Sequoya High School has joined the 1,800+ schools nationwide who are making their schools No Place for Hate®. Sequoya’s entire student body recently participated in the kickoff event for this year-round program. School Social Worker Dr. Burger, Ph.D., LCSW-R presented “Exploring Bias, Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Discrimination,” and students and staff signed the No Place for Hate® Pledge. This program empowers students to challenge bias, and it is being infused into academics and activities at Sequoya. Students are currently working on research projects with the school’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity Coordinator as one of their No Place for Hate® projects.

The No Place for Hate® Program, created by the Anti-Defamation League, follows a four-phase approach. Schools are asked to form a committee, sign the pledge to be accepting of others and promote equity, assess the school’s climate to ensure that the whole community is heard, and implement activities that focus on inclusivity and community building.

ESBOCES Sequoya High School provides direct instruction and educational support to a diverse community of students in a cooperative setting through partnership with local school districts.  Sequoya’s dedicated staff utilizes the highest quality methods that maximize educational opportunities for all.  Sequoya’s students strive to reach their full potential, achieve success, and become empowered lifelong learners.
