Beaverton School District
In order to break the predictive link between student demographics and student success, we must apply the principle of equity to all aspects of our schools/departments.
In Beaverton, we aspire to have the 5P's listed below
elevates multiple perspectives from historically underserved communities
reflect the diversity of our student body
is safe, inclusive and affirming for historically underserved students and their families
articulates a vision for equity
eliminates gaps in access, opportunity, and expectation
In partnership with the School Board’s Equity Committee, the Office of Equity and Inclusion has formed an Equitable Policies Task Force.
As you make decisions to support your work, consider the following:
- Whose voice is and isn't represented in this decision?
- Who does this decision benefit or burden?
- Is this decision in alignment with the BSD Equity Policy?
- Does this decision close or widen the access, opportunity, and expectation gaps?
