Race and Equity Committee

July 2021:
disability pride month

TEOC is a space for Tukwila School District's Educators of Color to discuss experiences and how we hope to stay in the profession. Discussion will include ways that our district could support Educators of Color better so that we can support our students better. If you want more information, please contact TBD at TBD. We encourage any Tukwila Educators who identify as an Educator of Color to join our group: HERE

Our Vision

We will eliminate racial achievement and opportunity gaps in our school systems that perpetuates systemic racism through racist policies.

Student Voice

One of the key components of the Race and Equity Committee is our student voice. We would not have been able to write our policy without the input and direction of our students. To help facilitate more opportunities for student voice, Race and Equity Clubs have formed at the both the Middle School and High School.
