Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
In 2020 the Mt. Lebanon School District formed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Board Committee. Board members assigned to this committee are Dr. Justin Hackett (chair) and Mr. Andrew Freeman. The role of this committee is to communicate the work of the District Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Taskforce to the School Board and the entire community during DEI and full Board meetings.
The Taskforce is an advisory group of parents, teachers, community members, administrators, and other interested parties created for the purpose of defining equity, identifying achievement and opportunity gaps, setting Taskforce goals, and presenting its work to the Board. The Taskforce is an information gathering body co-led by Dr. Marybeth Irvin, Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education and an outside facilitator, Heather Bennett, JD, PhD, the Pennsylvania School Board Association’s Director of Equity Services.
