Safe Haven School District

CVUSD is committed to the success of all students regardless of their national origin, ethnicity, religion, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression or economic status. 

On February 6, 2017, the Board of Education unanimously passed a resolution affirming that Castro Valley Unified School District as a Safe Haven School District. The resolution is consistent with existing Board-approved core values that state:

  • Student success is the responsibility of all.
  • We nurture the gifts and talents of all students.
  • Our schools are safe spaces for all.
  • Our commitment to equity ensures that our educational system is responsive to all students regardless of personal and social circumstances.
  • All students, families, and staff are valued and treated with respect and dignity.
  • ALL means ALL.

CVUSD has also partnered with members of the broad, diverse Castro Valley community to engage in the shared effort of supporting every student’s success in school and in the community. The Community Alliance and CVUSD will engage in a comprehensive approach to build partnership in our community. CVUSD will host meetings of the Community Alliance to develop and plan activities to support our diverse community. For more information, contact the Castro Valley Community Alliance at and view the flyer in
