Culturally Responsive Practices
Sycamore Community Schools is proud to be one of the most diverse districts in the Greater Cincinnati area. We strive to respect the diversity of our community through culturally responsive practices, teaching our students and staff about the importance of inclusiveness, empathy, and understanding.
Culturally responsive practices are intended to ensure that all learners are benefitting equally from instruction and classroom management practices.
A culturally responsive approach means being aware of cultural differences, examining teaching materials and practice, and adapting programs and interventions, as appropriate, to respond to different student needs. It also involves monitoring the effects of programs and interventions for all students, especially those from groups that have been historically marginalized.
The population of Sycamore Community Schools has changed over the past 10 years. Therefore, our environment must change with them. Through culturally responsive practices, we will cultivate empathy and obtain the knowledge of each other and our students to help everyone feel included every day.
