    Equity is ensuring that each student and staff member has access to resources in order for staff to support students to reach their dreams and goals and achieve success. Everett Public Schools works to provide equity and access to all students and staff by implementing policies, structures and systems that remove institutional and social barriers.

    As part of the district’s strategic priorities, the commitment to equity will be guided by Everett Public Schools’ Board of Directors, strategic leaders, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council, and other district staff and students. In addition, Everett Public Schools will continue to be culturally responsive by expanding its efforts with strategic partners, community partners, and other resources.

    Equity of opportunity is key to the district’s mission to inspire, educate, and prepare each student to achieve high standards, contribute to our community, and thrive in a global society.

    The district's work related to diversity, equity and outreach includes:

    • Family engagement & communication
    • District staff professional development
    • Recruitment & retention
    • Student achievement & advocacy
