We believe it is our moral responsibility to welcome, celebrate and affirm the full spectrum and intersections of human differences in, and beyond our community. We will create a culture that celebrates advocacy and pursues justice for all, especially those from historically marginalized communities. We will practice risk-taking, and challenge one another to continuously examine systems of privilege and bias, and work collectively to confront and interrupt inequity in all its forms.

District at a Glance
The reality of the current national climate illustrates that there remains significant threats to the ability of schools to cultivate and sustain learning communities that are safe and supportive for all students. Prejudice, bias, hate and discrimination remain threats that require our vigilance and persistence to ensure that our core values are adhered to, and our mission is realized. This is our work. Stand with us.
