  • Mission:
  • The DIVERSITY PROGRAM in Central Kitsap School District has a mission to advance a climate of inclusion, diversity, and equity for all persons - students, staff, parents, and community - to the end of improving academic performance of students and supporting their continued success across school and life.

  • History:
  • The Central Kitsap School District began exploring the impact of diversity on the aspects of students, human resources, school culture, and academic performance in 2004. They convened a committee that gathered data from educational and socio-cultural research as well as from district and community to assess needs, causes of achievement gaps, and possible solutions. The Diversity Specialist position was born of that committee and designated to carry out the district work. That work,The Diversity Program, begun in 2007-2008 school year, is designed by identifying Diversity Team Leaders (DTLs), one from each building and department across the district. Those DTLs receive direct, extensive professional development and support their own building/department as well as the district as a whole in the implementation of common vocabulary, development/nurturing of relationship skills, and increasing professional tool boxes. The ultimate purpose is to ensure that all district personel from administrators to teachers to bus drivers have what they need to meet the needs of all students. This includes connecting with students, parents and community in meaningful ways, differentiating classroom instruction and designing culturally proficient methods of communication, discipline, and policy.
