SCUSD Statement on Resignation of Dr. Elysse Versher

Press release

Sacramento, CA - The Sacramento City Unified School District has received notification that Dr. Elysse Versher intends to resign from her position as Vice Principal at West Campus High.

Dr. Versher made complaints of racist acts directed toward her during her employment and the District immediately initiated an investigation into those complaints.  That investigation is nearly complete.  At this point, out of respect to Dr. Versher and the process, the District will not have further comment until the investigator’s final report is issued.  We expect that will happen soon. 
We appreciate Dr. Versher’s service to the students of our District.

The Sacramento City Unified School District is committed to providing an environment that is free of racism and harassment for students and staff.  We have taken steps to address racism on campuses, including anti-racism training for staff.  Sac City will not tolerate racist behaviors and we will continue striving to achieve racial justice.
