School District U-46 is committed to the success of every student in every school. A primary objective of the District is that by graduation, all students will meet or exceed college and career ready standards and be fully prepared to become contributing members of society. It is our belief that it is the responsibility of this school District to give each student the opportunity and support to meet his or her highest potential.
In 2018, the District formed an Equity Committee to ensure these commitments are being met. The Committee aligned its work to the District Strategic Plan and created four sub-teams with the following goals:
- Student Achievement: Close opportunity gaps for all subgroups to ensure they have equitable access to all academic systems and programs
- Effective and Engaged Staff: Value, develop, recruit and retain a forward-thinking, highly qualified, and diverse workforce
- Community Engagement: Ensure welcoming, safe, inclusive and equitable school environments for all
- Excellence, Efficiency, and Accountability: Communicate allocation of funds to ensure equitable access for all students throughout all structures and systems in U-46
