District Mission Statement
Elk Grove Unified School District will provide a learning community that challenges ALL students to realize their greatest potential.
Who Are We?
Educational Equity coordinates and manages equity-based work in the District. Educational Equity focuses on promoting equitable practices and decisions to increase the academic proficiency of students and close the persistent opportunity, access and achievement gaps. In the first year of existence, we provided leadership, collaboration opportunities, and expertise to build a vision and strategic plan of equity.
“That’s at the core of equity; understanding who your kids are and how to meet their needs. You are still focused on outcomes, but the path to get there may not be the same for each one.”
–Pedro Noguera, Distinguished Professor of Education in the Graduate School of Education and Information Sciences at UCLA
