Equity and Cultural Responsiveness
The mission of Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is to provide an opportunity for all school-aged children to receive an academically challenging, quality education that builds character, equips for leadership and prepares for life, in an environment that is safe and conducive to learning.
CCPS promotes equity among all students, staff, teachers and community members. Board of Education equity policy, core values and CCPS system goals focus on teaching students the value of diversity and mutual respect. As a school system that values equity and diversity, our teachers, staff and administrators must model these values for children and the community.
Part of providing all children with an education that prepares them for life includes teaching children about their rights and the rights of others. Modeling the value of diversity and treating all members of society as equals reinforces our focus on mutual respect. Children learn not to judge others based on their identity, ability or disability, culture, background or skin color, but to support one another and know there is strength in diversity.
Board values, coupled with operational goals, drive the work of CCPS and address equity for all. CCPS is committed to working with the community to ensure our schools are safe places where all students are welcomed, valued and respected. We are here to support students, staff and families and aid in discussions about social actions that diminish the values of others. Our staff, administrators, school counselors, teachers, and school psychologists are resources of support.
