Dover High School will be participating in the School-SPIRIT (Student Problem Identification and Resolution of Issues Together Program) program that is facilitated by the Community Relations Service of the United States Department of Justice. The program “helps schools address tension and conflict related to issues of race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or disability.” On Wednesday February 19, 2020 (snow date of Thursday, February 20, 2020), Dover High School will be hosting a program run by trained facilitators in which students work in small groups and as a whole to identify and prioritize issues and develop solutions. Out of this work, a SPIRIT Council, made up of students, school administrators and staff, work to implement the solutions developed. Our goal is to identify 100 to 140 student volunteers who represent all student constituencies to participate in this day-long event. The issues identified by the SPIRIT Program and the steps taken to address them will be shared with the students, families, and staff as they are developed.
