Eastern Suffolk BOCES continually strives to develop awareness around issues of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity throughout the region. It is paramount to create a culture of open-mindedness and objectivity so that we can efficiently identify and root out structural or systemic bias that may exist within our agency and component school districts. Increased awareness of cultural and socio-economic diversity can be achieved, in part, by encouraging greater understanding and acceptance of the viewpoints and perspectives of all stakeholders, including students, and by eliminating implicit bias in hiring practices. We will work to ensure essential resources and access to instructional materials and professional learning opportunities are equitably available across all school districts.
