Diversity, Equity Inclusion & Belonging

SVUSD has committed to honoring diversity and heritage of our students, staff, and community. For the 2022-2023 school year, we will be acknowledging various groups and celebrating them at our schools and at our board meetings.

Celebrations will look different at all schools and even at different grade levels. Some activities might include art, music, book studies, research projects, sharing cultural holidays and celebrations, and activities around campus.

Parents can find our DEIB Calendar Below along with resources for families to extend the learning in their homes:
