Glossary of Terms
What does DEIB mean? Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging.
In Swampscott, we have rebranded this as our CORE work. Our CORE work focuses on the same set of values and goals as what is often referred to as DEIB: COMMUNITY, OPPORTUNITY, RESPECT, EQUITY
There are many words that may be new to many people that appear frequently in the educational research and discussions around DEIB/CORE. In an effort to bring clarify and common understanding to this important work, we have adopted the glossary of terms published by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health.
We welcome the participation of students, families, and staff in our CORE work.
If you are a student, talk to your building principal or assistant principal about ways to be involved.
If you are a parent/guardian, complete this Google Form and select "CORE" as your area of interest. Someone from the CORE Steering Committee will reach out to you to discuss your interests.
If you are a faculty or staff member, you are already involved through the work you do every day to create an ever more inclusive and welcoming school environment! You have already completed, or will complete in the near future, our CORE Foundational professional development. If you want to participate in the leadership of this work, contact your buiding principal or a member of the CORE Steering Committee.
