Dear Parents and Guardians,
At Hollywood High School, we care about the safety and well-being of our students, and are committed to creating safe, productive school environments so your child can learn and thrive for success. Our school’s climate focuses on safety, teaching and learning, interpersonal relationships, and building an environment of support and mutual respect.
As part of our commitment to creating safe, supportive school environments, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) promotes the “School Climate Bill of Rights,” which is displayed at all school sites. The bill outlines LAUSD’s overarching commitments to providing a positive, productive, safe school climate that gives our students the environment they need to learn and succeed.
The School Climate Bill of Rights is part of the District’s larger effort to transform our discipline policies from traditional approaches toward more restorative practices. These efforts include:
Restorative Justice (RJ): Approaches that build community and resolve student interpersonal conflict by getting to the root cause of an issue and repairing harm through respectful dialogue.
Alternatives to suspension: Alternatives to suspension for appropriate offenses to keep our students in class and on track to graduate college-prepared and career-ready.
Positive behavior interventions and support: Interventions that reduce suspensions, increase attendance, improve academic performance, and provide support from all school employees.
Thank you for your support of our efforts to create a positive school climate for every LAUSD student.
Dr. Eleanor Murray-Walker
Restorative Justice Adviser
