Student Sense of Belonging & Engagement

Remove barriers that impede the engagement of all students in curricular and extracurricular activities


The district will partner with Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) to boost participation in AP courses striving to close the equity gap.

Grants will be made available to staff in K-5 buildings through the Heren Foundation funds to purchase books with diverse representations. Building teams will work to research and select books that best meet their building needs with the purpose of increasing representation of all students' ethnicities and cultural backgrounds.
