FUESD passes historic resolution to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Union Elementary School District Governing Board came together at its regular meeting Monday, Oct. 2, to pass Resolution No. 06-23/24, recognizing Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15, through Oct. 15.

The resolution was passed unanimously, highlighting the district's commitment to celebrating the diverse and rich heritage of its Hispanic and Latino community.

Fallbrook has a deep-rooted connection to Latin American history, dating back to 1769 when the area was first settled by Native American Luiseños and three Mexican families, including the Alvarados, the Picos and the Ocampos.

Today, the FUESD serves a diverse community of learners, with 64% of its students identifying as Hispanic or Latino, enriching the district with a myriad of cultural, linguistic and social contributions.

Ricardo Favela, clerk of the FUESD Governing Board, said he was proud of the historic moment.

"Our resolution recognizing Hispanic Heritage Month marks a milestone for our district in terms of realizing our values of diversity and inclusion. Fallbrook's Latin American history and heritage is a wealth of culture and knowledge which benefits not only academic achievement but social relations and student life. Let us celebrate and move forward together," Favela said.

Hispanic and Latin Americans have made significant contributions to the community and the country in fields such as education, science, politics, arts, literature and industry. Their cultural and linguistic assets enrich the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District and contribute to its strength, vibrancy and excellence.
