EQUITY & HUMAN RIGHTS

The Equity and Human Rights Committee engages staff and the community at large in human rights and social justice activities to promote the tolerance and understanding of diverse cultures and sexual orientations for all public-school children and educators. As a committee, we are addressing issues that are facing the Chino Valley Unified School District. If you have any concerns or issues you would like to address, please email Chau Nguyen at actehr75@gmail.com.   Add your voice to help shape the future of equity in CVUSD.
