Our 2023-24 Diversity Goals
Establish a clear definition of what diversity means at FirstLine Schools.
The intentional recruitment, hiring and retention of committed and high performing staff that reflect Firstline’s student demographics at all levels – supported by clear diverse staff hiring goals.
Communicate regularly with students and families to build strong relationships and discuss academic progress and allow parent voice.
We have established an ongoing commitment to grade entry and communication with families about student progress and how to support student learning. This work is being done through our ReImagine Parent Partnership Initiative, which supports our goal of intentional family engagement and communication from staff.
Increase LatinX staff by 10% by the 2023-24 school year and by 20% by the 2026-27 school year. Define recruitment strategies for LatinX staff, as well as school and network goals.
Our LatinX student population has grown, and the LatinX student population is growing in our city, per recent enrollment data. We value representation of our student population within our staff population, and we must ensure that our LatinX students are represented in our staff.
