Nondiscrimination Statement


The San Gabriel Unified School District is committed to providing a safe school environment where all individuals in education are afforded equal access and opportunities. The District’s academic and other educational support programs, services and activities shall be free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any individual based on the person’s actual race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. Specifically, state law prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in enrollment, counseling, and the availability of physical education, athletic activities, and sports. Transgender students shall be permitted to participate in gender-segregated school programs and activities (e.g., athletic teams, sports competitions, and field trips) and to use facilities consistent with their gender identity. The District assures that lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission or participation in District programs. Complaints of unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying are investigated through the Uniform Complaint Process. Such complaints must be filed no later than six months after knowledge of the alleged discrimination was first obtained. For a complaint form or additional information, contact the Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services at (626) 451-5400. The address is: 408 Junipero Serra Drive, San Gabriel, CA, 91776.

Homework Policies

Homework assignments are generally limited to approximately 50-90 minutes on any given night. When a student is absent, he is allowed to make up missed assignments or tests according to each teacher’s classroom guidelines. Students are responsible for arranging make-up work (class work and/or homework) with their teachers.

Parents may contact the Student Support Center to request make-up work for students who will be absent for an extended period.
