Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Initiatives
Leadership and Partnerships
Ladue School District values the multitude of cultures, identities, and experiences inherent among members of its diverse community. The district is committed to honoring the innate worth of each individual and upholding the dignity of all stakeholders. Efforts to support students both academically and social-emotionally are ongoing as the district strives for continuous growth in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion, and access.
Dr. Jennifer Riesenmy serves as Ladue School District’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Coordinator. She collaborates with district and building administrators across all departments to assist with DEI-related action steps. She works closely with our Social-Emotional Behavioral Team, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Team, District Instructional Coaches, and the District Diversity Committee. In addition, she collaborates with our District Assessment Specialist to analyze data that helps Ladue School District measure the impact of DEI-related efforts.
Ladue School District is committed to creating and maintaining a welcoming, equitable and inclusive environment that is reflective of and celebrates our diverse student population. We uphold high academic standards for all students through culturally responsive classroom instruction, professional development, and sustainable relationships with community stakeholders.
