Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Duxbury Public Schools
“All are welcome here” signs outside of Ms. Mullins’ classroom at DMS
Welcome to the DPS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion page. Our intention with this site is to provide timely information specific to updates, resources, and more relative to our work to provide obstacle-free access within our school system.
Our goal, and obligation as a public school, is to provide skill-based, obstacle-free access (EQUITY) within our school system to enhance our sense of belonging and respect (INCLUSION), for all members of the Duxbury community, to establish a learning environment that affirms our unique differences and fosters a respect for all viewpoints and inclusivity for all groups (DIVERSITY), including those that have been historically marginalized, through student engagement and empowerment.
We achieve our goal by engaging in a collaborative, collective, and embedded approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
What does “skill-based, obstacle free access” mean? What does that look like?
