Cultural Intelligence Task Force

August 27, 2021
By Paul Williams

At Traders Point Christian Schools, we are committed to providing a school environment that is Christ-centered, welcoming, and supportive of all students, staff, and faculty regardless of ethnic or national origin. We believe that each person was created uniquely by God with individual talents, strengths and attributes that are to be used for His glory. Our leadership understands the importance of training our next generation to think critically, speak intelligently, and respond biblically on issues related to ethnic diversity.

TPCS is committed to embracing the different ethnic backgrounds that reflect our school community and recognize their importance in fulfilling our mission. This commitment is supported through various efforts such as 

  • A strategic partnership with Mosaix, a relational network of leaders, educators, authors, and researchers alike, that exist to establish healthy multiethnic, economically diverse, and culturally intelligent organizations, that express a credible witness of God’s love for all people.
  • Professional development and training for our Board of Directors, Administration, Staff, and Faculty, that stresses the importance of cultural sensitivity in order to carry out our mission and to reflect our values.
  • Ongoing opportunities for student and parent input regarding the effectiveness of our ethnic diversity efforts

 

Cultural Intelligence Task Force

This school-based committee is made up of parents, administrators, and school board members, providing open dialogue and the development of strategies to ensure ethnic diversity in our school community. We would like to expand the makeup of the taskforce and encourage families of all ethnic or national heritage to consider being part of the team. If you would like to be a part of this task force please contact my Executive Assistant, Melissa Underwood at munderwood@tpcs.org

COVID Count Update

TPCS COVID Related Absence Learning Plan

Students with a COVID+ absence will be provided the opportunity for online learning within three days of a parent notifying the school. Online learning will remain available for up to 14 days. Attendance will be taken and will count towards the student's record.

Lower School students are expected to log in for Morning Meeting each day via the Google link their teacher provides. The teacher will determine if the student needs to log in for any additional class time and will provide the appropriate instructions and links via email.

Upper School students are required to log in at the start of each block period or class for attendance. The teacher will then determine how long the student is expected to remain online.

 

Training scholars. Making disciples. Graduating leaders.
