Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
The Everett Public Schools Foundation recognizes that educational excellence requires a commitment to equity. Everett's students bring a wide range of assets, abilities, backgrounds, and needs to their educational experience. This requires removing barriers that perpetuate inequities which lead to opportunity and achievement gaps. The EPS Foundation is equity-driven, making intentional decisions that combat instructional discrimination and bias (both explicit and implicit). And eliminate disparities in educational outcomes based on socioeconomic status, gender, gender identity, gender expression, race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, or family background.
