Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee at Hillcrest Elementary was created to address concerns of inequity facing our students and families.  We launched our committee in the spring with a book club series and have expanded to host a series of equity forums to foster community engagement.

In response to events in the summer of 2020, both nationally and locally, the Hillcrest PTA partnered with the HES administration to offer a series of community equity forums. While our work toward equity, diversity and inclusion is far from over, these sessions served to start conversations and to provide context for those conversations.

We are committed to creating a safe and equitable space for the entire Hillcrest community. Please contact us at hesequity@gmail.com with any questions or comments.
