Summary: The Albemarle County School Board is committed to establishing and sustaining a school community that achieves the division’s equity mission “to end the predictive value of race, class, gender, and special capacities on student success.

The Board strives to reject all forms of racism as contrary to the division’s mission, values, and goals. The Board desires a culture that embraces the collective responsibility to address, eliminate and prevent actions, decisions and outcomes that result from and perpetuate racism. The Board seeks to acknowledge the importance of considering these possible interactions while working to eliminate racism.
