The Elk Grove Unified School District believes that equity is a fundamental component to student success. Equity is when all staff focus on promoting equity to close persistent gaps of opportunity, access, achievement, expectations and resources where equality and nondiscrimination are:
- Integrated into the mindset, work and lives of every student, teacher and staff member.
- Recognized as core institutional values and informs thinking, policies and practices throughout our schools.
- Inherently intertwined with academic excellence and the goal of developing leaders for a globally inclusive society.
With this belief, Elk Grove Unified will ensure that decisions, policies and practices are supportive of students’ learning, growth, and development fostering the ultimate goal of all students becoming college, career and life ready.
