District DE&I Data
This is an overview of our diversity, equity, and inclusion data, which represents a basic breakdown of the demographics of our school districts. The data is provided by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, based on their annual Accountability Report. While there are multiple dimensions of DE&I such as race and ethnicity, gender, as we endeavor through the DE&I strategic planning process, we hope to expand our data to include, but not limited to, school community sentiment on how we value DE&I; students, educators, and staff sense of belonging; student enrollment and outcomes on state testing such as the MCAS, and academic opportunities in Honors and AP course placement.
Race is a mixture of physical, behavioral, and cultural attributes. Ethnicity recognizes differences between people on the basis of language and shared cultural traditions.
Gender identity is how you, in your head, think about yourself. Percentages of males and females may not add up to 100% because of a limited number of “Non-Binary” students reported. Non-Binary refers to Individuals who do not identify as just female or male.
High Needs Students belong to one or more of the following subgroups: students with disabilities, current or former English learners, and/or economically disadvantaged students.
The nationality of a person is their place of birth. A survey focused on gathering data on the nationalities of Concord-Carlisle High School (CCHS) students was administered by the Intersections Club during the 2019-2020 school year. Over 400 students submitted a survey, and the results revealed that there are over 70 countries represented within the student population at CCHS.

Traditional maps have downplayed the size of the African continent in comparison to other parts of the world.
