Highlands Council is looking for parents, students and community leaders to be a part of the DEI committee. Cynthia Dickson, DEI Chairperson for Delevan Drive Elementary PTA has developed several initiatives to be addressed by the committee:
- A HC DEI Guide that can be shared across member schools/PTAs
- Cultural Interdisciplinary Calendar and Program that supplements class curriculum until holistic DEI curricula is achieved through legislation; local PTAs and districts may adapt to their local community needs
- Work to Implement a District-wide and eventually Statewide funded distribution to classrooms of
1. FAIR Act Collection of Book Titles and
2. FAIR Act Instructional Resources/Texts
- Publish a Glossary/Definition of Terms as well as DEI appropriate words/phrases to bring awareness to institutionalized racism within the English language and begin to move towards linguistic inclusivity.
