Vision and Values

We value and find strength in our diversity. Learning is meaningful and relevant, connected with each child's individual needs, ethics, culture, and experiences and is linked with the world outside the classroom.

Function as a district/school advisory group for Black/African American parents/guardians and their children for the purpose of providing input for the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and participating in reviewing its effectiveness as it relates to the needs of Black/African American students.


Ensure the ongoing support and input for Black/African American students, families, cultural proficiency training, and awareness for all stakeholders through a process involving shared decision making. Partnership, Collaboration, & Voice.
