Diversity, Equity and Inclusion


The Kearney School District will foster an environment of empowerment, empathy and inclusion to help all KSD students, staff and families feel valued.

KSD recognizes DEI as...



the conditions of having or being composed of differing elements; variety. Especially, the inclusion of people of different races, cultures, etc. in a group or organization.



fairness or justice in the way people are treated. In making these decisions we should be governed by the principle of equity.



the act of including: the state of being included: the act or practice of including and accommodating people who have historically been excluded (as because of their race, gender, sexuality, or ability).


To be a leading public school district that values and includes all students, staff, and families.
