The mission of Centerville City Schools Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team is to empower our community of learners with knowledge, skills and empathy to effectively engage a diverse world.

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Team has developed a District Diversity Plan which includes the following goal areas:

  1. Develop an awareness of one’s own cultural lens, diverse perspectives, and inequities in education and society.
  2. Increase community engagement and parental involvement.
  3. Recruit and retain staff from underrepresented racial and ethnic populations.
  4. Remove barriers that impede the engagement of  all students in curricular and extracurricular activities.

Team Members

Joseph Wang - School Psychologist
Cedric Tolbert - Intervention Specialist

In addition to the district team members, task forces consisting of staff from diverse roles in the district have been formed under each goal area.
