Our Commitment to Listening and Learning
KSS Value: We ask questions and seek solutions. We find joy in teaching and learning. We foster open, honest relationships.
As we learn and implement JEDI principles and values, we will ask many questions. We will approach our JEDI mission with humility and an understanding that we have a lot to learn. Our objective is to provide a positive and educational experience utilizing JEDI principles and values for our students, our employees, and our Board. The questions asked will address creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace and environment, creating diversity within the staff and board of Keystone Science School, and respecting indigenous communities. As we continue our journey of education regarding JEDI principles, we will focus on listening to, and learning from, communities that are often excluded from the conversation. Such communities include women, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities, LGBTQIA+ communities, persons with limitations that interfere with their physical and mental abilities, people from low-income communities, and everyone who exists at the intersections of these groups.
