The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) seeks to ensure that everything we do District-wide—learning and teaching, strategic planning, hiring, professional learning, technology, operations and communications—considers diversity, equity and inclusion.
Dr. Nataki Pettigrew, joined the District in January 2021 as the Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer at Hamilton Southeastern Schools. Pettigrew, a parent of three children (two in the district), previously served as a Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Special Services Director, School Administrator, and ELA teacher.
In her new position, Dr. Pettigrew will continue to lead the development of HSE Schools’ inclusive practices and fulfill the district’s commitment to recruiting, retaining, and supporting a diverse staff and educating a diverse student body. Additionally, the Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer position, which was created in 2018, will provide professional development and training for stakeholders in an effort to improve an inclusive, supportive culture.
