District Equity Work

The Office of Student Equity, Access, and Advancement:

  • Promotes, supports, and advocates for the vision and values around diversity, equity and inclusion at all levels of the Salem Keizer School District.
  • Analyzes student performance data in order to recommend school and/or community interventions.
  • Promotes inclusion and equity for all within our schools by examining issues of institutional equity and advising district staff on responses to incidents of bias and harassment
  • Reviews and analyzes student performance, program participation and behavior data in order to form policy and/or procedural recommendations
  • Develops and oversees the implementation of the district’s Equity Strategic Plan

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, underrepresented, and marginalized 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.
