I would like to invite you to join the Asian/Pacific Islanders School Board Members Association (APISBMA), a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of Asian American/Pacific Islander students as well as promoting equitable and quality education for all children.
With a high API students population in your district, there are great benefits as APISBMA members to address the special needs of those students.
APISBMA supports school board members as they navigate the increasingly complex challenges to equity and educational justice. We do so through newsletters, an active Facebook page for news and resources, special events and workshops.
Our purpose and goals are to:
Recently, APISBMA has put effort into ensuring a usable, accessible, and equitable California Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum. APISBMA has also responded to the current wave of anti-Asian hate and violence, publishing statements (#Stop Asian Hate, Anti-Asian Hate Resolution template) that local school boards may also use
I would like to share with you the comments of one of our members:
APISBMA focuses on the needs of API students, a group that is diverse and whose needs can be overlooked as API students comprise only 12% of the California student population. Connecting with and supporting APISBMA helps our district to address the needs of the API students.
When attending APISBMA events, I can also network with other school board members who share some of the same issues as our district. It helps to identify new ideas and best practices.
Isn’t the APISBMA school district annual membership fee $100? That makes it a real bargain.
We look forward to meeting and working with you.
