The New York State Board of Regents launched an initiative to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in schools across New York State. As first steps in the initiative, the Board released a policy statement and a draft framework and call to action for all schools in New York State to develop policies that advance diversity, equity and inclusion as a priority in their schools.

PTA is a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.

New York State PTA is committed to supporting every child with one voice, no matter their race, ethnicity, zip code, income, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status or abilities.  NYS PTA recognizes that advancing diversity, equity and inclusion is an integral part of PTA’s work and its vision of making every child’s potential a reality.


The New York State PTA Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Toolkit is intended as a resource for PTA leaders across the state to develop and advance their own diversity, equity and inclusion plans and programs in their school and community.
