Taking action in anti-racism and anti-oppression work
June 8, 2020
As an educational community we have a responsibility to identify and describe racism and oppression and then work to dismantle it. The Upper Grand District School Board is committed to disrupting systemic racism and oppression in all of its forms. We will implement ongoing mandatory anti-racism and anti-oppression training for all staff, review our protocols and policies, including our hiring practices, and be fully transparent and accountable to all Upper Grand students, staff, families, and stakeholders in an ongoing manner.
We are also committed to making the work we do visible and transparent. We’ve launched our new Equity website, which contains our Three-Year Equity Plan (2019-2022), information on equity in the UGDSB, including anti-racism and anti-oppression work, and resources for staff and families.
We will continue to take action and to add information to this site as our work continues.
