Diversity Alliance Committee


DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) Initiative


The Hawthorne Public Schools will ensure that diversity in all of its forms is respected and valued within the educational community by fostering and promoting an environment of inclusiveness where all students, staff, and families feel welcome while being their authentic selves. 


The Hawthorne Public Schools will create an environment that provides opportunities to meet the entire population’s diverse needs, which will enhance student achievement both academically and socially. The Hawthorne Public Schools commits to promoting these principles and ideals to correct current and historical shortcomings and contribute directly to the quality of learning for all educational community members.
