Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Groton Public Schools embraces policies and practices that ensure that all people—especially those who have been historically marginalized based on race/ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender, age, socioeconomic status, immigrant status, educational status, or religion—have equitable opportunities.  We acknowledge that systems of racial and economic injustice exist in our nation and community; however, as educators, we too recognize that we have the power to dismantle the practices, policies, and systems that perpetuate inequalities.  Thus, an integral component of Groton Public Schools’ mission is to cultivate an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusiveness.  As a response, we strive to foster culturally responsive teaching and learning practices to ensure ALL groups feel valued, actively engaged, and empowered.



April DPH Vaccine Update for Students (Ages 16 and 17) and Guidance to Finish Strong 

The Department of Public Health has issued an update on vaccine availability for students aged 16 and 17 who will be eligible to schedule a vaccination appointment as of April 1. The CSDE and DPH have distributed the “Finish Strong” document to serve as a reminder to districts that now is not the time to ease up on our implementation of mitigation strategies to help slow the spread of COVID 19. “Schools, Individuals, and families all have a role to play in protecting in-person learning for the remainder of the school year.” As we approach the holiday weekend and the upcoming April break, we want to be sure that all staff and families have the information they need to help us Finish Strong.
