School District 197 knows that recruiting, hiring, and retaining staff of color is a critical part of ensuring we are best serving the needs of our students. With that in mind, and in alignment with the school district's Strategic Framework, the district has implemented a number of efforts focused on expanding the number of BIPOC staff members across the school district, including:

  • Creating district-wide goals around the recruitment, hiring, and retention of staff of color
  • Establishing a BIPOC Affinity Group
  • Instituting district-wide equity professional development
  • Offering optional 90-day check-ins for new BIPOC staff members

If you have any questions related to our equity work or our efforts to recruit, hire, and retain staff members of color, please do not hesitate to ask a member of our district team.
