The Council's Commission on Diversity and Inclusivity regional sessions will focus on enhancing the capacity of system leaders to foster school environments that meet the needs of all learners, promote cultural competence, actively recruit multi-ethnic and multi-racial staff, and to ensure voices from all groups of people within the school community are heard. Superintendents and their leadership teams are encouraged to attend the one-day workshop in their region, which entails expert presentations and time allotted for district teams to formulate plans to transform schools into places where the value of each student stands alone and where diversity and inclusivity is the norm. 

Participants will discuss the purpose and importance of the work and what cultural proficiency looks like; how to accept, support and celebrate the LGBTQ student; hear from a panel of the Eastern Suffolk Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity Task Force; and learn how to look at schools through the equity rubric.
