In education, the term ‘equity’ refers to many things but central is the fact that all students and staff have a voice and that voice is heard and respected. Equity also refers to the fundamental principle of fairness. Inequities occur when biased or unfair policies, programs, practices, or situations contribute to a lack of equality in educational performance, results, and outcomes. Leaders in our District move forward to address equity with a series of conversations about what it means to make sure every child gets what they need to succeed.
Our District has focused on Deeper Learning as the pathway to equity. We’ve developed our Equity Beliefs which are the foundational beliefs that frame our work for all learners and our greater community. We are responding to the unique challenges and barriers some students face.
