Equity and Inclusion

In Hamilton Southeastern Schools we define equity as the concept of giving each individual what is needed to succeed within our global society. Cultural studies demonstrate that students need to feel identity-safe within educational settings in order to experience success. Identity-safe spaces affirm the strengths of students and allow for them to be their authentic selves. Given that research, assessment data, and qualitative studies convey that identity-safety significantly influences teaching and learning, student diversity challenges us to explore ways to bridge cultural differences and devise responsive practices that affirm the identities of each learner. Each student deserves a school where educators teach inclusively and dismantle barriers that prohibit students from being their authentic selves.
