ALBION – This past week the Board of Education and district administrators convened for a diversity training titled “Dismantling Systemic Racism” hosted by the Four County School Boards Association.

The training included detailed discussions on implicit bias, why the language we use is important, racism at an individual, institutional, and systemic level, and how to dismantle it in our schools.

Over the course of an hour, Albion board members and administrators watched instructional videos and participated in educational activities, expanding their knowledge of systemic racism and identifying preventative measures that can be taken to protect our families.

This was the first of many steps Superintendent Mickey Edwards has planned to guide board members and administrators through in order to promote a safe and inclusive learning environment for our students and our staff.
