Education Team Annual Report – 2018

HCPSS Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Advisory Group

Indivisible HoCoMD is represented on the HCPSS Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Advisory Group by having an Education Action Team member’s voice amongst the stakeholders.

Tasked with gathering knowledge of current HCPSS practices and advising on systemic efforts to support Superintendent Michael J. Martirano’s Strategic Call to Action, this group is comprised of staff, students, and a wide range of community members.

The group is developing recommendations in 4 different areas: Student Voice, Curriculum, Workforce Diversity, and Professional Learning. Our member is on the Professional Learning subcommittee focusing on how HCPSS staff members are trained in the areas of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Each subcommittee will make 2-3 recommendations to the Superintendent at the end of the school year.
