Regina Public School Board to learn from diversity report

15 recommendations have been made to the Regina Public School Board in a report on diversity handed to them this week.
The report was created by a committee established earlier this year after a motion regarding Pride celebrations was turned down sparking some anger and calls for the board chair to resign her position.
Regina Public School Board Superintendent of Student Achievement, Jason Coleman, says the report is one they can learn from.
“I think part of what we’ve learned is that we need to rely on the knowledge of the people we serve, and we need to rely on the knowledge of our students, and find ways to connect, and to build, to include all,” said Coleman.
The recommendations are split into five categories.  They are acknowledgement and recognition, policies and administrative procedures, creation of committees, displaying flags and division-endorsed activities.

One of the recommendations calls for a public statement that is shared with staff and students, identifying sexual diversity as a universal human right to be issued.
