Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The Mt. Lebanon School District is committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and welcoming school environment that recognizes and celebrates the diverse identities of all members of our school community, including students, their families, faculty and staff.   All students,regardless of background, identity, or ability, will be supported to reach their full potential and pursue their unique talents. The District will provide resources in a just and equitable manner and remove barriers to allow students to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.


In 2020 the Mt. Lebanon School District formed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Board Committee.  The Board member assigned to chair this committee is Dr. Justin Hackett.  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.
