Educating for Equity

Who We Are

Educating for Equity (E4E) is a team of BTCS employees committed to creating a culture of equity, inclusion, and belonging across the district. The E4E team is working to dismantle discrimination and inequities that exist in education by researching and raising awareness about equity issues in our district and community. We seek to provide educational opportunities for all staff to learn and grow in their knowledge of issues surrounding diversity in order to transform our culture and instructional practices to be more responsive to injustices. We are dedicated to creating an environment that is welcoming, accessible, and affirming of all identities and experiences where all students can succeed.

E4E is sponsoring a logo contest for Tennessee High and Vance students with winners recieving $25, $15, & $10 gift cards.
