A Statement from Superintendent Dr. Shelley Adams

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, Community Members, and Stakeholders of Baldy View ROP,

The events of today’s news regarding the guilty conviction of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd continues the intense and emotional journey that we have collectively experienced.  Members of our community have wrestled with complex and painful emotions during the trial and will continue to do so. Though today’s guilty conviction on all counts may provide a semblance of justice for some, the circumstances of the events of the past year, this trial, the subsequent sentencing, and potential future legal proceedings  will undoubtedly reverberate around the country and the world, for years to come.

We must remain mindful and respect that each person will process today and recent current events through different and unique life experiences.  Furthermore, we hope that while everyone wants restoration, healing, and the prevention of further harm to anyone, in any way, the resolve remains strong for having much needed and uncomfortable discussions that address racism.

Baldy View ROP’s commitment to anti-racism includes offering information and resources parents and staff may use to engage in meaningful conversation around this complex and emotional issue.  We remain committed to supporting our students and providing resources to our staff to create and facilitate the space needed to process today’s verdict, the events of the past year, and those yet to come.

 

Please be well, take care, and be kind to one another,

 

Sincerely,

Shelley Adams, Ed.D.

A Message from Superintendent Dr. Shelley Adams

There is simply no rationale or justification for targeting fellow human beings. 

Racism is a reality for communities of color. And while every situation may not only be about race, when you are a person of color, race is always a factor. 

Realizing that incidents of harassment, intimidation, assault, and murder have increased during the pandemic because Asian communities are scapegoats for the pandemic is alarming. Hate and prejudice cannot be tolerated.

Baldy View ROP will continue to be a place where everyone is valued. We will continue to acknowledge and work through our biases, recognizing that diversity is our strength, and that our work must be achieved through a lens of equity and access.  Baldy View ROP is an institution who has no tolerance for hate. We stand with our students, staff, stakeholders, and communities of Asian and Pacific Islander descent. We see you. We hear you.

A statement from Superintendent Dr. Shelley Adams

January 6 is historically a day of celebration when a joint session of Congress counts and confirms the electoral college vote for president, formalizing the next president’s path to inauguration on January 20. It is a ceremonial part of the peaceful transfer of power from one administration to another.

 

We are a nation whose strength and prosperity lies in its ability to support diversity of thoughts and perspectives. Overwhelmingly, we are able to do so through acceptable displays of civil discourse.

 

We’re all still processing the images of individuals choosing to demonstrate beyond civil protest their dissatisfaction with this transition in ways that seem to threaten the safety and the security of our nation. The preponderance of civil unrest our nation is experiencing continues to be unsettling and disturbing and its impact will be felt for years to come. 

 

Remaining hopeful that the vast majority of Americans subscribe to the sentiments President-elect Biden described yesterday: “The renewal of a politics that’s about solving problems, looking out for one another, not stoking the flames of hate and chaos” is challenging, but so very necessary.

 

I hope you will join me in choosing to remain hopeful, embrace the light, and know that as a united nation committed to the common good, we will make it through. It will not be easy, but the effort is well worth the struggle. 

 

Take care and be well. 

 

Dr. Shelley Adams, Superintendent, Baldy View ROP
