Board approves Resolution to Remember and Honor the Holocaust

Los Angeles (Jan. 17, 2023) – The Board of Education approved today a resolution sponsored by Board Vice President Scott M. Schmerelson, and co-sponsored by all the Board Members in attendance, honoring January 27 as International Holocaust
Remembrance Day and recognizing the week of Sunday, April 16 through Sunday, April 23 as Days of Remembrance.

The District will also hold a moment of silence on Tuesday, April 18, 2023 in memory of the victims of the Holocaust and in honor of the survivors, rescuers and liberators. Relevant and appropriate instructional resources will also be made available to all P-12
educators to utilize on this day.

“We must continue to remember and honor the history and narratives of our Jewish residents, students and families,” Board Vice President Schmerelson said. “This resolution will allow us to guide our administrators and educators by providing them with
the necessary resources to address the history and the rise in hate and discrimination in our nation.”
