Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee

Welcome to the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee page of King Philip Middle School. Please read on to find out what EDI does with KP and also how you can help advance our mission.

Mission Statement

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee at King Philip Middle School aims to enable all students and adults in the KP Community to feel seen, heard, understood, and welcome to be active participants during their KP experience.

The EDI Committee at KP will collaborate with KP community members to ensure education and experiences are offered in an equitable, diverse, and inclusive manner. The aim will be to remove roadblocks to access, to encourage safe, open communication between families and staff, and to provide opportunities for further understanding of the benefits and broad applicability of an EDI lens in the educational setting.
