The Clementon Board of Education is aware of the social media posts of a district employee from June 2, 2020. We recognize the validity of the concerns brought to our attention as well as the anger, sadness and disappointment that resulted from this post. We are confident that the school administration is taking quick steps to address these concerns in a manner consistent with our shared vision of providing a secure, nurturing school climate in order to provide for the educational, social, and emotional needs of all of our students and staff. The Board of Education affirms our commitment to ensuring that the district is responsive to the values and priorities of the community. Those values include challenging racism and advocating for vital and necessary social change. It is a responsibility of educational institutions to address racism and social injustice through education and example, and we take that responsibility seriously. The Clementon Board of Education stands against racism and discrimination of any type. There is no place in the school district for individuals who act in a manner that is inconsistent with our core values. We recognize the historic and present day role of educational institutions in the important conversations addressing social injustice. Black Lives Matter.
