  • DIB Task Force

    Preamble
    The time has come for Justin-Siena to intentionally consider how to continue to  form a community built on inclusion and equity. In the development of the 2019-2024 Strategic Plan, recommendations from the 2019 Lasallian Catholic Assessment Process, and responding to the needs of our national conversation on race, this Task Force on Inclusion was established to provide an opportunity for exchange, dialogue, and to suggest a pathway forward for Justin-Siena. The recommendations from this group are non-binding, but will touch on the curricular and co-curricular needs to hold honest conversations on race, equity, and inclusion. Likewise, this group will consider the cultural competencies and needs of Justin-Siena to best facilitate dialogue and growth.  

    Purpose
    The purpose of the Task Force on Inclusion is to develop recommendations in light of the Justin-Siena Strategic Plan, Lasallian Catholic Assessment Process 2019, and more importantly to create a truly inclusive school community. The group is ad hoc and its recommendations are non-binding but will be presented to the President for consideration.

Rooted in Mission - Our Commitment to Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Grounded in our Lasallian Catholic faith, Justin-Siena is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive place of belonging. As an ALLHEART community, we recognize that it is not enough to say, “I am not racist”; rather, we must be anti-racist, and authentically live out our Mission and Vision. We seek to build on our Lasallian commitments of inclusive community and social justice to be a school where students and adults are welcomed and supported, and where their faces, voices, and experiences are equally reflected and valued. We believe that the work of inclusion is a responsibility held by all and that we have the power to be the change the world needs.

Being ALLHEART means, We Believe,  We Love, and We Will work towards authentically living out our Lasallian mission.
