Under the supervision of the Superintendent, the Office of Equity is responsible for developing and implementing short and long range equity goals that support the district’s strategic plan, mission and vision while specifically promoting a climate of equity and inclusion for all. This office will develop institutional policies, practices and programs that create a climate of equity and acceptance that respects, values and responds to the diversity of students, staff, parents, and community. The Office of Equity is led by the Chief Equity Officer who will lead the District’s efforts to sustain a culture of equity and inclusion for all students and staff by narrowing the gaps between the highest and lowest performing students. The Office of Equity will focus on eliminating the racial disproportionality, bullying, gender bias and other marginalized and underrepresented subgroups. We are committed to supporting student groups that occupy the highest and lowest achievement categories by planning, organizing, and directing initiatives related to diversity, equity and outreach while providing leadership to increase effectiveness in promoting equity and inclusion district-wide by developing and implementing the district’s equity plan, and serving as the district’s leader for equity goals. This office will work closely with school leadership and administration to create a strategic action plan that efficiently leads to positive student outcomes and professional growth and development of staff.
