Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

“It is important to remember that schools aren’t islands. When students enter our schools and classrooms, the outside world doesn’t shut off. Our students are learning about algebra and reading at the same time they are navigating complex issues in their communities and personal lives. Our job isn’t just to prepare our students academically – it’s our job to teach our students how to be critical thinkers how to express their emotions and feelings in a healthy way, and how to play an active and effective role in their community.”
