This past week has been very difficult as we have unfortunately witnessed senseless and tragic deaths, violence, hate and xenophobia against Asian-Americans and individuals of Asian descent. We stand with our Asian and Asian descent students, faculty and staff during this difficult time. Calloway County School District denounces hate and racism in every form and provides a safe and supportive environment for everyone.
Please know that the entire school district continues to be here to support you. In addition to the support services offered at each school for students through the guidance office, employees can obtain assistance by contacting the Human Resources Department at the board office.
Members of our community can report incidents of illegal discrimination, illegal harassment, bullying, violence or risky behavior by going to our Calloway County School website and using our S.T.O.P. Tipline to report any incident of concern.
