Welcome to the Long Beach School for Adult
Just before Thanksgiving break, Superintendent Chris Steinhauser sent a note regarding concerns students expressed about their immigration status. Students were worried how their status or their parents’ status might affect them, their families and their friends at school. This week, our Board of Education adopted a resolution formally reinforcing the superintendent’s message of reassurance. Our schools will not participate in potential federal enforcement actions based upon immigration status, religion or nation of origin. We will do everything within the law to protect students regardless of their status. Our role as public school educators is to welcome and serve all students who arrive at the schoolhouse door, regardless of their situation in life. We embrace diversity as a strength in our schools and in our society, and we do our very best to meet each student’s unique needs. Our counselors and other staff will assist any students worried about any aspect of their future. The recently adopted Board resolution is included on the LBUSD website, under the Board of Education February 15, 2017 minutes. We will continue to welcome and protect all students. We will do everything in our power to prevent unwarranted intrusions or distractions that might interfere with the high-quality teaching and learning that happens every day in our schools.
