SciTech Educational Equity Policy

We are pleased to share our Educational Equity Policy. An essential step to ensure that we are creating a more equitable school is to explicitly define what social justice is and what a commitment to creating a socially just and equitable learning environment looks like for our students. We believe that all members of the school community should understand the concrete actions and strategies that ensure more equitable outcomes for students that have been historically marginalized. We are asking that you discuss this policy with your student, and you should feel free to email Dr. McNeil any additional feedback that you would like to share. We appreciate your engagement in renewing a commitment to this important work.

Survey for Return to In-Person Learning

We are working to create a safe and supportive learning environment for students who are choosing to return to in-person learning. The first day of the second quarter is November 9, 2020 and we need your information!
Families who chose in-person learning will attend school for two days and be remote for the other three days of the week. This survey is not designed to change a family’s original choice, but help to gather data from families who did not complete the original survey. Families should complete one survey for each of their SciTech students by Wednesday, October 7th.
Please click HERE to complete the survey.
