Norton City Schools
Equity means that resources, experiences, and education will be provided by Norton City Schools to all students based on the needs of the student.
Equality means everyone is treated equally, in the exact same way, regardless of differences.
Equity and Equality are not the same.
Norton City Schools strives to educate every child for lifelong success as we provide a safe and productive learning environment. We strive to establish and support an inclusive climate because we believe diversity enriches the educational experience for students and faculty alike. We maintain our commitment to nondiscrimination and equality in all our programs, services, and activities. We are committed to fostering and celebrating compassion, kindness, and respect for diversity and individuality in all our school communities. Tolerance and empathy are qualities we strive to instill in our students, families, and community.
Norton City Schools strives to uphold diversity in our schools, community, and society. We believe in the importance of creating a school environment that develops opportunities for authentic connections, learning opportunities, trusted relationships, and success for all individuals. We believe in developing partnerships with families, stakeholders, and community supporters to ensure individual student success.
We commit to working with our City Leadership to do all we can to support and care for every student in Norton City Schools.
