In recent years the Halifax Regional School Board has
made significant efforts to continually meet the learning needs of
all students. It is essential for the school system to know who our
students are and what communities we serve. This helps the board to
provide appropriate resources and staff to help all students
achieve. The school board has a Race Relations, Cross Cultural
Understanding and Human Rights Policy (available on HRSB website
under policies) that is in accordance with the current guiding
Principals and laws in Nova Scotia and Canada, including the
Canadian Charter of Human Rights. The Charter details how we as
Canadians are expected to treat
each other with respect and equality regardless of race,
colour, ethnicity, linguistic origin, disability, socio-economics,
age, ancestry, national or aboriginal origin, place of origin,
religion, faith, sex, genders sexual orientation, family status and
marital status. At the same time we as educators and employees of
the HRSB recognize that certain groups within our society are
treated inequitably because of systemic bias. We want to educate all
of our students while promoting, supporting and celebrating
diversity. Part of this process is identifying our community through
the self-identification process so that we can provide inclusive
instructions and learning environments for everyone. We want to
eliminate any form of discrimination that may be a barrier to
student engagement and achievement. We have a responsibility to
teach students about bias, prejudice, stereotyping, harassment and
discrimination and remove barriers to equality, dignity and respect
for everyone. This is why we request families to self-identify each
year. If you have any questions, please contact the Administration
