RTSD Staff Book Study: "Belonging Through a Culture of Dignity"
To continue to help Radnor Township School District develop a strong and withstanding culture of belonging, dignity and inclusion, all RTSD staff members have been provided a copy of the book "Belonging Through a Culture of Dignity" to read over the summer as part of a district-wide staff book study. Staff will participate in conversations about the book over the course of next school year and sessions with the book's author(s) are also planned.
In "Belonging Through a Culture of Dignity," authors Floyd Cobb and John Krownapple argue that educational equity is based on the foundational elements of dignity and belonging, which they define as “the extent to which people feel appreciated, validated, accepted and treated fairly within.” The book seeks to make the concepts of dignity and belonging accessible and explain their importance in the implementation of educational equity initiatives.
In addition to the book study, climate surveys for staff and students are also planned next school year as part of continued inclusiveness efforts.
