We are inclusive and diverse
Big Picture Educational Academy is an inclusive and public charter school. This means it is not connected to any specific religious or spiritual faith and supports people to live their lives in ways they believe are best. Rather than providing one norm or dominant belief by which everything else is compared or which the school focuses on, Big Picture provides an equal playground: to play, believe, converse, and think. It is, therefore, openly inclusive and respectful of everyone’s beliefs when it is not impacting or replacing societal laws, human rights, or harmful to people.
Discrimination, sexual harassment, harassment, intimidation, and bullying are all disruptive behaviors which interfere with students’ ability to learn, negatively affects student engagement, diminishes school safety, and contributes to a hostile school environment. As such, Big Picture Educational Academy prohibits any acts of discrimination, sexual harassment, harassment, intimidation, and bullying altogether. This policy is inclusive of instances that occur on any area of the school campus, at school-sponsored events and activities, regardless of location, through school-owned technology, and through other electronic means.
