Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement
In Provo City School District, we value diversity, equity, and inclusion of all employees, students, parents, families and the community we serve. The uniquely diverse population in Provo City School District is a strength. The intentional creation of supportive educational and social experiences for all is built on these premises:
- We firmly believe all students are capable of learning. It is the collective responsibility of Provo City School District’s community of students, staff, teachers, administration, and parents/guardians to support an environment conducive to learning and one that fosters mutual respect.
- Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion means that we dedicate ourselves to creating and nurturing an environment in which all people can thrive, regardless of race, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, political belief, physical or mental disability, ethnicity, socioeconomic level, age, or religion.
- We invite collaboration and teamwork from all community members to contribute ideas, perspectives, and experiences in order to cultivate a community of shared accountability and leadership.
- Our community-centered approach includes equitable distribution of resources such as funding, programs, policies, initiatives, and supports. These equitably allocated resources should address student and family needs and help ensure all students have access to high-quality education and extracurricular activities.
Provo City School District strives to be a place of support, safety, and understanding. As we collectively prepare students to contribute to our diverse community, we endeavor to foster a culture where everyone in our buildings feels safe, valued, and that they belong.
