Celebrating and Appreciating Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Welcome to Equity Matters!

Equity Matters will highlight celebrations in Educational Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Achievement in all of our school communities while providing resources and supports for promoting excellence and equity for students, families, and communities.

Month of The Military Child

"April is designated as the Month of the Military Child, underscoring the important role military children play in the armed forces community. Sponsored by the Department of Defense Military Community and Family Policy, the Month of the Military Child is a time to applaud military families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make and the challenges they overcome.

The Month of the Military Child is part of the legacy left by former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger. He established the Defense Department commemoration in 1986."

Every year on April 22, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.

Race and Equity Resources

As race and equity issues continue to be at the forefront of the news, it's important to provide support in talking with students about race issues, anti-racism and cultural proficiency. The following are some resources to help.

Community Resources
