To provide a world-class education for every student, Fayette County Public Schools is committed to timely, deliberate, and unified action to remedy opportunity gaps, eliminate exclusionary practices and systems, and create a barrier-free learning environment. We recognize this requires strategic decision-making in both policy and governance to advance social justice and dismantle historical and social barriers that perpetuate inequities and prevent our students from reaching their highest potential.
As a district, we believe true educational equity requires:
• Inclusion: All learners are welcomed, accepted, and protected against harassment or discrimination in our schools as we celebrate the diversity of our students, staff, families, and community and teach our students to understand and effectively engage with people of different backgrounds.
• Access: All learners shall have an equal opportunity to actively engage in all academic and extracurricular opportunities.
• Process: All learners shall receive fair and just – but not identical – treatment and supports, and high-quality instruction that reflects the diversity of our students delivered by highly qualified teachers who are prepared and supported to meet individual student needs.
• Outcome: All learners shall have educational experiences that ensure achievement of high academic and social expectations.
