Equity and Inclusion in District 86
Inclusive and Responsive Academic Instruction
Our district is committed to the success of each individual student. It is because of this commitment that we have developed an equity lens to ensure that all of our students have access to the resources and support they need to pursue their ideal future.
Our district acknowledges and affirms the diverse representation of identities, intersectionalities, and lived experiences of our students and staff. We recognize that we are stronger when we are together and believe our diversity adds tremendous value to our school communities both in and out of the classroom.
Our district also understands that our focus on equity will enable us to not only identify existing barriers and inequalities but overcome them.
It is through this commitment to success, belief in diversity, and focus on equity that we will level the playing field for those in our district who come from marginalized communities. We will also achieve equity by actively auditing and altering our current practices so that we can be more inclusive and responsive as well as embracing the role that cultural context and self-identity play in education.
