NCCVT's Commitment to Equity
Vision: NCCVT is committed to fostering a strong community by respecting, promoting, and prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will explore and address any instances of systemic inequality and/or discriminatory practices and policies. We will honor the uniqueness of each individual and embrace diverse backgrounds and values.
Core Beliefs: We acknowledge, respect, and support the diversity and life experiences of all NCCVT community members by:
- Acting with integrity
- Agreeing to work collaboratively
- Listening and learning through community engagement
Rationale: The 2020-2021 school year focused on establishing foundational knowledge and understanding. This school year, 2021-2022, not only maintains a pursuit for knowledge, but also adds a shift to examining and changing our policies, practices, and systems. It also looks to fortify all leaders’ abilities to understand, support, and maintain work that moves NCCVT closer to educational equity for all.
