• Inclusiveness, diversity and equity update
    July 14, 2020

    At a Bellefonte Area school board meeting on July 14, 2020, Interim Superintendent Tammie Burnaford gave an update about ideas behind the district’s IDE plan to better address topics such as inclusiveness, diversity and equity. She publicly vowed to make this a priority at a school board meeting in June, following some of former Superintendent Michelle Saylor’s ideas behind global education that has been a part of the district for the past few years, in addition to enhancing what currently needs to be done to identify, recognize and accept differences among individuals within the district and community.

    A timeline was mapped out for the 2020-21 school year, which can be found in this link: Tentative IDE plan timeline. Please also remember that the district’s IDE plan is an ongoing effort that will go beyond just this school year.
