We are living through tremendously difficult times, and all of us have been impacted by the health and equality crises our country is facing. As our nation struggles to overcome racism and economic disparity, our Leading Edge team is committed to supporting our families, communities, schools and teams during these challenging times.

We are all being called upon to be a part of lasting change, and we want to turn our collective pain into meaningful action. George Floyd’s murder is a painful reminder that racism persists in our nation. We now and always stand against racism, discrimintation, and acts of violence.

Please know that we are here for you and that our belief in the transformative power of education is stronger than ever. It is our mission to give our students the academic skills they need so they have ample opportunities later in life.

Our paramount goal is for every Leading Edge team member, student, family and partner to be truly heard and supported. Social and emotional safety that’s built on equality and respect is as important to us as the additional health and safety steps we are taking as a result of COVID-19.

We will continue our work to create an inclusive environment for our teams, students and families. However, we recognize there is so much more to be done. In order to keep these words and drive for change alive in our actions, we will continually ask ourselves, ‘What more can we do to promote equity and respect?’
