Linda Angona Resigns From Board of Trustees

Upland Unified School District (UUSD) Board of Trustees President Linda Angona has announced her resignation from the board, effective June 30, in order to turn her full attention to teaching.

Angona, who is an elementary school teacher, announced her decision on June 25 – a little more than four months before her current term would have expired. She has served on the board since 2001.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it the opportunity to reflect on my priorities, and of prime importance during this time of upheaval in education is my teaching career. Since my students return on August 3, I want to turn my full attention to planning for the 2020–21 school year,” Angona said.

Message on Racism

We realize how difficult these past several weeks have been in our community as we’ve once again confronted issues of hatred and racism following the senseless deaths of defenseless African Americans across the country. We share your pain and grief and stand firm in our resolve to ensure that every individual has the opportunity to live his or her life in a world that is free of discrimination and violence. The Upland Unified School District serves a wonderfully diverse community, and we built our core values around equity, inclusion, compassion, and respect.
