Anti-Bias and Anti-Bullying Resources
Establishing and maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for ALL members of the AUSD community is a collective responsibility shared by staff, students, and parents/guardians. Our efforts to support all students in reaching their highest academic and personal potential begins with safety and inclusivity.
AUSD’s stated vision of preparing students to be responsible citizens must include instruction in how to embrace diversity, stand up to bias, and critically evaluate the events taking place in the local, national, and international communities. We have developed this page to provide teachers, staff, parents, and guardians with resources on talking to students about hate, bias, bigotry, and intolerance.
