About the Committee

STSD recognizes the importance of creating an educational environment that is inclusive of all learners.   The STSD Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee has created a plan of action. To best serve STSD, our team has divided our efforts into 7 sub-categories. The categories are as follows; Mental Health, Disabilities, LGBT and Gender, Race and Marginalized Groups, Student Voice, and International/Immigration. Members of the D.E.I. will focus on resources, current events, opportunities for PD and any other relevant information worth sharing in these designated areas. 

What is Equity?

Ensuring that every learner has access to the educational resources and rigor they need at the right moment in their education across race, gender, ethnicity, religion, language, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, family background and/or family income.

What is Inclusion?

Inclusion is defined as engagement within a community where the equal worth and inherent dignity of each person is honored. An inclusive community promotes and sustains a sense of belonging.
