Community Norms

Berkshire School strives to create a global community that reflects the world around us and the backgrounds, experiences, identities, genders, perspectives, races, religions, and talents that each member brings to our school. We believe that a diverse and inclusive community supports and respects all cultures, ethnicities, languages, philosophies, political views and sexual orientations that exist within and beyond our school.

A Community Norm violation is an incident where a member of the Berkshire School community acts, behaves, and/or makes a decision that disregards the School's Anti-discrimination Policy and Core Values. Norm violations refer to conduct, speech, images or expression that, in part or in whole, targets individuals or groups based on--but not limited to--their actual or perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion/spiritual affiliation, socioeconomic status, or other social identities.
