This purpose of the Valley Central Community and School-Based Racial Equity in Education Committee to better understand and respond to the issues of racism that exist in society and at Valley Central. We empathize with the community and condemn hatred, injustice, and destruction at all levels.
Valley Central wants all children in our care to feel safe, valued and above all heard. As a district, we must all be committed to identifying and resolving racial differences in the experiences, education, and well-being of our students. Together, the school and the family must lead the change that will create lasting equity for all people in our community. We must support efforts that will give all of us the tools we need to combat racism, oppression, and hateful acts in all forms. Our staff and administrators continue to be trained in culturally responsive teaching in order for all of us to better understand and work with all of our children, especially our children of color.
Every student in the Valley Central School District needs to know that they are valued, respected, and loved.
