District Diversity

BCPS celebrates diversity in the district!  

BCPS has a Diversity Steering Committee comprised of teachers, administrators, and parents that continue to have a dialogue on how to increase our students’ exposures to different types of experiences.

Byron Center High School has an active student Diversity Club called AUA that meets weekly. Accept.Unite.Act.

BCPS Leadership Team attends the annual Diversity Kick-off, hosted by the Kent Intermediate School District, each August. This presentation includes a speaker and dialogue regarding Diversity.

BCPS participates in the quarterly Champions of Diversity meetings hosted by the Kent Intermediate School District. This gives the district a chance to collaborate with other districts regarding our Diversity efforts.
