively affect their academic achievement, as well as their mental and physical health.

School Site Leadership Change

The El Rancho Unified School District is aware that some community members have expressed concern regarding recent staffing changes in school site leadership. While transparency is always a priority for the District, we are legally prohibited from publicly discussing personnel matters in order to maintain confidentiality. Reassignment of administrators is a common practice in education, and in this case fulfills identified needs at various school sites. The District is confident that these administrators will continue to positively impact El Rancho Unified students in their new assignments and thanks them for their service and commitment. In the coming days, the District will reach out to the community at each affected school site to outline how we will recruit, evaluate, and seek community input on new school site leaders.

Although we understand that some might naturally be disappointed upon learning of these changes, we urge our parents, teachers, and staff to not let those feelings negatively impact our students’ daily learning. We urge all parents to have their children attend school as regularly scheduled.
