    Racial Equity and Belonging Update & Response to BSU Demands


    On February 1, our Black Student Union (BSU) shared a set of demands with the administration and the community. These demands represent the voices of students who are earnestly invested in seeing College Prep live up to its mission; as such, we thank these student leaders for providing critical perspective and urgency to this winter’s equity and belonging work. Additionally, College Prep continues to build on the progress of last semester and created a summary of major actions, based on both what students are asking be prioritized, as well as standing goals. Please click here to see College Prep’s response to the BSU Demands and our commitment to ensuring that we are a safe and just school.

  • Response to BSU Demands by Monique DeVane, Head of School


    To our BSU and community—good morning. A week ago at Assembly, I shared that, along with a number of other administrators, I’d received a letter with a list of demands from the Black Student Union. I’m returning to our Assembly space to respond to that letter because I believe that how we speak to and with each other matters. We are bound together in a hard moment, trying to do critical work. We need to root ourselves in a collaborative spirit, so I want to both model and invite that. I know that there are stakeholders who may not be here with us here today, so I’ll also be sending the full text of this response to Trinity Thompson, BSU’s advisor, as well as making sure that it is sent to each of you and posted on the school’s social media.
