The Avon Board of Education and the Avon Public Schools (together, known as the “District”) value diversity of backgrounds, beliefs, and perspectives and are committed to promoting an equitable and inclusive environment.  All students and staff, regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, disability, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic have the right to access opportunities and supports available throughout the District’s educational programs. 


The District recognizes that societal bias, discrimination, intolerance, and other forms of discriminatory practices can create barriers to student progress in public education.  The District is therefore committed to continue working toward identifying and addressing any barriers or practices that can lead to disparities among various groups in the school community, and enhancing cultural competence throughout the District’s educational programs, for both students and staff.  


We remain committed to promoting an equitable and inclusive educational environment that provides all members of the school community with opportunities, support, and resources that facilitate learning and growth.  To that end, we use our mission and statement of beliefs, detailed in the Blueprint for Excellence, to guide and inform our decisions, areas of focus, and actions.
