Welcome WorkplaceQCSD has contracted with Pearl S. Buck International (PSBI) to support our efforts to address the short and long-term climate at the Quakertown Community School District. Beyond the recent incidents, we are striving to make systemic changes that result in improved student engagement, safety and overall learning environment. Pearl S. Buck International is working with several school districts in the area to establish their Welcome Workplace: a model for sustaining an inclusive, student-centered school environment, where all students learn, thrive and ultimately graduate to become productive citizens, contributing to our local and global community.More information about the PSBI Welcome Workplace can be found here. What prompted QCSD to select PSBI is their long history in the community and their research-based approach to diversity and inclusion, starting with an assessment to measure individual and cultural proficiency. Also, the WelcomeWorkplace definition for culture includes not only ethnicity and race, but age, thinking style, religion, gender, sexual orientation.
