Policy ACH Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Receives First Reading

January 7, 2022

On Tuesday, Dec. 21, Policy ACH: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion received first reading by the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) Board of Trustees. The policy outlines the division's commitment to advancing equitable opportunities for all students and to anti-oppressive practices through the identification and elimination of all types of discrimination. A robust community consultation process regarding this policy is planned for the new year, with second and third reading to follow.

This policy is part of LRSD's Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) and Anti-Racism Initiative. On Oct. 5, the LRSD Board of Trustees established a DEI and Anti-Racism Services Team (Office) to champion the work of addressing issues of systemic racism in a proactive, capacity-building and comprehensive way. The creation of this team included:

  • Reimagining the ECHO teachers' roles and responsibilities, effective August 1, 2021 
  • Appointing Bobbie-Jo Leclair Divisional Vice-Principal of Indigenous Education, Intercultural Understanding and Transformation, effective August 1, 2021 
  • Appointing Darcy Cormack, Assistant Superintendent of DEI and Anti-Racism Services on October 5, 2021 
  • Appointing Michelle Jean-Paul Divisional Principal of DEI and Anti-Racism Services, beginning Jan. 6, 2022

Members of the Leadership Team in LRSD have also been participating in professional learning about anti-racism and the division recently launched its Enrolment & Diversity Data Discovery Dashboard and the Who Are We? campaign.

Other work related to the DEI and Anti-Racism Initiative is currently underway in the division including a review of the Human Ecology curriculum, implementing a multi-year equity-based professional learning plan, developing an employment equity plan and continuing to expand and improve equity-based outcome data collection analysis and public reporting.

We will continue sharing updates about this important focus on our website.
