ONGOING PARTNERSHIPS WITH ORGANIZATIONS THAT IDENTIFY HIGH-ACHIEVING STUDENTS FROM UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES CONTRIBUTE TO A WIDENING APPLICANT POOL. THOSE ORGANIZATIONS INCLUDE RIISE, OLIVER SCHOLARS, REACH PREP, EARLY STEPS, AND PREP FOR PREP. AMID THE NATIONAL RECKONING ON RACIAL INJUSTICE IN AMERICA, RIVERDALE HAS TAKEN SEVERAL SIGNIFICANT STEPS TO ADDRESS INSTITUTIONAL EQUITY AND STRENGTHEN ITS ANTI-RACIST AND ANTI-BIAS PROGRAMS. THE SCHOOL HAS PUBLISHED THE RIVERDALE STATEMENT ON CAMPUS DISCOURSE, EXPLAINING SKILLS FOR ENGAGING IN CONSTRUCTIVE DIALOGUE SO THAT MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY CAN LEARN FROM OPPOSING VIEWS IN THE CLASSROOM AND OUT IN THE WORLD. THE SCHOOL HAS FORMED THE DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION, AND BELONGING COMMITTEE OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES AND NAMED TWO ADMINISTRATORS TO REVIEW AND STRENGTHEN THE SCHOOL'S COMMITMENT TO INCLUSIVITY AND ANTI-RACISM.

THE SCHOOL HAS INVESTED IN INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADES AND TECHNOLOGY IN ORDER TO PROVIDE A FLEXIBLE ACADEMIC PROGRAM OF IN-PERSON, HYBRID, AND REMOTE LEARNING. VIDEO CONFERENCING TOOLS, SUCH AS ZOOM AND GOOGLE MEET, HAVE ENABLED TEACHERS AND STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE REMOTELY WHEN NEEDED AND ALLOWED SPEAKERS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO TAKE PART IN ASSEMBLIES AND CLASSES WITHOUT HAVING TO TRAVEL. VIDEO CONFERENCING ENABLED BRONX PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS IN RIVERDALE'S ENRICHMENT PROGRAM TO JOIN ONLINE SUMMER COURSES OFFERED BY THE RIVERDALE FACULTY AT NO COST.
