Equity Team Purpose
The Equity Team's mission is to close opportunity and academic gaps in our school for students of color. Our vision is to provide an equitable and inclusive working and learning environment for our students, families, staff, and community. Learning and personal growth are foundational steps we must take to realize these goals, as well as family and community integration. Our learning has been and continues to be guided by professional development with the district, team, and staff. Intentional interactions with parent/caregiver groups are essential in helping us better understand the strengths and needs of our community. Ultimately, our goal is to empower our students to be changemakers and lead antiracist lives.
