Letter to East

March 22, 2017

 

 

Dear East High School Families,

 

As East Angels, we pride ourselves on our school’s rich diversity and strong culture of unity. We recognize that it is our responsibility to make sure each of our students feel respected and valued.

 

In a time of political divisiveness, we would like to remind our students and school community that incidents of discrimination and harassment are unacceptable and corrosive to our school culture. We take allegations of harassment based on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or religion very seriously. We will follow the district policies to investigate allegations of discrimination and harassment (board policies JB and JB-R-1), and respond according to our district discipline policies (board policies JK and JK-R) should we learn about hurtful language or actions.

 

I also want to reiterate the following important messages to our school community:

 

  • Our school is a safe place, and we honor and value the diversity of our students, parents and staff.
  • Bigotry, bullying and inappropriate behavior are not tolerated at East High School.
  • Our school, community, city, state and world are full of caring, compassionate and supportive people who are committed to equity and social justice for all people.
  • Education is the most valuable and powerful asset for creating a better future.

 

Please feel free to reach out to me at should you have any questions about our school’s policies regarding inclusivity. To help ensure our students and community are aware of our many efforts in this area, we have created a resource guide outlining our programs, services and supports.

 

In addition, we are planning the following steps in coming months – diversity dialogues, ethnic student group unity project and ninth-grade academy training in implicit bias and social media sensitivity. Please stay tuned for details.

 

Finally, in order for us to respond to concerns about discriminatory or harassing behavior, we must know about it. To report concerns, please reach out to me; text or call Safe2Tell.org (can be anonymous); contact the DPS family helpline at 720-423-3054; or reach out to Instructional Superintendent Sean Precious at .

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Andy Mendelsberg

Estimadas familias de la Escuela Preparatoria East:

 

Como Ángeles de East, nos enorgullecemos de la rica diversidad y sólida cultura de unidad de nuestra escuela. Reconocemos que es nuestra responsabilidad asegurarnos de que cada uno de nuestros estudiantes se sienta respetado y valorado.

 

En esta época de divisiones políticas, queremos recordarles a nuestros estudiantes y comunidad escolar que los incidentes de discriminación y acoso son inaceptables y nocivos para nuestra cultura escolar. Nos tomamos muy en serio estos incidentes de acoso por motivos de raza, origen étnico, orientación sexual, identidad sexual, discapacidad o religión. Nos regiremos por las normas del Distrito para investigar los alegatos de discriminación y acoso (normas JB y JB-R-1 del Consejo), y responderemos de acuerdo a las normas disciplinarias del Distrito (normas JK y JK-R del Consejo) si nos enteramos de que se ha incurrido en un lenguaje o actos nocivos.

 

También deseo reiterar los siguientes mensajes importantes a nuestra comunidad escolar:

 

  • Nuestra escuela es un lugar seguro, y reconocemos y valoramos la diversidad de nuestros estudiantes, sus padres y el personal escolar.
  • En la Escuela Preparatoria East no se aceptan la intolerancia, la intimidación ni los comportamientos inapropiados.
  • En nuestra escuela, nuestra comunidad, nuestra ciudad, nuestro estado y nuestro mundo hay un sinnúmero de personas amables, caritativas y comprensivas que mantienen un compromiso con la equidad y la justicia social para todos.
  • La educación es la herramienta más valiosa y más poderosa para la creación de un futuro mejor.

 

No duden en comunicarse conmigo en si tienen alguna pregunta sobre las normas de nuestra escuela sobre la inclusión. Para asegurar que nuestros estudiantes y la comunidad se enteren de nuestra variedad de iniciativas en esta área, hemos creado una guía de recursos, Spanish Resource Guide, que describe nuestros programas, servicios y apoyos.

 

Además, estamos planeando dar los siguientes pasos en los próximos meses: diálogos sobre diversidad, un proyecto de unidad sobre grupos estudiantiles étnicos y una capacitación para la academia de noveno grado sobre prejuicios implícitos. Pronto proveeremos más información.

 

Finalmente, para poder responder a sus inquietudes sobre las conductas de discriminación o acoso, tenemos que enterarnos de ellas. Para reportar sus inquietudes, pueden comunicarse conmigo, mandar un mensaje de texto o llamar a Safe2Tell.org (pueden hacerlo de manera anónima), comunicarse con la línea de ayuda para las familias de DPS al 720-423-3054 o comunicarse con el superintendente de Instrucción Sean Precious en .

 

Atentamente,

 

 

Andy Mendelsberg
