I hope you had a fantastic week as we head into the short work week before Thanksgiving. Please remember that we do not have school starting on Wednesday, November 23rd. I have one update.
We are forming a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee starting in January of 2023. Understanding our community's diversity is integral to the development of thriving learners. This committee will explore issues regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion through a variety of lenses, including, but not limited to gender, socio-economic status, race, culture, disability, religion, or sexual orientation. Victor Central Schools are deeply committed to empowering our students to celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion for all.
The VCS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee will be a collaboration between all stakeholders (Board of Education, Parents, Students, Community Members, Faculty, Staff, and Administration). It will serve as an advisory group to the Superintendent regarding systems, practices, policies, and experiences related to equity and inclusion. The formation of this committee is a result of the stakeholder feedback gathered during the development of the VCS Five-Year Strategic Plan and is one of our goals for the 2022-23 Management Plan.

If you need the application form in a language other than English or Spanish, please respond to this message via ParentSquare and we will get one to you as soon as possible. The application provides further details about the committee and the commitment necessary to be on the committee. Please fill out the application by December 7, 2022.
VCS District Council, one of the main shared decision-making groups in our District, will review applications received by December 7, 2022, to select committee membership. All applicants will be notified of their status by December 21, 2022. The committee will begin meeting after January 1, 2023.
I am looking forward to working with this critically important group. I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving! Don’t forget that our Victor Junior High School Musical, Elf, is premiering tonight at 7:00 pm at the JH/SH Performing Arts Center. There are two shows on Saturday at 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
