Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Kit
In 2019, the Bushy Park Elementary Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee was formed. The DEI Committee’s purpose is to provide specific educational opportunities for every student and staff member in an effort to embrace diversity and acquire the skills, knowledge, and confidence to positively influence the larger community.
Special thanks to Christina Lawrence, HCPSS DEI Office and Fulton Elementary's PTA for their leadership and guidance. Please use and share the following resources to develop at DEI Committee at your school.
