To help guide this work, Forest Park has created an Equity Leaders PLC and has two teachers who are Chief Equity Influencers. Book clubs were held to begin to facilitate our discussion about systemic racism as a staff, reflect on unconscious bias and the ways it plays out in our classrooms and hallways. This work is central to our planning both this year and next year to create a school and culture that is equitable for all students and staff.
