Policy on Cultural Diversity & Human Relations

KCS Commitment to Cultural Diversity & Human Relations
Posted on 01/11/2021

KCS would like to share a reminder about our dedication to Cultural Diversity & Human Relations. Our policy addressing these matters is a driving force in all that we do. 

The opening of the policy is as follows:

4.01 General Purpose. Kanawha County Schools is committed to the principles and practices of education that recognizes cultural diversity as an essential ingredient to the success of a democratic society and to the fulfillment of the schools system's mission...to educate all students to be productive citizens in tomorrow's world. This commitment is directed toward the elimination of racism and the removal of cultural barriers wherever they may exist in the school system, including intentional or unintentional discriminatory practices in classrooms, schools, offices, and other work places where positive self-worth, motivation, academic or job achievement, respect for differences, and democratic interaction are inhibited. That such conditions exist in any form is deemed deplorable, reprehensible, and unacceptable in society generally and, most particularly, in the school system where there will be zero tolerance. While reaffirming its mission of educating all students to be productive citizens, Kanawha County Schools will prepare them to live and work in a global, multicultural society by creating and supporting a teaching-learning environment where all employees and students understand and value commonalties and differences within and across various cultures in order to produce a harmonious community of lifelong learners. Contributions to this educational process will require staff, student, parent and community involvement, and interagency collaboration will be a critical ingredient in achieving success.
