The Five (5) P's

How Does YOUR School Measure Up?

Please write down the strengths and weaknesses of the five P's in your schools.  

There are a few questions that need to be asked: 

Where can improvements be made? 
What are action steps? 
Who are the allies?


1 - Policy: Enumeration of the school’s diversity commitment through mission, strategic plan, handbooks, websites, etc.

2 - Programming: Diversity training and programming for all constituencies (board, admin, faculty, staff, students, families, etc.).    Diversity and inclusivity curriculum.

3 - Practice: Consistent and meaningful revisit of policy and programs.  Climate assessments, proactive changes, and meaningful responses to incidents.

4 - People: Critical mass of people in all constituencies who are supportive AND active on all levels. 

5 - Pecuniary – Funding allocated in the strategic plan for supporting diversity efforts.  Time and Staffing resources allocated to making efforts a reality.
