“They discussed, in detail, FCBOE policies and procedures along with student and staff development programs to ensure FCS offers equitable and safe school environments for all, regardless of race, color, gender, or national origin. A consensus was reached on the importance of families reinforcing these lessons in the home.
Dr. White and Dr. Daniel emphasized FCS’s commitment to full implementation and continued maintenance of the Positive Action curriculum that started at the beginning of this school year, as well as staff development regarding the continuance of a school climate in which students can thrive and thrive.
FCS welcomed the Rome/Floyd NAACP’s invitation to meet regularly to discuss equality and progress within the school district as well as any issues or concerns. Both organizations reiterated the importance of the partnership to keep the safety and well-being of children in Rome and Floyd County a main priority.”
