The Department of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

  • Dear NPS Community, 

    Welcome Back! We are excited to return for the 2021-22 school year and continue our work together in the pursuit of equity, inclusion for ALL Newton Public Schools students, families and staff. 

    We begin this year with the announcement of an Assistant Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion - Dr. Maura Morse. Dr. Morse is a long-standing educator in NPS and has now joined the Department as we expand our reach and capacity to support educators and students in creating welcoming spaces for all. 

    We have been busy this summer, working with administrators and educators across the district to help build on skills that they can transfer into their classrooms and school communities. We have many projects in the works and look forward to our continued, and new, partnerships with all members of the NPS community. 

    "It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences." ~ Audre Lorde

    Sincerely, 
    Kathy & Maura
