Equity means having high expectations for every learner and providing supports and resources so each learner can meet those expectations. The goal of our equity journey is to ensure we have schools where students feel safe, valued, heard, and challenged. Through our work with equity, we hope to build a sense of acceptance, belonging, and community throughout our entire district.
