EQUITY, ACADEMICS, POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH, and EXTRACURRICULAR PRIDE
EQUITY has been identified as the umbrella for all our strategic planning goals. Before our work began, we extensively surveyed the student body, staff, and parents and received input from community leaders and citizens. The collected data was analyzed both qualitatively and quantitatively by professors from Bowling Green State University (BGSU) to determine statistical significance. Also at the table during the data review process was the Maumee City Schools senior leadership team, in addition to two additional BGSU professors who have both researched, published, and presented around issues of racism, diversity, and equity. Data helped the district staff develop a long-term professional development program that includes providing resources and training for our students, staff, parents, and the broader Maumee City Schools community. We strive to provide culturally sensitive and responsive instruction because understanding students’ lives fosters a sense of belonging and helps all students to feel respected.
Maumee City Schools is a community that invests in every child, every day, to ensure all students find their success.
