Equity Council

The Equity Council is a group of students, teachers, administrators and community members, many of whom began working together in May 2009, to identify and recommend ways that the District can be a more equitable place for all.
 
The Equity Council meets regularly during the school year to discuss whether schools are adequately addressing questions of race, culture, and gender and to find ways to improve. 
 
It's priorities are to:
  • Improve the level to which curriculum and instruction address students’ cultural and individual needs, including materials, learning modalities, learning objectives and assessment;
  • Ensure that students have safe and adequate opportunities to address issues of race, culture, gender orientation and religion by providing for student voice and perspective and a process for democratic action.
     
Both priorities seek to identify and remedy habitual patterns of unintentional racism and bias.
