UTR Update – Willful Defiance Suspensions Position

Dear UTR members and community,

I wanted to share UTR’s official position on the policy proposal of banning willful defiance suspensions. 

Our Executive Board discussed this deeply and we hope that everyone will support UTR and the community by joining us at the WCCUSD School Board meeting on May 10th at 6:30 PM at Lovonya DeJean Middle School to support this proposal. 

We have been in communication with approximately 20 different community organizations that will be supporting our proposal to the WCCUSD School Board instead of the current one proposed by Board Member Phillips.

Support our kids and teachers! ‘Ban it!’ is a band-aid.

In Solidarity,

Demetrio Gonzalez
