The Equity Leadership Team (ELT) of the Fairfield City School District presented its annual progress report on our diversity work at the December 20 meeting. Committee members updated the board on the work being done within each of the four guiding pillars:
I. Recruit, hire and retain teachers, administrators and staff of color.
II. Increase cultural awareness of all students, teachers, administrators and staff of the FCSD.
III. Increase community engagement and parental involvement.
IV. Increase student engagement and learning opportunities to emphasize the value and importance of the participation of diverse students in all curricular and extracurricular activities.
Members of the ACT-SO (African-American Cultural and Technical Scientific Olympiad) class at the high school shared feedback on the new class and projects they are working on for local, regional and national competition. Projects include sculpture, painting, photography, biology, dermatology research, playwriting, poetry and entrepreneurship.
The ELT is also expanding the scope of the plan to reach students with disabilities and special needs, economically disadvantaged students, and individuals with mental health needs. To view the presentation, please click the link above.
