Celebrating Cultural and Religious Diversity

Today’s Fresh Start School is committed to providing an educational and work environment that fosters equitable opportunities and an appreciation of diversity and commonality in a culturally pluralistic society.  Our community becomes more diverse every year, increasing the importance of sensitivity to families and students from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs.  Therefore, respect and acceptance for an education that is multicultural is promoted through curriculum, instruction, staff development and resource selection.

Curriculum materials and instructional strategies should assist students to examine knowledge, concepts, and information from multiple perspectives while reflecting students’ interests and backgrounds.  The school also recognizes and accepts its responsibility to uphold the Constitutional safeguard against establishing any religion in the schools.
