As a learning community, it is our responsibility to provide a safe and inclusive environment for students and staff members to appreciate and celebrate our differences. Recent events in our country impacting underrepresented groups in our society have compelled us to reflect upon our responsibility as a learning community.
As a part of these recent events, we have learned the importance of listening more intently to learn from others’ diverse cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. As a part of these recent events, we have also learned that educating ourselves regarding cultural differences is ongoing and necessary.
To that end, Sycamore School District is committed to continuous improvement through experiences that represent multiple perspectives and acknowledge the importance of diversity as a part of the learning process.
We look forward to working with all stakeholders to facilitate conversations with a goal of all feeling they are seen and heard. Additional information and resources will be shared during this work.
