Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in Tumwater
Tumwater School District is committed to providing a safe, caring environment where ALL students can achieve personal and academic success in every classroom, in every school, every day.
Imperative to this commitment is ensuring educational equity for those who enter our schools and buildings. Our initial work started in August 2017 and focused on providing support to our staff, including professional development, addressing issues of equity, cultural competence, and how to provide a culturally responsive environment that ensures success for all of our students.
Our School Board and district leadership team members participated in a "Board Equity Series" being hosted by the local Education Service District. This is a 5-part series running from February through May intended to create a shared community among the Thurston County and neighboring school board members with a focus on equity. Also during this time, our Board Members began the work of educating themselves, researching other school district policies and drafting a policy for Tumwater Schools to ensure educational equity for all students who enter our schools.
