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. We focus 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 Equity Advisory Committee partners with staff, students and community members to identify strategies in support of the Board's Educational Equity goals.
During the 2021-22 school year, our School Board participate in ongoing learning focused on cultural competency, equity, diversity and inclusion. Also this year, the Board and Tumwater City Council have agreed to engage in this learning together by participating in a 21-Day Equity Challenge. We encourage our community to join us in this challenge (starting October 7, 2021) by clicking the link to the left you can find more information, links to the webinars, and participate in the activities along with our district and city leadership.
