Building Equity, Driving Justice

In 2020, we began drafting a strategic plan to fundamentally change our school’s culture, perspectives, intentions, and actions. In May, George Floyd’s murder spurred a summer of civil unrest and we knew it was time for a profound change in our school. We accelerated our plan’s timeline, and the result is our Strategic Plan for Antiracism.

Lauren Eldridge, Director of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, introduces the Strategic Plan for Antiracism.
