COS Diversity and Equity Statement

 

Circle of Seasons values and honors diversity and welcomes students, families, and employees from communities of all socio-economic and cultural backgrounds, racial, gender and sexual identities, people of all abilities and neurodiversity, family structures and lived experiences.

 

Circle of Seasons' community is a rich tapestry woven from the diverse threads of our community members. We strive to create an inclusive environment in which the identities, experiences, and perspectives of individuals and communities are recognized, valued, and honored. As part of this work, we cultivate a shared understanding of diversity and inequity within social and historical contexts. We commit ourselves, as a school and community of practice, to reflect, assess, and act upon these values. 

Política de diversidad e inclusión

 

Circle of Seasons valora y respeta la diversidad por lo que da la bienvenida a estudiantes, familias y empleados de cualquier nivel socioeconómico, tradición cultural y religiosa, identidad racial, sexual o de género, estructura familiar, experiencia de vida y habilidad física o neurológica. 

 

Circle of Seasons representa a una comunidad diversa que busca crear un ambiente inclusivo en el que todas las identidades, experiencias y perspectivas, tanto individuales como colectivas, sean reconocidas, valoradas y respetadas. Para lograr este objetivo partimos de que la diversidad e inequidad son consecuencia de un contexto social e histórico. Por lo cual nos comprometemos a que nuestra escuela sea un espacio de reflexión y evaluación, además de generar acciones que reflejen estos valores. 

بيان التنوّع والشمول. 

 

تجلّ "دائرة الفصول" وتحترم التنوّع. وهي ترحّب بالطلّاب والأسر والموظّفين الّذين ينتمون إلى مجتمعات ذات خلّفيات إجتماعيّة وإقتصاديّة وثقافيّة متعدّدة بغض النّظر عن إختلافهم العرقي والجنسيّ والتوجّه الجنسيّ والقدرات والتنوّع العصبيّ وهياكل الأسر والخبرات الحياتيّة. 

 

إنّ مجتمع "دائرة الفصول" هو نسيج غنيّ محبوك من خيوط متنوعة تمثّل أعضاء مجتمعنا بأكمله. فنحن نسعى جاهدين إلى خلق بيئة شاملة تحترم وتقدّر وتقيّم كل الهويات والخبرات ووجهات النّظر. وكجزء من هذا العمل، فنحن نصقل تفاهم مشترك للتنوّع وعدم المساواة ضمن السياق الاجتماعيّ والتّاريخيّ. كما وانّنا نلتزم كمدرسة ومجتمع ممارسة لعكس هذه القيم والعمل عليها.
