7180 – Multicultural Education


The Board of Education believes that the learning environment in district schools must reflect diverse cultural traditions and contributions.  Such an environment allows students to develop a broader knowledge base, as well as a sense of respect for and tolerance of culturally diverse peoples, their customs and history legacy.  Multicultural education shall include but not be limited to, studies relative to the culture, history and contri­butions of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and Euro-Americans.  Special emphasis will be placed on human relations and sensitivity toward all races.
