OUR EQUITY LENS

equity lens icon

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.

QUESTIONS

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? 


In Beaverton, we aspire to have the  5P's

Equity Policy Task Force

In partnership with the School Board’s Equity Committee, the Office of Equity and Inclusion is forming an Equitable Policies Task Force to make recommendations to the district Superintendent related to the All Students Belong Policy (ACB) and corresponding practices.

The goals of the Task Force include: 

  • Development of a district anti-racist vision to guide the district’s efforts;

  • Proposed revisions to Board Policy ACB and a related reporting and response protocol; and 

  • Review of the Student and Parent Handbook for alignment with Policy ACB and related protocols.
