Dear TCPS Parents and Community,

As communities rise up to have their voices heard in response to the killing of George Floyd and the racial injustice rampant in our country, Talbot County Public Schools adds its commitment to the movement for meaningful change. 

As Superintendent, I begin by acknowledging that public education can and must be an important part in promoting equity, dignity, and respect.  I am proud of the role TCPS has engaged in to lead conversations about race in our schools and our efforts to examine our practices and policies to eliminate barriers to educational equity.  As TCPS works to align our actions and behaviors with our values and beliefs, we commit to not just speak courageously but to act courageously as well. This means unapologetically interrupting acts of racism that manifest in our schools and community, actions that lead to the marginalization of our students of color.  

TCPS cannot remain silent as the trauma of inequity is compounded in front of us daily.  Instead, we must respond by modeling for our students the process of learning from history to advance racial and social justice.  As an organization, we must act to replace complicity with personal accountability.  This is not just our responsibility; it is our moral obligation.  

Thank you all for your commitment for it will make a difference in our community and our society as a whole.  

Kelly L. Griffith, Ed.D.
