L.A. Unified’s Board President Steve Zimmer’s Statement on the Tragedy in San Bernardino

As we continue to pray and offer our support to the victims of Monday's tragedy at North Park Elementary, I am reminded of how sacred the relationship is between teachers and their students. Our thoughts, our minds and our hearts are with the families of Karen Smith and Jonathan Martinez, and with every family of every student at the school.

Let us commit to ensuring that trauma resources are in place at every school and that domestic violence awareness and education programs are in place until the day that we can, together, eradicate violence, like this tragedy, from our midst.
