Parma Priorities and Core Values
Over the last several years, Curriculum Associates has committed to extensive review of our materials, strengthening the ways in which our programs reflect and engage with a variety of cultural backgrounds and ultimately deliver equitable learning experiences for all students. As we move this critical work forward, we commit to putting a more deliberate focus on ensuring our programs uphold anti-racist values. We still have a great deal of work to do. Learn about what we’ve done and what we’re committed to doing.
