JCPS Evaluation Results

JCPS workshop conducted by the
A&S Office for International, Diversity, and Outreach
Inclusion and Equity Interns
February 9, 2012

Summary:  JCPS teachers, administrators, along with students and faculty from Bellarmine University participated in an interactive workshop led by the Inclusion & Equity Intern Program.  There were approximately 26 in attendance.  During the workshop, participants received valuable resources and were able to participate in several activities concerning issues of inclusion and equity.

This interactive workshop was designed to expose Jefferson County Public School educators to resources and exercises that promote dialogue that is both meaningful and focused on issues of inclusion and equity.  Educators were able to recognize the impact, both directly and indirectly, the student-educator relationship has on behavior and performance.  Educators left with an awareness and sensitivity to barriers that make teaching and learning challenging.  Educators participated in activities that are offered through the A&S Inclusion and Equity Intern Program.  As a result of this workshop, interns have already been invited to conduct programming in two JCPS schools.

I would like to offer the following useful comments and/or program suggestions:

  • This was great.  To be honest I was dreading this because I thought I was going to listen to a lecture for 3 hrs.  I'm so glad I was wrong.
  • This was great!  I loved the honesty.
  • Thank You
  • I found this program very interesting and feel that it would work nicely in the high schools and middle schools.
  • I will use this as I teach diversity - these would be great for the workplace also
  • At first I didn't understand the need for all of the sharing, but then I realized the importance of building community
  • If a bibliography could be provided, I think it would be helpful.  Possibly have some middle school kids attend, to get their input.
