Burlington School District contracted with CIE over a year ago to help us develop strategies for affirmative recruiting that would make a large impact in a short time. In addition, we identified needs for professional development around cultural competence and affirmative recruitment that CIE helped us with. Dennis and Stacey were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Their experience in this area was unique and practical. Together, they helped us to set up a plan that we are implementing successfully with the goal of increasing diversity among our faculty and staff. Their trainings around affirmative recruitment and cultural competence have been well accepted. In fact, one school paid for them to return to do a full faculty training at the end of the year. We plan to continue to access the services of CIE as we move forward.
