Our Mission

To 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.

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

Our 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.


As we make decisions to support our work, we 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?
