Dear APS families, faculty and staff,
We, the members of the Andover School Committee, express our unqualified support of the recent statements by Superintendent Berman and AHS Principal Conrad condemning the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the racist posts by our own students here in Andover. This is a difficult time for our country and for our local community. It is particularly so for those who have suffered and continue to suffer from the racism and discrimination which sadly still exists in our society. Please know that we are fully committed to ensuring the Andover Public Schools are places welcoming to and safe for ALL. The recent social media posts make clear we have much work to do to make it so, and we are committed to doing everything within our power to achieve this goal.
