From the Board of Education
The Jordan Board of Education believes in the importance of every individual student growing and progressing while part of the Jordan School District. We recognize that the ability for each child to feel safe and included in their learning environment is a vital part of facilitating that growth and progression. We applaud the efforts of the Superintendent and his administration to ensure that every child feels safe and included in their schools. We specifically recognize the efforts of the Culture, Diversity, and Parent Outreach team to provide training and resources to assist our principals and teachers to create Culturally Relevant Environments.
Each member of the Board of Education had the opportunity to attend a training session and experience the training being offered on creating Culturally Relevant Environments. We as a Board endorse this training and encourage principals and teachers to seek out the Culture, Diversity, and Parent Outreach team for assistance and training. The Board is also interested in providing opportunities for our patrons and public to become familiar with the training as well. We will look for venues and distribution channels to allow for the public to participate in the training.
We are thankful for the countless efforts Jordan School District employees and students are making to ensure Jordan schools are safe and inclusive for all.
