Student Equity Development and Leadership

  • Student Equity Development and Leadership is a new area of focus for the Office of Equity. Our mission is to grow the capacity to interrupt systems of marginalization to support student learning and development. Our vision is that all SPPS staff are equity leaders in partnership with students, families, and the community.

    Student Equity Development and Leadership will support and develop a process for identifying, assessing, and implementing a systemic model for student equity development and leadership programming across the district. Student Equity Development and Leadership also works collectively with the Office of Equity team and school building advisors/facilitators of student programming to develop curriculum, programming, tools, and resources to systemically elevate student voice while supporting student academic success in SPPS.
