Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
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.
