The Cincinnati Board of Education (“Board”) and the Cincinnati City School District (“District”) reject all forms of racism as destructive to the District’s mission, vision, values, and goals. The Board is committed to the following principles:
Establishing and sustaining a school community that shares the collective responsibility to confront, eliminate, and prevent actions, decisions, and outcomes that result from and perpetuate racism.
Embracing the racial diversity within our District while actively eliminating practices that perpetuate the racial disparities among our students so that all students have the opportunity to benefit equally referenced in the District’s Board Policy 2255 - Equity and Excellence in Education.
Acknowledging that racism is often compounded by other forms of discrimination, including, but not limited to, those protective classes referenced in the District’s Board Policy - 2260 Nondiscrimination and Access to Equal Educational Opportunity.
