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.


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? 

Equity Work in Action

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 has formed an Equitable Policies Task Force to make recommendations to the 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

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