EQUITY LENS

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 following 5P's:

About Us

OUR MISSION:

Transform the educational system in Beaverton to eradicate the predictability of student success based on students’ social and cultural backgrounds, explicitly related to race, socio economic status, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Theory of Action:

If we develop capacity in every leader to demonstrate unequivocal belief in the success of ALL students and eradicate the systemic barriers, then student successes will not be predicted by student subgroup membership​.
