Equity means that each student, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or socioeconomic status will have access to the opportunities, resources, and support they need to attain their full potential.


Racial equity means the absence of institutional
and structural barriers experienced by people
based on race or color,
that impede access,
opportunities, and results.





CPS understands that communities of color have experienced centuries of systemic oppression, and may need more as a result of these forces. Achieving racial equity requires proactive and continuous work to dismantle systemic oppression and white privilege in our schools. CPS is committed to altering systemic power dynamics and structures in order to hear and elevate underrepresented voices and to recognize and eliminate bias.
