Adopted by the Board, April 2023.
In keeping with the Quaker precept of “continuing revelation,” and in light of an ever-deepening acknowledgement and understanding of inequity and injustice throughout our country’s history and in the world at large, CFS has rededicated itself to identifying, exploring, and addressing racial, gender, sexual orientation, religious, socioeconomic, and environmental bias within and beyond our school community, from the curriculum and school culture to its policies and operations. At the same time, we celebrate the diversity within our walls, seeking opportunities to allow all voices to be welcomed and heard, to learn from one another, and to create – together – an intentional, loving, and inclusive community. All members of the extended CFS community are urged to participate in this critical work – personally, collectively, and institutionally.
