SCUSD is Proud to Recognize LGBTQ+ Pride Month!

Did you know that the first Queer & Transgender Pride marches occurred one year after Stonewall? Early in the liberation movement, Pride was a protest. It was a time to bring visibility to the brutality and discrimination that with which queer and trans communities faced – and continue to face today. Stonewall Uprising was led by trans women of color like Marsha P. Johnson and Silvia Rivera that served as the catalyst for the Queer & Trans Pride movement we have today.

End-of-Year Message from Sac City Unified Superintendent Jorge Aguilar

Dear Sac City Unified Community,

The 2019-20 academic year was quite literally like none other. It has been difficult on our students, our teachers, our staff, and our community. This year has tested all of us to the core.

On top of closing out a very difficult year due to COVID-19, our awareness about the need to end systemic racism and violence has been heightened, as we stand with our community whose pain and anger have been rightly brought to the forefront by the senseless murder of George Floyd.
