Dover Officials to Work with Center for Education Equity to Create Long-Term Plan for School District
DOVER — Superintendent William Harbron announces that the Dover School District will partner with the Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium/Center for Education Equity (CEE) to outline a long-term plan for the district moving forward.
CEE provides technical assistance and training to organizations like schools to ensure positive outcomes and educational experiences for students regardless of race, gender, religion and national origin.
Consultants Daryl Williams and Michelle Nutter from the CEE will meet with a select group of school and community members to outline goals for the district and ways to implement the plan over the next year.
During the first two meetings, the group will review what the district has done to date and what it hopes to accomplish moving forward. On the third day, the group will finalize the long-term plan and determine which services the CEE can provide to assist Dover in its mission.
The meetings will be held at the McConnell Fitness Center, 61 Locust St., on March 18, April 8 and April 29. The CEE partnership is one part of the school district’s ongoing efforts to enhance equity and inclusion throughout the district.
“The Dover School District’s hope is that we can move forward with the right plan and programs in place to prepare our students and teachers to support a society free of racism, prejudice and bias,” Superintendent Harbron said. “We are pleased to have a partner like CEE and look forward to drawing upon their experience and knowledge as we begin this process next month.”
