Equity Working Group

The Miller Creek School District believes diversity is an asset, values every student, and is committed to building communities where students thrive. In order to do so, we must recognize systemic disparities in opportunities and outcomes and dedicate resources to address those disparities.

The Miller Creek School District: 

  • Raises equity consciousness of staff, students, parents, and community members so that we examine biases and eliminate inequitable practices.

  • Uses equity-minded pedagogy and assessments to ensure individual student growth and accelerate the growth of students who have been historically underserved through commitment of resources.

  • Uses equity-minded practices when making decisions, approving policy, hiring personnel, and developing and evaluating programs.

We’ve developed a superintendent’s Equity Learning and Action Working Group to help examine our current practices at a systemic level to eliminate these gaps. These efforts require a long-term commitment from our participants that includes both making recommendations and staying engaged as our work progresses over time.

Based on the feedback we received the Equity Group will focus on learning and action. 

Purpose of the Equity Working Group:

  • Develop a shared understanding of educational equity and equitable practices

  • Examine and provide input to the Superintendent regarding District policy and procedures to ensure equitable practices and systems

Immediate Equity Working Group Actions:

  • Adopt a working definition of equity

  • Adopt an equity framework tool that is used to examine district policy and practices

Future Meeting:

April 30, 2020

Time: 4:30-6:60
