Document Instances of Bigotry and Prejudice

 

Purpose
To formalize a consistent process for reporting instances of bigotry and use collected data to inform programmatic changes where appropriate; to better understand the frequency of these incidents; to educate the community about the harm they cause and how to prevent and address them; to keep the goals of safety and accountability at the forefront of how the school responds to reported bigotry

Progress
  • Reviewed recently reported instances of bias for increased consistency in handling and response (Summer 2020)
  • Developed process to report bias incidents, evaluate information received, provide appropriate responses, and assess data trends to provide support or change structures currently in place (Summer 2020)
  • Created forms to allow students to submit incidents of bias against themselves or others and for teachers to submit incidents of bias against students (Summer 2020)

On Deck
  • Share forms and provide instruction to students and teachers (Sept 2020)
  • Continue to review and make recommendation-based improvements to the process (ongoing)
