Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

APS is committed to a culturally responsive workplace which enables us to build and sustain a diverse workforce, champion inclusive curriculum, and to close achievement and opportunities gaps for all students and staff.

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strives to create and sustain a district-wide culture that universally uses culturally responsive teaching and equitable practices to ensure that all students — regardless of the schools they attend, their ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, native language, or economic status — have access to exceptional teaching and resources needed for each to continually experience high levels of academic achievement and social development.

The School Board Equity policy (A-30) includes governance in four key areas: Governance Equity Practices; Educational Equity Practices; Workforce Equity Practices; and Operational Equity Practices.
