Non-Discrimination Policy

Daniels Preparatory School is an equal opportunity employer, committed to providing a workplace free of all forms of unlawful discrimination. It is the policy of the School that there shall be no discrimination with respect to employment or any of the terms and conditions of employment on the basis of age, alienage or citizenship status, color, disability, perceived disability, gender (including identity/expression), genetic information, marital status, military status/status as a veteran or active military service member, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion/creed, sex, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws (collectively, the “Protected Categories”). This equal opportunity policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment at Daniels Preparatory School including, but not limited to, hiring, placement, training, promotion, compensation, benefits, discipline, termination, and other aspects of employment.

In June 2020, The Daniels Preparatory School convened an Anti-Racism Task Force chaired by our director of equity and community life and comprised of students, alumnae, parents, faculty, staff, and trustees. The Task Force worked throughout the summer and fall of 2020 to evaluate and recommend school-wide protocols, policies, systems, and infrastructure to ensure that Hewitt becomes an actively anti-racist school. In November 2020, the Anti-Racism Task Force presented formal recommendations in the areas of Pedagogy and CurriculumCommunity and Care, and Leadership and Governance, which the Board of Trustees unanimously approved.

We know that the work to become an anti-racist school is ongoing, and we are committed to continued learning and growth. Below are some of the ways that Daniels Prep has already taken action around the Anti-Racism Task Force’s recommendations
