Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) plays a fundamental role in our schools by helping to create a safe learning environment for all students. According to Terri Roberts-Leonard, DEI Officer at Carmel Clay Schools, Diversity includes both visible and invisible characteristics (age, culture, learning style, etc). Equity is about providing every student what they need in order to learn best. Inclusion is creating an environment that empowers people to fully participate in a community where they are respected and supported.  

A small group of parents, funded by outside money, has come together to oppose DEI in our schools and has demanded the removal of the the DEI Officer position. This same group is also attacking Social Emotional Learning. The primary goals of Social Emotional Learning are to help students develop relationship skills, self awareness, self management and social awareness.

We, as parents, students, teachers and community members SUPPORT Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Social Emotional Learning initiatives in our school. We agree with the fundamental basis of DEI, which is to provide all students with a safe learning environment. 

Please sign this petition IN SUPPORT of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Carmel Clay Schools.
