Theme Two - Diversity and Inclusion
Key to the success of students is ensuring that we respect diversity and create climates of genuine inclusion for students and staff alike, where equity arises from opportunity irrespective of each individual’s life or personal circumstances. In a diverse and inclusive society, or school district, differences are respected and unique needs are both understood and supported whether for a type of vulnerability or challenge or in service to unique gifts and talents. We recognize that all students have needs, and all students have gifts. It is our job to ensure that our schools mirror the diversity that exists in our classrooms by nurturing cultures where all are respected, their challenges are supported and their gifts are activated.
