Equity and Racial Equity Statement

MirkoIn 2018-19, CPS worked with the Disruptive Education Equity Project (DEEP) to provide training to CPS educators, administrators and school committee members on issues of racism, diversity, equity and inclusion. That work led to the development of a definition of equity and racial equity for CPS that was subsequently adopted by the School Committee.

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.

Achieving racial equity requires proactive and continuous investment in communities of color, who have endured centuries of systemic oppression. CPS is committed to dismantling structures rooted in white privilege, to hearing and elevating underrepresented voices, and recognizing and eliminating bias.”
