The Cottonwood School believes that the full education of a student depends and relies upon a diverse, equitable, and inclusive school environment. We value all lived experiences and integrate the voices of our school-community members, while also inviting insight from our larger community. We apply a culturally responsive approach to our teaching and our decision-making. We incorporate the histories, perspectives, and experiences of diverse groups of people who are traditionally left out of school curricula.
The current Equity Work Plan is intended to describe the set of strategic DEI initiatives occurring between spring 2022 and fall 2023. The work plan outcomes are based on feedback from the culturally responsive survey conducted with staff, the DEI team, and board members.
The DEI Committee, Board, and staff will share updates on investments, actions, and advancement toward the goals in the Work Plan by posting updates on this page. If you have questions about the contents of the Work Plan or work underway, please contact us at email@example.com
