Policies and Practices In Support of Equity

The district has established goals and is taking steps to ensure that our Policies and Practices are supporting all our students.

Goals:
  • Review policies and practices through the lens of equity and inclusion and recommend revisions where necessary; collaborate with the School Committee to ensure transparency and accountability.
  • Develop a system-wide process for implementation, enforcement, and reporting of disciplinary matters.
  • Review the District Curriculum Accommodation Plan (DCAP) through the lens of equity and make any necessary revisions.

Action Steps:
  • Update student placement procedures in student handbooks to ensure consistency.
  • Review student attendance, discipline, special education referrals, and related areas of concern to ensure inclusive and supportive policies and practices.

Implementation:
  • By the end of the 2018-2019 school year, all student handbook language around the placement of students into classes, clusters, or levels will be reviewed; consistent language will be adopted by each school and placed in handbooks for implementation at each school.

The School Committee revised our policies pertaining to civil rights in March 2018, including policies on Non-Discrimination and Harassment, Equal Educational Opportunities, and Bullying Prevention. Please see current policies.
