Becoming a “Diversity Responsive” School (LA)

In today’s climate, how can schools actively connect the value of diversity to academic excellence? How do we ensure that our culture and programs support all of our students and promote academic success across the board? As we have moved from notions of “cultural competency” and “inclusion” to more equity-based practices, how do we make sure we are poised to adeptly address any issues of difference and equity that come our way?

Utilizing both research and proven school policies, we will examine the topics of social class, race, and gender identity/expression via case studies. We will provide both pedagogical and curricular frameworks that teachers and administrators can apply to their current work in schools. We will work in small groups as well as in division-specific groups to explore the best outcomes for each case study. Participants will leave with a set of guidelines they can relate to both challenges and opportunities present in their own school communities.
