Paramount Unified School District is a Safe Haven for Students of All Backgrounds


In our diverse community, we recognize that many students and their families are struggling with questions, concerns and fears about the recent immigration enforcement actions taking place across the state. We work very hard to make our schools safe spaces for learning for every one of our students.  This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring that a child’s race, religion, or immigration status do not create any barriers to their education.


On February 15, 2017, our Board of Education adopted a resolution indicating that our schools are a safe haven for all students and their families regardless of their race, religion, gender, immigration status, etc.  By passing this resolution, our district joins several others across the State of California that have already done so on the recommendation of State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.


The Paramount Unified School District embraces the diversity of its students, parents, and community, and views this as something that makes us stronger.  This resolution is just one sign of our commitment to all of our students, parents, and community members.

The Paramount USD administration is working with the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) to provide our district direction and information regarding the current Chromium 6 investigative process in the City of Paramount. The SCAQMD is the regulatory organization in charge of the air quality in the area, as well as the agency providing information regarding the current investigation.


The SCAQMD has indicated to our district that their action plan includes the placement of testing equipment in district property.   School district staff will work with the SCAQMD regarding location and timing of the placement and will provide access to their personnel so that they can complete the testing equipment placement.  Additionally, we have asked for information regarding their reports and findings that can be shared with our district community, and they have directed us to their web site, which includes web pages dedicated to information about their air monitoring activities in the City of Paramount, their meetings and processes:
