  • Increase the knowledge, skill, and practices of all staff related to cultural proficiency/cultural responsiveness which will reduce the achievement gap at the North Penn School District.
  • Reduce the number of Black, Hispanic, and Multiracial students who are disproportionately represented in special education programs and disproportionately suspended from school so that the risk ratio for these subgroups is no greater than 1.5 times more likely.
  • Implement practices that promote an increased pool of diverse applicants for positions across all employee groups.
  • Increase student, staff and family engagement engagement in cultural proficiency efforts from a baseline to determined in the 2018-2019 school year as measured by the Bridging Racial, Class and Cultural Differences rubric.
