Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The Penfield Central School District is committed to ensuring that all students receive equal access to a quality education in a learning environment that is safe, welcoming and free of discrimination. The District defines Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as follows:

Diversity: Includes but is not limited to race, color, ethnicity, nationality, religion, socioeconomic status, veteran status, education, marital status, language, age, gender, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, mental or physical ability, genetic information, and learning styles.

Equity: The guarantee of fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all while striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of all groups.

Inclusion: Authentically bringing traditionally excluded individuals and/or groups into processes, activities, and decision/ policy making in a way that ensures equal access to opportunities and resources.
