R-H 7-Day Equity Journey 2
Continuing the R-H Equity Journey: 7 More Days to Learn, Reflect, and Grow
One year ago, Rush-Henrietta gave employees, parents and guardians, community members, and Senior High School students an opportunity to participate in a 10-Day Equity Journey. Many of us took time to learn, reflect, and to grow in our understanding of equity and inclusion.
We continue to receive fantastic feedback about our original effort! Last year’s Equity Journey was featured prominently in OnBoard, the official publication of the New York State School Boards Association. A team of Rush-Henrietta administrators was invited to share our district’s equity and inclusion work at the New York State Council of School Superintendents Conference this past fall and will present at the National School Boards Association conference this spring. In addition, the Equity Journey was awarded a 2021 Blackboard Catalyst Award for Community Engagement.
Let’s continue the conversation! Rush-Henrietta is taking the next step by inviting you to take part in Equity Journey 2. This new experience is designed to share additional information and to continue to foster a respectful discussion about equity and inclusion.
Each weekday from March 9-17, participants will receive an email from the district. It will share a daily topic and relevant readings and/or videos, potential action steps, and suggested resources to help you further learn, reflect, and grow. Some resources are geared more toward parents and students; others are better suited for employees. Employees will get these daily messages automatically. Parents and guardians and students in grades 10-12 are invited to take part, as well. Simply click here to sign up.
Participants may wish to encounter the experience individually, with their child, with a colleague, or as part of a grade-level team or professional learning community. The choice is yours!
