This requires that the School Board attend to the effects of resource allocation, program development, and support systems on ALL students. This equity lens is designed to ensure decisions are made that provide for EACH student’s needs so the District’s vision can be realized.
» Equity in the Salem-Keizer School District will not be confused with equality where all students are treated the same. Equity will be attained when the achievements of our historically underserved students match the outcomes of students in the dominant culture, when underserved groups increase in capacity and power, and when barriers to student success have been mitigated or eliminated.
» This commitment means that student success will not be predicted nor predetermined by characteristics such as, but not limited to, race, national origin, religion, disability, geographic location, economic circumstance, mobility, native language, sexual orientation, gender identity,
or level of proficiency upon entering our schools.
» The Board will consider the impact of proposed changes on underserved, diverse, and marginalized individuals and groups. Changes in resource allocation, design, and implementation of policies and programs will be considered in light of equitable outcomes.
» Regular data collection and analysis will reveal the effect of resource allocation, policies, and programs on equitable outcomes.
» adopt an equity lens to guide decisions that come before the board;
» annually review the policies of the Board, specifically the executive limitations and results policies, to ensure the work of the Board is focused on equitable outcomes; and
» ensure that the communities of our students who are not achieving desirable outcomes are included in deliberations as decisions are being considered.
