Superintendent Mauricio Arellano invites employees, families, and the community to participate in a valuable opportunity to discuss and share thoughts about the future of the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD).
Arellano will be hosting a series of Superintendent’s Forums, where input from SBCUSD partners will play a crucial role in shaping the direction of the San Bernardino and Highland educational system. These forums, which are scheduled for August 28 and 29 and September 6 and 12, aim to foster open dialogue, collaboration, and inclusivity as Arellano works towards creating better educational experiences for students. Superintendent Arellano strongly believes that engaging in open dialogue is essential for making informed decisions. That is why these eight forums, one from 4:30–5:30 p.m. on each date for SBCUSD employees and one from 6–7 p.m. on each date for SBCUSD families and community members, provide a platform for employees, parents, students, community members, and partners to share their unique perspectives and expertise.
For Arellano, who became superintendent of California’s eighth-largest school district in April, community engagement is a hallmark of his leadership.
“We encourage everyone to attend our forums as they provide an opportunity for open dialogue and collaboration,” Arellano said. “It is through these discussions that we can collectively address the opportunities facing our education system, share ideas, and work towards innovative solutions that will benefit all students.”
Those interested in participating in the Superintendent’s Forums can select the date and time that best suits their schedule, and registration is not required. Spanish interpretation will be provided at the community forums. If you plan to attend one of the Forums and require reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, please contact the SBCUSD Affirmative Action Office at (909) 381-1122 or email@example.com, preferably at least 10 business days before the event.
The first two forums are August 28 at San Gorgonio High School, 2299 Pacific Street, and August 29 at the District’s Professional Development Center (PDC), 4030 Georgia Blvd., both in San Bernardino.
