DEIJ Committee and School Goals
Update the School’s diversity mission statement to reflect the School’s priority to develop and sustain an equitable and just community and learning environment.
Create a professional development plan for faculty, staff, parents, and Board members that supports the School in developing a common language and understanding of equity, justice, and inclusion.
Develop and implement a standardized data collection system to identify patterns of inequity for admissions, student achievement, and hiring and recruitment of faculty and staff.
Create a group for students to understand their roles in creating equitable and just communities.
Review the School’s curriculum through a culturally sustaining pedagogical lens to promote an environment where all students thrive, focusing on the assets students bring to the learning environment.
Assess the current admissions process, paying particular attention to outreach initiatives, ethnic and racial representation for enrollment priorities, and the yield of students of color.
