Equity, School Support, & Community Engagement
Through intentional communication, collaboration, and monitoring, our department facilitates the focused efforts of our staff, schools, and community to create a world-class school district. We also help our stakeholders design and foster a culture that fosters value and respect for everyone. In addition, we address issues of educational equity and opportunity for all students.
Fayette County Public Schools shall commit to providing educational excellence for every student. Achieving equity requires strategic decision-making to remedy opportunity gaps and create a barrier-free learning environment. District leaders will reflect this commitment in policy and in governance. As a district, we believe educational equity focuses on:
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, including high-quality coursework that reflects the diversity of our students and highly qualified teachers who are prepared and supported to meet student needs.
Outcome: All learners shall have educational experiences that ensure achievement of high academic and social expectations.
To ensure that all students demonstrate growth and achievement, we must take timely, deliberate, and unified action to eliminate exclusionary practices and address historical and social barriers that prevent our students from reaching their highest potential.
