Each year, National Women's History Month offers an opportunity to honor the legacy of women who have built, shaped and improved the Nation. Celebrated in March, this annual event recognizes how throughout American history, women of every race, class and ethnic background have made vital contributions, often in the face of discrimination and undue hardship. CVUSD is proud to recognize the accomplishments of women this March, and all year through.

The California Healthy Youth Act (CHYA) requires school districts to ensure that all students in grades seven through twelve receive comprehensive sexual health education and HIV prevention education. The Conejo Valley Unified School District is currently in the process of reviewing three different Health Curriculums that are compliant with CHYA. The goal is for the District to adopt a new Health Curriculum for implementation in grades seven through twelve, beginning in the 2021-2022 school year. As the District moves forward in the Health Curriculum adoption process, CVUSD family input is key. In the weeks ahead CVUSD’s Instructional Services team will host three virtual preview nights.
Now that all of our TK-12 Blended Learning students are back on campus for in-person instruction, I would like to address a concern that weighs heavy on my heart as the CVUSD Superintendent. Dating back to this past summer and throughout the course of this school year, myself, members of the CVUSD leadership team, and members of our Board of Education have been part of numerous meetings where concerns were raised about the use of the “N-word” being said on our school campuses.
I am deeply troubled by these on-going reports and I want to express to our community the importance of creating a safe and discrimination-free learning environment for all of our students.
