Letter from the USC Administration & School Board

No Place for Hate Over the last week, our country has been impacted by the tragic events related to the death of George Floyd and other similar incidents of racial inequities. The Upper St. Clair School District stands in solidarity with our black and brown students, families, and staff members. We are committed to diversity, anti-racism, and positive support for our community. 

As a school district, we strive to ensure welcoming, inclusive, and safe learning environments for all of our students and families. We are committed to nurturing schools where each and every child is respected and valued as an individual regardless of skin color, gender, orientation, ability or disability, beliefs, or any other category. We stand together in support of our students and families and against acts of prejudice and racism. As always, we will continue to work to ensure educational equity for all students.

Our District has actively taken steps to educate students and staff members on racial differences, ways to combat hatred, and how to build an inclusive community. This spring all six USC schools earned the “No Place for Hate” designation from the Anti-Defamation League. While this is a significant step in the right direction of creating and nurturing a culture of inclusivity, we will continue to focus our efforts in this area as part of the district’s upcoming 5-year strategic plan.

We remain committed to working collaboratively with our students, families and staff to create positive change in the world.

- Upper St. Clair School Board and Upper St. Clair Administration
