Equity Initiatives Unit
We believe that each of us is the number one equity strategy.
The mission of the Equity Unit is to build capacity of MCPS staff to close the racial achievement gap and eliminate racial predictability in student achievement.
Enduring Understanding: Race and culture exert a powerful influence on teaching and learning.
- How do awareness, knowledge, and understanding of one’s own racial and cultural identity promote effective teaching, leading and learning?
- How do awareness, knowledge, and understanding of the racial and cultural identity of students and staff promote effective teaching, leading and learning?
- How can adults establish learning environments that are conscious of race and culture to ensure implementation of culturally responsive practices, policies and procedures?
