Equity Team

Last Updated: 12/14/2020 3:58 PM

The Penncrest Equity Team is composed of teachers, administrators and school staff members dedicated to improving the climate at Penncrest High School.  Specifically, we are focused on issues related to students who feel marginalized, as well as the way we respond to specific, negative instances of racially or socially charged behaviors.  We have identified and developed working committees for the following equity needs:

  • Student Communication and Empowerment

  • A More Equitable Curriculum 

  • Community Outreach

  • School Procedures

  • Staff Development


This is difficult, urgent and necessary work.  Please contact us if you would like to join the conversation.  We are here to listen.
