Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Task Force

Fairview Park City Schools (FPCS) invites students, parents, staff, and community members to participate in a Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Task Force that will meet once a month throughout the school year. In support of the FPCS mission and vision of creating a community unitedthis task force will identify strengthsareas of growthand a plan of action as it relates to diversity, equity, inclusionand anti-racism in the school district.   

What this IS: 

  • A space to listen and learn from each other’s lived experiences within FPCS. 
  • Dialogue focused on identifying past successes, areas of growth, and a shared vision for the future. 
  • An opportunity to come together as a community to set collective goals, engage in solutions-oriented action-planning, and enact positive change in our school district. 

What this IS NOT: 

  • A time to argue, debate, demean, or put-down the ideas and experiences of other members. 
  • A one-time community conversation; this will be an on-going initiative and commitment to long-term growth in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism within the district.
