Response to Community Outreach/Concern and Link to Jan 6th Board Meeting

January 11, 2021

Sierra Unified School District has received numerous emails and phone calls over the last several days with regard to the matter involving School Board Member James Hoak. We acknowledge these emails and calls and recognize your right to address this Board tonight. In addition to listening carefully to your comments, we will consult with legal counsel on how we may address the community’s concerns consistent with our obligations under the law. Although the District supports the rights of freedom of speech and peaceful assembly, it does not condone the violence against our nation’s Capitol, which occurred on Jan. 6, 2021. The District remains committed to instilling in our youth the values of tolerance, equity, fairness and respect for all in our community and nation.

Access to the Board Meeting will open to the public tonight at 5:30pm and will officially begin at 6:00pm. You can find the link on the home page, or you can access the meeting here.
