A Diversity Recruitment MemberFramingham School District
Located in Massachusetts, FPS has a diverse student population and currently instructs students from over 70 countries who speak approximately 72 languages.
We are committed to offering the highest quality of educational experiences to all students through language development programs in English, Spanish and Portuguese that foster grade-level social and academic language proficiency and mastery of state content-area standards, while simultaneously building on and celebrating students’ cultural, linguistic and educational backgrounds, practices, and experiences.
The mission of the Framingham Public Schools, a system that understands and values our diversity, is to educate each student to learn and live productively as a critically thinking, responsible citizen in a multicultural, democratic society by providing academically challenging instructional programs taught by a highly qualified and diverse staff and supported by comprehensive services in partnership with our entire community.
Teach. Learn. Love.
We strive to afford all Framingham students the opportunity to learn in an educational environment where the diversity of our students is reflected in our professional staff. We are committed to respecting human differences and ensuring accountability of actions in an environment that provides needed resources to support the social-emotional, physical, and mental health needs of our students so that they are ready, willing and able to engage as learners in the Framingham Public Schools.
Our Workforce Reflects Our Students
We are committed to excellence for all students. A core value, embedded in the district’s philosophy and goals, is that “all children will learn”. Offering equitable access to education to all of our students hinges largely on providing the highest quality teachers in every school and classroom.
Diversity among teachers and staff undoubtedly advances the academic achievement of students. Compliance obligations establish the baseline; as a district, Framingham Public Schools are committed to achieving, developing and maintaining a workforce reflective of the rich racial, linguistic, and cultural diversity of our students. Framingham Public Schools aims to teach our children, and ourselves, to be culturally proficient and inclusive in order to live, learn, and work together in a vibrant and diverse world.
FPS is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment and strongly encourages applications from minorities.
My name is Bob Tremblay and I am proud to lead our school district as Superintendent of Schools. In Framingham, we believe in family and community engagement. We know that our schools are stronger when there is a partnership between our educators and school leaders and our community of families.
Welcome to the Framingham Public Schools!
In becoming a City, voices have been lifted from across the Framingham’s 9 districts and difficult topics around race, gender, and poverty – among others – have taken center stage in our public, ongoing school improvement discussions. Framingham students and their families continue to benefit as we raise awareness and advance solutions that enlist collaboration between elected officials, school and district leaders, and our strong team of educators and support staff. Inclusive policies and practices and equity-minded models of programming and resource allocation have been implemented to improve access for students and families in our school community. And we have only just begun.
The Office of Equity
The Office of Equity aims to ensure that the Framingham Public Schools is an educational and working environment unimpeded by bias or discrimination, where individuals of all backgrounds and experiences are welcomed, included, encouraged, and can succeed and flourish.
Who We Are
The Office of Equity, Diversity, and Community Development works to support students, families, and staff in issues of harassment and bias. We aim to systematically implement best practices and boldly innovate, with the goal of becoming a national model of broad participation, full inclusion, equity, and social justice in a diverse suburban school district. With this target in mind, we are proud to work with students, families, staff, and administration to ensure that all Framingham Public School schools and offices are welcoming and nurturing environments.
What We Do
We investigate allegations of bias or retaliation for previously reporting an allegation of bias, and offer resolution, when appropriate. We also provide trainings and counseling around equity issues. We are also the primary point of contact for employees seeking an accommodation for disability or religious reasons. Please contact us if you have any requests for an accommodation.
