BAAPAC MISSION STATEMENT
As a culturally diverse community of the African Diaspora, we exist to empower the lives of all Black/African-American students, families, and community members by providing the knowledge and skills necessary to advocate for a high-quality educational experience. We act as a conduit of information between Black/African-American families, students, educators, school administrators, and the Board of Education. We support unique, culturally competent, educational models that recreate and reimagine academic and social-emotional learning for all Black/African-American students as global citizens in SMMUSD.
Provide a forum to hear the attitudes, opinions, and issues of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District’s Black/African-American families, and respond to those ideas by educating and informing parents of district resources, policies, and programs. Work to develop resources that allow families to more actively support the academic instruction their children receive and engage with educators and administrators in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District.
