Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Subcommittee

The Citywide PTO's Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) subcommittee was formed in September 2019 in an effort to provide a space for parents to focus specifically on issues of equity, diversity and inclusion within the Quincy Public Schools (QPS).



The mission of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Subcommittee of the Quincy Parents’ Council is to welcome and collaborate with families, Quincy Public Schools administration and staff, and community members and organizations to:

  1. Identify factors that affect equity, diversity, and inclusion in our school system.

  2. Assess their impact on students’ experiences.

  3. Advocate for change where needed to help all students achieve their full potential.
