The Portland Board of Public Education voted June 15 to adopt a new Equity Policy, following a first read and workshop on June 1.

The purpose of this policy is to respond to and redress inequities in our school system and identify the ways in which the Portland Public Schools will be accountable for centering equity in all aspects of our work. The policy establishes a shared definition for “equity” and serves as a guide by which to evaluate all other policies, practices, and procedures throughout the district.

We will be working on helping all staff and students know about, understand and act in a manner consistent with the policy. Read the policy HERE.
