The Conejo Valley Unified School District recognizes the month of October as Disability History and Awareness Month to encourage our schools to provide instruction on disability history, people with disabilities, and the disability rights movement. At the Tuesday, September 20, 2022 Board of Education meeting, Resolutions #22/23-16: Disability History and Awareness Month was adopted.
During the month of October, communities across the nation campaign to raise awareness and educate people on the long term effects that bullying has on children. The goal of recognizing National Bullying Prevention Month in the Conejo Valley Unified School District is to encourage parents, students, and staff to unite against bullying and share the message that no one deserves to be bullied.
In follow-up to last week’s message: CVUSD Forward: A Message on Transparency, what follows is additional information related to disinformation being circulated regarding CVUSD’s Teen Talk Health Curriculum and what is being taught in CVUSD classrooms.
As this school year continues forward, and with much disinformation about the Conejo Valley Unified School District currently circulating via flyers, word of mouth, social media and the internet in general, it seemed pertinent to share more widely a document that I briefly shared with the community at yesterday’s, September 20, 2022 Board of Education Meeting. [...] I sincerely hope that the information within this message provides a clearer picture of the requirements we, as a school district in California, must follow and our intent to adhere to these requirements as transparently as possible.
