?At the Regular Board Meeting of the Athens City School District Board of Education on Thursday, April 15th, the Board of Education approved the following resolution in support of our Asian-American Pacific Islander (AAPI) students, families, and community members:
In light of the recent events involving crimes directed against the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, the Athens City Board wishes to express their support for our AAPI students and their families.
We are committed to building and supporting a school community that demonstrates the value of every child and celebrates their diverse identities. We fully condemn hate speech, racism, and all forms of discrimination. As equity is a driving force of our district mission, we will continue to strive to build a positive school culture that is both inclusive and nurturing for all learners.
The motto of the Athens City School District is “Every Learner. Every Day.”, and the Athens City School Board wishes to affirm their commitment towards the safety and well-being of all of our learners, which include our AAPI learners and their families.
