Our Work Towards Equity and Antiracism

Raleigh Charter High School feels strongly that our school must take a clear stand in support of antiracism and equity. We join national protests in echoing that Black Lives Matter. We affirm our commitment to dismantling systemic racism. We stand with our Black, Latin X, and Native American students, families, and faculty and staff.

We invite all members of our school community to join us in these ongoing efforts. Working with the RCHS Board and Faculty Diversity and Inclusion Committees, the Raleigh Charter High School Administration and Board of Directors shares the following:

Commitment to Equity and Antiracism

In this moment of reckoning, our nation's history of systemic racism has come into the spotlight. We recognize that historically, schools have engaged in and reinforced inequitable practices. Our school is committed to evaluating our current practices and bringing them into alignment with antiracist work. We view this antiracist work as fundamental to our mission of educating knowledgeable, thoughtful, contributing citizens.

The purpose of this statement is to lay out our commitments to continuing and strengthening our work towards equity, inclusion, and antiracism.

  1. We will work towards antiracist teaching in terms of both our pedagogy and our course content. We will engage in ongoing analysis of content within departments, with special attention to the inclusion of voices that have been systematically silenced.
  2. We will provide diversity and sensitivity training as a fundamental part of professional development for all faculty and staff.
  3. We will provide ongoing support for our Black, LatinX, and Native American students, families, and faculty and staff, in particular, because they are underrepresented in our school community. This includes sustaining and creating safe spaces for those students to share experiences and receive support. We will continue to build our Diversity Parent Network.
  4. We will work towards diversifying our community in terms of both race and economic status. We will use our admissions lottery to provide greater access to our school for students of low socioeconomic status, and we will continue our outreach to Black, LatinX, and Native American families. We will bolster our support for our Black, LatinX, and Native American faculty and staff. We will strengthen our efforts towards diversifying our faculty.
  5. We will provide equitable access to all aspects of a Raleigh Charter education. We will continue to provide funding for food, supplies, testing, and extracurricular activities, and we will work towards providing even greater access to transportation.
  6. We will continue to partner with organizations that have common goals in areas of equity and antiracism, including community organizations and traditional public schools.
