New CSBA briefs examine AAPI student experiences; how districts can address student needs

In recognition of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, CSBA has released a pair of “Asian American and Pacific Islander Students in Focus” research and policy briefs. AAPI Students in Focus: Demographics and Enrollment Data” discusses the importance of disaggregating data at the local level to identify student needs. There are wide variations in the academic, economic and language acquisition needs for different AAPI communities that can be hidden when looking at the group as a monolith.

AAPI Student in Focus: Experiences During the COVID-19 Pandemic” examines the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes since the pandemic began and shares how the pandemic has disproportionately affected certain AAPI communities. For example, while Asian Americans have the lowest case rate of any racial or ethnic group in California, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders have a case rate of 10,735 per 100,000 and a death rate of 219 per 100,00 — both the highest rates in the state. The brief also examines how these factors and the rise in hate crimes against people of AAPI descent has contributed to a larger proportion of AAPI families who are hesitant to return to in-person instruction. Read the briefs »

Don’t miss CSBA President Dr. Susan Heredia speaking at the Asian Pacific Islander School Board Members Association’s June 14 event on addressing the needs of AAPI students in fall planning. Several CSBA materials released this month will be part of the required reading for attendees who will discuss what they have learned in breakout rooms and start a draft action plan to bring to their LEA. School board members and administrators are invited to attend. Register here »
