Seeking Excellence Through Equity in Our Schools


    The Upper Darby School District recognizes that it plays a vital role in the success of the entire community and serves as a valuable resource for families and community members.  We understand that some of our citizens feel unheard, uninformed, and/or voiceless about the services and programs provided by the Upper Darby School District.  Additionally, the District recognizes that addressing inequities and community divisions with the intent of working towards racial trauma healing is vital to the success of its communities.  To that end, the District aims to provide a vehicle for effective community input and solutions-focused collaboration through an initiative called Upper Darby Rising.


    As a next step in the Upper Darby School District's Comprehensive Equity Initiative, Upper Darby Rising invites all stakeholders in the community to help craft a detailed action agenda for transformative, sustained educational excellence for all students.  Through personal and collective growth, we all can continue to make the Upper Darby area a great place to work, live, and learn through Equity in education.
