Equity and Social Justice @ AACPS
Anne Arundel County Public School's first driving value is: "All Means All." We are committed to making all students, families, employees and community members feel welcome. Diversity is invited, nurtured, and celebrated. Everyone in the AACPS family supports educational equity and creates an inclusive environment. AACPS has committed to taking anti-biased and antiracist action to make all of our students feel safe and valued. We want our students to have an educational experience that provides "mirrors," where all of our students can see themselves reflected; and "windows" for them to look out and learn from the beauty of diversity that is found in the world. AACPS must proactively work to support all of its students and allow them to learn and grow from each other. AACPS will create an environment where students can express pride, confidence, and healthy self-esteem; without denying the value and dignity of other people. The following resources are ways we can support all of our students in Anne Arundel County Public Schools.
