Superintendent DEI Listening Session #1 Follow Up + Survey

Admin team meeting

SAS Community,

Thank you to those of you who came out to our first listening session on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Pleasant Ridge on February 19th. It was extremely valuable to watch a community share their experiences, thoughts and ideas about racism and the ways it has impacted students in the school district. If you were unable to make it to the last session at Pleasant Ridge, there are 4 other upcoming listening session opportunities:

Thursday, February 27th -  6:30 - 8:00 p.m., Saline Middle School Hot Spot 

Friday, February 28th - 12 - 1:30 p.m., Liberty School Board Room  

Saturday, February 29th - 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., Saline Senior Center (located behind Saline Middle School)

Wednesday, March 4th -  6:30 - 8:00 p.m., Harvest Elementary 

In addition, we have created an online survey form, associated with the work the District is doing with the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, that asks about your experiences with inclusion in the Saline Area Schools.

Please consider providing input in this survey:

Online Listening Session- Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We've got a lot of work to do to make our school district a more inclusive setting in which ALL our students can thrive. But, I am confident, with the support of our students, teachers, support staff, administrators and community members, that  we are moving towards a sustainable model of inclusion in the Saline Area Schools.
