Inclusive Communities

God saw everything that was made, and indeed, it was very good. Genesis 1:31

Edmonton Catholic Schools recognizes that we are all created in the image and likeness of God. As such, all human beings are inherently sacred and must be treated with dignity and respect. All efforts to support the inclusive, safe, and caring learning and working communities within our Division must be in accordance with the teaching of the Catholic Church and shall be grounded in the understanding of the person as a whole. A nurturing inclusive community is one in which each person is welcomed, accepted, and supported as a child of God, therefore any discrimination is unacceptable and will be addressed. All students, staff, and families of Edmonton Catholic School Division will be provided with an inclusive, welcoming, caring, respectful, safe, and Catholic environment that promotes the wellbeing of all and fosters community support for achieving this goal.
