PS130 Equity Vision Statement

PS130 is committed to building an equitable school community that reflects our diversity of voices and experiences. We prioritize the work and practices necessary to cultivate a culture of inclusion, interdependence, and connection. Systemic injustices exist in our world and we believe that we have a responsibility to understand and address these injustices. Listening, reflection, and education are key elements in our pursuit to create a school that is equitable in regards to race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, and disability. 

Our goal of equity involves achieving the fullest possible participation for all members of our community. The ongoing work toward the achievement of this goal includes a commitment to building trust, fostering open and ongoing communication, examining and mitigating our biases, and experiencing discomfort and challenges. It also requires intentional and continuous reflection as well as proactive steps towards putting our principles into action each and every day.
