Our commitment to "Educate...Every Child, Every Day" includes understanding diversity that we, our children, our staff, and our families bring to schools, athletic teams, extra-curricular clubs/activities, as well as to the Fort Collins, LaPorte, Timnath, Wellington, and Red Feather communities we serve. Diversity is an asset to us all, and we are here to support the community, district, and individuals within our system. See the Equity and Diversity process map for details.
