Diversity and Inclusion

Our goal is to increase participation and ensure that EVERYONE regardless of color, culture, economic status, or ability feel welcome and safe.

The Forest Road PTO, with the support of the D102 Administration, pledge to:

  • Educate – The Forest Road PTO will provide resources such as book titles, podcasts and articles that focus on anti-racism and inclusion.
  • Listen – We will be creating a brave space on the Forest Road PTO website where families can share their opinions and concerns with the PTO Board of Directors.
  • Partner – The Forest Road PTO plans to work with the Forest Road Staff to identify and support inclusion within the classroom.

Share your Opinions and Concerns

If you have a current student at Forest Road and haven’t felt comfortable or welcomed by the PTO, we want to do better. If you’d be willing to share your experience or advice, we commit to listening to you and working toward creating change for all families to become comfortable being involved.
