The Burlington School District proudly recognizes Black History Month and the important role our black community has played and continues to play in our society. Our goal is to be a district that recognizes, respects, understands and learns from each individual’s unique background, realizing that equality comes from tearing down boundaries and building each other up. It is our hope that Black History Month mean more than just a month of celebration and education, but that it be used as catalyst for continued, year round conversations and change, improving societal interactions and lives.
Continuing in the spirit of inclusive curriculum, and recognizing that Black History does not end when March begins, an inclusive Burlington School District-wide event will take place at the Burlington High School on March 9, 2018 at 6 PM to continue – not conclude – the community’s momentum in expanding dialogues, shifting perspectives, and boldly addressing present day injustices.
