Protect Our Children From School Violence sign now

My goal, is to ensure a safe environment for our children and prevent student violence within our schools. This is a very big issue and it is not being addressed. I am told we have a strict zero tolerance policy but there has been nothing to done to support this statement. There is an Educational Code from where I had received my information; I feel that the following Educational Codes: E.C. 200. 201.(a)-(f), 48900.2b.r.(1)-(4)2q, has been violated by Linda Verde Elementary School and the Lancaster School District in Lancaster, CA. This district and school has failed to create and ensure a safe learning environment for my son. Due to the constant harassing and physical abuse by other students my son is now a victim of school harassment and bullies. The failures to enforce the zero tolerance policy as instructed in these sections listed below have given me no indication that school officials will resolve this issue. I would like further action taken to protect our children not neglect and ignore what is happening right under our noses. School violence can be prevented when proper action is enforced. Our children should not feel alone and helpless; they should not feel like they should govern themselves by retaliating or counter violence. We are here to listen, guide and protect them. Ensuring they become productive, conforming citizens, not deviant, hopeless criminals. Please do not ignore this issue we have within our school system.

According to the following Educational Codes: E.C. 200. 201.(a)-(f), 48900.2b.r.(1)-(4)2q, Linda Verde Elementary School in Lancaster CA. Has failed to create and ensure a safe learning environment for my son. Due to the constant harassing of my son and the failure to enforce the zero tolerance policy as instructed in these sections listed above. The following is a brief description of a few incidents that have occurred with no action take against my sons aggressors.
In April of this year I had received a phone call from my 9-year-old sons school. Linda Verde Elementary School in Lancaster ca. Mrs. Zapata the principal had informed myself that my son along with another child was being sent home. I asked why and was told he had shoved a student who had shoved him first. I arrived at the school very upset due to the constant harassing from three children whom also have others involved with the harassing. We are in a closed meeting, the principal and I. I inform her that I did not approve of her lack to protect my child from bullying and harassing children.
This particular incident my son was sitting with a friend talking. A female student had told him to shut up; he returns a no. She then starts to hit him repeatedly on the head antagonizing him to hit her back. A group of students form around my son and names like: wossie, pussy, wimp and cry baby, are being called. Another student approaches my son stating, I can kick your (a**) butt, and then shoves my son. My son then states, no you cant and shoves back. Then this student yells more profanities and threatens to kick my sons butt after school. According to E.C. 48900.2a: my son should not have been sent home. My son then goes to a bench and cries. A couple of female students who try to stop this went to an adult and he was escorted to the office. While we are there I ask my son in front of the principal why he did not come to the office for help, he states very quietly, because they are not going to do anything about
it. Her failure to react in an appropriate manner had pushed me to the point of crying, yelling and anger.
This is not the only incident to have happen. In the beginning of November of last year a student had brought a pocketknife to school and no suspension. At the end of November before my son went off track there was an incident where my son was knocked to the ground and kicked in the eye by a fellow student. This child had received a talk with a sheriff and sent home for the day. According to E.C. 48900 (r) 2.g: this student should have the minimum of a suspension. No suspension. A couple of months before that a student had punched my son in the eye. According to E.C. 200-201(a-f) my son should have been protected. He was given demerits only, no suspension and I was not notified. . This same student in the beginning of the school year had taken my sons homework holding it out of my sons reach. My son is yelling for it back, is ignored by a passing teacher. According to E.C. 201 (a-e) my son should have been protected. I had witnessed this personally. I had gone in asking why no one was stopping it. I got the answer. It is 7:15am your child should not be here until 7:20 am. Even though there were at least 10 unsupervised students with more arriving. I had called the district about a couple of these incidents with no results in student safety.
This petition is to gain the attention of our local and state officials, our children deserve to be protected while gaining an education. Children should not have to literally fight for an education, they should be instructed and guided properly. Please help create change with in our school systems, and demand our children be protected.
Thank You,
Leticia Mendoza Inuma
