Equity Report Card Update

We are very excited to share our BCSD Equity Report Card.   Last year, the BCSD Board of Education established a district equity goal as part of their board goal setting.  The goal is here:


The BCSD will celebrate diversity and provide an equitable education for all students by working to eliminate race, ethnicity, class, gender identity, sexuality, and disability as predictors of student success.

As part of our work, we have created an Equity Report Card for the school district.  We use data regularly as part of our work as educators including this report card.  Due to the hard work of our teachers, our Beacon High School graduation rate has seen significant positive progress in the past two years.  We also have many areas across the district that we need to improve.  We will update you about our work on this at board meetings, the district diversity committee, and via email.  You can access the report card here:   Equity Report Card

We are continuing with several initiatives this year that have contributed  or will contribute to improvements in outcomes for our students:

  • Implementation of Restorative Practices and Talking Circles
  • Implementation of Responsive Classroom
  • Curriculum writing and implementation 
  • Dignity Framework Training for educators in the district
  • Equity Leadership Teams in each of our school buildings


We will share more about our efforts as the year progresses.
