A diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) statement is an organization's commitment to fostering diversity, equity and inclusion. The statement details the importance of DEI to the work of education for all stakeholders, including students, employees and community members. These statements include specific goals, tasks or areas of focus for the institution.
The process of developing a DEI statement for the district continues to be an on-going process.
- The process began with each school building completing a grade/department-level statement.
- These statements are being refined at the building level by the building visioning committees to produce building-level statements.
- We are currently engaging students and parents/guardians to share their thoughts and feedback in the process. To join us in the process of developing a DEI statement, please complete the anonymous survey linked here.
- The goal is to have a final version of the DEI statement completed and ready to share with the Board of Education by the spring of 2021.
