What are the goals of the Harrison Equity Team this year?
The Equity teams continue to work with teachers to make instruction more responsive to diversity, and inclusive of various cultures. The teams also work to strategically implement professional development and school-based programming focused on diversity, anti-racism, and cultural inclusivity in teaching and learning in order to create a common language and set of expectations for the school community.
This school year, the Harrison Equity Team's goals include:
1. Coaching educators on equity, anti-racism and inclusion in the classroom.
2. Planning school-wide events to engage ALL students and staff in practices that create a safe sense of community.
3. Creating safe space and capacity for an increase in empathy, community, and understanding and respecting differences.
4. Collaborating on best practices in the area of equity and diversity for elementary-aged children.
