We, the Bellevue School Board of Directors, acknowledge that we can only affirm each and every student to learn and thrive as creators of their future world if each and every student feels safe in our Bellevue School District community and if we work to eradicate bullying from our schools.

To that end, and in support of our broader goal to ensure bullying has no place in Bellevue schools, the Board worked with the Superintendent to prioritize student safety as our first goal in both our Strategic and Annual Plans. Our commitment is further reflected in our governance and oversight work.

We are proud to support the efforts of our students, teachers, staff, and broader Bellevue School District community in promoting kindness, acceptance, and inclusion and in uniting against bullying every day and particularly on October 23rd for Unity Day.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
