The MCPS Office of Equity and Diversity is committed to providing all students with equitable access to resources, programs, opportunities, and learning experiences. The development of this office was a deliberate step by the Superintendent to ensure that equity and diversity are embedded in the work of all schools and departments within Montgomery County Public Schools. The office is comprised of the Director of Equity and Diversity and the Administrator of Equity and Compliance.  Mrs. Wood-Setzer guides the efforts of the division to ensure that all students, staff, and stakeholders enter into learning environments where they feel valued, safe, and have the resources and supports needed to be successful in and out of the classroom. 

Mrs. Wood-Setzer is assisted by Mrs. Stacie Wright, together with division leaders, school administrators, department leaders, teachers, staff, and community stakeholders the office will design professional development opportunities, and initiatives aimed at fostering more awareness, advocacy, and action to create equitable outcomes.
