About the DEI Repository

BOCES of New York State has partnered with the New York State Education Department and Tangible Development to provide resources to support diversity, equity and inclusion in New York state schools.

An educator-led initiative

This DEI Resource Repository, established in July 2022, provides free, high-quality, resources developed by and for K-12 educators and education leaders. To access the collection, click on the Section Links area to find resources related to Diverse Schools & Learning Opportunities; Family & Community Engagement; Governance; Professional Learning; Student Supports, Discipline & Wellness; Teaching & Learning; and Workforce Diversity.

Please note that the Repository is still under development. Some section links may not contain resources yet.

This work is grounded in the draft framework on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion established by the New York State Education Department.

Vetted resources reflecting promising practices

The resources chosen for this repository have passed through a review process to determine whether they reflect promising practices within the field of diversity, equity and inclusion. Each resource is accompanied by a review document outlining its strengths, as well as opportunities for further growth or development, as identified during the review process.

Open to all educators across New York

Educators across New York state, including public, private, charter and parochial schools, are invited to submit DEI resources to the Repository to reflect the breadth and depth of DEI work being done across the state and to provide the field with opportunities for learning and growth.

Why a DEI Repository?

In April 2021, the New York State Board of Regents released a draft framework on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in our schools. The 37 district superintendents representing BOCES across New York recognize that there is extensive work to be done in our schools and school communities across New York as we strive for more diverse, equitable and inclusive educational environments. The resources provided in the Repository aim to reflect and support that work.
