On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, the Board of Trustees met during a regular board meeting. Here are some highlights from the meeting.
The Board of Trustees unanimously approved Resolution Number 03-12-19-02, "Celebration of Women's History Month." This resolution affirms the District's commitment to ensure that the contributions of women to the American tradition of inclusive, democratic and active means to reduce violence, achieve peace, and promote the common good are included in our curriculum and instructional program. History month is nationally celebrated every March.
The Board of Trustees unanimously approved this resolution recognizing the life and legacy of Cesar E. Chavez. The anniversary of his birthday is celebrated on March 31st. For more than three decades, Cesar E. Chavez led this groundbreaking organization by effecting social change through peaceful tactics such as fasts, boycotts, strikes, and pilgrimages; his union's efforts influenced and inspired millions of Americans, forging a diverse national coalition of students, middle-class consumers, religious groups, and minorities in a hard-won struggle to achieve fair wages, medical coverage, pension benefits, humane living conditions, and perhaps most important, dignity and respect for the hundreds of thousands of farmworkers across the country. Through this resolution, the Governing Board of the Luther Burbank School District celebrates March 31st as Cesar E. Chavez Day to honor his legacy, and asks that the Superintendent-Principal encourages students, staff, school administrators, teachers, and community members to implement service-learning projects based on his life, work, and values, and realize the full intent of the State-established Cesar Chavez Day of Service and Learning.
