Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
River Valley School District is committed to a future where no learner is marginalized and addresses that all district stakeholders should be included and valued equally. RVSD ensures that all students can learn in a physically and emotionally safe environment.
The district has developed a district-wide diversity equity and inclusion committee to provide this assurance. This committee provides resources to create responsive, supportive, and inclusive learning environments. This committee, co-led by the Director of Rising Brothers and Sisters at Point Park University, Dr. Mitchel Nickols, comprises students, faculty, staff, administrators, and families and meets regularly to create an inclusive environment for all.
Additionally, Dr. Nickols and the committee provide professional development, assemblies, training to coaches, and mentoring to students and staff. This ultimately elevates awareness within the school community, developing a genuinely inclusive climate for all learners.
