Our Program

Worldwide, nationally and locally, humans are being challenged by forces of nature: fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and more. Close to home, we know the anxiety and uncertainty people feel when their world is changed overnight, such as the earthquake of Aug. 24, 2014. So our empathy for those in Texas, Florida, Mexico and other places is real and heartfelt.

 

Many in our community are uncertain and anxious due to the announced changes in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.  

 

Our Board of Trustees, as well as the County Supervisors and municipal councils, resolved in April 2017: “We aspire to be a model for inclusion and equity for all populations, including immigrants, refugees, and other newcomers and are committed to supporting the ongoing inclusion and long-term economic and social integration of newcomers, and to demonstrate values of unity and acceptance.”

 

We will continue to follow the policies put in place nationally, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, until new policies or laws are enacted, and remain committed to our vision of preparing all of our community’s children for college and careers in the 21st century.

 

El NVUSD se compromete a servir a todos los estudiantes

 

A nivel mundial, nacional y local, los seres humanos están siendo desafiados por las fuerzas de la naturaleza: incendios, huracanes y otros elementos. Cerca de casa, somos conscientes de la ansiedad y la incertidumbre que la gente siente cuando su mundo cambia de la noche a la mañana, como pasó con el terremoto del 24 de agosto de 2014. Así que nuestra empatía por aquellas personas que viven en Texas, Florida, México y otros lugares es real y sentida.

 

Muchas personas de nuestra comunidad tienen incertidumbre y ansiedad debido a los cambios anunciados sobre la normativa Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés).  

 

Nuestra Mesa del Consejo Directivo, así como los Supervisores del Condado y consejos municipales, resolvieron en abril de 2017: “Aspiramos a ser un ejemplo de inclusión y equidad para todas las poblaciones, inclusive inmigrantes, personas refugiadas y otros recién llegados, y estamos comprometidos con el hecho de apoyar la inclusión económica y social continua y a largo plazo de los recién llegados, y con el hecho de demostrar los valores de la unidad y la aceptación.”

 

Continuaremos siguiendo las normativas que se implementen a nivel nacional, inclusive la Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles, hasta que se promulguen nuevas normativas o leyes, y permanecemos comprometidos con nuestra visión de preparar a todos los niños y niñas de nuestra comunidad para la universidad y las profesiones del siglo 21.
