DIVERSITY & EQUITY IN EDUCATION
2023-24 Campaign Partner
We believe that the Tangipahoa Parish School System exists to serve all the people as best it can. In order to do this, the school system believes that individuals should be accepted at their level of development and guided in such a way that they learn what is expected of them. We expect students to mature to their individual capacity emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially, and vocationally.
We believe that children are endowed with individual capacities and characteristics, and that our schools, to the best of their abilities, should provide students with the kind of education best fitted for them as individuals. We know that the needs of children are similar, but not identical, and we try to adapt our program to this knowledge.
As children become older and more mature, we try to provide them with the opportunities to make choices, as we believe that the making of wise choices is a necessary part of living in a democracy.
We believe, therefore, that those involved in education must make every effort to meet the needs of all students in granting them the fullest possible educational opportunities.
Our mission is Tangipahoa Parish School System will provide every student a high-quality education and a pathway to success.
Tangipahoa Parish School System, in partnership with families and community, will build a safe and innovative environment where each student will be career ready.
Our Culture, Diversity & Equity
The Tangipahoa Parish School System does not knowingly discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, handicap, or veteran status. This policy encompasses recruitment, selection, assignment, promotion, transfer, termination, compensation, training, and apprenticeship, and all other terms, conditions, benefits, and privileges associated with employment. This policy extends to the educational program and activities operated by the state, districts, and schools. Discrimination is specifically prohibited by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended, and Title 45, Subtitle A, Part 66 of the implementing regulations administered by the Director of the Office of Civil Rights of the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.
Respecting the authority of teachers is essential to creating an environment conducive to learning, effective instruction in the classroom, and proper administration of city, parish and other local public schools. To maintain and protect that authority, it is important that teachers, administrators, parents and students are fully informed of the various rights conferred upon teachers
Be Respectful. Be Compassionate. Be Great.
