Working together with students, staff and families to help reduce and eventually eliminate educational disparities based on race, language, gender, sexual orientation, cultural differences, economics, and other dimensions of difference. The goal is for all students to experience academic, social and emotional success.
The district’s goal is to ensure access, opportunities and a sense of belonging for students and staff in their school community. This work is a natural progression of ELEVATE, our strategic plan, in which the community identified a goal to know every student by name, strength and need.
We have partnered with Corwin and their Deep Equity Frameworkto establish a safe climate that allows staff and students to engage in open conversations about persistent inequities, identify the root causes of inequities in educational systems, focus on practical applications of culturally responsive practices for classroom teachers, and create a long-term, sustainable plan for systemic transformation.
