• During the 2016-2017 school year, the District partnered with Franklin and Brenda Campbell-Jones to provide training to the Board of Education, Central Office administration, building principals, and community members in the area of cultural proficiency. As you are keenly aware, as our District continues to become significantly more diverse, it is essential that all members of our school community gain a deeper understanding of cultural proficiency in order to ensure that our District’s diversity be clearly understood and celebrated as we move into the future. The first training session for the District/community-wide group was held on Feb. 3 and 4, 2017. A follow-up session was conducted on March 16, 2017. Following the training of the District-wide cohort, these trainings were extended to the school level, where school level teams were the participants.  School level team training occured during the spring of 2017. This training continues in the 2017-2018 school year, and is ongoing in the following ways:  
    • Building and District level teams report on progress
    • Analysis of suspension data in each school (each semester)
    • District-wide student leadership panel
    • Continued work with ERASE Racism (parent and student level)
    • Restorative practices as an alternative to suspension
