Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Peabody is proud to have established a partnership with Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities (VCIC) in early 2020, and we are excited about our ongoing work with this organization in the new year.
The focus of our work for the 2020-2021 school year has been nurturing an inclusive school community. This year, VCIC has facilitated quarterly workshops for our faculty and staff, provided strategic guidance to our school leadership, and will be offering virtual sessions for all Peabody middle school students focused on bias and inclusion.
In addition, we will be offering parent focus groups this spring in partnership with VCIC aimed at learning more about the experiences of families and students in our school community. We are grateful that VCIC is partnering with us in this important work -- we will have more information about focus groups coming soon!
