Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

Carlsbad Unified School District strives to provide every student an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment. To ensure that every student feels safe and welcome in our schools, and to ensure that every student has the opportunity to achieve at high levels, we are in the process of developing a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) Strategic Plan.

Staff anticipates bringing a plan for Board discussion in June 2023.

Carlsbad Unified is committed to equity, inclusion and tolerance for all students and staff.  CUSD Administrative Regulation 5145.9 states, “Students will be provided a respectful, inclusive, and safe learning environment that protects them from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, bullying, or any other type of behavior that is motivated by hate.”

We value and respect all of our diverse groups of students and we are committed to ensuring their success in school. We are committed to fostering an inclusive environment where every student, school employee, community member, and parent can expect to be treated with dignity and respect.

We do not teach Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the Carlsbad Unified School District.  If you would like to learn more about what CRT is and why we do not teach it in CUSD, please select the link below.
