SYSTEMS, Policies & PRactices
We continue to examine our systems, policies, and practices to ensure they align with anti-racist, and anti-bias frameworks. We seek to amplify the voices of historically marginalized people in our community and to embed our systems with consideration of the needs of all.
- Continue to review and update recruitment and hiring practices in order to increase the representation of Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) faculty and staff in our Park community. Ensure that their experiences and voices are centered and heard. Increase effort toward retention of faculty and staff of color, primarily through formal mentoring and professional development programming. (2020-2021)
- Evaluate financial aid systems, in particular, how families are supported with costs beyond tuition for supplies, trips, events, ASP, Academic Support, and other programming. (2020-2021)
- Review and revise as necessary, all of the School’s handbooks - for students, families, and employees - to ensure that all policies are aligned with the School’s anti-racist and anti-bias mission and guidelines. (2020-2021)
- Review Admission practices with particular attention to the recruitment of Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) students and families. Address the lack of representation of people of color in the admission process. (2021-2022)
