Cultural Proficiency/Equity/Character Education

Our 5 Year Plan

In keeping with the Cherry Hill School District's commitment to the pillars of character education, namely respect, responsibility, and citizenship, our vision – beginning in the fall of 2017 – is to develop a Cultural Proficiency/Equity/Character Education five year plan that addresses the goals, structure and initiatives necessary to strengthen our school community. Our commitment and goal are to create a school climate in which variety by reason of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, social/economic class, family structure, physical or developmental abilities are considered assets and resources for personal and academic achievement. Our purpose is to teach our children and ourselves to live, learn, and work together in a vibrant and diverse world in which mutual respect is the foundation.
