Cultural Proficiency & Inclusiveness in AISD

Cultural Proficiency is the understanding of an adult that their personal culture and background impact the students they work with. Inclusiveness is a way of being that shows respect, understanding and acceptance in which diversity is valued as an asset within the AISD community. This webpage is designed as a Cultural Proficiency & Inclusiveness (CP&I) clearinghouse for the AISD Staff community.

Statement

Embed CP&I into the work of the school district.

Plan

Provide ongoing, meaningful professional learning opportunities for AISD staff to engage in critical self-reflection on their interaction with students and their families in a manner that considers the diverse needs of all.
