2.) DRAFT Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) Equity Policy Statement
Background: In creating systems for Pathways to Equity & Excellence, the Board of Education needs to explicitly define equity. The draft policy is below:
Board Policy Statement on Equity
This Equity Policy expresses the Governing Board's commitment to equity, excellence and the achievement for an inclusive learning environment for all students.
Equity Policy Statement
We believe that equity is a set of actions that produce results that are not determined by differences of race, sex or economic status.
Equity is not the same as equality. Whereas, equality provides the same resources throughout the system on a per capita basis, equity demand allocation of resources based on need and support for each student's success.
Therefore, in order to achieve equity, AUSD will factor in student needs when making decisions regarding resource allocations.
The Board discussed the policy and it will be bought for approval at the bext Board of Education meeting.
Strategic Significance: Goal #9 Student Involvement and Engagement
