A message from NCSD Superintendent Steve M. Matthews
The Novi Community School District has for many years focused on issues related to social justice and equity. The events this past week have reinforced that work needs to continue. We can say that there is no place for racism and bigotry in our district, but our actions must show that we believe that.
If students and staff believe they are not seen or heard, we need to work with and for them so that they feel they have a place.
If we perpetuate roles and mindsets that reinforce stereotypes and devalue others, we need to change. We would encourage all to not only speak out, but act with conviction.
The Novi Community School District prides itself on its diversity, accepting others, honoring all. Our commitment is to continue that work.
Gratefully and Appreciatively,
Steve M. Matthews, Ed.D.
