The Diversity Council fosters the continued growth of active and compassionate individuals in order to reduce intolerance, harassment/intimidation, and to promote social justice in a democratic society. The Diversity Council hosts annual elementary, middle, and high school conferences, as well as leadership seminars for pre-service teachers, classroom educators, and administrators. These professional development sessions explore diversity-related themes and provide resources that are aligned with New Jersey Student Learning Standards and state mandates, including, but not limited to Holocaust and genocide education, social justice, LGBTQ+ inclusion, and disability history. For 2022-23, the Diversity Council is committed to providing educators with the necessary tools to implement the new New Jersey 2022 middle school civics mandate entitled “Laura Wooten’s Law.”
