 Equity and Diversity Strategic Framework

The Durham District School Board has created the Compendium for Black Student Success to enhance DDSB practices to support, enhance, celebrate and be responsive to our Black communities. As a Board, we recognize there is an importance in the voice and representation for closing gaps for our Black students.  Last year, the Anti-Black Racism Strategy Framework was released stating by 2036, racialized people will account for an estimated 48% of Ontario's population.  "Systemic racism occurs when institutions or systems create or maintain racial inequity, often as a result of hidden institutional biases in policies, practices and procedures that privilege some groups and disadvantage others."

~Anti-Black Racism Strategy, 2017   

There is a breadth of research supporting the need for the writing and implementation of this document.  This compendium will Ensure Equity by providing a framework to ensure the success for our black students. The document and its implementation support our Equity and Inclusive Education Policy #4107 creating an inclusive environment where all stakeholders have a sense of support and belonging.
