Commitment to Equity
The United States Department Of Education’s Office For Civil Rights recently published a Dear Educator Letter regarding increased harassment and violence directed at Asian American and Pacific Islander individuals. As always, our commitment to equity and inclusion for every learner, every day serves as our foundation. The cooperative’s policies prohibit harassment of students and harassment in the workplace, and students and families can contact any of our staff and administrators with concerns.
