DEI Progress Fall 2020

In July 2020, Head of School Elizabeth English outlined key areas of focus in furthering our Strategic Plan commitments to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in her letter, Heeding the Call to Antiracism, namely:
  • More explicit and ongoing communication about what we are doing to promote equity and inclusion, including:
    • Transparency around curriculum development and our efforts to advance culturally responsive teaching.
    • A better understanding of the training we provide our faculty and staff.
  • An understanding of the strategies we are using to recruit and support teachers of color so that our faculty more closely reflects the diversity in our student body.
  • A clear process of addressing and resolving issues of bias and discrimination. 
    • Faculty and staff who are trained to support and facilitate this process.
  • Continue to expand Diversity Conference from a one-day event to more frequent opportunities for the community to learn together.
Archer has continued to make progress toward those goals as described in the full DEI Progress Fall 2020 update.
