The Barrington 220 School District announces the creation of the district’s first ever position to lead the district’s equity, race and cultural diversity initiatives.

The Director of Equity, Race and Cultural Diversity Initiatives will serve as a member of the district’s leadership team and will provide leadership regarding the development, coordination, facilitation, and delivery of diversity-related programs, services, and support for students, staff, and faculty across the district. The Director will plan, develop, and implement strategic initiatives in collaboration with other parties to help increase awareness, enhance education, and promote advocacy.

While Barrington 220 has taken positive steps toward addressing the issues of racial bias and cultural sensitivity over the past several years, the district has more work to do in this area. “We remain committed to helping build a strong sense of empathy within our students and an ability to embrace differences. We need this position to lead those efforts. I want the Barrington community to know that we expect our students and staff to promote compassion and respect to all people regardless of race, creed, gender, or orientation,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian Harris.

The position is being created through the restructuring of administrator positions within the district and thus, will not increase administrator headcount. Click here to view the job description and to apply.
