Equity

We will disrupt institutional biases and end inequitable practices so all students have an equal chance at success.

We are deeply engaged in work around equity, race and identity to better foster and support an environment in which our students, families and staff grow and thrive. We strive to be an anti-racist organization focused on eliminating racism, institutional bias, and racial and other identity inequities. Our work is focused in four main areas.

#

Institutional Practices

Our equity policy guides our work. We use an Equity Lens in our decision-making processes to reduce inequities, including disproportionality in student outcomes.

 

Adult Learning on Race & Identity

We support the adults who work with and surround our students— employees, parents, community members—as they learn more about equity, including race and identity.

 

#

Culturally Responsive Practices

We engage our families and community to identify culturally responsive practices. We work with staff to use these practices in their interactions with each other, students, families and the community.

 

Instruction on Race & Identity

We are committed to working directly with students on topics of race and identity. We engage families to identify tools and metrics that are culturally relevant to teach this content.
